Every guy picks up a guitar for the first time with the sole purpose of getting girls. It starts in a dorm room somewhere, as you awkwardly try to make your way through Stairway to Heaven, and, for those with enough determination, it ends on a huge stage with scores women waiting for you to finish your set. Whether you’re a pro or you’re still putting calluses on your fingertips, you’re most likely going through bucket-loads of picks. With the Pick Punch, you’ve got a new pick waiting for you just about anywhere.

Learning to use EQ means experimenting to discover which adjustments work and do not work for a given situation.
IK Multimedia introduces new iRig mic, mixer, and stompbox at CES | TUAW - The Unofficial Apple WeblogIK Multimedia is showing off new products in the North Hall of CES 2012 in Las Vegas this week, and they were one of our first stops around the Las Vegas Convention Center. IK Multimedia is behind the popular Amplitube software , and has seen a lot of success with the iRig guitar port for iOS , and its followup, the iRig mic. In fact, given all of that success, IK is really going all out with the iRig brand, introducing a slew of new products to both bring audio in and out of iOS devices. The most impressive new tool on display at the show is the iRig Mix , a mobile two-track mixer that's designed to work with your iPhone or iPad. At its base, this is just a really solid mixer -- audio comes in via two 1/8" jacks at the top, and while those jacks are meant for iPad or iPhone audio, they'll really work with any input of that kind.

The flipside is that you are on your own and, to put this gently, there will be no-one there to keep an eye on you.

When you have recorded speech or vocals for a song, you generally don't want anything but those speech or vocals. Regardless, you often end up with breathing and other noise you don't want.
