A New Episode of 10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast is up!

by Dynamic_Computing Sat Sep 08, 2018 8:37 pm

This episode is broken into two parts - 10 minutes was just not enough to cover the review of the Individual Computers Rapid Road USB Adapter. I cover the pros and cons of this wonderful unit and try to clear up some misconceptions about it. Please take a look at both Part one and Part two of this video.

Don't forget all my previous videos are available on http://www.10marc.com , and those videos can be downloaded and viewed right on your Amiga.

10MARC Episode 4 - Part One

10MARC Episode 4 - Part Two

Next week I think I am going to cover the new "Worthy" game - I am having a blast playing that!

Episode 5 is now finished. In the video I am discussing Amiga Display modes (15 Khz modes to be exact) and a few clever ways to use them today with monitors that are still available.

Episode 5 is available at https://youtu.be/0-htHsT-ZcM

I will also have the MPEG1 version of Episode 4 (both parts) and Episode 5 uploaded to Aminet soon. Remember, they are also available on my website http://www.10marc.com

Thanks!

I have a nice mic. I also have it several feet away because the fans on my A4000 and my SCSI drive bays are annoyingly loud! I will run some tests and see what I can do about getting the hiss reduced. Thanks for the feedback!

I use a clip-on lavalier mic and it works great.

Inexpensive, too.

My Canon Video Camera requires a powered mic - so about 98% of those lavalier mic's don't work with it. I did find one model that is powered, so I may try that out. Thanks for the advice!

Episode six is now up - In this one I review/demonstrate the Digital Creations DCTV Slow Scan digitizer. What a cool piece of hardware that thing is! I think you will be surprised at the picture quality it can provide.
I tried to eliminate the background noise of my Falcon SCSI drive case - I can hardly hear it when I am processing the videos in Adobe Premier and even when I play back the completed video on the PC - but as soon as I upload it to YouTube, the high pitched noise is there. Very odd.Maybe I can just wrap up my drive bay in a blanket when I record. Those drives are only about 150 degrees when they are running - so what could possibly go wrong?

Anyway, enjoy all 24 minutes of the supposed "10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast..."

Episode 7 is up - All about my A2200 motherboard

by Dynamic_Computing Sun Oct 07, 2018 5:43 pm

This new episode is all about my nice rare A2200 motherboard - I only know of a handful of these floating around. In this episode I go over the hardware aspects of it, and next I will try an get the little guy working! I have big plans for my A2200 if it works.

Here is a link to the episode.

Don't forget that my existing videos are formatted to play back on many Amiga's - and I have a lot of other videos formatted for Amiga's available on there.

Thanks for subscribing when you watch it, too. I really am trying to break the 100 subscriber mark so I can give the old channel a proper name.

Just watched the episodes regarding the rapid road. Great stuff, thanks!

The link to the second video is mangled, though. You might want to have a look at it.
