We couldn't wait to get our hands on an iPad to try out Lilac Writer. After spending the first weekend with the iPad, we think this device will be very popular with songwriters and musicians. Since Lilac Writer is a web app, it is perfectly suit to the built in Safari browser.

In this video, Bill gives you a first look at using Lilac Writer on the iPad including sending new song ideas to your Lilac Account from email.

Lilac Writer Recording Tips: Presonus Studio One Tempo Matching

Studio One , Screencast No Comments »

This tutorial is the very first using Presonus Studio One. I have been evaluating Studio One Pro since it became available in beta. I think it will be interesting to songwriters recording on their own. It has more capability than Garage Band but less complexity than Logic or Pro Tools. I am always on the lookout for tools to help songwriters who are often working alone on demos

Currently Studio one is at release 1.0.3 which is pretty early for me to recommend recording software. It runs on both Mac and Windows.

This first screencast will give you flavor of Studio One. This is not a recommendation however. Presonus has the version 1.5 upgrade coming out at Musikmesse in just a few days.
