Friday Night Noise 02



Raw output from the lab. Tonight it's the experimental RFeng voice driven by my 16 step up/down sequencer of doom.

This module is a blast to play with. It has plenty of character and is a great project for people who need a good voice to make their sequencer go.

Review: Pixco 43mm Wide Angle Conversion Lens for the Canon Vixia HV30

I'm trying to up my game a bit so I bought this wide angle lens for the camera I already have. The gain in coverage is minimal but the quality of the picture is nice for such a low price. Where this lens really shines is the macro setting. I'm able to zoom way into a miniature to see tiny details. Without the macro lens that same zoom setting would be very blurry.

I'm assisted today by Hakaar the Destroyer, a model from the Skorne faction by Privateer Press.

555 Contest results, Warmachine news, fingerboard funbox mini project.



News for May 2011.

The results are in for the 555 contest. I won second place in the Artistic category! see http://www.555contest.com for a full list of winners.

I'm building a mini synth voice that a friend is designing. See the progress inside.,

There's a new blog on the scene for Warmachine and Hordes players! http://thrallblacks.blogspot.com features the players of New Zealand.

I took fourth in a Warmachine tournament recently running Epic Morghoul. Good times, except for the epic beating I took in the third game.

My friend and I bought some Tech Deck fingerboards to learn some tricks on while on vacation. Instead of practicing I've been building nice sturdy ramps, a pole bank, and a big funbox. I'm also starting to do some custom painted decks.
