Backtrack Golf – Track your play. Follow your child.

Posted by on 20 Jun 2017 | Tagged as: iOS

There are a lot of musicians that play golf – I guess since they are usually free in the day, a lot of them play golf and are good!

I have a new app – it tracks where you go on the course and gives you yardages when you stop. When you are done, it is awesome to look back and see how you did. But that is not all….

For parents of junior golfers, you can follow your childĀ as they play the course on your phone! Live Round view will allow you to see them moving through the course as well as markers on where they stopped which also show yardages.

This app is awesome and will help out a lot of people!

Someone finally did it!

No O-rings needed for tube dampener

Posted by on 10 May 2017 | Tagged as: Amp/Tubes, Guitar Related

Over the years I have used O rings to dampen microphonic tubes. But I read online about using silicon “glue” to do the same. So I found this RTV Silicon Gasket maker and it will withstand temperatures to 650 degrees which should be fine! You can apply it in any thickness you want and it works great!

Very reasonably priced MIDI control surface

I have found this Korg Nano Kontrol 2 to be an excellent MIDI control surface.
Every button, knob and fader sends MIDI control messages. Great for controlling MainStage and other software!
