Sports

Sports is an activity where you move your body in a strange way. You drive around in circles or throw things as far as you can. Too stressful for me.

Sport ist eine Tätigkeit, wo man sich seltsam bewegt. Man fährt im Kreis oder wirft Dinge möglichst weit. Mir ist das jedenfalls anstrengend.

#Creative: Creatives react to the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil

Apple introduced the iPad Pro, and while it's easy to dismiss it as 'just a big iPad' – in the same way as some people shortsightedly described the original in 2010 as 'just a big iPod', as if that was a bad thing – it's possible that what it actually is is a big deal for artists, designers and other creatives. It's not just very powerful – some early benchmarking suggests its A9X CPU might actually be faster than the current 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro Intel processors – and it doesn't just have a generous 12.9-inch Retina screen, but for the first time with an iOS device, Apple is officially supporting a stylus, to turn the iPad Pro into a self-contained digital sketchbook. Indeed, it has made its own, the Apple Pencil.....

#Musicproduction: Shattered Glass Audio updates Code Red #Free to v1.0.5

Code Red Free is inspired by a classic, all tube, British console form the late 60s. The original console was known for its EQ, bold and punchy character, and the warmth it imparted. The Beatles recorded most of their material using this, and other versions of this console. Easily recognized overdriven sound of the Beatles' Revolution was created by chaining two preamps from this console.
Shattered Glass Audio has gone to considerable lengths to find accurate information and reproduce the original EQ curves and accurately model the preamp.

Crime stories on tv - Krimis am TV

I like crime stories on tv. Everything seems so simple and clear to me, but I think detective’s work is more sophisticated. Most I like when the investigation team has a blurred photo from a mobile phone and then zoom into the eye of a pictured person to get a sharp mirror image of the photographer. Yeah, that’s Hollywood!

Ich mag Krimis im Fernsehen. Alles sieht so einfach und klar aus, aber polizeiliche Arbeit ist wahrscheinlich anspruchsvoller. Am meisten mag ich, wenn das Team ein verwischtes Foto von einem Handy hat und dann hineinvergrößert in die Spiegelung des Auges und so den Fotografen oder eine Autonummer erkennt.
