SLASH:
REDEFINING THE WAY FANS EXPERIENCE MUSIC AND ALBUMS
WITH MUSIC TECH APPS
SLASH360” AND “AmpliTube
 
“In this day and age, if you can take music in a different direction, and show people all the different facets of how music is created and performed it makes the whole picture more interesting. That is our goal.” SLASH
We’ve moved into the digital music era, but multimedia albums have neglected to make the transition into this new era as easily as singles. Technology has evolved to create opportunities never before possible, such as interacting with artists in a live setting. Ideas move fast, and it makes sense an artist would be at the heart of new, innovative and forward-thinking ideas that resonate. Grammy-winningiconic guitarist and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee SLASH has introduced two new music apps which celebrate areturn to the full-length album, allowing fans to access his signature sound and push the boundaries of how music is released.
SLASH’s new album APOCALYPTIC LOVE moves into the interactive age and is now available as a multimedia app for users ofApple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod devicesSLASH has partnered with MATIvision to bring fans the SLASH360 app. The SLASH360brings you into the studio with SLASH and his bandmates Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators Brent Fitz (drums) and Todd Kerns (bass). “We recorded this album live, as we played it,” explains SLASH. “The app captures the energy of the band in the best way and MATIvision allows fans to experience the album just as if they were in the room with us.” MATIvision is the world’s first multi-camera 360-degree interactive music application. The SLASH360 app allows fans to follow every moment of the band performingAPOCALYPTIC LOVE in its entirety through the eyes of six 360-degree spherical, panoramic camerasSLASH360 is a music first. Never before have fans been able to control their experience while listening to the album at the same time. SLASH and MATIvision have taken the information that used to be limited to a CD booklet and turned it into a unique fan experience.
There are two versions of the SLASH360 app. The introductory version includes the #1 Active Rock hit “You’re A Lie” with lyrics and extras ($.99). Click here to experience: http://itunes.apple.com/app/slash-360-lt-apocalyptic-love/id524517739?mt=8 A second, full version includes the entire album performance of APOCALYPTIC LOVE, photos, lyrics and other extras ($4.99). Experience the full version here: http://itunes.apple.com/app/slash-360-apocalyptic-love/id524544296?mt=8.

For the more musically inclined fan, SLASH partnered with IK Multimedia to develop AmpliTube Slash edition which allows fans to play, practice and record with SLASH’s signature pedals and amplifiers on the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Mac/PC. Users can rockin a fully integrated multi-track recording studio with SLASH’s legendary Marshall amplifiers and his signature guitar pedals as well as comprehensive collection of SLASH’s guitar tone settings. “Myles and I wrote APOCALYPTIC LOVE entirely on tour,” explains SLASH. “When we weren’t performing we were traveling so by using my iPhone with AmpliTube and iRig I was able to capturethe ideas swimming in my head at 4AM.” “I’ll do some tweaks on the Marshall’s, but there are different effects available including distortion, chorusauto wah and more.” SLASH worked closely with IK Multimedia to make sure AmpliTube Slash faithfully reproduced his unmistakable sounds and tones. The apps are now available for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad ($9.99) and inside the new AmpliTube 2.5 for iOS with the inclusion of SLASH’s full deck of signature gear in the cutting edge AmpliTube Custom Shop desktop/laptop app and plug-in for Mac/PC ($79.99).
