Hal Leonard Releases First Two Music Apps Based on Best-Selling MusicPro Guides Series

Hal Leonard’s book and DVD series MusicPro Guides brings together the most experienced authors in the music industry to give established and aspiring music professionals quality instruction that yields professional results. Last fall, Hal Leonard re-launched its MusicPro Guides YouTube channel (youtube.com/musicproguides), which streams the high-quality audio-visual media that accompanies its books or actual excerpts from its DVDs. It’s been a huge success, reaching thousands of subscribers and reaching 1.5 million views.

And now, MusicPro Guides goes mobile. Hal Leonard has released its first two free MusicPro Guides iPhone apps featuring cornerstone authors Bobby Owsinski and Moses Avalon, with an app from Bill Gibson, author of the highly successful Hal Leonard Recording Method, to follow soon.

Watch for more MusicPro Guides apps in the near future.

Bobby Owsinski’s Delay Genie

In less than one second, Delay Genie calculates to the millisecond the exact amount of delay for any live venue setup and/or any recorded musical setup. The “Studio” tab replaces the delay chart in many recording studios that shows delay times for drums and vocals. Tap your BPM or enter it manually, and the app displays 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, and 1/64 note time increments, plus their respective triplet and dotted note companions. Just set your effects box to the number displayed on the app. The “Live” tab saves live mixing engineers the agonizing math required to suss out a concert venue. Enter room measurements, and the app displays delay time between the stage and speaker cabinets. It also accounts for differences in temperature that can affect live delay times.

Moses Avalon’s MyRecord Deal

MyRecord Deal is a mobile app version of the MARC (Moses Avalon Royalty Calculator), which music business professionals and educators have been using for over a decade. It calculates the profits and losses generated by virtually any US record deal, offering information on how much musicians actually make on record sales and the actual “penny rate” of each single or album. It’s a tool for both serious music professionals looking to budget a production and for anyone curious about how much a hit song is actually worth.

MyRecord Deal also comes with an in-app help book that explains record label accounting procedures, how labels calculate royalties, and how to negotiate effectively with a label to get the best deal for the artist.

Authors are available for interview. Review copies of their books are available. Download the apps for free: Connecting to the iTunes Store.
