Tech Daily Dose http://www.techdailydose.com When media, technology and cultures collide Tue, 28 Mar 2017 12:44:07 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.4.10 Head Over Heels Baby http://www.techdailydose.com/head-over-heels-baby/ Tue, 28 Mar 2017 12:44:07 +0000 http://www.techdailydose.com/?p=1308 I notice the headsets that are perennially at a rapper’s or DJ’s neck and had been considering the thought that is one of their eccentricity with regards to Fashion. Little did I know that it is much fun and profound to listen to music without outside and background noise interrupting the flow of melody, tune and lyrics? One cheap pioneer headphones at musicians friend could very well provide for the requirement. That is letting you listen to music clearly without background noise.

Now that I know why they always carry that little ear covering contraption I could fairly say Godspeed and more music to enliven the day. I noticed too that not only the ones that hints of their musical skills and genius wore the headsets but also the hurrying yuppies, walking hurriedly while discoursing with the mouthpieces of their phone pinned on the front of their shirts. Diverse personalities from different walks of life united by a common practice and that is listening to life’s music with a headset and discoursing life’s events through it too. nord stage 2 available at Musicians Friend

The Unexpected Bass Performance http://www.techdailydose.com/the-unexpected-bass-performance/ Mon, 30 Jan 2017 11:23:35 +0000 http://www.techdailydose.com/?p=1296 Last night I attended a birthday party gig of my best friend. He chose to have the kind of party since he’s really obsessed with music and is a member of a band. I used to be in a band too, I play bass guitar, but I haven’t played for many years because I had to focus on my studied since I was on my last years of high school back then and I wanted to be passed on the university of my dream laney.

But after almost 6 years, I was forced to play again! Don’t blame me wrong, I love music, and if possible I want to perform again, but the thing is that I am not sure if I can still play as I used to. Good thing my best friend has fender jaguar bass that’s really smooth to use and it helped me to easily perform well.

Pimp your Music to the Next Level http://www.techdailydose.com/pimp-your-music-to-the-next-level/ Fri, 23 Dec 2016 16:09:44 +0000 http://www.techdailydose.com/?p=1287 I have undergone my training in one of the radio stations popular to the city. It was one unforgettable experience for me because I got the chance to apply what I have learned in my electronics degree. Besides that, I got the chance to be a DJ for several times. It was exceptional and the feeling in the podium is incomparable.

The work of a DJ is pretty hard. They have to be familiar with all the buttons and processes they need to perform to get the job done and entertain listeners. They have mixers, sweepers, monitors and other more. But there was this software I was not familiar with where you can create your own music and add up different audio effects. Our trainer mentioned they have downloaded v11 reviewed. I have tried it and you can make music much more enjoyable to listen.

My Brother Loves his Guitars http://www.techdailydose.com/my-brother-loves-his-guitars/ Tue, 20 Sep 2016 13:50:04 +0000 http://www.techdailydose.com/?p=1262 My brother’s really serious about being the manager of this up and coming band. As I’ve said, they recently finished first at a local battle of the bands for which he rewarded his boys with a new set- up. It’s therefore no surprise that he also makes sure that his own instruments and equipment are well taken care of. He has guitar music instrument mounted on his bedroom wall in order to keep his much- loved guitars from finding themselves on the floor and in harm’s way.

And then there’s the garage which he’s rented from our dad and where he keeps the rest of his toys. I thought I’d only see garages converted for band use in movies, but I must say this about my brother. Once he has his eyes on a goal, he’s really going to do all that he can to make it happen. And making his mark in the music scene is no different.

Holding The Harmonica In Place http://www.techdailydose.com/holding-the-harmonica-in-place/ Tue, 20 Sep 2016 13:48:42 +0000 http://www.techdailydose.com/?p=1260 Kenneth never had a sibling. His parents married late, so they only had one offspring. Kenneth always loved the harmonica and guitar, but since he is a single child with no brother or sister to jam with, he had to play both himself. To do this he relies on a harmonica holder which he attaches to his guitar.

Recently, he purchased a peavey 6505 plus to replace his old one. It kept his instrument in place, allowing him to play smoothly for himself. It was one of his favorite buys because he saved up for it for a long time with his allowance. Nevertheless, it was all worth it because though he has no siblings, he can happily play the instruments alone because of the holder.

My Dream of Being A DJ http://www.techdailydose.com/my-dream-of-being-a-dj/ Tue, 13 Sep 2016 10:58:10 +0000 http://www.techdailydose.com/?p=1256 Recording music using my home karaoke system set might not be wonderful or a really big thing but it is a great source of pleasure for me. I am so inspired of other DJs at the local clubs, especially that I like going to clubs with my friends on weekend. I like their music and it makes me feel alive.

But personally, I am not confident enough to let other people hear the music I made, maybe when I think I am good enough! I always daydream about performing as a DJ too one day. I think it will be cool. I mean you will be the life of every party and the people’s energy will be depending on you.

Working with a DJ Mixer http://www.techdailydose.com/working-with-a-dj-mixer/ Tue, 28 Jun 2016 21:27:38 +0000 http://www.techdailydose.com/?p=1236 Every night I work in a disco bar as a disc jockey. I must admit that I have contributed to why hundreds of people flock to the bar. It could have been my style of music; or it could have been the price which everyone can afford.

My secret to the success is mixing hot music through my adj inno spot led. It has all the controls to switch from slow to fast and back to slow music again. Customers just love to hear each beat. It’s like merry making and helping them forget the realities of the world.

The owner of the bar is quite pleased with my performance. He says he can’t do without me. I was so much flattered with the news. It simply means there’s going to be a raise in my salary. LOL

It Takes Two to Walk Out http://www.techdailydose.com/it-takes-two-to-walk-out/ Fri, 11 Dec 2015 15:14:27 +0000 http://www.techdailydose.com/?p=1201 My brother and I had different past time when we were young. I loved reading pocketbooks such as Mills and Boon. I was reading under the tree in my hammock until I drift off to sleep for my afternoon nap.

My brother Kent loved to play with his electric guitar and experiment on his sound is everything. He loved its deep sound. I hated it when he was crunching his guitar and amp. Can you imagine how annoyed I was when reading while listening to his music? You bet! I could hardly understand what I was reading. I asked my mother to give him an ample room for his hobby. My father sent me in the sanctity of my room instead. He said he enjoys my brother’s amps’ various sounds.

From Pedals To Everyday Use http://www.techdailydose.com/from-pedals-to-everyday-use/ Thu, 17 Sep 2015 20:58:16 +0000 http://www.techdailydose.com/?p=1197 The vintage danelectro was advertised to be used for pedals, so I bought it for that purpose. It hold its charge better than any battery I had, surpassing other popular ones in the market in my opinion. For that reason, I had to buy another set. But I did not use my extra for pedals. I had it around the house for emergency purposes.

It came in handy when there was a storm one time and I couldn’t rely on my generator when the power was cut off because we ran out of gas. The battery worked marvelously with my other gadgets that I had to thank my lucky stars that I bought it in the first place. It was truly a good buy.

Nothing Beats The Echo http://www.techdailydose.com/nothing-beats-the-echo/ Thu, 16 Jul 2015 04:53:39 +0000 http://www.techdailydose.com/?p=1182 I used to rely on a digital modeler. It was cheap, easy to use, and does the job, though not as adept as I wanted it to. But as any person who want to create good sounds, I craved for something more. The digital modeler just did not fit the bill anymore, music wise. So I asked my friends for some input and arrived at the tubetape Echo.

The Echo was one marvelous instrument that someone like me would be dying to have. Though it is pricier than what I was accustomed to, it did not stop me from obtaining this equipment. Everyone was right when they said to dump the digital modeler. It was really nothing compared to the tube.
