M.U.L.E. Returns Preview on YouTube featuring my music at the beginning of the demo!
For those who are old M.U.L.E. game fans, there is a new version out at the Apple Store!
Thanks to Comma 8 Studios for doing up this project. M.U.L.E. has remained one of my favourite video games over the years. Cool part from my standpoint is my music remix is in the game! In the first version of the game, my Auralplane band name appears. In version 1.2 or later, you’ll see Rob Adlers listed.
One check in my musical bucket list has been achieved!
Very proud to be part of this project. Looking forward to doing more game projects in the future should they present themselves.
Well, I’ve gone and done it. Joined a new music tribute act! Flannwood Mac, a Fleetwood Mac tribute band, is finally in gear and in motion! We hosted our inaugural event at Bobby O’Briens Bar and Grill in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada on August 30th, 2013. Here are some videos on Youtube from an audience member Dave Sloane.
More to come later on this front, as we had the show video recorded and will be posting those videos up later.
Band members: Bryan Wright, Theresa Noon, Chris Flannigan, Chris Latta, Laura Friesen, Ryan Allen and yours truly!
Time lapse photography capture of the ice/freezing rain storm that blew through Kitchener, Ontario, Canada April 11-12th, 2013. Video and music by Rob Adlers. This video was as much an experiment as it was a spontaneous thing to do. I wind up watching the little things that happen in the view as time moves forward. Oddly you don’t see the rain coming down, and it did pretty hard at some points. It’s a cheap camera, it is what it is…
I still find it cool that 30 year old Computer equipment actually had S-Video output capability, but without the S-Video connector.
Commodore 64′s have Chroma/Luma and Audio outputs from the video port. They’re in RCA connector format, so I had to come up with an adapter. I looked up on the internet about the cables being sold, etc and found out that you needed a 300 ohm resistor inline to get clarity in the signal, because the Commodore 64′s output is a bit ‘hot’.
Well, I got a resistor and tried it and found I wasn’t getting any color. Tried a smaller ohm resistor and it began to show promise. I decided that a variable resistor would be a better solution in case each machine I connected to had different output levels. I spent some time and built my adapter case at Kwartzlab.
Voila! Observe the photo graphs!
