I play guitar. I need a drum/loop machine, and a keyboard. Let’s face it: We all should have become musicians and ran away with a Spanish dance troupe. It just didn’t work out that way.
This is what remains, the grind. I want to produce all the music for my videos. In the event that YouTube or other host sites strip out the audio, I can make amends. If I need “intro music” or whatever. Playing every day really helps. I blew out my cheap combo amp after five years of shredding in my dining room.
I find that music and math sort of inhabit the same place in my brain. So, I bought an amp I can enjoy. It brings a better sound. The tone feels like being immersed in hot liquid wax. I plugged in and fell in love all over again with a 50W amp. The manual that arrived with it can be used for more advanced models, so I get a brief on professional upgrades. If I had a keyboard, I would have gotten something that can take efx loops, stereo expansion, MIDI.
Putting together some layered presets briefly
Exploring memory functions briefly
Exploring the online effects library briefly
Understanding and demonstrating use of all console buttons and knobs
Record the guitar from the amp itself onto a laptop
Shredding as needed
Basically, I get another five years of musical exploration.

I like SLAM. It was red hot stuff about seven years ago. I have not read this article yet. Telemetry and control in a single gear. What’s not to love? The problem, again, with pretrained AI is that the drone cannot necessarily learn much new stuff. It just arrives “aware of” things like trees, vehicles, and people and such. Drones do not “find” power lines affixed to poles of a regular size and distribution rate along roadways, yet they exist. where else do you find them? it would be cool to be able to detect the lines using infrared sensors.
My son learned to ride a bike. We worked on a plan. I got a bike, a helmet, and decided on a location to spin up the skills. The first day, I never let go. The second day, maybe I let go, maybe I did not. Sometimes I was just keeping a hand on his back; I did no guiding whatsoever. Sometimes, though, I guided. I had to reset the gears a few times. The gears will take a couple of weeks to understand. This is his first bike, and I got him riding in two days. By the third days, he was trying to bomb uphills and having some spectacular crashes in the grass alongside a cross-country track. Here is the footage of his first, and then second day riding a bike.
