This time they have turned the iPad into a music control unit with the iRing system.

That is why I really like what Chromatik is doing – they give you the ability to practice your instrument (guitar, drums, clarinet, trumpet, etc) using popular music. Chromatik is part of a bigger project for schools to get sheet music. Whether it’s Rachmaninoff or Royals, musicians can keep their chops up and practice what they...
