TC Electronic announced that they have ported their Mac/PC TonePrints editor to the iPad.

Risskov, Denmark (April 29, 2013) -- TC Electronic added a whole new dimension to the TonePrint Editor experience, by announcing TonePrint Editor for iPad.

This full scale version of the TonePrint Editor will be available Q2 2013. A 1:1 port of the TonePrint Editor for Mac/PC, this mobile version of the TonePrint Editor runs smoothly and seamlessly on iPad. And like its bigger brothers, this version of the TonePrint Editor will be available free of charge through the iPad app store.

In order to connect TonePrint pedals to the iPad, guitarists can use the standard aftermarket camera kit, which allows for connection of a USB cable.

The TonePrint Editor allows guitarists to build their own custom version of a TonePrint editor from the ground up, from sounds to the range of knobs and everything in between. An intuitive slider-based UI, real-time changes and easy storing of sounds allows guitarists and bassists alike to easily and quickly craft the sounds they want to hear and pair them with the best TC Electronic effects out there.

But what really sets the TonePrint editor apart is the depth with which guitarists and bassists can craft tones. Far from ‘be-all-end-all’ pedals where the only real difference is which preset you load into the pedal, the TonePrint Editor starts at zero, and from there anything is possible, from the function and range of knobs to effect parameter behavior and everything in between.

Tore Mogensen, Product Manager for Guitar at TC Electronic comments: ”I personally think anything that interacts with an iPad is fun. But the intuitive, slider-based interface of the TonePrint Editor is such a perfect fit for iPad that it brings customizing TonePrints to a whole new level. I know it’s not a stretch to bring your laptop to rehearsals or a gig, but with the iPad, things are even more streamlined – throw it in your bag and customize sounds to fit the venue you’re playing, or whatever mood you might be in. Quickly, on-the-fly and with amazing results."

A blind horse wouldn’t be impressed, but this beautiful, double-horned instrument with one-of-a-kind engravings helped make luthier Tony Zemaitis famous.

Though they never reached the commercial success of some of their peers, the Faces have no doubt earned a place as one of the seminal rock ’n’ roll bands of the late ’60s and early ’70s. Combining influences as varied as instrumental funk à la the Meters, traditional folk music, and a heavy dose of rhythm and blues, the Faces brand of rock ’n’ roll can be heard in some way or another in the music of countless bands that followed. After the Faces folded in 1975, all five members went on to continue making great music, but their chemistry together was undeniable.

Oh no—it finally happened! Now the big question: How long before my verve for guitar recovers from Covid?

This past Sunday I awoke to a very un-Sunday sensation. Hovering on the edge of consciousness, as yet still incapable of contemplating what Sunday mornings are for (lounging in bed till coffee’s made and lunch plans are set, of course!), I was suddenly struck by a godawful stench. As one does, I wrinkled up my nose, lifted my head to look around in disgust, and took a couple more sniffs to see if … I don’t know—maybe I’d dreamt it? Or woke up incontinent? Then I tasted the putrescence. Then … nothing.

Fuuuuuuuck.
