Guitar amplifier

  1. 1. Guitar AmplifierThe right place for Guitar, Piano or other musical instruments amplifiersStudio rearrangementby HOSTMEI R on DECEMBER 10, 2011Studio rearrangementImage by NathanaelBNow I have a whole room for my music studio, just reorganised everything so I can haveeverything set-up permanently … means I‘ve been able to use it a lot more recently …particularly having the drumkit mics set up.PS: This was taken with a 10mm wide angle lens – the room is nowhere near as big as itlooks!!I‘m still learning audio production and putting bass, drums and piano together intocohesive sounding tracks … but if you want to see some of the stuff I‘ve recorded, have alook at the Music page on my blog. Track #44 is my current fav. It‘ll also make you realisewhy I have GAS for a Clavia Nord Electro 2Also I‘m selling a few bits and pieces.Question by Michael: What is a good camera for loud home music recording(piano guitar bass, all electric)?I will use this camera for putting my music onto youtube, so It needs to be easy to connectto my computer and edit. Audio quality is my biggest concern, I am a musician who playselectric guitar electric bass electric piano and acoustic guitar, the amplifier was a hugeproblem with my webcam and if i played acoustic guitar to loud, it sounded like crunch.size doesn‘t matter, it can be pretty big, or small. Also video quality isnt a concern fornow, mostly low frequencies and loud music need to come through clear, and it needs tobe easy to edit with cheap software that i have (mixpad, videopad, audiopad) and ifpossible i dont like recording onto a disk. Please help me, the quality of my youtubevideos are no longer acceptable.Best answer:Answer by Dave LaBudaYou will want to get a Camcorder like thiws Cannon – that has both
  2. 2. Mic and Headphone jacks so you can attach one or two (using a line splitter) good studioquality microphones to the camcorder and then monitor the input volume from theheadphones. If you get one of these – – then you can record in stereo placing two microphones strategically to pickupall the instruments and you will also be able to control the volume prior to recording it.The best idea of course, is to get Pro Tools and be able to record both the video and themusic and be able to edit and synchronize both and have mixing, mastering and effectscapability so you can produce a high quality picture and broadcast quality sound.Know better?

Sticking a microphone inside the pianois much more sensible.There are also electric pianos that use a variety of mechanisms other than strings tocreate sound.What do you think?

  5. 5. HDMI cableImage by Jon.JenningsOr you could spend in FutureShopQuestion by Alex: Is there a real difference between HDMI and componentcables?I have a Sony Grand Wega LCD rear projector HDTV. I have digital cable installed andam running component cables from the HD-DVR to my television. Would I notice a hugedifference if I switched from the component cables to a HDMI cable? I know that YPbPris for analog signals and YCbCr is for digital signals, but I honestly don‘t know whichcables I have.Best answer:Answer by Bob WYPbPr and YCbCr are just two different names for the same thing. Both are analogcomponent inputs.I don‘t have HDMI so I can‘t give you a definitive answer, but from what I‘ve seen frompeople‘s online comments, you will not see a big difference. And HDMI can beproblematic, because it‘s a bi-directional channel which needs an initial handshake to getthe digital protocol started. Not all HDMI-capable components are 100% compatible witheach other.I think your picture quality is limited by what you‘re getting from your cable company.It‘s somewhat possible you‘d get better PQ from an HD DVD or Blu-Ray high def DVDplayer over HDMI.

Guess who!: How can I use a headphonewith my Sherwood receiver?I just bought a Sherwood RD-5405 because it has a digital coaxial audio input needed formy projector. I then found out this receiver has no headphone output. I am planning toconnect my front projector with a digital coaxial cable to this receiver and use theheadphone to watch movies late at night. Thanks.Best answer:Answer by Carlton your doormanWell the bad news is you can‘t. Not without going to some elaborate and expensiveexternal device. You might be able to get a headphone amplifier with a HDMI input andhook it to the HDMI output on the Sherwood. However by the time you do that you willhave spend as much as if you bought a better receiver with a digital coaxial input ANDand headphone jack. My advice is to take the Sherwood back and get a better receiver asdescribed. Quite frankly Sherwood isn‘t very good stuff anyway.

I have an instructor very strict about grammar.I need toget my grade back up. Any errors anyone sees?—————————————————————————————————The technological tools offered by Axia College provide resourceful information to theaverage student. Students of Axia College are able to use these tools during any period ofthe day. These tools help the students to better understand the lessons in their courses.An example of two tools are the digital stories and audio appendixes. These tools allowstudents to feel connected to the classroom. Digital stories also help the visual learners,while the audio appendixes help the audio learners. Another tool Axia college provides
  15. 15. are tutorials. Tutorials help students to achieve excellence with their schooling byinteraction. I feel Axia College has created a fair and equal learning environment for allstudents by adding these assessments to their online college.The ability to download appendixes in audio format helps to improve my educationalexperience. As an auditory learner I am able to gain more from the audio format, then Iwould be able to by just reading the appendixes. Audio format could also be moreconvenient to other classmates who have items such as an iPod or a mp3 player. Thiswould allow those students to take the appendixes with them wherever they needed to go.I am thankful for the ability to listen to the audio appendixes provided by Axia College.Wow! Thank you all for all the great help! I appreciate it a lot!Just so people also know, this is meant to be in first person. The assignment said so.Best answer:Answer by RichardFirst paragraph, third sentence. ―to better understand‘ is passive. This is not necessarilyan error but is grammatically incorrect. I am not sure how strict your teacher is aboutthings like this.First paragraph, fourth sentence. It should read ―An example of two tools is…‖ not are.Second paragraph, second sentence.

Other elements include asolar hot water system; natural tree-resin bound paving material, instead of petroleum-based asphalt, on the visitor paths; recycled rubber; sustainably harvested ipe wood,which is naturally resistant to pests and rot; and dried bamboo, because it is rapidlyrenewable resource and does not deplete the environment when harvested. more AsiaTrail green elementsOutdoor ExhibitThe pandas‘ state-of-the-art Fujifilm Giant Panda Habitat is designed to mimic thepandas‘ natural habitat of rocky, lush terrain in China. Each element has a purpose—fromhelping the pandas stay cool in hot weather to giving them a place to hide when they needprivacy. There are rock and tree structures perfect for climbing; grottoes, pools, and

At the Plaza‘s DecisionStations, people can get a sense of the complexity of conservation choices by watchingvideos about wildlife-people dilemmas and deciding which actions to take. Other featuresat the Plaza include a topographic map of the mountains of central China and exhibitsabout alternative economic activities to reduce habitat destruction. Portraits of villagers,scientists, park rangers, and others, with the real tools of their conservation work, will behighlighted. Multimedia displays of photos, video, and audio will give visitors a sense ofplace, introducing them to the sights and sounds of China‘s wilds.As seen in by adrian R: can a virus make a fake desktop and directory anduser?i think i have liser.exe but i looked it up and its virut or something…….i keep killing thefake processes with taskmgr and i searched for recently modified files, i keep findingtemp files and one exe file called msa that plays an audio ad using an invisible internetexplorer……well yesterday i went all out and got rid of the infections several times andkept rebooting, at first it changed the registry so i cant use exe files but i went around itwith ―open with‖ then it got smart and didnt let me do that with any antivirus ,systemtools,and msi or exe installers of antivirus progs… on my last reboot i think it madea virtual machine,my desktop is green now and missing many icons and files but if i do asearch it says its still there under user……so how can it log me into fake user1,2,or 3 also ican no longer boot safe mode…..and the virut or win32blahblah removers from diff siteswont work,and the symantec one needs to be run in safe mode……also i did use manyantiviruses and reg cleaners, and on the last boot it asked to activate windowsand i did manage to get unlocker and current ports, and there is activity in port 80and i did manage to get unlocker and current ports, and there is activity in port 80Best answer:

Students will also have the opportunity tolearn to develop their own applications for the iPad. The devices were handed out in lateAugust when students move onto campus. This latest action is part of the university‘sMobility Initiative, a pilot program studying whether mobile technology enhances thestudent education experience."DCC is thrilled to be joining the university‘s innovative Mobility Initiative," said Dr.Matthew Kirschenbaum, Associate Professor of English and Director of Digital Culturesand Creativity. Kirschenbaum adds, "Many of DCC‘s students are digital natives who willcome to campus already having programmed their own applications, made their ownelectronic music and art, or designed their own interactive media. They will use theiriPads in the context of a curriculum that immerses them in the surprisingly long andcomplex history of thought behind today‘s new media devices. They will learn to developnew content for the platform, as well as use it to consume rich media integral to theireducation."
  23. 23. DCC‘s faculty includes Associate Professor of Computer Science and former director ofthe University of Maryland‘s Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory Ben Bederson,who has already developed applications for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.For nearly two years, the University of Maryland has been studying whetherincorporating mobile technology enhances the student educational experience.Sponsored by the Office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost,the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, and the Office of Information Technology, theMobility Initiative began in fall 2008. During its two years of existence, 280 freshmen inthe Banneker/Key Scholarship and Maryland Incentive Awards programs have beengiven either an iPhone or iPod touch to test inside and outside of class.In addition to the 75 DCC students who received an Apple iPad in the fall, approximately160 new freshmen in the Banneker/Key Scholarship and Maryland Incentive Awardsprograms were given either an iPhone or iPod touch devices – bringing the number ofstudent pilot participants to approximately 515.During the initiative‘s first year, more than 130 student participants used the mobiledevices to substitute for student response devices (also known as clickers) in class, toaccess the mobile versions of the university‘s portal and learning management system,and to participate in varied special activities, such as research scavenger hunts.For its second year, the pilot study expanded to include additional students, professors,and learning opportunities. New efforts were undertaken to support faculty in theirefforts to incorporate mobile learning into their courses, including offering a set of iPodtouch devices that can be loaned out to students in a course to support specific learningactivities.Additionally, an Office of Information Technology (OIT) and Center for TeachingExcellence (CTE) partnership gives participants in the CTE‘s Summer Institute forNew(er) Technologies the opportunity to explore integrating mobile learning activitiesinto their courses with support from OIT."Four fall courses and five spring courses have been part of these efforts," said Ellen YuBorkowski, Director of Academic Support in the Office of Information Technology. "Someof the mobile learning activities in these courses include recording assessments of highschool PE teachers, recording use of media as part of an international research study,
  24. 24. collecting and distributing interpretations of poetry, and using the devices‘ recording andplayback features in support of learning foreign languages. OIT and the CTE plan tocontinue this partnership into the Mobility Initiative‘s third year," Borkowski said.Additionally, for the spring 2010 semester, a new upper-level computer science offeringwas introduced to the university‘s curriculum. The new course, "CMSC498I: SelectedTopics in Computer Science: Programming the iPhone," covers topics such as iPhonedevelopment tools and fundamentals; user interface design; media considerations relatedto gaming, audio, and video; and usability and quality assessment. As part of the course,students are developing new mobile applications for the iPhone, specifically focusing onones that can be deployed and used across the university as part of Maryland‘s overallefforts to support mobile devices on campus.Digital Cultures and Creativity is sponsored by the College of Arts and Humanities, withco-sponsorship from the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities, theDepartment of Computer Science, and the College of Information Studies.
