The world for musicians and songwriters just got so much brighter. In the AppStore you will now find a version of Garageband similar to the iPad version, waiting for you to make some great music with…. or um… At least sketches on a tiny keyboard that you can later use to make great music with! Get it here!
Hey! Long time no see! I know, you probably assumed we dropped off the face of the planet but really, we were just gearing up for something even more amazing. As you can see this blog has a great new look, that we are very proud of. We have also moved the blog from Movable Type to WordPress (word to the wise, if you aren’t an ultra-coding geek, stick with WordPress as your CMS). You will now see more than one post from us every weekday consistently (if not more), just like we used to do. The other exciting news is that we launched this site to gear up for the Musformation Book! It is finally, almost complete. To welcome us back if you can spread the word by clicking all those share buttons and let people know we are back we would REALLY appreciate it. Stay tuned for some GREAT content, we already have almost 100 new articles written, and waiting to go out and show you some great new things in the world of music. So much cool stuff to come and please let us know if you see anything funny going on in the new website. Thanks!
PS Thanks to Jackie and Matt for doing an amazing job and making this new design what it is!
Soundcloud has some exciting news – they now a great looking iPad App, that I spent the better part of today playing with. The default screen goes straight to the activity stream, which means discovering new music through SoundCloud is now dramatically easier for users. All the more reason your music should be on Soundcloud. Read more here.
The always awesome Songwriters On Process has up a great interview with the legendary hardcore/punk songwriter Walter Schreifels. A great read to get in the mind of someone who has been making songs that defined a genre for decades.
Yesterday, we talked about how Facebook Groups are the new messageboards. We figured we would put our money where are mouths are and start one for Musformation! You can now join The Musformation DIY Music Business Tactics Group by clicking that link. Hopefully it will grow into a great community to get your music business thoughts answered.
