Pocket-lint GarageBand experiment - May the Force be with you!!

image

I had to share this with the iPhoneLife group, since several of our blog team (including myself) are musicians. Seems some of the team over at Pocket-lint.com decided to attempt to recreate the music score (or part of it) from Star Wars, specifically the cantina scene track using only GarageBand on their devices in jam mode. Listening to the final result, I couldn't help but smile and think that this is exactly what Steve Jobs was going for... Of course, the rendition they created might be considered a loose interpretation, but hey, it's a jam after all! Even an experienced musician knows that the spirit of the thing is the point, not necessarily the execution. You can check it out at the link above, and get the full back story (which is also a handy startup for GB noobs). I included an embed of the final rendition below. In case anyone wants to know, Han shot first, and good for him!

iHome announces new AirPlay speaker - iW2

image

We reviewed the iW1 last year here on the blogs and in print, and pretty much agreed it was a great product for wireless music streaming via AirPlay (see my review here), though maybe a little wonky to configure in my case. One aspect that I liked is that the iW1 is truly wireless; sporting a rechargeable internal battery that not only allows the device to be carried around the house, but still provides a charge to your devices when connected. The lower priced and eminent iW2 (due out April 1, 2012) will not have this feature, but otherwise will include the streaming excellence of the iW1. You can read on about the updated model (which is a bit smaller than the iW1) in the included PR release.



Album Flow brings Cover Flow to iPad!

image

Cover flow, being one of the most attractive electronic music selector schemes to come along since the diner booth jukebox, was left off of the iPad. I have tried a ton of ways to browse mobile music over the years. Cover Flow is the best, at least in terms of coolness factor and more importantly providing the illusion that I own physical recordings. Back in the day when you bought a record, you could take it to a friend's house, play it on their stereo, let them keep it for a week. You could open the jacket and read about the band, study the song lyrics, and catch a brief glimpse of that other world where all the cool people live. You had to imagine what it would be like to hang out with them though--no MTV, YouTube or reality shows. Cover flow brought back a part of the nostalgia of the experience. Album Flow brings cover flow to iPad.

iAlbums for iPhone

image

The new iAlbums app was designed to bring back the experience of buying more than just a song when you purchase music.  In the past when you purchased music it would typically come with the CD (or tape or record) along with a bunch of information about the song and the artist.  Since people began using programs such as iTunes to download their music they no longer got any of these extras.  They just get the song to play in their mp3 player.  While the music is the primary reason people like purchasing songs, it is much more enjoyable when they get the full experience.
