unrealBook for iPad (Sheet Music Reader)

Posted by on 03 May 2010 | Tagged as: Uncategorized

For the guys that use sheet music onstage, check out my iPad app! Over the years I have created my charts in Sibelius and saved them as PDF. I’ve always wanted a device that I could carry with me to replace the multiple binders that I use for all of my gigs. I would have one binder per band and sometimes they would be rather large (3″ binders).

When the iPad came out, I knew that I wanted to write an app that would help me recall my charts onstage and allow me to create set lists.

Here is unrealBook. It allows you can easily find and load your PDF files and does a few things more. Since I have been using unrealBook, I have left my binders in a pile unused. I’m using unrealBook on my gigs and it’s great!!!!!!

Things I have learned this year

Posted by on 01 Apr 2010 | Tagged as: Uncategorized

I decided to post a few things that I have learned this year.

All wire is definitely directional. What I did was rewire my amp again, but not with expensive teflon wire or solid silver etc… All I did was reverse the direction! The clarity was amazing. All this time that’s all it was. It took me a while to get the power amp section correct, I reversed the plate lead wires and this made a huge difference.

In addition, I realized that carbon comp resistors sounded twice as good if you use half the resistor value and double them up in series. GREAT SOUND! I can only imagine what it would sound like if you used 3 or 4 in series.

For pedals, it will usually sound better if you use thicker wire. It’s really hard to use the thickest wire possible, but the sound is amazing. Now you wish you never threw away that Weller Soldering GUN!

Happy New Year
