Joe Gransden’s Big Band Goes Digital

Joe Gransden and his talented 16 piece Big Band have been playing together in Atlanta and all around the country for more than 12 years. The band is referred to as one of the busiest groups on the jazz scene because of their consistent, weekly performances and appearances. Before Joe started his band, he played trumpet in the iconic Tommy Dorsey Orchestra and Glenn Miller Orchestra.

Once Joe Gransden’s Big Band began to book gigs around the country and started traveling with all of their cumbersome paper charts and equipment Joe quickly realized the need for a better music reading solution. As soon as Joe heard about using digital music charts and AirTurn products he took the plunge and got Apple iPad Pros, goSTANDs, MANOS universal tablet holders, and DUO footswitches for everyone in his band. Joe explained to us that “going digital and going with the AirTurn foot pedals and AirTurn stands has completely enhanced our performance.”

Now Mike can perform seamlessly without touching his tablet or carrying around a heavy book of songs. Plus, his new gear is ultra-portable!

Gaming & Assistive Tech with AirTurn

Gaming & Assistive Tech with AirTurn

Since their inception, video games have been largely inaccessible for limited mobility gamers. From input options to ease of use, the industry has failed to truly support these gamers. All of that changed in the Fall of 2018 when Microsoft released the Xbox Adaptive Controller, a large programmable and expandable controller designed for making gaming more accessible for limited mobility gamers. This initiative vastly improves gaming options and experiences for these gamers.


In addition to the Xbox Adaptive Controller, there are a number of various external switches that can be plugged into the Adaptive Controller depending on what type of mobility is required. However, many of these switches are out of the price range for some gamers.

 

Welcome the AirTurn FS-Xtend Series!

Gamers can utilize a single, dual, or quad switch system with included extension cables for minimal cost and setup. The switches can be easily operated by foot, hand, elbow, or head and can be mounted to just about anything. Whether you’re on Xbox, PC, PlayStation, or Nintendo Switch, the AirTurn FS-Xtend Series will work for you!

AirTurn Helps Hawk Release

AirTurn Helps Hawk Release


Robby Resnick, from Soarin' Hawk Rehabilitation Center, videos himself releasing a red-tailed hawk back into the wild using the AirTurn DIGIT III.

Soarin' Hawk Raptor Rehab is a non-profit organization that has been serving northeast Indiana for over 20 years. They provide education and rehabilitation efforts in order to preserve the raptor population for the future. You can learn more at https://www.soarinhawk.org/. Volunteer falconer Robby Resnick shared this self-recorded video of his latest hawk release using the AirTurn DIGIT III.


"These releases are a little gorilla in effort. Often we show up on a property and only have a few minutes to set up, release and leave. I needed a remote I knew would be tough and reliable. I also wanted something that I could program extra functions as needed. I haven't had great experiences with the inexpensive remotes you get with the little tripods. I felt it was time for an upgrade and Digit has been just what I need. And small enough to still drop into my glove if I need two hands".

We asked Loren if he had any advice for new musicians.

When first starting out, try to take every gig, however big or small.  You will probably gain something from every experience, whether you realize it or not! 

We also asked what he liked best about using his AirTurn gear.

Definitely the portability and ease of use - and how it creates a very clean setup.
