Vai 360° App
Steve Vai stars in Vai 360° App, Spot Seven's latest 360° concert experience app for the iPad and iPhone.
Looking for Android Guitar Apps?
The app lets you control multiple cameras that give you a virtual 360° look at three of Vai's performances, and gives you a guided tour of the his popular "Harmony Hut" studio.
The app will give you an up-close look at Vai and his band from many different angles as they perform three songs taken from their recent show at the Hammersmith Apollo in London. Three songs are available in the app: Racing the World, Weeping China Doll and Frank. This futuristic concert experience is made possible by having Vai's performance captured using six 360-degree spherical cameras.
You can watch the musicians as they play their instruments whichever way you like - by panning or zooming each of the 6 cameras. It essentially gives you the director seat, allowing you to see the performances as you want to.
Musicians can also use the zoom feature to get a clear view of the musicians as they play - turning the performance into a virtual "play through" which can be used for learning the songs and technique.
Controls for the cameras are intuitive, you can even use your device's built-in gyroscope to move around as you watch the performances. An "auto pilot" feature is also available should you want to watch the songs without interaction.
Gear heads like myself will be interested in the included 360° interactive Tour to Vai’s personal studio Harmony Hut. It utilizes the same technology to give you an interactive view of Vai's impressive collection of guitars, amps, racks, pedals and other gear. Steve himself serves as the tour-guide, providing the juicy details behind his studio and gear.
