Symphonic Saturday - Music Software

music1Now that I'm done with my online course, I have about a month where I can play around with learning LMMS. I expect it will be a while before I try to actively record anything, but I can finally go through the tutorials and hopefully learn the basics. Audio recording packages like this have similar interface designs to some video production software, so it might even help me be prepared for one of my upcoming courses on Basic Video Production.

I can also play my guitar and use Yousician and Rocksmith  to improve my skills with that instrument. I think music is going to be a big focus for me outside of my writing and sewing for the rest of the summer. Also, movies and video games.

Last night, I spent some time working on drum beats on an Android app called Walk Band. The app is limited in that I can only do small sections rather than a whole song, but it lets me play around and try things out, which has its uses. I don't know if I can import those into LMMS, but at least I'll know what I want to put into LMMS once I know how to use it. The trumpet add-in doesn't seem to function, which is disappointing to me, but as I have a real trumpet, I can maybe get my skill back up and record that in a normal way. Drums were the thing I was looking for most.

I'm enjoying playing around with it and am looking forward to seeing where it leads.

Guid cheerio the nou,

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

My DRAWING course is done. I was happy to be learning it, but I am looking forward to not having graded assignments. After this, I will continue another course I started, which is entirely self-paced. I'll continue sharing my drawings on my Instagram: @thewritebuttons   On the HOME front, I have made a lot of progress on my couch project. Really, it will be a loveseat. I finished the sewing portion of the seat section, the wood base, and have nearly finished the wood back for it. I've added wheels to it instead of legs because I want to be able to move it for easy cleaning. Today, I am working on the sewing of the back piece. I acquired all the hardware I needed for attaching everything. I will have a wood skirt to do, which will help everything stay in place. I also have the sofa cover for it, though I will still have to figure out the arms. I'm taking a break on the sewing until thimbles come later this week because I'm tired of pricking my fingers.  As far as MUSIC

Funky Friday - Losses, threats, and violence

[caption id="attachment_4712" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Image created using Bit Strips.[/caption] I completed the second draft of my story, so I'm writing a quick post of the most prominent stories from this week. Sad - An RCMP officer in Ottawa took his own life. Happy - Jared from the Subway commercials got beaten in prison . I have zero sympathy for sexual predators. Sometimes I think I should feel bad about this, but children are one of our most precious resources and adults like him disgust me. Excited - Anonymous has declared war on Donald Trump! Hopeful - I'm starting a new treatment soon to better manage my pain. Unsettled - Given that I just finished writing a story that features an unknown pathogen... This outbreak in Wisconsin is freaking me out just a tiny bit. Well, that's all I have the mental capacity for tonight. Ciao, R~
