EMI as the Fool On The Hill?

May 18, 2010

Here is an interesting rant on TechCrunch about the ongoing Apple Corps/Apple/EMI/Beatles scrum that has, so far at least, prevented the Beatles from selling their music on iTunes, or any other digital seller, for that matter.

IK Multimedia introduces iRig for iPhone, iPad

May 10, 2010

I’ve written previously about IK Multimedia’s fun iPhone app, GrooveMaker. Today the company announced a new hardware/software guitar recording and practice solution for Apple’s iPad and iPhone called iRig.

IK Multimedia says:

AmpliTube iRig is a combination of an easy-to-use instrument interface adapter and the new AmpliTube for iPhone software for guitar & bass. With AmpliTube iRig, you can plug your guitar into your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad and jam out anywhere with world-class guitar and bass tones, from the leader in studio-class guitar and bass software.

Simply plug the iRig interface into your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad, plug your instrument into the appropriate input jack, plug in your headphones, amp or powered speakers, download AmpliTube FREE for iPhone and start rocking!

You’ll have at your fingertips the sound and control of 3 simultaneous stompbox effects + amplifier + cabinet + microphone- just like a traditional guitar or bass stage rig!

Here is the full press release.

Given what the company has accomplished with its excellent VST plugins and GrooveMaker, I am willing to bet iRig will be a handy iPad/iPhone extension for musicians.
