MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson has teamed up with Pocketlabworks, Inc. to present the new David Ellefson Rock Shop app for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. The new app brings David Ellefson’s “Rock Shop” YouTube series to iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch as well as portable guitar and bass amp software tuned with David’s signature sound. BOOM!

The David Ellefson Rock Shop app works with Pocketlabworks iRiffPort Digital Audio Guitar Connection, providing everything guitar and bass players need for turning their iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch into a portable practice guitar amplifier.

Pocketlabworks technology integrates an iTunes music player right into the David Ellefson Rock Shop app; with Speed, Pitch, and Loop controls for playing along with your iTunes music. The integrated music player makes it easy to zero in, and slow down guitar riffs for learning by ear. Real-time processing adjusts the pitch automatically to standard tuning for MEGADETH‘s hit record “Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying?” from 1986, which was originally recorded slightly below standard guitar tuning. Dave had this to say:

“The Rock Shop is an outlet for sharing my music and business experience with my fans and the music community. I am thrilled to bring this connection to the iOS mobile platform in partnership withPocketlabworks. And how convenient to have my own Rock Shop app in my pocket, ready for practice on the road for MEGADETH’s upcoming North American tour starting on January 26, 2012!”
