Tim originally came to Gizmag as a developer, much to the dismay of anyone who had to maintain, build on, or rewrite his code. After wearing every other hat that didn't have a head for it, he became CEO in 2010. Outside Gizmag, he trains Muay Thai and plays too much Destiny.
The democratization of music is something Gizmag has been watching for some time. Just this year, we've seen software that teaches you to play guitar

This time around, there'll be no limit on the number of downloads or the number of serial numbers given out - until the end of July, that is.
