Ocean Way Microphone LockerSteve Vai is helping make waves in the iOS space, with his collaboration on the Ocean Way Microphone Locker.  This is an app available for the iPhone or iPad that enables musicians to pair the right microphone with the right instrument, as well as its optimum placement.  This is a boon for fledgling musicians, as getting the perfect setup is sometimes considered a lost art.

From Steve Vai’s website: “Hey folks, I am thrilled to announce a new app I have been working on with Allen Sides and ‘Metal Sidecar’ app engineers: ‘The Ocean Way Microphone Locker.’ It’s pretty remarkable. It gives stats on virtually every important studio mic there is, the instruments it’s best used on, and how to use it. An indispensable tool for anyone recording anything. Check it out.”

More information about this app can be found on its itunes page  or at Metal Sidecar’s website.




Introduced to good old Rock n Roll at an early age, Jams has spent his life in a love affair with music of all kinds. But as he says, there's nothing else in music to compare to a talented guitarist shredding their axe.
