Alien Apparatus Company, Inc. Releases A New Product For Solo Musicians That Puts Them In Control Of Their Shows
PHILADELPHA, PA - June 14, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Alien Apparatus Company, Inc. (www.alienapparatus.com), has announced a new product to help solo musicians control their shows. The new product, Solo Performer Show Controller, is a 6-button foot pedal device that connects to laptop computers via a USB connection. On the computer, play lists of backing audio files are created and played, along with lyric displays and lightshow events. The foot controller allows the musician to control the backing audio and lights in a hands-free manner while performing live on stage.
Solo Performer Show Controller plays mp3 files, aiff files, wave files, and midi files. It can control lights that operate using the industry-standard DMX512 protocol, and can display lyrics on-screen in a karaoke-like manner. The software also includes a utility for stripping out unwanted tracks in midi files.
Many musicians who perform as a solo act use backing music to accompany them. For example, a singing guitar player might play backing audio to supply drums, bass guitar, and keyboard parts. Typically, backing audio is supplied by either a midi controller or a laptop computer using a standard mp3 player program. Mp3 player programs are great because they give the musician a lot of organizational capabilities for managing play lists. Unfortunately, before the release of Solo Performer Show Controller, there was no system on the market made for the specific needs of the solo artist.
Solo Performer Show Controller is available for both Windows and Macintosh computer systems. For more information on the product, or to order online, visit http://www.alienapparatus.com.
