International Band

I was thinking, wouldn't it be cool if someone could start a band where each member has never met before and lived in another part of of the world. For recording and coming up with songs they would sort of make a conference call or a webcam conference and meet up that way. They would then send each of they're recordings of their part that they played together to one person who combined them for the song. I don't know just one of my random thoughts. Interesting though.

Generic Drums for PS3 with Rock Band 3!!!

Hello my name is Charlie, I write from Peru and have some doubts about Drums for PS3 with Rock Band 3. Buy generic drums locally and is identical to the product of China (http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/iEMfIyBYj?af=130194941), turn on the PS3 with Rock Band 3, connect the wireless receiver and select PS / RB and not working. Change the selector to PS / GHWT and pedal not working. Then again turn on the PS3 with GuitarHero WorldTour, I connect the wireless receiver and select PS / GHWT and operating normally. My question ?: What is the way to operate the drums on Rock Band 3 for PS3 and then use the PRO mode? And if you need to open and weld or add a card, I could indicate how. I have not found something similar in the entire site and then not want to lose my investment. Thanks for the suggestions and I hope you can help me. Cheers, Charlie,

Question by patriotsman   |  last reply


KWR1 V.1 + "The More Bands, the Better" Myth

The KWR1 (K’NEX War Ready gun #1 Version #1) V.1 came out of my idea to build an entirely “mod-able” slingshot sniper weapon that you could rely upon in any outdoor K’NEX war (hence the name). You could make this gun longer; you could make this gun shorter. You could add a nonadjustable stock; you could make the stock longer, you can do practically anything to this gun (other than change the mechanism and the handle position).   Features: Good range: 60 ft. (1 band) – 100 ft. (5 bands, 45 degree angle) Can shoot: Oodammo (1 band: 60 ft.), Large K’NEX wheel (5 bands: 30 ft.), Small K’NEX wheel (5 bands: over 80 ft.), Lego bricks (5 bands: 50 ft.), NERF darts (5 bands: 50 ft.), and size #117 bands as a RBG (30 – 40 ft.) 10 point adjustable stock (see pictures 8 -11) with “Stock lock” (see pictures 13 - 15, 17) Totally customizable Safety (see pictures 15 - 16) Cheek rest (see picture 9) Not too piece consuming   Now, with all of that out of the way, I want to talk about ammo sizes and the “the more bands, the better” myth. So to do that, let’s look at the stats (shooting with three size #117 bands):   Red Connecter Ammunition: No rod attached: 62 ft. Green rod attached: 55 ft. 4 in. White rod attached (oodammo): 42 ft. Blue rod attached: 35 ft. 5 in. Yellow rod attached: 40 - 45 ft. Red rod attached: (got caught in the bands) Grey rod attached: (got caught in the bands)   Grey Connecter Ammunition: No rod attached: 64 ft. 9 in. Green rod attached: 59ft. 4 in. White rod attached: 50 ft. Blue rod attached: (got caught in bands) Yellow rod attached: 40 ft. Red rod attached: (got caught in bands) Grey rod attached: (got caught in bands) As you can see, the larger the round got, the lower the range you would receive. I think that this is a direct proof that bigger bullets are not necessarily good ammunition. For example, the ZKAR uses yellow rods? Might it get better range if it shot blue rods? Now, admittedly, the instances may be different with different guns, but I highly doubt it.   Conclusion: Stick with ammo sizes between blue rods and white rods (including both the blue rod and the white rod).     Now I want to talk a little about the “the more bands, the better” myth.   I took the KWR1 out to my backyard, grabbed some oodammo (growing in our garden, mind you), and commenced shooting from a prone position. Then I got this idea… what if I was to shoot with only 1 band, and not all 5? So I started to do that, leaving the bullets where the fell after having been shot. Then I decided to go back to shooting with 5 bands, to see how much better the range would be. So I fired a couple rounds… and got no better range than I did when I shot with only 1 band. I did this a couple more times, and found it to be true.   There is a myth (myth = a traditional story) pervading instructables that you will always get better range with more bands. Now, it is my personal opinion that if a gun can’t get 50 ft. with two bands, it’s no good, but that is irrelevant.   Conclusion: More bands does not necessarily mean better range.     Now, I am not stating these subjects as fact, for that would seem arrogant and presumptuous, but I do believe they are, to some extent, true.   -The Red Book of Westmarch

Top Homemade Instruments to Form Your Own Band

I just saw an awesome list of homemade instrument Instructables on a music blog called Terrible Love Songs - check it out! I've been in a couple of bands and have always tinkered with the idea of making my own instruments. Unfortunately they have never held together for long enough to take photos of (that's the bands and the instruments).Here are 6 instruments that don't look impossible to make and could start you off on your journey to discover the talent within.A Rule Organ"Hold the rule to the desk as tightly as possible to produce the best audio fidelity (read: twang) possible."Miniature Washtub Bass Made From Office Supplies"This is a great time killer and will probably annoy your co-workers (unless they've already made one themselves!)"Lap Steel Guitar out of a Pool Cue Case"string her up and plug her in! You'll need to play her using a guitar slide, or, to complete that bar room blues look, a shot glass."Cookie Tin Tambourine (Good name for a band)"Just find someone to join you in eating the cookies and emptying the bottles and it will be a very enjoyable evening."Horn From A Drinking Straw"The sounds produced range from a duck call to a flagulent."Cookie Tin Banjo"These banjos are fretless. I was surprised how easy they were to play."How To Write A Song"Even if the world doesn't get to hear it, you'll know that you did good work, and that's fulfilling enough to be well worth the attempt. Right?"How To Rap"like snoop dawg lol so to rap you need little diction and not a lot of pronunciation"Now you have no excuses. If you do manage to become famous (or not), please remember where you came from and post a video in the comments box.
