GarageBand for iPad 2 Video Transcript
-GarageBand for iPad is remarkable. It's got touch instruments. You can plug in a guitar and play real instruments if you want, but it's got touch instruments that I think are gonna be a huge hit with our users. Guitar amps and effects, 8-track recording and mixing, over 250 loops you can add to your songs. You can e-mail files around of your song to anybody, and it's compatible with the Mac version. So if you wanna start something on your iPad and finish it on the Mac, no problem. -Launch GarageBand and the first thing you see is an instrument browser, so these are the touch instruments Steve just mentioned and you can just swipe or tap through them, and it's incredible, they turn the iPad itself, you know, musical instrument that you can play wherever you go. Now, go ahead and bring up a keyboard to start showing this off, and you can see there's beautiful grand piano comes up and it fills the display. And the keyboard is not just a grand piano, I can tap on that icon right in the middle there and you could see all of the sounds that are built in. There are organs, electric piano, clavinet. Look at this, whole bunch of great synthesizers that are really, really fun to play. Well, iPad has an accelerometer built in and we use that to measure the force that my finger strikes to display. So GarageBand knows if I tap something really soft or really hard, and we use that throughout the app and that lets us create these instruments that are incredibly expressive and fun to play. Now, this one is set up in a way that when I tap a key and I slide my finger up and down the rest of the keys, it's gonna glide between the notes. It won't play the individual notes and we've added a blue dot that's gonna follow my finger, so you can see exactly what I'm doing. So I can tap a note and slide the note up, and it goes up like that. Pretty cool, huh? Lot of the smart instruments have this auto play dial and I can just go ahead and dial up the pattern. The strings fade away, you know, in these big bars, so the only decision I make is which chord do I want to play and look what happens with one touch of the finger when I tap in one of these chords. Just choose any chord. Ain't that cool? The next thing is recording. Let's say we have an idea. We wanna capture it so we can hear it later. Recording in GarageBand for iPad is incredibly simple. You can see right at the top of the screen that bright red button. That's an every touch instrument. So all we have to is tap on it. We'll get a count in and just play the part again. Right, you can see that now in the music timeline up here, we can see the area in green that shows me where my recording has gone and I can go ahead and play back. It sounds just like I played it. See, how it's really easy to do a recording. So that's just a quick look at GarageBand for iPad. It turns your iPad into a complete recording studio and a collection of this incredible touch instruments and we just can wait to hear all the creative things that people are gonna do once they get this in their hands. Thank you. -GarageBand for iPad, $4.99. It will be on the app store on March 11.

A new classic from these well-pierced pop punk giants. MxPx is a Punk/Rock band that was formed in 1992 in Bremerton, Washington. The band originally consisted of Bassist/Singer Mike Herrera, Yuri Ruley on drums, and their friend Andy Husted on guitar. This trio grew up playing garage shows and shows at their friends' houses until their popularity prospered. Andy Husted was later replaced by Tom Wisniewski on guitar to form what we all know now as MxPx. Originally the band went by the name of Magnified Plaid. The name was changed to M.P., an abbreviated form of the original, and was on posters for an early concert. Yuri, the drummer, made the posters; in his handwriting, periods become X's. The nickname caught on and the band has been going by MxPx ever since. Each letter of the name is pronounced individually. They played on Warped Tour in the 1990s. As part of a deal, MxPx was simultaneously signed to Tooth & Nail Records and A&M Records. After A&M was bought by Interscope, MxPx was dropped, leaving them unsigned. In 2004, MxPx signed to Side One Dummy Records, and released a new DVD and Acoustic EP under that label. In the past couple of years, MxPx has been accumulating fame. Their hit single "I'm Okay, You're Okay" received much radio time during the late nineties, as well as their second radio hit "Responsibility" from the album "The Ever Passing Moment". They appeared on MTV in 2002 and can still be heard on many rock radio stations. Their song "Play It Loud" is also in the huge movie production "Lords of Dogtown" and can be heard during its commercial. MxPx continues to work hard and rock stages all over the country. In October 2005, there were some rumours saying that a follow-up to Panic will be recorded in 2006 and released in early 2007.
In the summer of 1998 ? brought together by a slew of disparate-yet-alluring musical reference points ? high school friends Eddie Baranek (vocals/guitar), Mike Trombley (drums), and Mark Leahey (bass/vocals) formed The Sights. The trio began playing around their hometown of Detroit shortly thereafter, around which time Trombley, founding drummer, headed to California for what would come to be a three-year respite from the band and also the impetus for a revolving door of drummers, bassist and keyboard players. Undaunted , The Sights took to the studio and began recording their debut album, Are You Green?, at Jim Diamond?s Ghetto Recorders in Detroit . Originally released in June of 1999, Are You Green? was picked up by L.A.-based Fall of Rome Records and re-released the following year. Never big on rest, The Sights went to work on their sophomore album, Got What We Want (released in 2002). With this, the band?s freakishly precocious ability to blend frenetic garage rock, Motown and 60?s pop into something equal parts classic and catchy got them noticed. Got What We Want was released in the U.K. a year later, garnering them some very nice words from both the British press ("Got What We Want is a revelation - a treasure trove of sparky and wildly immediate songwriting." --NME) and the not-so British press ("At last - a new Detroit-garage band that comes in colors." --Rolling Stone). The Sights hit the road for a year of touring both countries, including a 10-week stint sleeping inside the group?s 1991 Ford Econoline van and stealing bagels for sustenance. In the spring of 2004, The Sights - now including relative newbie Bobby Emmett as organist/bassist and Keith Fox as drummer- caught the ear of ex-Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha, who signed them to his own Scratchie Records ( an imprint of New Line Records). And with that, the band headed back to Ghetto Recorders to record their self-titled third LP, The Sights, due out in April 2005. No small feat, the album combines the unobtrusive honesty of The Band with slivers of influence from The Sights? own personal record collections: Ike & Tina, Solomon Burke, Everly Brothers , Bob Seger, Tim Hardin and all manner of raucous songwriting. The end result is an album that?s classic, not derivative?filled with swagger and deference?and ridiculously catchy. Really.
