Old Door & Pacifier Clips for Sound Effects?

Old Door & Pacifier Leash Clips SFXSo, the other day I was sitting down with my girlfriend trying to come up with ideas for a new beat that my friend and I were working on. We wanted it to be something creative and something that most people weren’t going to expect.

In the past, I had used pacifier clips to help accentuate the sound of our overheads and hi hats. It worked great and since then we’ve been experimenting with live recordings sound effects like this. This time around we were strongly debating using other items around the house and thought that maybe an old door could provide some insight to spawn some fresh creativity.

This actually came about accidentally which is usually how the best ideas come about. We were chilling having a conversation and accidentally knocked on the door in a pattern that had somewhat of a groove. After hearing this idea we rushed to our recorder and laid it down. It wasn’t very long until we had a pattern running with some melodies that we were very happy with.

We ended up turning this concept into a full-fledged beat and sending it off to a few artists. It is definitely a more unconventional style of infer mental that we have ever produced to this day. As a result we have noticed a lot of interest and are really considering making more music with this kind of sound.

If you or anyone else is wondering about different techniques that you can use to create an interesting beat such as using a pacifier clip, hair pin, a magnet or anything that can be found around the house. Just try thinking outside the box, you’ll be surprised with what you come up with.

Xiaomi NineBot Hands Free Segway vs PunkeeDuck & IO Hawk

Xiaomi Nine Bot Mini HandlessThere is a company located in Asia that is introducing a new type of hands free Segway device to the public in the next few months. We still aren’t too clear as to whether or not this company is directly affiliated with Segway itself, although we do know that it looks much better than the original and look forward to seeing it in action first hand.

The Ninebot mini has a very interesting way of maneuvering. Rather than using your feet or using handlebars you are meant to use your knees and your calves in order to point you in the right direction. You then begin to propel forward or backward with in the direction that you move your legs. To many, this is an interesting way of traveling, but to some it’s not as advanced as a hoverboard Segway.

What they mean is when you’re writing a self balancing scooter, you are able to do all kinds of twists turns etc. Now the night but in mini is also capable of these twists and turns but they don’t seem as easily performed when you’re using A hoverboard scooter. We believe that there is going to be a demographic that likes how the Ninebot mini works while there is also going to be a demographic that likes how the hands free Segway works.

Hoverboard ScooterIn our opinion the hands-free hoverboard scooter is probably going to be much more popular. Mostly because it’s already plastered everywhere on the internet and is already in most high schools and universities. Just the overall look, feel and maneuvering capabilities that are available seem to outshine any other handless scooter type of device that we’ve seen so far.

It will be very interesting to see what happens over the course of the next few months when the Ninebot mini has finally been released. It is supposed to be available in Asia and Europe at initial launch, although we’re not too sure if it will be available in the United States as of yet.
