Recently I had the opportunity thanks to Roger from Roger’s Music to record the main demonstration audio from the latest flagship keyboard from Yamaha – the Tyros5.
After recording the main demo music, I decided to capture video snippets so you can see the Tyros5 from various angles as well as including some of the images provided by Yamaha.
With a world seemingly entranced by smartphone and tablet technologies, it is more than just a little bit disappointing that many devices including my iPhone 5s and iPad come equipped with a single speaker. They may be adequate for watching the odd short video, to listen to a sample of a song or to converse with friends – however when it comes to listening to music, it doesn’t exactly blow your socks off. True the volume is actually quite impressive on many modern devices these days, yet it certainly won’t fill a room or offer a wide range of frequencies.
We therefore have a few key choices… To equip ourselves with a set of headphones – fine for the personal experience. Secondly purchase a speaker system with an equipped iPhone or even iPad dock, although not everyone chooses an Apple device. For the best compatibility however with a wide range of devices, Bluetooth is the best option and with an Aux-In input also – the Xenta LT-201 Bluetooth Speaker includes the basic requirements that should appeal to any individual who owns a diverse range of hardware.
If you are a fan of point and click adventure games, you will have no doubt heard of the wonderful ScummVM software, that allows you to experience and relive this classic gaming genre on modern hardware. Playable on a wide range of computers, consoles and portable devices – ScummVM continues to improve its software and add new titles to its already impressive list of compatible games – ensuring that this gaming genre continues to be enjoyed.
One of the best features of iOS 7 is the ability to have your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch automatically update any apps that release new features, design changes or simply fixes a few bugs. This is not enabled by default, so you will need to manually turn on this feature to take advantage of background updating.
The classic point and click adventure game Simon the Sorcerer is already available for users of iOS, however a new Android version has just appeared featuring my version of the soundtrack as part of my ScummVM Music Enhancement Project.
In the last 20 years, the ‘Simon the Sorcerer’ game series has made millions of players fall in love with Simon. Now you can relive the renowned original adventure in a whole new way, exclusively on Android!
