Everything from guitar effects to microphones and more, these products are the essential tools that Joey Stuckey uses to produce his high-quality recordings and performances.
Joey is please to announce his latest endorser, Extreme Headphones.
It might sound silly, but to me finding the right guitar strap is just as important as finding the right guitar! I have never been satisfied with any of my guitar straps... that is, until I got my first strap from Levy’s Leathers.
As a very busy session player and live performer, I need strings that don’t break, lose tonality or otherwise get "funky."
I am excited my fans will have this unique souvenir and fun musical instrument which truly allows us to share the gift of music! As a blind musician, sound is the only thing that I care about and Kazoobie Kazoos are unparalleled in their tonality and quality of construction.
I also use Kazoobie Kazoos for my own recording and performing. I use the Kazoobie HUMMbucker electric kazoo which is truly an innovative musical instrument--it is a metal kazoo with a HUMMbucker pickup like you would find in a guitar allowing you to amplify and use effects with your kazoo.
Think a kazoo can't rock?? Then check out "Crosstown Traffic" by Jimmi Hendrix which features the kazoo. I also use the Kazoobie Wazoo, which has a horn similar to an old style phonograph. This allows the kazoo to produce a much more powerful and robust sound.
To add even more reasons to come out to one of Joey's live performances, Joey has partnered with Kazoobie Kazoos. “As the official ambassador of music for Macon, Georgia – the birthplace of the kazoo – I am thrilled to partner with Kazoobie Kazoos to provide a limited number of souvenir kazoos to be givenaway and used during the audience participation parts of my concerts and inspirational talks,” says Joey. “I am excited that my fans will have this unique souvenir and fun musical instrument which truly allows us to share the gift of music! As a blind musician, sound is the only thing that I care about and Kazoobie Kazoos are unparalleled in their tonality and quality construction.”

Oh man, it's just too cool!
The main reason I love their software is... (drum roll please)... ease of use!! Now, pretty much anyone can convert or capture video or audio from any source - including the web because it's so easy.
The variety of products and great support from Applian Technologies is outstanding too!
I think the fact that Noren Products, Inc. has been in business since 1968 says much about why they are such a great company.
Here at last is the answer to the age-old problem of wanting to use your electric guitar to practice, but without having to lug your entire rig around with you!
AnarchyRhythms is a hybrid between an effect and a drum machine. It takes an audio input and applies a user-controlled matrix of amplitude modulation, bandpass filtering, feedback loops, internal oscillation and compression. It allows you to compose rhythmic patterns from the sonic timbre of the input.
It's simple with Apollo Multimedia. Their software is fast, easy to use and professional! I use the Apollo Multimedia Audio DVD Creator. This nifty little program lets you store audio files on a DVD and play it back on just about any DVD player. This is a great way to take all your music with you on long trips or to backup master recordings in the recording studio.
Realistic sound, innovative parameter control and great value for your money! -AND- Applied Acoustics Systems are always improving their products with new updates and more downloadable sounds!
String Studio: This is one plug-in you can't be without if you want some truly live-sounding stringed instruments in your softsynth collection! The best feature about this plug-in and what really separates it from the other good string plug-ins out there is the "Damper Module." In all string instruments there is a mechanism to mute the sound from the instrument. In the piano, a felt is applied on the strings when keys are released. In guitars and violins, the performer mutes the strings with his/her fingers. These muting mechanisms are not always totally quiet and usually produce some noise artifacts which has to be considered as part of the timbre of the instrument. In String Studio, the Damper Module is used to reproduce this same muting mechanism making the sound incredibly realistic.
Lounge Lizard: It comes with an extensive preset library that is simply inspiring. Giving you access to the Rhodes and Wurlitzer sounds, there is a choice of pure and true tones as well as a selection of processed ones courtesy of the high-end effect section. Especially designed for the electric piano so you don't spend hours tweaking external plug-ins or boxes. The effect section includes the classic tremolo, chorus, wah, and phaser effects as well as EQ, delay and reverb making it really easy to create your own distinctive customized tones.
Ultra Analog: Just about every vintage analog keyboard sound you will ever need.
Tassman 4: This plug-in is for finding and creating really cool and unusual sounds. I love it! It's one of my absolute favorites.

This is one of the best tools for self improvement and student instruction I have ever worked with! It's like having your own all-star jazz drummer!
I've always been a fan of "turn table artists" - those guys that can take a vinyl Lp record and make it do cool things, but being blind... uhhh, let's just say that Joey Stuckey and vinyl don't get along very well! :-)
I have always said that true service is more important than just about anything. This is true whether you are going to the doctor, finding a good mechanic - or even when you are working with a music gear manufacturer.
To enhance his studio and live performances and take his music production ability to the 23rd century, Joey has partnered
with Misa Digital makers of the "Kitara". "The Kitara is one of the most remarkable instruments to come out since the advent of the electric guitar," says Stuckey.
This amazing MIDI controller gives guitarists new and innovative ways to make music both live and in the studio.
While it is a little alien at first, I quickly got used to the difference of not having any strings on my guitar and the amazing things I could do with this controller that the traditional guitar MIDI controllers can't accomplish!
No matter how much I love my real guitar with it's MIDI pick-up, the tracking is never quite right and to get it playable, it takes hours and hours of trial and error. With the Kitara right out of the box, literally, you can start making some of the best music ever to come out of your imagination!
I love the right hand capabilities of this instrument, honestly, you have to try one out to truly understand! The unparalleled flexibility of this instrument is something that has to be played to be believed.
I am an adequate keyboard player, but, with the power of the Kitara my keyboard patches sound much more appealing and musically pleasing because I am performing them in my comfort zone, yeah, I am playing them on a guitar and a keyboard at the same time, get it? it's the Kitara!

Whether you're a professional DJ or a hobbyist, you must shell-out the $50 for this program. There are features, features and more features!
When I first got started and got in to doing the Wah thing, I used the standard CryBaby. I can’t tell you how many times I wanted to throw it out the window! Eventually, I just couldn’t take the constant annoying scratching sound coming out of it... Also, I usually would get so excited when Wah-ing, that I would end up turning the pedal off from too much forward motion.
If you're like me, you form an emotional attachment to your instrument. Not only do you spend a lot of money to get the best instrument you can afford for the right sound for your style, but you make it an extension of yourself. So, you can’t afford to trust the care of your instrument to just anyone... that’s why I use Nelson Custom Case Company guitar cases.
I love my PedalSnake! It is simply amazing. No more mess of cables like a spaghetti factory, just one snake that handles power, audio and MIDI control. And best of all, if you aren't an electronics guru that understands ohms, polarity and the like, then the easy-to-use website and knowledgeable staff at PedalSnake can fix you right up!
An amazing world of sounds is what you get with products from DashSignature!
When I first heard about the amazing products by iZotope I knew they would make a real difference in the great sounds I am always striving to achieve in my recording projects.

He has done sound design and/or music composition for arcade games such as Star Wars, Tron, Gauntlet and 720. He has worked at companies such as Bally Midway, Atari Games Corporation, Time Warner Interactive, Aureal and Creative Labs' Advanced Technology Center.

They are inventive, rich and just the right tool to keep your music production on the cutting edge!
With the advent of online communities like MySpace and Bebo, sharing video and photos are now a great way for family and friends to stay in-touch. For the professional musician, it is very important for fans to be able to be involved on an ongoing basis with their favorite artists and bands - and for artists and bands, it is a great way to sell product and grow your fan base.
Rich sound, flexible and intuitive controls, the best algorithms... what is it, you ask? Does it sound amazing? Is it state of the art? Is it a must for every producer and recording studio? Yes, it's YellowTools! And it just keeps getting better!
If you have ever tried to get a lot of depth and clarity from recordings without spending the money on mastering, I am sure that you have probably been disappointed.
So, what is a SwirlyGig I hear you asking?!
The Cameleon 5000 is a must-have softsynth for anyone that does any type of electronic music, rap, hip-hop or house.
Okay, if you are like me you have at times needed an audio file turned into a MIDI file for one reason or another. Usually, it’s the easiest way to make sheet music out of an existing audio file or maybe you want to turn one of your original compositions into a cellphone ringtone.
It's a no-brainer really, Ultimate Support simply have the best Keyboard Stands available for every occasion! Whether you are a performer or studio musician (or both) - if you use keyboards and synths at all you need one of these babies!
Ever known a great musician that you just had to have on your recording project, but alas they lived in another town, state/province or even another country?
