We’ve all been there fleshing out a track and thinking “Oh this is the chorus”; Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V. It happens in every genre, but especially to independent producers who do everything themselves. After all, if we want another chorus, we just need to clone another one and maybe add some new stuff on top right? Wrong.

Sanyo’s Eneloop series is one of the best bets for rechargeable batteries. Thanks to 300Guitars (great site for guitar tech by the way), I found out that they’ve expanded to the very niche market of guitar pedals. The Pedal Juice, is a lithium ion rechargeable battery pack that will run 9v to all your guitar pedals.

Okay, it seems a little weird to be editorializing on a game but Harmonix’s Rockband series is something different. Introducing what Konami did 10 years ago with the Guitar/Drum/Keyboard Mania series, to an American audience at the right time allowed Harmonix to tap into a video game market that isn’t just for kids anymore.
