We’re beyond excited to finally open the doors to Life Health and Fitness Whitestone. The Emperor card here also shows the possibility of an experienced person entering your life to assist you to gain financial advancement. Other niceties include the always-on tuner, which shows a little row of LEDs up in the top bar, and a shortcut to audio prefs up next to the tuner (this is great for switching in and out of background mode. The Loop Drummer lets you create and play along to some great backing loops, and has a powerful editor (although too many controls have been crammed into too small a panel). You can totally play through the amps in BIAS (it would be pretty hard to use if you couldn’t), but you don’t get any effects, and – because the app is modeling every part of the signal chain in real time – you get extra latency (even on an iPad Air). Mostly I don’t get along with the interface, which might be my problem, not the app’s. What I don’t prefer is that I can’t drag pedals to re-order them.
Amps and pedals are switched by tapping on popover menus, whereas speakers and microphones are toggled just by tapping them to cycle through the options. Emotional sensitivity involves tapping into how others feel to connect emotionally. Do this by tapping the “cab” section at the right of the signal chain in the BIAS editor, then tap the “cabinet model” popover and choose “bypass” from the top of the list. Here you tap on an effect, speaker or amp and then adjust its parameters in a control panel on the right. I prefer this panel to tweaking virtual knobs on a screen, which gets old fast. Pros: Great sound, huge catalog of effects and amps, beautiful interface, proper sliders for controls instead of stupid tiny knobs. It is a great time to start your own business even in this recessed economy. Use Coffeecup editor, used 1st page editor, there is more but I can’t even remember, I have downloaded and tried many, many cms software, website builders and editors. It was already one of the best-sounding sims in the store, and now it’s even better.
Pros: One of the best-sounding apps out there. The important part, though, is the sound, and AmpliTube works fine there. Extras: Adjustable everything. Works with BIAS desktop app which will model real amps just by listening to you play through them. Extras: Tuner, metronome, AirTurn, included backing loops so you play along, MIDI, set lists (handy for quick-switching setups when playing live). They sound great too, so you can play along with your favorite songs. It also has a great feature in its in-app store – you can preview effects as you shop. I won’t go into every feature here, but let’s just say you can go deep. You can also record to a virtual tape machine, and enjoy the drum-loop creator, which is actually quite excellent. Extras: Tuner, metronome, AirTurn, Loop Drummer, recording studio, tape recorder. Extras: Always-on tuner, metronome, MIDI, tape deck (for playing songs and looping them), 8-track studio (the first 2 tracks are free, then the annoying pop-ups start) and that unique signal-chain splitter. Amplitube also features an 8-track recording studio (it’s an IAP, and you’ll be reminded of this every time you accidentally hit the button to access it, which will be often). If you use different hardware to get your guitar signal into the app, then you’ll have to pay $20 to unlock it, but then you’re done.
You’ll notice it says “Strava iPhone App”, as opposed to the 3rd party device you may be using (i.e. GPS device). Similar to sit-ups, push-ups may be a rather mundane exercise, but they do your child lots of good when it comes to building strength. By pushing your body full force for a shorter amount of time, you’re getting a strength training workout, cardio workout and a full-body workout all at once. For a sport that – on the surface – is as simple as putting one foot in front of the other, there are certainly a lot of books out there about running, ranging from training manuals to meditations on the joys of pounding the pavement day after day. There are no mic options, but you can use an amp without a speaker (like with BIAS, ToneStack and AmpKit). You can also add the split at any point along the chain, so one amp can drive two speakers. Like the other apps, AmpKit lets you switch amp models and add effects pedals. My tip is to switch off the virtual speaker in BIAS, otherwise things get a little muddy. If all you want to do is switch the positions of two pedals, you have to do this twice.
