A few weeks ago I received a text from Jared, a good friend of our blog, who was excited to tell me about his new find. He said something like “iDrumTech is insane! I’m freaking out about it. It’s changing the way I tune my drums and it’s only $4.”
What’s The Big Deal?
We are excited about this app because we know full well that tuning drums is a major issue/mystery for many drummers. There are a few great options out there such as the Drumdial Drum Tuner, and the Tune-Bot Digital Drum Tuner, but these are rather expensive. iDrumTech is $4 and is a Drum Tuner, Drum Tuning Calculator, Drum Tuning Manager and Drum Tuning Educational iPhone App. Pretty sweet for $4, right?!
Here are some screenshots so you can see what the app looks like.
Here’s the official description from the iTunes App Store:
iDrumTech is a Drum Tuner and Drum Tech iPhone App. It has a Drum Tuner that introduces new technology which allows you to use your EARS while you tune drums. It creates a truly awesome Audio Visual Experience with your drum tuning, Drum Preset Library, Drum Tuning Calculator, Drum Maintenance Manuals and much more Drum Information.
The app does take some time learning but there are several helpful videos that should point you in the right direction.
You can download iDrumTech in the iTunes App Store here:
Last year a friend introduced me to the awesome and beautiful Outlaw Drums. Their story is as unique as their snares.
What’s more is that they are a Christian-based business! How awesome is that! Here’s how they describe it in their own words:
As a Christian-based business, we believe in treating people with honesty and integrity. We strive to match our service with the quality of our drums, and hope your experience with Outlaw Drums meets all of your expectations.
For as far back as I can remember, I’ve been listening to this one drummer, every single time he’s played. I am of course talking about my self! You see, I’ve been the greatest fan and greatest critic to my own playing.
If my own playing doesn’t get me feeling the deep groove, then it surely won’t help anyone else find the pocket either!
You Need To Record
I remember receiving my first-ever boombox with a “record” button on it. I thought it was weird until one day I decided to record myself practicing (or as my dad called it “smashing the drums”).
Today marks the closing of another year!
It’s been a monumental year in many respects. From transitioning to a new church, to having our first baby, 2012 made a beautiful dent in my life! Sure I’ve blogged less, but I’ve been enjoying less digital time in exchange for more analog time with my family!
With that said, I’m still extremely grateful for your support, encouragement and for being a friend to worshipdrummer.ca.
As I’m learning to balance my life and many projects, 2013 is gonna be a great year for our blog!
Here’s a little encouragement as we turn the page on 2012 [particularly around the 1-minute mark]:
