Jack Wifi Guitar Cable
For decades now guitarists all over the world have been using wireless guitar systems to free them from cables on stage. Let’s face it cables can have their issues including the embarrassing pull your lead out of your amp, pull your amp over and tripping over and face-planting the stage. These traditional wireless systems have always relied on UHF radio signals to beam the guitar signal to a receiver in your rack, however they are not without their issues. The logical progression from this system would be to use WiFi instead, I’m not going to pretend I know whether there are any inherent issues with using WiFi instead but the Scottish company behind Jack think they have the WiFi Guitar Cable sussed and I have to say it is a very cool innovation if it works as well as they say it does. Check out the Jack Kickstarter Campaign video below to see and hear it in action:

Now of course live use is just one application for Jack, the second and probably one that will interest the most people is that you can stream the guitar signal direct to your computer for recording or for using with modelling apps as an amp for pracice/jamming without the need for an audio interface!

“Simply plug Jack into any guitar, amp or pedal and instantly go wireless. Stream uncompressed professional grade real time audio between instruments, amps and devices. Then with no additional hardware, wirelessly connect to your favorite Wi-Fi devices like tablets, PCs and phones. All for about US$ 280, no more cables, no more recording interfaces, no more batteries.”

Jack Olsen's 1972 Porsche 911 dubbed Black Beauty.

Almost two several years in the past we wrote about the twelve-Gauge Garage Jack Olsen created to property his multifarious Porsche 911 – its 1972 bodywork hides four many years of Porsche elements, like the transaxle from a 1977 911 and the engine from 1995 911, for example. It weighs 2,400 lbs . and has 272 horsepower, and Olsen employs it daily driving and for track times, the latter excursions that includes selfmade, bolt-on aero parts.

German journal Automobile Bild stopped by Olsen’s home to seem in on the Porsche called “Black Splendor II,” and we get a number of more particulars about the mods he is produced, like swapping out for fiberglass human body panels and welding Fuchs wheel centers to broader Corvette barrels so he could operate different tires.

Most importantly, even though, Olsen divulges his passion for decreasing his lap time at Willow Springs. Randy Pobst established the lap file for a manufacturing vehicle close to the 2.five-mile Massive Willow keep track of in a Porsche 918 Spyder at one:23.fifty four throughout a Motor Trend take a look at (the outright record, according to Willow Springs, is held by Michael Andretti at one:06.050 in a CART automobile). Even more down the record, Steve Millen drove a 415-hp 911 GT3 RS all around the same monitor in 1:33.14 – a car 600 lbs . heavier than Olsen’s. More than the previous fourteen a long time of tinkering with his vehicle, Olsen claims his data displays his lap time is now down to one:26.88, attained on the working day of filming the Vehicle Bild video. That time would place him in between the 1:26 flat posted by Dominik Farnbacher in a 608-hp Dodge Viper SRT-10 ACR and the one:28.ninety three put up by Pobst in a four hundred-hp, 991-series 911. You can hear Olsen notify it in his possess words in the online video.
