Use one battery and paper clip to power remote

Posted by: pctutorials  :  Category: YouTube

Remote control missing a battery? If you’ve got a paper clip around, you’re in luck. By modifying the circuit, you can use one battery to operate a remote. While the range of the remote may not be as good, it’s better than nothing right?

Guitar Hero World Tour Drums On PC

Posted by: pctutorials  :  Category: How To, YouTube

Hey Guys, It’s been a while since I posted on here, which I am sorry for. Long story short, my main PC hard disk gave way though thankfully I have managed to restore most of the lost data. Regular posting will once again commence shortly.

I mentioned a while ago that I would create a how to video on using your Guitar Hero World Tour Drum kit on your PC. Thanks to Magnus’ PS360MIDI Drummer software, the ability to use the GH:WT drum kit on PC became possible. To think that you could turn a gaming controller into a high quality midi controller is amazing. Something like a Yamaha DTXpress costs $800 AU + .

I realize you can’t compare the GT:WT drum kit to fully decked electronic drum kit, but for less than $150 , the Guitar Hero World Tour Drum Kit does a pretty awesome job. Watch the videos below on how to setup your Guitar Hero World Tour Drum Kit on PC.

What you need:
•Guitar Hero: World Tour Drum Kit (Must be either Xbox 360 or PS3 version)
•Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver For Windows (Xbox 360 version only)
PS360MIDI Drummer
LoopBe1
ASIO4ALL
FL Studio
Addictive Drums

If you have a rock band 2 drum kit and can provide some technical data for Magnus so that he can add rock band 2 support , you can contact Magnus at magnus.ellinge[at]gmail.com

 

If you get a bit more serious into drum playing and/or recording, consider purchasing the full version of Addictive Drums which will give you access to the full, multiple drum kits, which by the way, sound excellent. If you don’t have a digital audio workstation, FL studio is something worth buying; I use it and can not fault it.

Have fun drum playing and if you get any videos up of your drum playing on your GT:WT drum kit, post them in the comment section!

Photo Synth – Cool Social Imaging Technology

Posted by: pctutorials  :  Category: Web Design, YouTube

After having a browse through Youtube, I came across a really interesting video. Blaise Aguera y Arcas is an architect at Microsoft Live Labs and has co-created a software called Photo Synth. It’s a little bit tricky to explain in text, but it’s a monumental piece of software capable of assembling static photos into a synergy of zoomable, navigatable spaces. What that means is that the software collects photos from all around the world from end-users that share their photos online and create a 3D navigatable area based on the photos provided on your computer.

Still not making sense? Watch the video, it is truly a masterpiece :)

Want to try it out? The software is ready to go at Photosynth.net. The speed at which it renders the pictures is amazing.

Download Youtube Videos in One Click

Posted by: pctutorials  :  Category: Tips, YouTube

I get annoyed sometimes either when an online service doesn’t work, or the free progam used has adware bundled. Alex Chitu has come up with an awesome idea to allow you to download YouTube videos in high quality quite easily. It works in Firefox, Opera.

  1. If you haven’t already got it installed, FireFox users need the Greasemonkey extension installed. Opera has built-in support for user scripts.
  2. Download this Greasemonkey script and enable it.

When you open up a Youtube video page, you should see a download like like this:

Remember, when you save the file, rename it to an .MP4 file. This little tip should save you a lot of frustration. ;)
