oh dear it’s another project

Or more correctly, a few other projects. Or hilarious things I found out.

ONE! I need a bullhorn for the chorus of this song. YES A BULLHORN. Yes, I can fake it with plugins but searching around for advice online, the most common answer by far was Just Get A Bullhorn, They’re Cheap. And they are, you can get a decent one for $9.

TWO! I’mma gonna build a carbon button microphone – think antique telephone, like those things from the 1930s-1960s – and nobody can stop me. Turns out the parts are cheap and you don’t have to spend $250 for that one from Gold or whoever.

THREE! As I posted on Facebook over the weekend, turns out those old Square credit-card readers for your phone or tablet that let you take credit cards at shows? They’re purely analogue devices, which is why Square upgraded everyone for free last year. Meaning they output sound. Meaning I just recorded the audio of my Costco card and this is hilarious.

I need some quarter-inch magnetic tape, stat. XD
