Apple vs FBI

What Apple vs the FBI means for the rest of us

Apple vs FBI | You may be aware of the ongoing dispute between Apple and the FBI by now. If not, here’s a quick rundown of what happened. A few months ago there was a terrible act of domestic terrorism that took place at a government funded non-profit establishment in San Bernadino. A number of people were killed and seriously injured but thankfully the Authorities were able to terminate the individuals that carried out the brutal attack. After the dust had settled the FBI started their investigation to gather more information on the attackers, but they ran into a bit of [...]

Novation Circuit Groovebox Review

    The Novation Circuit | Novation is a company that has been around since the early 90’s, they brought us the original Bass-Station synth and most recently the Launchpad line of Ableton controllers. Through their years of innovation, they were able to create something unique. You get a Synth, Drum-Machine, and Pad Controller all in a package that’s a little bit smaller than a Launchpad Pro. Today we will be reviewing the Circuit, Novation’s interpretation of the once iconic “Groovebox“ Features At first sight, the Circuit may look like a Launchpad that’s missing a few buttons, but the only thing that the Circuit really has in [...]

The Komplete Audio 6 makes my DAW Happy!

Komplete Audio 6   | Recently I decided that I wanted to start making my own background music. This was a side effect of an issue I ran into with a couple of my tutorial videos on YouTube. If you’re not familiar with creating content for the internet or in general, you may not understand the issue of royalties. I found this out the hard way when one of the videos I posted online was flagged by YouTube’s copyright algorithm, even though the background music I used in the video was considered “Royalty Free” under the creative commons license it was distributed [...]

Samsung’s Gear VR, $99 Virtual Reality

  Gear VR   I remember as a kid I had a pair of View-Master goggles that I got for some reason I can’t remember anymore. As I held it to my face and clicked the little lever that spun the 3D reel I marveled at the fact that I was able to look at Big Ben and the Eiffel tower from the comfort of my backyard, mind blown! Fast forward to the 21st Century and here we are, gadgets galore. You have smart watches, smart appliances, smart cars and, of course, Smart glasses. All these devices are all a part of a connected [...]

Behringer CMD PL-1, Oldie But Goodie?

  Behringer is a brand that has somewhat of a love/hate relationship with the pro audio community. On one hand you have people that swear by their products and on the other you have those that say that Behringer gear will never make it into their Gig Bags. I myself own a number of Behringer products which include a mixer, the Studio 4a, LC-1, and, of course, the CMD PL-1 being reviewed today. I personally use Behringer products because let’s be honest, they’re cheap and I’m a hobbyist so unless it’s going to put food on my table I’m not going outside [...]

Roxor Gimbal Camera Review

  Today I will be reviewing the Roxor Gimbal Camera. I have a few cameras in my collection ranging from full-size DSLR type cameras to small action style cameras, and one thing they all have in common is their lack of proper video stabilization. I have tried to remedy this on my own by using “Steadicam” style stabilization systems but these systems require extensive balancing each time you make any modification that affects the weight or dimensions of your setup, like switching lenses etc. There have been breakthroughs on this front for a while now which have been mainly spearheaded [...]

Amazon Echo Review

Its 2015, we have arrived. The future is here, well almost. Not too long ago I wrote a post on Amazons new Echo device. After much begging and pleading  I was able to get my hands on one by signing up for an invitation on the page Amazon has dedicated to the device. I am one of the lucky few who signed up early and was able to receive my device in less than two months. I read a review of another blogger who had the misfortune of placing his request last month but wont be getting his device [...]
