MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson and Pocketlabworks, Inc. earlier this week announced the new David Ellefson Rock Shop app for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. The new app brings David Ellefson‘s “Rock Shop” YouTube series to iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch with portable guitar and bass amp software tuned with David‘s signature sound.
Video footage of Ellefson demonstrating the new David Ellefson Rock Shop app during the 2012 NAMM (National Association Of Music Merchants) show, a massive music-products convention that is taking place January 19–22, can be seen below.
The David Ellefson Rock Shop app works with Pocketlabworks iRiffPort Digital Audio Guitar Connection, providing everything guitar and bass players need for turning their iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch into a portable practice guitar amplifier.
Pocketlabworks technology integrates an iTunes music player right into the David Ellefson Rock Shop app; with Speed, Pitch, and Loop controls for playing along with your iTunes music. The integrated music player makes it easy to zero in, and slow down guitar riffs for learning by ear. Real-time processing adjusts the pitch automatically to standard tuning for MEGADETH‘s hit record “Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying?” from 1986, which was originally recorded slightly below standard guitar tuning.
David Ellefson will demo the new David Ellefson Rock Shop app at the Winter National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM 2012) trade show, January 19–22, in the Pocketlabworks booth E5, located in the Apps Pavilion in Hall E. Demo times are scheduled for Thursday 11 a.m., Friday 10 a.m., and Saturday 10 a.m.
The David Ellefson Rock Shop will be available for sale from the Apple App Store. Pricing and availability will be announced soon.
