Justin Meldal-Johnsen, a DrumCore user, has toured as bassist for Beck and Nine Inch Nails, written songs for his own project Ima Robot, recorded for acts like Tori Amos, Dixie Chicks, and Garbage, co-written with acts like Macy Gray, helped translate songs into a live show for bands like Gnarls Barkley, and produced a breathtaking new album with M83, "Hurry Up, We're Dreaming". Now, Justin is working on the debut album for his new band, "Digital Noise Academy. Check out an excerpt from the interview:
Digital Noise Academy, or DNA for short, is a super group. Members include Ken Andrews (Failure, On, Year of the Rabbit), Sharky Laguana (Volumen Cero), Jordon Zadorozny (Nine Inch Nails, Ima Robot). The band is about to release their 10 song debut album, and have turned to Kickstarter to fund their project. This is a unique opportunity to help support 6 talented musicians and get some really neat goodies along the way, including everything from T-shirts to recording sessions! Justin dropped us an email to explain the project and how you can help."

New Reviews of Sonoma Products
"GuitarJack will take a guitar plugged into its standard jack input and also has a mini jack stereo mic/line input so you can record in stereo and simultaneously record vocals and an instrument when used with an app that supports that function such as Sonoma's FourTrack... GuitarJack is ruggedly built and offers great sound quality plus robust headphone output for plenty of volume. We were able to use it with guitar straight out of the box with GarageBand and other amp sim apps as the default setting for the standard jack input is for Hi-Z with a decent level of input gain...Verdict: It's not cheap, but if you want a rugged audio input device for iOS that will slip into any pocket and take more than just guitar signals, GuitarJack is the way to go. We Like: Not just for guitar; solid contruction; easily portable; sound quality." - Guitarist Magazine June Issue
"The moment you unpack GuitarJack 2, you can tell it's in a different class to most iOS guitar interfaces...What makes this unit really stand out is the sound quality: using its own A-D and D-A conversion and high-quality input circuitry, GuitarJack presents a crisp, clean sound, which has a lot more life and vitality than that of most iOS guitar interfaces." - Sound On Sound June Issue
GuitarJack Model 2 Review by Alan Branch, producer, musician, Grammy winning engineer, and writer for Audio Media - "Brilliant design, pro features and class is throughout the GuitarJack Model 2 from Sonoma Wire Works, the high quality finish and solid construction fits perfectly to the sleek design of your iOS device. Whether you're recording voice and guitar or a stereo live feed from your gig, the speed and advantage of mobile recording cannot be matched by many others. With dedicated mic & line I/O options, 24bit AD/DA converters*, and a range of specifically design IOS software to match, it's a one stop shop for instant pro recording on your iPad or iPhone." - Alan Branch
"GuitarJack Model 2 is beautiful. Its chunky, industrial, metallic feel mimics that of a heavy guitar pedal and should give most active performers some reassurance that it can’t be easily broken. The smoked chrome finish is perfect. In terms of inputs and outputs, on one side is a 3.5mm microphone input, on the other a 1.4-inch jack input for your guitar, and a 3.5mm stereo line out/headphone socket. It fits on to your iPhone using the 30-pin dock connector situated at the top. All in all, it looks flipping fantagmagastic... This accessory is awesome, and is a must for anyone who wants to marry their guitar-god side with their tech-nerd persona." - Todaysiphone.com
"I think the easiest, and most fun program to learn to record guitar on is RiffWorks T4. RiffWorks, which is made by Sonoma Wire Works, is basically a "mini-DAW", designed specifically for recording guitar." - RiffWorks T4 recommended on Guitarify.com
