    From 1984. Trying out a Canon VC30 camera and VR40 VHS Hi-Fi deck.

    (Yes, that is the Prince and the Revolution poster from Purple Rain.)

    For anyone interested in 1980's recording and audio equipment -- Visible in the video are the Sequential Circuits Six Trak and Drumtrax with a drum/bass loop, Yamaha DX7, and a Moog MemoryMoog Plus, tuned at 3:14 using Autotune, which 9 times out of 10 tuned all 18 oscillators in 20 seconds or so ...

    In the background are the Tascam 38 and 32, and a Commodore 64 with MIDI interface and RGB monitor. I don't remember which 16x8x2 mixer that was but the monitors were EV Sentry 100's powered by a Yamaha 2050 (2 x 45 watt @ 8 Ohms).

    Guitar is a Westbury Custom S with Dimarzio Dual Sound pickups, into a Yamaha PG-1 pre-amp with effects loop (dbx160x, Furman RV1, Roland SDE1000) to a Yamaha 2050 in bridged mono (95 watts) to a Music Man 210RH 2 x 10" folded horn cabinet, with Electro-Voice EV-M speakers wired for 4 Ohms.

    Audio is from a Canon stereo condenser mic on the camera picking up room sound. (keyboard mixer output fed through a Roland RE301 Space Echo, QSC amp, and Gollehon speakers.)

    Recorded some time in the fall of 1984 on VHS tape. Show less

    Mostly, early-80's guitar wankery and some other stuff from 1980 thru 1986, originally recorded on cassette, reel-to-reel, or VHS tape, with general info about period audio gear. After 25 years away from playing guitar I started back several months ago, and we are recording jams with the Zoom H5, so some of those are on the playlist, too.

    Occasionally, I record things and edit them into videos for YouTube ... There doesn't seem to be any pattern to it.
