A First Look at Ubuntu Studio 22.04 LTS ‘Jammy Jellyfish’

Here is the latest version of the creative and multimedia focused GNU/Linux distribution: Ubuntu Studio, version 22.04 LTS ‘Jammy Jellyfish’.

Ubuntu Studio is a great distribution if you want to work on: Music/Audio Production, Video Editing/Production, Graphic Design, Photography, Writing, Illustration and Publishing, as well as other art forms.

This is an ‘LTS’ version, meaning it is a Long Term Support release, so it will receive updates for longer than a standard release.

Here are my initial thoughts on this version of the distribution, as well as a quick tour of the desktop and some of its programs.

New Gear Day – KMA Machines Silicium Fuzzly Bear

One of the last two pedals I need to finally complete my pedal board!

If you’ve been following the channel for a while, then you might remember that I bought an Eric Johnson Fuzz Face a few years ago; well I managed to cause it to have a lot of noise problems after unsuccessfully modding it, and needed a different, easier to manage Fuzz pedal for my pedal board. I initially planned on getting a Fuzz Face Mini, but couldn’t decide which one I preferred as every video I watched seemed to give me a different favourite. So, I decided that the only thing to do would be to go and try them out myself, and after months of trying to find anywhere near me that stocked them, I ended up trying different fuzzes out instead. It was a fight between a few different pedals, but overall this one impressed me the most!

Once my pedal board is complete, the next step will be to do proper reviews of all of my guitar pedals!

Gear used in this video: Fender Stratocaster, Fuzzly Bear, Marshall JVM210H into a Blackstar 4X12 Cabinet.

How to Install The Dark Mod on GNU/Linux

The Dark Mod is a great open source stealth game inspired by the Thief series. It doesn’t seem to get as much of a fanfare as other open source games do which makes it slightly underrated in my eyes. If you’ve only just stumbled across it then let me help you to install it on your Linux PC so you can discover this great game!

At the time of filming this video I was using Ubuntu Studio 21.04, but I can confirm that it works on both earlier and later version of Ubuntu and similar distributions.

New Gear Day – Epiphone Explorer

It’s New Gear Day! But not a normal one, as I don’t own this guitar, instead it’s being leant to me by my good friend Harrison, cheers mate!

It’s a mid 2000s korina Epiphone Explorer.

FIXING A 2010 MACBOOK AIR | Replacing the Battery | Changing the SSD | Installing GNU/Linux !

I’ve had this old 2010 Macbook Air laying around my house with a swollen battery for a long time now, and so I thought it was about time I fixed it and helped to breathe some life back into it.

In this video I replace the battery, swap out the original 60GB proprietary SSD for a 500GB M.2 mSATA SSD (with an adapter) and then go through installing a couple of GNU/Linux distributions.

Gig Vlog | Lost Era at The Carlisle 30/10/21 + Guitar & Bass Rig Rundowns!

I recently joined a covers band called Lost Era. We had a gig about a week or so ago, so I thought it would be good fun to vlog the experience. Here is what I was able to capture that day!

Disclaimer: As I elaborate on in the video, I filmed this on a phone I have never filmed with before, and have now learnt that the microphone isn’t as good as I was hoping. Therefore, I have had to do a lot of audio editing to this video.
