iPod saves band\'s tour

iPod to the rescue

touring in support of their upcoming release Boxing Twilight, recently found themselves in a bind as they were about to go on tour and three-fifths of their band could not make it. They needed drums, keyboards, and guitar to be replaced, as well as the fan-popular live performances from their drummer, Angel Ledezma. Using a digital video camera and their studio, Spectra Kakarot, the band put together a video of Ledezma playing drums in time with the rest of the band. Using Videora, a free converter application, the band converted the video and music to video iPod-compatible backing tracks. They ran the iPod through the board and a video projector and played along with the tracks and Angel's video all while controlling the order and volume of the tracks from the stage. "I bought the new iPod right when it came out to keep me entertained on the road. Then I found out that Angel, Sasha and Dahlman couldn't make it," explains band member Paul Heintz. "We spent a lot of time working up to this record and live show. Touring with Wheatus was a great opportunity. I hated to see it lost."
