KORG nanoPAD2 Stand (DIY)

KORG nanoPAD2 Stand (DIY)

If you’re looking for a stand for your KORG nanoPAD2 series, then you’re in my position. I’m struggling to find a stand (even after stumbling for 3rd party options as well), but the music store in my area (in Kuala Lumpur), they didn’t even know what I mean.

Some people on YouTube even using real drum stand for this device. If you read this and you still have no idea what we’re talking about here, please check this video:

Candid Photography (Etiquette)

Candid Photography (Etiquette)

One of “genre” in photography (if there’s such thing as a genre) that I really like is “Candid Street Environmental Portraiture” :-). Not the conceptual candid, but real candid. We often hear people ask us to join an event they called “hunting”, but actually it’s a conceptual.

FFmpeg Tips & Trick

FFmpeg Tips & Trick

FFmpeg is a complete, cross-platform solution to record, convert and stream audio and video. I personally use it for doing video conversion for my mobile phone and DVD player. I made some bash scripts that can help us to work with those tasks.

cut-video.sh

#!/bin/bash
ffmpeg -i "$1" -sameq -acodec copy -vcodec copy -ss "$2" -t "$3" "cut-$1"

How To Use:

cut-video.sh videofile startpos length

Example:

$ cut-video.sh video.mp4 00:00:00 00:05:00

The example told the script to cut video.mp4 start from the beginning for five minutes in length. The result will be saved on the same directory with “cut-“ prefix. (more…)
