You have probably heard the old adage, “Build a better mousetrap, and the world will beat a path to your door.” The creators of ACPAD had better be prepared to find the world at their door, because they most definitely developed an innovative addiction to the acoustic guitar. Think of it as the coolest musical decal you can imagine; ACPAD is only 2mm thick, and it is a MIDI controller that seamlessly links the worlds of acoustic and electric music.

 

If you’re not a musicophile, don’t click away just yet. MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, and when you slap it on the front of an acoustic guitar, you have an entire spectrum of sounds and instruments at your fingertips – literally. The possibilities of this intense musical collaboration are limited only by your talent and imagination.

 

ACPAD integrates all the technology you would expect from a device born in 2015. It offers both wireless and USB connectivity, providing the convenience and stability needed today. An internal rechargeable battery also gives musicians the freedom they have come to expect. Equally important, the thin design and simple unification with your instrument will leave the quality of your acoustics undisturbed.

 

 

Truthfully, words can only do so much to convey the explosion of sound that ACPAD will allow you to create. Go ahead – check it out in action, and then get in line to get one for yourself or the favorite musician in your life.

Rapper 50 Cent Files for Bankruptcy http://citilyfe.com/entertainment/entry/339-rapper-50-cent-files-for-bankruptcy.html http://citilyfe.com/entertainment/entry/339-rapper-50-cent-files-for-bankruptcy.html

 Curtis Jackson, better known as rapper 50 Cent, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Monday. His net worth had been estimated to reach roughly around $155 million in May.

“Chapter 11 allows companies time to re-organize their finances while protecting them from creditors' demands. "Mr Jackson's business interests will continue unaffected in the ordinary course during the pendency of the Chapter 11 case,'' stated rapper’s attorney. It then added: "This filing for personal bankruptcy protection permits Mr Jackson to continue his involvement with various business interests and continue his work as an entertainer.”

Documents filed in Connecticut Bankruptcy Court showed Jackson's listed assets and debts to be in the range of $10 million to $50 million. Shortly before, the rapper was ordered by a jury to pay $5 million to Lavonia Leviston, of Pembroke Pines, Florida. She says that 50 Cent intentionally leaked a sex tape between the two. He is almost certain that his rival, rapper Rick Ross, is the one to blame because at the time, Ross and 50 Cent were engaged in a fairly public feud. Leviston said 50 Cent edited the video with his own narration and posted it online without her permission to taunt Ross because he knew that Ross is the father of her child. 50 Cent narrated the 13-minute video as a wig-wearing character named Pimpin’ Curly, and made explicit remarks about Leviston and Ross. She said the fact that it got 4 million viewers made her deeply depressed and suicidal.
