Wax 2.0 for Windows PC Review

Wow! I’m pleasantly suprised by Wax 2.0 Video Editing software. Recently, I was searching around for freeware and open source video editing software programs, and came across this list of the 18 Best Video Editing Software For Free Download (Windows) in Google Search. I clicked on it because it had a few Stumblupon recommendation stars next to it -of course. After downloading the entire list of programs to a folder, I decided to start tinkering around with the freeware, video editing program Wax 2.0. This is a totally awesome and totally amazing program! If this program is any indication, I can’t wait to check out the rest of the list!

RSS Means Really Simple Sindication

Hey all, today I thought we would cover RSS Feeds and RSS Readers. First of, what is RSS you ask? RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. RSS is a way for bloggers and website operators to get their content out, and provides users with an easy way to read the newest blog posts from their favorite websites. When I first discovered RSS (about thirty years after everyone else), I thought, “Wow! Why wasn’t I reading RSS before?” I think the common phrase used to address the non-RSS initiated is “Come in from the cold!”.

Recording Techniques

I’m psyched to have a studio to record music in finally! What a change from “apartment recording”, I can actually bring everything to full volume! Sweet! Practicing late at night has it’s bonuses too. As Full-Blooded Mutt‘s recording session flies along, I would like to share some of the new recording techniques I’ve mastered. Now keep in my mind our studio set-up is a might lo-fi compared to high-end studios. Short of upgrading our sound card/interface a few hundred dollars, we are recording with two channels on to twenty-four or more tracks. Keep in mind, The Beatles recorded the Sgt. Peppers album on a four track. They just never said how many four tracks they used. In recording, I’ve always preferred to be at the limits of my audio gear, rather than have a ton of gear I barely know how to use!
