A mobile diary so you dont forget your raving times

When I was in my teens I went to so many gig sit is hard to remember them all but there was a period there of a year or so where I listed every single band that I saw in a diary. I think it came to about 385 if I remember rightly. I wish I had kept that diary. You'd have to spend a small fortune to see that many bands these days with current gig prices. I guess the modern day equivalent of that is the 'rave' music scene but, with so many punters being under the influence of one thing or the other, I have a feeling that not many 'ravers' would be able to remember everything that happened ...  More

A toolkit that musicians can keep in their pocket

I think it's safe to assume that we all regard Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters as a pretty good drummer, right?  After graduating through the early days of grunge with Nirvana and forming his own band, he is now regarded with near superstar status and has been seen behind the drum kit for artists as diverse as Paul McCartney, David Bowie, Queens Of The Stone Age and Tom Petty as well as his own offshoot band, Them Crooked Vultures. However, despite this wealth of experience, Grohl was still taken aback when producer Butch Vig asked him to drum along to a metronome to keep correct time ...  More

Join an online band and monetize your musical skills

After checking out this exciting and innovative music application for iOS I think that there is a pretty good chance that I've just seen one of the futures of rock n roll, as Springsteen manager Jon Landau was once quoted as saying. WholeWorldBand is a phenomenal concept put together by producer, filmmaker, musician and innovator Kevin Godley - the man who formed 10CC and made countless award-winning and groundbreaking videos for the likes of The Beatles, The Police, U2, Blur and Peter Gabriel. Hell, he even made the infamous and very risqué "Girls On Film" video for Duran Duran. ...  More

So... even though you may have recorded your song or album - whether it be in a proper studio or at home - we all know that isn't the end of the story.

Mastering is the process where an experienced mastering engineer uses specially designed equipment and software to correct any problems and Mercury Mastering is one of the top studios in California. They feature award-winning engineers who have worked with some of ...  More

Metric presents the next generation of interactive music apps

Its not easy being a musician these days. Gone are the days of recording and releasing an album and simply releasing it into the market place, playing a tour to promote it and hoping for the best. There have been plenty of ways that musicians and record labels have tried in the past to draw attention to themselves. Colored vinyl, limited editions, extra tracks, free gig tickets - they've all been flogged to death in the past. Now it's time to move on into the age of technology and find other ways of attracting attention and selling more units. Canadian band Metric have been around for a ...  More

All the hits of the last century at your fingertips

Let's just say for a start that whoever it was that took on this project of a billboard.fm music application has done an astonishing job. It started off as a pet project from a developer who loved listening to the music of the ages but was getting bored with seeing a song on the billboard charts, no matter what era, and having to hunt up a clip on YouTube or suchlike. So they developed this stand alone application where you can click on any song  that hit the billboard top 100 going back to 1946!!!! Pretty damned impressive, don't you think? billboard.fm is a completely free music and ...  More

The Doors' music isnt quite over yet

There was a period in my life in my teens when I listened to The Doors album LA Woman every day for a year or so. It's a long story so I won't bore you with the reasons but, to this day, I know every single musical nuance of that record. So it a pleasant surprise to see this new official iPad app being released by their record company, Warner Brothers, and compiled by their former boss - Jac Holzman. The Doors App is a music application that was put together by Holzman while he was gathering material and readying the 40th Anniversary release of the band's classic LA Woman album. After 16 ...  More
