Incubus - Wish You Were Here

Thingamagig = FOSS guitar karaoke (with lights)
No pedals. No amps. No knobs. No presets. No cost. Any guitar.


Lots of new stuff here.

  1. Got a Rotosphere to replace the disco ball. It doesn’t look as nice, but it’s a single self-contained unit vs the ball, multiple lights pointing at it, tripods and DMX cable runs. Much easier.
  2. No drum lights this time. I forgot to plug the bulbs into the dimmer.
  3. There is a frontman light. It’s the par in the rack pointed at me. Note it’s mostly white and occasionally dims.
  4. Cell phone audio. Sorry. It’s easier and considering how bad the MIDI toms sound, it’s probably for the best.
  5. This session has automated harmonies through a Voicelive, but I need to find a decent singer first.
  6. This configuration is essentially how Thingamagig is intended to be used at home: Press play on the session and then read the chords and lyrics as you go. Makes it easier on me, anyway, bc I suck at remembering chords, structure and especially lyrics. I might just make all my videos this way.
