Does nothing for me sonically at all though I guess one can appreciate the skill involved. But to me that's not music. It's a computer. Simple as that. It's synthetic noise that imitates real music. Keep your guitars brother and your ukes.

Aye...digital cover of Uke classic. Seems to go against everything the Uke is doesn't it?
I love electronic music...in fact, I measure musical greatness on ones ability to play this (Jake- take note)

I love real instruments and I love synth. Good is good, and when something is, I can't say I mind it either way.

But while that app looks like it'll be handy for synth tracks, I just don't hear it working in that song. It was more like a proof of concept rather than anything really musical. But hey in the right hands and the right song, why not? :)

edit to add - Jeez I almost forgot to say good luck with your new instrument of choice! ;)

Interesting. Not for me. Way too synth and artificial sounding for my likes. I guess I'm just a luddite li' dat. Any noise that comes from a digital interface in which there is no actual contact between the player and the production of sound always leaves me with the feeling that it's completely devoid of any emotion or soul.

Color me "meh"

Heh, heh. Actually, two years ago on the way to UWC I spent the night in Memphis and the early band at one of the clubs down on Beal St. was an old dude on vocals and harp, a guy on electric guitar, and a young guy beatboxing. I was a little leary when they first started but by the end of the set I was pretty amazed - he honestly covered the sound of a jazz kit and bass with his mouth. Amazing talent.

Was it this guy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kNOcIKNLb0&feature=youtube_gdata_player)? I saw him with the Kandensky Trio last year.

I thought it was cool. Kind of has a Theremin vibe to it.

If the app's not too expensive I'll probably buy it.

Nope. Not him. The kid I saw pretty much stuck to makng very realistic sounds like a drum kit and bass - rather than the typical beatboxing stuff. He was so good that I kept looking around to see if somebody had snuck in to the back (there was a kit at the back of the stage) when I wasn't looking. :)

The thing I like about it is it's a new paradigm that really takes advantage of the playing surface. I've got garage band and you can do some cool stuff with it but it's pretty firmly in the "novelty" camp in my mind because it's less capable than any of the real instruments it mimics. I.e. I can do way more on a real bass or guitar than could ever be done on the Garage Band versions. Ditto for drums (if I played drums). The biggest problem with the typical music apps on iOS is they offer reduced capability (such as no velocity sensitivity on the 'keyboard" - no dynamics on everything else, etc).

Most of the other musics apps are thinly disguised loopers (well, for that matter, so is Garage Band to some extent). I don't want to preprogram a bunch of dance beats and then push buttons - I want interfaces that open new horizons.

The two apps that Jordan has worked on move beyond the idea of "dyah, huck, yuck, look, you can play a guitar on the iPad, hyuh, hyuh" into seriously capable "Look what I can do on this iPad that you just can't do on other instruments." It's pretty obvious that when he designed the interfaces he was thinking "what can this do for me on stage?"

I'm probably going to get the app in that video and experiment with some really low double-bass stuff on it. There are times when I really want to do those bone-shaking low-low swells that you just can't do even on a five string bass or most keyboards. If it works out I'm just going to quietly bring it to rehearsal and not say a word and just let our worship leader try to figure out who is driving a crazy low swell through the sub... :)

At my age my doctor recommended 1/2 a viagra, not for sexual reasons but to stop me rolling out of bed or peeing on my shoes. :) :) :)
