I believe that it is important to stay up-to-date with technology to keep sounding fresh and interesting. I’ve long been a fan of some of the products produced at TC-Helicon. Here’s a great demonstration of their VoiceLive 3 Vocal Processor.
I find this vocalist does a good job at using this tool sparingly, which I believe is the key with tools such as this one.
Here’s another one of those great interviews from over at the Sweetwater Music YouTube Channel. This time it’s with none other than Chick Corea. I’m convinced there’s not a musician on the planet that doesn’t have the utmost respect for this beautiful musician, so it’s especially interesting to hear him talk about improvisation and choosing the musicians he plays with, amongst other subjects.
This iOS and Android app is such a good example of the tools that technology is putting at our fingertips. It lets you create chord progressions easily, then have a rhythm section play them so you can fine tune your improvisation skills.
I’ve recently discovered the great interview series Mitch Gallagher is hosting for Sweetwater Music. Whether it’s John “JR” Robinson, Chick Corea or Victor Wooten, these interviews are full of insight and food for thought.
Check out this quote of Victor Wooten’s: “…my music is not about the technique, but I have to use technique to produce the music I hear”.
