Hi,

Have you already seen the third part ?
If you click on "Your", you get a set of 3 images : some of Steve's guitars and some vΔ☉ plug-ins ...

Does that mean that YOU choose the guitar Steve plays for a specific song ?

I just saw it now. I think maybe as an extra feature they're doing a 360 degree virtual scan of the harmony hut as well? So we'll be able to virtually be in the harmony hut and check out all the guitars in our own time, not having to watch some video to see the guitars on the wall and such.

Kyle,

Maybe the user will be able to pick up a guitar and have Steve play for himself (= i.e. the user) only ...
Imagine that you could pick up Flo III or another Flo, then Evo, then Bo ...

I don't think I understand. You mean- you can tap on the guitars, and then see Steve using those on stage during the show, like being able to choose his instruments for him for each different song? That would require a ton of software to be done accurately I think, I don't think that the show was scanned, I think it was just video. Meaning-

To get say FLO to replace FLO III, they would have to have a 3d model of FLO to replace FLO III. Say for FTLOG, Steve used FLO III or xavia. They were recorded into the video, so any part of them that is seen in the video is already in the video because it was recorded there. To take either FLO or xavia out of the video, and replace it with say bo or Evo, they would have had to tag the whole guitar Steve was using with electronic markers so that 3d models of other guitars could be replaced into the spaces of the guitars he actually used in the video. Like CGI stuff. I don't think there's enough budget for that to happen. Plus the 3d models of the guitars would have to have moving components like bridges, knobs, the whammy bar, which would require editing every guitar to a time stamp to move when Vai does.

Yes, Kyle, you did understand correctly.

I was just using my fantasy with the 3rd clue and some elements of the video, without doing any proper or in-depth analysis ...
You know, imagination got running :oops:

I was kinda just writing it all out to see how it would even happen. I wonder if that picture of the cables is actually from inside the app, zooming in. That's incredible detail if it is! More detail than I could have hoped for. Hopefully the main guitars will be out, allowing is to see each and every crack and dust speck. Who needs an all about FLO then ;)

Well it's our. In downloading it now. If you just type in "Steve Vai" it'll come up, takes forever to load though. I think I must have been the first download becasue there's no reviews or ratings even put up yet. Is it just for iOS Apple devices, I wonder? It says available on App Store but I didn't see anything else, maybe it's on it's way for other devices?

There's only three songs available so far- RTW Weeping china doll and frank- are the others gonna be available and free also? Are the other songs already out and you have to buy them elsewhere?
