May 11, 2012OKEEDOKE STUDIOS ANNOUNCES “VCVCBC: THE ULTIMATE SONGWRITING APP” FOR IPAD
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Cincinnati, Ohio – May 11, 2012: Okeedoke Studios (okeedoke.com) announced the immediate availability of “VCVCBC: The Ultimate Songwriting App,” exclusively for iPad. VCVCBC is a revolutionary songwriting app that starts from any type of song element – lyrics, melody, chords or rhythm – culminating in a chord chart to share with your band or take into the studio for production.
The app is designed to help songwriters collect their ideas as quickly as possible. “I’ve got boxes of scrap paper with a few lines of lyrics or melody lines on them, and I’ve got hundreds of files that I’ve started in Reason, Logic or Pro Tools,” said Ben Thornburg, Visionary of Okeedoke Studios. “I wanted a way to focus on the song itself without getting sidetracked by the music production side. VCVCBC does just that.”
VCVCBC doesn’t require any musical proficiency. The melody mode can highlight a key and scale, but there’s no piano skill required. Instead of learning guitar chord positions, the app provides over 20 sets of common chord progressions. Any chord can be easily selected and dragged into a song. A rhythm can be recorded by tapping on common surfaces, like tabletops, chairs and steering wheels. The app suggests rhymes while writing lyrics as well.
“This is not a production or notation app,” said Thornburg. “This is a revolutionary songwriting aid that couldn’t have existed before the iPad.”
“VCVCBC: The Ultimate Songwriting App” is currently available on the App Store for $9.99. For more information on VCVCBC or Okeedoke Studios, please visit okeedoke.com.
