Obedia's service is aimed at musicians and music producers who use computers to record music, but who don't want to invest significant time in classes or reading manuals to resolve technical issues. The free "audition" is also for people considering getting into computer-based recording, with Obedia experts available to make recommendations on hardware and software.

Obedia customizes training for each client with services that include:

Musician's Friend offers Obedia Training Technology "calling cards" that enable users to contact the service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for immediate help. The cards are offered in 30-, 65-, and 230-minute increments.

Musician's Friend also carries the music software programs supported by Obedia such as Cakewalk Sonar 7 Producer Edition, Apple Logic Studio, Steinberg Cubase 4, and Pro Tools M-Powered.

"Obedia was born out of the need for a more effective way to service complex technology and has evolved into an educational and training resource for those making and producing music with computer hardware and software," said co-founder Jayce Murphy. "On May 31, we would like to introduce customers to our services at no charge."
