Drolo Stamme[n] v4 meets Fairfield Hors d’Oeuvre?

I tried plugging a lot of different pedals into the Fairfield Hors d’Oeuvre? feedback looper. Of all, the one that gets the most added function is the Drolo Stamme[n] microlooper. I’d hate to say the Stamme[n] is missing a feedback knob since the pedal does just fine without it. But when you stick it in the effect loop of the Hors d’Oeuvre?, the Feed knob seems like it’s part of the Stamme[n], giving you so many ambient possibilities in the 4 delay or 4 reverb modes (when the left LED on).

How to tone your iPhone videos.

Just because it’s called the Photos app doesn’t mean you can’t use it to edit your iPhone videos. As a matter of fact, all the editing tools for photos are available for video as well. Beyond improving the look of your video, you can also do a few useful effects. One that’s really nice is toning. You can easily make your clip black and white or tone it vintage sepia or blue. This is great for giving your clip an old-movie look or adding a somber feel.

How to shoot time-lapse video with your iPhone

Time-lapse is a common technique filmmakers use to show a passage of time, by capturing movement that’s usually too slow for the eye to see. It’s a simple, emotive technique. All that was needed for the “Resurrection Day” seen here was an iPhone, the built-in Camera app, a tripod mount and a little patience. This article will give you the step-by-step on how to shoot time-lapse videos.

How to use the FPS iOS Shortcut.

A free utility for changing video speed on your iPhone.

A big emotive factor in video is the speed things move. The built-in camera app gives you the ability to record in slo-mo and time-lapse to change the speed when shooting. But there are no native tools for modifying normally shot videos or further modifying the slo-mo and time-lapse video when editing. For that I’ve created the FPS Shortcut.

Recipe: Saratoga chips

Homemade potato chips

There’s a legend around Saratoga Chips. It starts in 1853 with a snooty, snotty guest at Moon’s Lake Lodge in Saratoga Springs, New York and a complaint for the chef. Cornelius was amused. Not to be left out of a snooty, snotty trend the guest at the next table asked if he could have his potatoes done like Mr. Vanderbilt’s. Having pulled a fast one on a captain of industry and the other pretentious patrons, the next day George fried up a bunch, popped them in paper cones and—wanting the chips to seem unworthy of the wealthy—left them at the bar with a sign that said . And everyone did. In 1876, as the legend goes, Oscar Wilde gave them the name potato chips. (Hate to shoot down a perfectly good legend, but had been around in England since 1817.)
