Con­sid­er­ing that Ap­ple’s phe­nom­e­nal suc­cess in mo­bile tech­nol­ogy is pred­i­cated on the ipod, it’s quite fit­ting that a cor­ner­stone of IOS is mu­sic. How­ever, when we’re not lis­ten­ing to mu­sic on iphone and ipad, we seem equally keen to ac­tu­ally cre­ate and share our own song com­po­si­tions.

Af­ter an acous­tic solo from Drum­mer, we fo­cus on the kind of edit­ing and shar­ing essen­tials ev­ery­one needs to fi­nalise projects and share songs with an ex­pec­tant au­di­ence. right, let’s start cre­at­ing sweet mu­sic…
