I've been working on this for years!

I run with a Waldorf Blofeld as my main hardware synth right now but I seriously doubt I can squeeze this type of thing out of that synth.  I'm thinking of buying the Korg Wavestation VST after listening to your track.

Good video!  I own the M400 and zeroed it in with a Nikon scope and 5.56 NATO ammo.  The rifle came with a Sig Sauer scope that had issues with an out of focus reticle and no focus adjustment.  The Nikon BDC Carbine P-series scope comes with focus adjustment and I'm very pleased with it.  I've used 5 different brands of ammo with this rifle, including 20 rounds of Tula .223 Remington (ugh) with no malfunctions.  That being said, I'm very irritated with your political statements.  It's people like you that caused the current ammo shortage with your ill founded fear of the current administration and the resulting buying frenzy.  The NRA fanned the flames and exacerbated the current situation.  Your fear mongering is the reason that law abiding gun owners like me have such a hard time getting ammo for the range.  I don't appreciate it one bit and I will never join the NRA.

Really enjoyed your video!  You're so right about how important it is for the guitarist to understand his/her instrument.   The internet is such a fantastic resource that was not thought of yet during the first 25 years I spent playing. My ability to properly adjust and intone my guitars was very limited until I had access to the internet and modern digital tuners.  This information is now readily available free of charge.  This was not always the case.  I relied on brand name mystique and trial and error for years.  The quality and playability of low priced instruments is also light years ahead of what it was back in the 70's.  I guess what I'm saying is that the combination of modern manufacturing techniques and digital tuners along with the internet has changed everything.

I don't know why everybody is calling the Blofeld a virtual analog synth, it's strictly digital and doesn't pretend to be anything else.  I know because I have one.  You can get a huge palette of sounds out of it that you never could out of an old analog polysynth like the Prophet 6.  I love my old Prophet but it seems pretty crude and outdated compared to a Blofeld.  It's like comparing a horse and buggy to a 2015 Porsche lol!

That video is important to show new shooters how to prevent injuries lol!  But a basic understanding of auto pistol operation should dissuade anybody from doing that kind of thing anyway.  More important, especially with the 1911, is a good firm grip.  Dry firing is essential.  Every shooter needs to be able to drop the hammer without disturbing the sight picture.  The other first rule is to focus on the front sight and not the target.  Accurate shooting is impossible otherwise.  Locking the wrist and elbow are also good ideas.  And when shooting with one hand it's good to start with the thumb and little finger away from the pistol until you get the hang of it.  These fingers can cause shots to be thrown off target when shooting with one hand only.  Eventually with practice you can use your pinky and thumb to provide for a more stable firing grip.  I learned all this as a young Marine on the 2nd Marine Air Wing Pistol team.  I used these basic rules to place on the Marine Division national match course.  Real men don't need two hands to fire a pistol!
