My first post is always impressive, just in case my dream girl (long legs, blonde hair, colossal cleavage both north and south, desires me for immoral purposes 24-7-365-¼, owns a liquor store, hates my liver as much as I do, and finds nerdy harmonica playing wrinkly old dudes irresistable is lurking under a rock, which is near Iran, which is not right because I walked. After that, my IQ drops to "mineral" or below, and you'll hear nothing but and babble from me. You might say that my brain turns into crabapple, but I'm just a dumbass ******* (Cajun) and could never come up with anything nearly so clever.
Ever have one of those days when you open the fridge and think that's your pic on the milk? That happens to me every day.
I know electronics thoroughly, and build complex devices without a second thought. Much of my ham radio gear is Heathkit, which had a poor reputation because most of the builders did terrible work. The ones I've built are works of art, despite my name being Mike, and work like a charm.
However, anything I make from wood comes out as an ash tray or fire wood. (Remember wood and metal shops? We had a "hot dog cooker" project - a cheater cord, two nails in a foot olong 2x4. The class genius decided to make his more beautiful, and covered it with aluminum foil.) And so I raid the trash bin in the business park (??? - sectioned off long warehouses for businesses that only need a big garage) next to my friends shop. They frequently gut houses and toss drawers and counters.
I'm building a Leslie type rotating horn. I'm building only the top section, the rotating horn (it's a real Leslie horn assembly). I'll use an electronic Leslie emulator into the PA for low frequencies, and send anything 800 Hz+ via active crossover to a 20 watt amp and the horn. I want it light and luggable, for playing live. The rotating horn doesn't just create Doppler shift. It's directional, and sends the sound 360 degrees to bounce off walls, floors, ceilings, windows, etc., filling the room with sound. This only works for live music. This aspect of the effect doesn't record. I installed a Roland GK-3 hex pickup on my Fender Coronado for my Roland GR33 guitar synthesizer. The Coronado has a pair of Carvin Holdsworth dual coil pickups wired for series-parallel and in/out of phase, and sounds incredible as a guitar, but sometimes it's nice to have other sounds. The piano and organ patches sound great, but the organ always had something missing. Hammond organs aren't that special until you combine them with Leslie speakers. I have an A103. It's sorta like a B3 with built in speakers.
Leslie's are much more useful than just spicing up the Hammond. A well played harmonica thru a Leslie is to die for. So is guitar. Even vocals can be fed thru a Leslie. And so can drums, either sampled (like my Alesis SR-16) or punched into a real drummer who hits on the club owners wife and spills most of his pitcher of beer all over my gear before he gets an attitude adjustment right in his big smart mouth. Then we tie him to the ceiling fan and throw darts at his southerly region when we want him to sound off, which is an oxymoron. If we time it just right, he'll emit a blood curdling shriek that will scare off all the pier rats, make cats run into oncoming traffic for suicidal purposes, and repel stray harmonica players, who don't like the competition scaring cats. Ever notice cats and dogs howl when harmonica is played. It's called, "Accompaniment".
I've heard of different types of projector mounting methods (such as rear shelf mount), but I find no useful information except prices for various ceiling mounts, in which I have no interest at the moment due to gagging as these were repeatedly forced down my throat.. It's official. The Internet has been killed by greedy big business, replaced by bots mindlessly spewing prices and offering free shipping if we order 100 or more nuclear powered hot water heaters in the next ten seconds.
