News: New Version of the Popular Jam-Along Music Player and Effects Box

New Version of the Popular Jam-Along Music Player and Effects Box

Los Angeles, CA, June 1, 2012 — BOSS is pleased to announce the eBand® JS-10 Audio Player with Effects, a compact, all-in-one jam-along companion for guitarists, bassists, and singers. Equipped with a powerful 2.1 speaker system, the latest GT-100 equivalent COSM® amps and effects, onboard over 350 jam tracks, WAV/MP3 playback, and more, the JS-10 expands on the feature set that made its predecessor, the eBand JS-8, such a big hit.

eBand makes practicing fun by providing users a convenient, plug-and-play jam station that’s always ready to go. While the original JS-8 featured just a single input, the eBand JS-10 is equipped with two guitar/mic inputs with completely separate effects path. This allows two musicians to play together, or a single musician to play and sing at one time, or music teacher to realize ideal lessons. The song recording function also lets musicians capture their performances at any time for instant self-evaluation or sharing on the web.

BOSS GT-100 class effects and COSM amps deliver instant world-class guitar tones, and there’s a wide range of top-shelf effects for bass and vocals as well. In addition, the JS-10’s newly expanded library of onboard backing tracks and rhythms gives players a huge selection of music styles to jam along with while building their chops. Users can also jam/sing along with their favorite WAV and MP3 songs by playing them directly from SD or USB media, or by importing them from a computer using the included eBand JS-10 Song List Editor software. The pitch and/or tempo of any audio played by the JS-10 can be freely adjusted. A Center Cancel function is also provided for removing solos and vocals from commercial tracks, allowing for minus-one music practice and karaoke sing-along fun. That’s right; remove lead vocals and guitars from your favorites songs!

With its impressive 2.1 sound system, the eBand JS-10 delivers a big, rich sound that defies the unit’s small footprint. The integrated subwoofer provides not only full and punchy bass and drums, but also a deep, satisfying low end for ultra-heavy modern guitar tones.

Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet

United Kingdom, United States 2012 87 min HDCAM 1080/25p English
In the 1980s, Jason Becker’s star was rising very fast. Not only had he made a name for himself as a guitarist of astonishing talent, but he’d also landed a spot playing in the legendary David Lee Roth’s band. But just before he set out on tour, Becker was diagnosed with motor neurone disease - and his world collapsed. Like most sufferers, he was given just a few years to live. But as the title exclaims, Becker has defied all the odds. This riveting documentary recounts the twists and turns of Becker’s dramatic life story, with the help of his friends and family. Now immobilised and cared for by an utterly devoted entourage, he continues to write songs, using an eye movement scheme devised by his father. Despite his immobility, his persona remains vibrant, and his fan base huge - and he’s somehow never short of a beautiful girlfriend.

Don Alder: UK tour details and anada's Got Talent Vancouver Showcase

From Drop Box

Don Alder: Canada's Got Talent Vancouver Showcase. This is pretty funny. I stop a couple of times cause I had a lifted nail that kept getting stuck in the strings. Needless to say Ive had better days but was able to get a standing O from the judges and some great comments, as you'll hear but did not make it to the next round.
