Pyle Audio has long specialized in mobile audio setups. This focus extends from the world of awesome car stereo systems to sound systems designed specifically for boats. The boat speakers include things many car setups do not, including weatherproof speakers that can compete with the choppy sounds of the sea and the roar of your boat’s engine.
If you are looking for nautical themed music bound to make your Spotify playlist the boldest on the seven seas we have some suggestions:
- Toto “Rosanna”: A yacht rock classic is a necessity for any playlist at sea. We like “Rosanna” but would settle for “Africa” or any number of other hits by bands like Christopher Cross or Loggins & Messina.
- The Decemberists “The Mariner’s Revenge Song”: Long and expansive this sea shanty tells an intricate story of sea faring danger. It can offer your jaunt a little bit of epic flare.
- Fountains of Wayne “Sink to the Bottom”: Obviously you do not want to sink while at sea but this beautifully sweet ditty will warm your heart and inspire singalongs that will negate these connotations.
- Harry Belafonte “Banana Boat(Day-O)”: Speaking of singalongs, this classic is a must have. Get the everyone on board singing along with the impossible to forget song!
- Styx “Come Sail Away”: Maybe you have a motorboat, that does nothing to deplete the perfection that is this Styx sailing classic!
More than ever before the tools needed to express yourself are accessible. Everyone from musicians to visual artists can create their works and distribute them easier than ever before. This seems even more true of filmmakers.
In the past creating a professional looking film was an impossible task for anyone who lacked financing. In fact even professional productions were often marred by the limits of the equipment a director could afford. As things moved from the quaint and analog world of actual film, to the dynamic and affordable realm of digital video the medium and the way both professionals and amateurs worked in it was revolutionized.
That revolution has meant a decisive improvement in the quality of work being made by even the greenest of movie makers. It is no longer okay to make work that gets a point across but looks rough around the edges, unless that’s what you were going for. Instead viral videos are now put together with the kind of attention to detail formerly commensurate with the works of award winning auteurs.
It is this focus on aesthetics that has Pyle Audio highlighting the importance of light meters. Giving a piece of video the right look requires a specific understanding of the lighting that is present and our affordable and easy to use light meters are perfect for doing just that!
August is here and the dog days of summer are fast approaching. Luckily there is still ample time to soak up the sun and hit the beach before the temperatures start to cool. When heading to the beach you’re going to want some vital supplies like sunscreen, snacks, and of course speakers!
The beach is just not as fun without a great summer soundtrack. Now thanks to your smartphone’s music streaming app and a great portable Bluetooth speaker from Pyle you can enjoy your tunes in the sun for hours at a time. With easy to handle volume control you can keep your playlist to yourself or blast it for a summer barbecue with friends.
Best of all these portable speakers are easy to move anywhere you need to go without sacrificing the bunch of their high quality stereo sound. The Bluetooth technology offers one touch connection on most smartphones and tablets meaning you can easily switch between guests’ separate devices and playlists!
While you are making plans to hit the beach, or have any outdoor fun in the coming month, consider bringing along some easily mobilized entertainment with you!
Building a home studio to record music or make your own podcast is more and more common. While quality recording equipment has becoming more accessible, more user friendly, and more affordable there are still a lot of mistakes people make when building their home studio. Among the most egregious is not properly soundproofing the recording area.
You hear it on a wide array of podcasts by popular comedians and personalities. The bleed of sound from the streets can become distracting and has even made some otherwise interesting recordings unlistenable. For musicians the soundproofing serves two purposes, preserving a quality recording and preserving the peace with neighbors.
If you are planning to put together a home studio sound dampening panels are one of the most important purchases you will make. By installing these panels strategically on the walls of the studio you can ensure that sound will not get in and out. If making something that sounds good is important to you your studio needs panels as soon as possible.
After air conditioning and a functional engine the most vital part of your car is a kicking stereo system, especially in the summer. Whether you are hitting the road for a long vacation or simply heading to the nearest beach you want the company of your favorite music. Music is so intrinsically linked to the summertime that blogs and websites can’t help but step over each other in trying to determine what the “Song of the Summer” is.
So when you are thinking about necessary upgrades for your car this August some new speakers or an upgraded subwoofer is the exact kind of thing you should consider. An improved sound system can last a long time and can even be passed down from car to car if need be. It is an expense that need not be an ongoing burden.
Pyle prides itself on making some of the best mobile audio equipment on the market. In every case these speakers, receivers, and other items are not only high quality but generally far more affordable than what is being offered by the rest of the market. The time to improve your driving experience is now!
Whether you are an avid gardener or a cigar enthusiast trying to keep your humidor the right temperature being able to accurately measure the climate can be vital. Thermometers are just the first most important device in these cases. Often a wind velocity meter and humidity meter can come in handy. Once you become aware of the trends in temperature around your home you will be able to adjust to the needs of whatever hobby has you testing these things.
The good news is often you can get several of these tools in one handy device. Rather than merely being able to measure air pressure or humidity you can measure both with one easy device. This will shorten the process for checking each of these metrics. Pyle has developed a number of these devices and offers them at way better prices than much of their competition.
If you are looking to better understand the climate in or around your home these devices can go a long way in helping.
Keeping large groups of children organized is no easy task and camp counselors know it. As July begins many camps are just getting started and new counselors are looking for tools and systems for keeping things fun and organized. While a clipboard and name tags offer great analogue assistance rallying your troops might require a little more juice.
A megaphone is a great asset for anyone in charge of a large group. Simply being heard by all of those kids is going to be vital this summer. In addition to amplifying your voice these megaphones have sirens and other sound effects, perfect for creating signals that kids understand. When you hit the siren all of the kids can lineup in a central location. This is a great way to get organized quick in emergency situations.
No matter how loud you yell a megaphone will offer you the extra volume and clear authority that you will need to be an effective leader. Be careful to not over do it. When it comes to a megaphone a little bit goes a long way!
Today is a very exciting day for home recording and podcasting. Marc Maron, the misanthropic comedy guru who turned the comedy podcast into a phenomenon, is welcoming his biggest scoop ever. President Barack Obama will be on his podcast WTF, recorded in his garage.
This kind of news shows just how far the art of podcasting has come over the last few years. It is a testament to the openness of the Internet, the popularity of this formerly niche format, and the advances in home recording technology that has facilitated podcaster’s across the globe.
We have played our part by offering mixers, microphones, and other gear at prices that are easily accessible. The results has been a media explosion that has now landed at the highest halls of political power. For anyone who has been paying attention podcasting has been a slowly growing snowball achieving new milestones with each passing month and every passing year. There was Serial, the incredibly popular true crime exploration, hitting a million downloads. There has been the success of Chris Hardwick, jumping from his Nerdist podcast to a position akin to being the hipster Ryan Seacrest with a number of television projects.
In a way it was only a matter of time until Marc Maron was trying to get the occupant of the White House to open up at the Cat Ranch.
A recent study suggested that, whether they heed the warnings or not, consumers generally like to know the ingredients and calories in what they are eating. Awareness is important when it comes to health and knowing what we put in our bodies allows us the chance to make wiser choices.
The recent phenomena of step tracking technology available on wearable wristbands and “watches” has been received in comparably positive ways. Most people think they have a sense of how much they walk but when those details are ironed out into numbers it can be surprising. In many cases people think they walk more than they actually do. When they find out the truth small changes seem smart, such as taking the stairs.
If you would like to become more aware of your health getting a Fitmotion Smart Activity Tracker is an excellent first step. Learn your patterns and start to adjust to a more healthy and active lifestyle starting from day one!
The drum pad has had a strange life in popular music. From its early days as an integral part of the sound of German electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk to its short lived heyday as a central instrument in a variety of synth-pop bands in the 1980’s through it’s more than 30 year run as an option for everyone from Nine Inch Nails to St. Vincent, electronic drums have developed something of a storied history.
Electronic drums were initially created to accurately approximate the sound of live drums in a more affordable, more easily amplified, and more easily transported guise. While the accuracy of those sounds was questionable many musicians found incredible uses for the new devices and their particular capabilities. These days the machines can more accurately create the sounds of real drums or they can offer an endless range of sonic possibilities far beyond the range of sound found on original drum machines.
Pyle Audio has taken the electronic drums even further into a range of easy affordability. No longer prohibitively expensive bedroom recording artists and rich pop stars alike can now wield these nifty devices in service of their next songs!
