Vector 49: Making music in the digital age

Vector is a news and analysis show focusing on the biggest stories, hottest trends, and most important issues in technology, past, present, and future. On this week's show, Jim Dalrymple of The Loop join Rene to briefly discuss Apple + IBM and then dive into making music in the digital age, including amp modelers like Line 6 and Guitar Rig, editing software like Logic Pro X and Pro Tools, and apps like djay and Capo.

Note: Jim was traveling so we had some noise and disconnection problems on the line. We did everything we could to fix as much as we could but there are a few drops, clicks, and pops. Sorry folks!
