“The computer was born to solve problems that did not exist before.” -Bill Gates
Starting with the invention of the first modern computer in 1936 through innovations such as the microchip in 1958 and the affordable home computer in 1984, we humans have always been intrigued and sometimes a bit intimidated by the computer. Andy Yozviak pays homage to this incredible piece of modern technology with his show “Computer vs. Man.”
Andy hits the ground running with the exhilarating “Powering Up.” The intricate runs and full chords urge you to plug in your computer, boot it up and off you go! The opener seamlessly segues into “Working Together.” The musical lines slow down and invite you to pause and reflect on what you have accomplished. “Rise of the Machines” is hard driving and fast paced with loads of runs and full chords. Which side will come out on top? Man or Machine?
Who will come out on top in the saga of “Computer vs. Man?”

For more information about Run Audio Fx, visit www.runaudiofx.com and test drive the app for free!! This is a completely customizable and powerful app that can work with any sound effect/file (yes, you can upload your own files into the program)! You can use it with your existing sound system (including self-powered speakers...by wired or bluetooth connections), by touch, with midi keyboard (full-control without touching the iOs device), and hundreds of sound effects are included with the purchase of a once-a-year subscription!
After you set up your show/soundboard, you save the entire RAFX Soundboard or "show" in a cloud service, or e-mail the file to yourself or collaborators on the project that havre RAFX. This way, if you have to reset the iOs device or get a new one, you can easily upload the file again and be up and running in a few seconds. Try doing that with a computer, its software, and additional hardware components...you've all witnessed that pre-show nightmare at least one time in your careers!
Save thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours working on additional equipment to deliver high-quality, non-compressed sound files in any performance situation.
