For almost a decade now I have been powering my pedalboard with a trusty Dunlop DC Brick. However, as my pedalboard has grown and more power hungry pedals have come to the market, this power supply is no longer going to cut it.
It’s time to find a new, more powerful power supply with at least 11 outputs.
Since 2010 I’ve been using Pro Tools as my primary Digital Audio Workstation (or DAW for short), and as good as it has been to me I am finding myself becoming bored with it and wanting to switch to a different DAW.
This is the first in a multi-part journey to finding a new DAW. If you have any suggestions of DAWs I should try, please feel free to comment letting me know!
Also in this video I learnt that I pronounce the work ‘Headache’ very strangely.
It’s April on an even year so that can only mean one thing: New Ubuntu Long Term Support releases! As both a Musician and a YouTube content creator myself I find Ubuntu Studio to be an asset to all of my creative endeavours.
Ubuntu Studio is a distribution of GNU/Linux aimed at creatives. Specifically it is aimed at Musicians/Audio Engineers, Graphic Designers/Artists and Video Creators/Editors. It is also a great operating system for Photographers, Authors and Publishers.
It has been my GNU/Linux distribution of choice for a few years now. Let’s see what can be found in the most recent version; 20.04 LTS code-named ‘Focal Fossa’.
Sorry the video is out a little bit later than expected. I have been fighting with Kdenlive to get this video made as quickly as possible.
I was very lucky to have recently had one of my videos featured in an article on Make Use Of. The article is on GNU/Linux distributions aimed at musicians, artists and editors. My video was attached to the section on my distribution of choice; Ubuntu Studio.
Make Use Of is a popular technology website. The article in question can be found in the link below:
Ubuntu Studio is a GNU/Linux distribution aimed at the creative arts, specifically; Music production, Video production and Graphic Design. This is my review of the distribution after using it for a few months, from my perspective as a Musician.
I am using videos and images under fair use. Recently one of my favourite tech YouTubers; Linus Tech Tips released a video that just doesn’t live up to their usual standards. This video is ’10 Ways Mac OS is just BETTER’. Unlike a normal video by them it is full of inaccuracies, attempts to use subjective claims as objective points, and it outright gets some things wrong. As a music YouTuber I wouldn’t normally do a video response to something like this, but in this case I felt I had to.
Musescore is a brilliant Free and Open Source piece of notation software which is kept up to date pretty well by most operating systems/distributions. However, recent versions of Ubuntu have been shipping with outdated versions of Musescore 2 rather than using the more up to date Musescore 3. Lets fix that…
I did this on Ubuntu Studio 19.04, but I am pretty sure this should work just fine on 18.04LTS, 18.10 and any version to come after 19.04.
