Home Video Motion Analysis Sotware-Now See Your Performance. Video Surgeon`s New Learning And Teaching Software-Video Motion Analysis, That Has Versatile Learning Applications. So video Motion Analysis Software Is Now Available For The Home. For Example, Slow Down Tempo To 25% Of Original Recordings, However You Can Also Increase To Turbo Tempo Too!
New Addition November 2017: WordPress From Zero For Very Little Cost! See For Yourself. Hit The Link At The Foot Of This Post!  
Boost Your Twitter impressions Too< See How. Using Paper.li Works! I thought it worth adding a link by the close to what is called an online paper. You can quickly create your own daily online paper at no cost on apparently an subject you want, without need to add copy. 

Above is the 1st of 25 video guides.  Previously, close to this level of motion analysis was mainly available to pro musicians and pro sports people. It is only fair you should have these opportunities as home users also. 

Some of today`s top stage guitarists used slow tempo video motion analysis. It was also a lot more expensive that what available here! This motion analysis software runs in Windows and Mac!   
In addition, you can offer this video motion learning software product to your pals and colleagues etc. To do so you`ll need the join Clickbank at zero cost (if not already) to obtain the hoplink for this product, or other Clickbank digital products. Then you can earn a commission on sales.

   The WordPress Blogging Daily

 The name of this video motion analysis software is Video Surgeon. It will capture, slow down to 25% of the original, speed up, loop, transpose, zoom and freeze video frame by frame.
There`s various sports and activities when Video Surgeon will help with learning. For example, it could also be useful for following and improving drumming when analyzing rhythm. I`m not a drummer.. and you might not be a budding Ginger Baker or Cosy Powell.
But if you check it out you will know how it will advantage you. Had I still been active in martial arts (5th Dan) I would have used video motion learning software to examine many of the katas outside the ones I practiced through 24 years. So Video Surgeon has many applications.
 In addition to reducing tempo down to 25%, it can be increased way over 100%. I don`t see how this will advantage anyone, but I can imagine a rather comical situation.. Excuse me a moment while I take my mind out of the gutter!

   The WordPress List Building Daily

Video Surgeon is thus marketed towards anyone using video media for teaching, coaching and of course learning. It works by allowing users to both capture, slow down or speed up, loop, transpose, zoom and freeze video frame by frame.
Video Surgeon includes product user guides, support and documentation. Getting into this myself, I`d suggest you go through the guide. This includes the quick start guide. In a while I hope to show you my guitar playing progress in video!

Insert: It occurred to me that you might also love Paper.li. It`s what`s known as an online paper that auto delivers copy daily, no copy to add.  No cost, but you can go Pro at just 9 dollars/mo.

You can set up an online paper in minutes, then every day it will return new content automatically.  Even though it is fast and easy to set up, it can take a few goes to get the content just about as you want. Just remember to test and not keep publishing. If you do over-publish you will end up with a lot of e clutter coming daily in your emails.  That would be confusing.
Paper.li claim the will return content on any subject you want, plus it doesn`t limit you to one paper. It can be linked in, e.g. Linkedin, FB and Twitter, blogs and websites of course. All that`s needed is a keyword, so as an example yours might be, “Home Recording Studio”. That would return the Headline as “Daily Home Recording Studio”. You can add a Subheading and  links

Vinyl Record Resurgence

vinyl record resurgence tag: Love Vinyl Recordings-Love Music. Record Deck Turntable Information: Increase In Vinyl Record Sales:  What Literally Goes Around, Come Around! But for best results the record (transcription) deck needs the be precisely set up. Even the stand surface can effect the sound reproduction. A few names below will help if doing music research.  Tag: vinyl record resurgence
Before I forget, a referrence to wiring speakers to amplifiers: If you go to Russ Andrews catalogue (UK) or Russ Andrews online site you`ll find you could pay hundreds for cables, gold included etc! QED  however do offer quality cables at a realistic price. Your Hi-Fi will ned to be of good quality in the first instance to appreciate the neunance resulting for a quick easy upgrade. You cannot make a silk purse from a sow` s ear..
Better cables are just a link in the chain..as it were. However, you could also pop over to a general hardware store and pick up a few metres of thick wire cable for a few dollars/pounds and give it a go! It might show a very noticable improement, e.g.  a far brighter/clearer sound reproduction.
Music Featured Daily…

 As a 70s rock music authority I`ve included vinyl records as part of my listening for decades. I`m into other media for listening as well of course right through to today Stereophonics, Twenty One Pilots etc.. Just to let you know I`m no dinosaur.
Covered are both turntables and hi fi amps in some detail below.. From Shaun A Leggott – >Twitter< The CD and vinyl record stacking guy, business suite and capture page marketer. Tag: vinyl recordings
 Match quality with quality to get the best performance from a hi-fi system. This means getting the best quality record deck set up  you can afford in the first instance, then consider the amplifier and speakers, i.e. rubbish in means rubbish out!   Tag: vinyl record resurgence

Quality record decks often have belt driven turntables, but some are direct drive. If looking for a second hand deck here two things to immediately check. If belt driven is the belt stretched? No problem if it can still be replaced. When the turntable turns is there any spindle related noise, i.e. rumble “drag”? Anything that creates a vibration will have a poor effect objectively.
Even the surface upon which a record deck stands can have a noticeable sonic effect! With surrounding noise from a disco deck these change don`t matter as you won`t hear any of the nuances. Not only the stand, but changing record turntable feet can make a noticeable difference to the final result!
My turntable is too heavy for vibration absorbing feet, so I fitted it with designed-for-purpose> spikes. This is a UK link but sure to be US links also. This means actual contact with the table (well my computer desk actually) is minimal. For lighter decks you might try out> rubber e.g. the composite types. So there`s a wide choice around. Some are adjustable, thus it makes it easier to set your deck level.
The turntable speed should remain at a steady pitch without what an irregular movement. If so it might be suffering from what`s called “wow and flutter” and perhaps best avoided. However, the spindle might just be it needs a smear of clean manual gearbox oil.
That`s assuming you can lift the turntable off to oil the spindle. Any sound, other than possible low level motor hum, that shouldn`t be there is a bad sign, so avoid! When it comes to isolating shields in certain areas of some turntable motors, there`s certain things you can do with layers of kitchen aluminum foil sheets. However, electricity near additional exposed metal is not a good mix. I will advise against that one. As the saying goes, “..included for information purposes”. 
Maybe the metal shield info is found online today somewhere, I don`t know. Years ago I applied it within a Connoisseur BD2 turntable where the bass depth was then improved. Again on a safety point, the electric plus will probably only need  3 amps, so replace any 13 amp ubiquitous fuses not supplied in manufacture.
If you are ok with a bit of DIY, here a way to improve the sound of a plastic type deck…
Assuming you can safely get into the deck from underneath without damaging the tonearm etc, plaster the area around the tone arm base with Blu Tack, plasticine or anything else that`s safe. Even lots of clean chewing gum. This will help cut vibration.
Unplug the thing first of course and don`t let the gum contact the mechanical parts. That is another modification outside product guarantee though! It`s not likely to be suggested in the manufacturer`s tips section.
With additional cost, another way to improve the sound is to upgrade the turntable mat. This can make a huge sonic improvement. For example there`s composite rubber mats and even heavier glass mats around.
I have these somewhere, but the one I always use is called> Ringmat by Ringmat Developments.

The perceived Ringmat value is 1/10 It looks and feels like thin card with rings of cork.. but it works well allowing deeper bass on my monster deck than was the case before! I think the perception has been a little improved, as I now look check along the site! Some of these companies in Hi-Fi fall into so called cottage industries.
If you come across a turntable with an SME “S” shaped arm then it`s a very old deck, i.e. if in original 1970s manufacture. Those arms are/were mostly fitted with Sure M75 or> Sure M95 M95 .  I see it`s still available with the mentioned Sure cartridges. These were considered the best match for the SME deck arms
The similar Sure cartridge with a more sturdy cantilever similar to M75 is the M95. As I recall the 95s were more suited to disco application.  I guess today that would include “scratch”. Pickering were/are a company supplying alternatives more sturdy pickups suited to disco use.
Latterly some owners fitted Supex moving coil cartridges in SME arms. It was also later that arms from Rega (excellent perceived value), Linn Sondek and Syrinx basically left the SME to RIP..
The turntable arm should run parallel with the records. most are adjustable. The Rega arm could/can be modified to remove a slightly distorted vocal frequency.. I don`t  know the cost, but the wiring change to silver suggests it`s not cheap.
Other considerations might include the wear on the pick up cartridge stylus. There`s magnifying glasses designed for showing wear. Obviously wear won`t be seen with just the eye. It`s likely most wear occurs on the inner side of styli. This is due to the pull on stylus towards the center spindles as turntables spin.
That motion spinning an auto vehicle around a roundabout has an opposite effect. Don`t ask why a stylus are different in this respect.. I`m not Prof. Brian Cox.. There`s two common types of styli, spherical and elliptical. The latter is best as they extract more fine detail from the record that spherical.
Some say elliptical styli cause record damage due to their shape, but I think that`s debatable. I think it is distorted logic. To set up properly with minimum of compromise, turntable decks are fitted with adjustable bias, i.e. for> anti skate
This is often in magnetic pull by the balance weight end of arms, but sometimes, even of costly deck arms, sometimes just include/included a simple pulley with chord. If it works don`t fix it! Before adjustment you`d need to set the weight of the stylus related directly to the vinyl records.
A simple slide weigh tool is available for this action from where you rest the stylus. Cartridge manufacturers give a ideal weight. It tends to be around 1.5 to 2 grams.
Badly set up, the stylus may well jump across record groves and increase wear of both records and styli. Obviously if you`ve used your vinyl as a lunch plate at some stage the same action will occur..
In a cupboard I have a Decca London cartridge arm combo. The recommended stylus to record weight is a weighty 3 grams on that! I called it my pick axe! I mention this as some readers might be doing a little research from mentions on this page. It`s likely that the record arms you`d see have a scale for setting the bias.
To do this more accurately you need a test vinyl record of LP size. All you need to do is, in effect play the test disc, particularly so over “smooth” areas, then adjust the bias so`s the stylus isn`t forced towards the spindle.
Alternatively, some test records use pink noise and white noise. With this sophistication you would listen and adjust the bias until left and right sounds are identical. As for the quality of cartridges, there`s a lot of difference between the better moving coil cartridges as opposed to cheaper moving magnet.
Moving magnet cartridges are generally more compatible being of higher signal output. Thus suiting many amplifiers. So most moving coil cartridges generally give a better sound than than moving magnets. A disadvantage with moving coil though is you won`t be able to replace the stylus, it has to be undertaken professionally.
If looking to pick up a quality used amplifier (e.g. Musical Fidelity or A&R Cambridge or ACRAM) do check it includes phono stage. A&R offered quite a few options with their amps and perhaps do so today.
However, more generally, it might seem ironic that this higher the quality the less you`d find related to amp sockets, e.g. no headphone socket in some cases (The shame!).. This is said to be because additions distort the signal path. I really don`t feel it makes much difference.
In addition it was also said that being more minimalist meant they could included higher quality components that would otherwise be the situation. Otherwise add a separate phono pre amp. This is the best way I go because doing so you are not limited this stage, being proportionate within the amp components.
I use a Lehmann Black Cube pre-amp with separate power unit with  IXOS Gamma 1002 speaker cables. However, picking-up cables cheaper cables will get you going.. In the UK that might be from> Richer Sound
I also have a weighty monster of a record deck that will literally play all vinyl record speeds! Just planning to use h/phones, you`ll also need amp matching hi fi speakers. Incidentally. many who manufactured within hi-fi might not be around now, but some thrive.
Countless manufacturers limiting themselves to hi-fi speakers alone went out of business.  A&R Cambridge started out with amps in an old windmill near Cambridge UK by former Cambridge students. However, look where their business is today!
Consider also the care of the vinyl records themselves! Obviously any dust collected on the records will have an adverse effect through annoying pops and crackles. If precious to you, you may well find a professional who will clean the records for you.
There are machines to do the job at home (Start a vinyl record cleaning business?!), but they are expensive. Just don`t leave records uncovered after use. Keep fingers away from the playing surface. Static is another problem.
If a real concern it might well be due to nylon surroundings, e.g. the carpet, or perhaps nylon non organic clothing and bedding. Static also builds in over dry atmospheres.
We used to have an anti static gun. I notice these are still available in Amazon. Perhaps invest in an anti static cloth as I`m sure they will still be around. I note that there`s anti static cloths used to cut static in laundry tumble dries, so perhaps these will do the job, but I really don`t know.
It might be too late but take care not to store 12 inch records flat. If  buying it will be worthwhile to check at eye level before purchasing. Some transcription decks are quite intolerant of these issues.
Due to a past shortage of plastics in the UK at least ( I think in the 70s) the thickness of vinyl records were greatly reduced. So prior to this period they were less prone to warp.
It followed that, due to rising cost of plastics, the price of records went up to almost 5 quid (pounds) in the UK by the 80s. Think of inflation; that was a lot of money then! Even plastic plant pots didn`t escape a price hike..
Incidentally, in addition to LP 33 1/3RPM records and 7 inch 45RPM singles there`s also some 7 inch discs that play at 33 1/3 also, e.g.  Argent>Hold your Head Up” (This is the long version) etc. These rarities are called Max Play as I recall. I have a few of them.

Recording Music Covers-Make Money In Music

Share
 Recording Music Covers At Home? Usually the promoter will encourage you to believe what he of she is offering will be of great benefit to you, either in productivity, income, or both! So recording music covers might benefit from using video motion analysis software?
It is not designed with recording music covers in mind, but you might see an advantage, how it might help recording music covers. If you are learning guitar, or a particularly active sport, then I`d say go for it! Best thing, I have included the 1st of 25 support videos below for you to decide.

and further.. I have included a link below, you really can  `t miss it..  

  In addition, a lot of home recording artists earn by recording music covers at home.  So I though here I`d suggest three ways to help get further known, where recording covers of not.
1/ Build your fan base through ead capture pages. This needn`t be expensive, e.g. from around 25 dollars a month to use a lead capture system, check around. The list extension would be more for the prolific music covers artists, e.g. in par with Alexander Stewart AS & beyond.
Listing the guys and gals who buy your music could result in you with adding or upgrading your recording studio, guitars/ drums etc? Into recording music covers, chances are you have a higher following to reach into than many outside entertainment! I will mention how you might therefore earn a little more money also. Will pop that not in this Post near the close.
Add to my twitter following (assuming  I am not locked out again sod them! I lost 500 following.). The more added, the more interest generated. However, I know I am older than you so beyond cool.

I can add yousome copy to my G+ blog, or another blogging platform. I`d just need enough copy to spin, e.g. 400 words in sentences, or send me a site link. Then you can have the keyword and link. I would add 100 words  or so at the foot. If I get enough interest we both gain as I get furhter known. My music contact email is musiccoverstoo @ gmail.com.
I just wish CDs had been around years earlier. That would have saved me dragging so many boxes of vinyl records around! Singer songwriters do face a lot of competition. Some stage performers though admit to finding it more difficult than they expected to get known.
If you are becoming better known as a solo or band e.g. in Youtube, another way might be for me to add you in my Google + blog with a link back (It only allows one link each time). If it gets you some positive publicity, fine, but if not then nothing is lost.
It won`t cost you anything. If you enter “Shaun A Leggott” in Google you may see, subject to date,  I`m the leading Leggott as it were (I have a family link to the origins of the John Leggott College here in the UK).
I guess it will be the same in the US. I got myself on a top page search for Twenty One Pilots, that was cheeky.. However, I guess Tyler and Josh are far too busy collecting the dollars to have noticed. That was Oct 10th 2016.
Anyway, just send me about 400 to 500 or so words about you or yourselves/link, history, plans, favorite beer (joke..) etc. Send it to my music covers too email assuming it wouldn`t  cause a new mom to drop the little precious one! Then I`d spin the copy to keep the mighty G happy

That`s more to the meaning of social following. I also sweep out the low principled people who un-follow once we follow them back..  So if socially up from, or at a level, with 5FDP level, just build it up. The more musicians we attract, the more chance of follow/following. However, it is just an interest so I really don`t mind. It`s not as if I earn from recording music covers.
The linked software is sold on commission through Clickbank. So if you are one of the outgoing or extrovert music cover artists it might be you have several thousand in your following. If so, you will have a niche audience to target. Create a Clickbank account at no cost. They will likely “push” the Clickbank University at you, but you do not have to take it!
