Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: LIVE [9 Disc DVD Box Set]
Quibble all you want about which bands have or haven’t made the cut for Hall of Fame induction. This Time/Life collection presents a stunning array of rare, one-of-a-kind performances from the last 24 years of Hall of Fame induction ceremonies, many of them available for the first time on home video. Bringing this home for under $150 is a steal, making this set the perfect gift for anyone who takes popular music seriously.
If you ever needed more proof that great things come in small packages, this product easily stands out. For the concert-goer who loves recording live music and actually having the music sound good when you get it home, this portable recorder offers the ability to record a room mix via an on-board microphone while simultaneously recording a stereo mix via the mixing board. It features a built-in mixer of its own, the only handheld recorder allowing recording on four channels at the same time. Every indie band should have one of these – it’s like having a mixing console in the palm of your hand!
For drummers from beginner to expert, this six-piece electronic drum set is here to blow your mind. An acoustic drum kit has its advantages, but can be difficult and expensive to maintain. From Amazon:
“[Drummers will find some of the most in-demand acoustic drum sounds from legendary drum brands, a huge arsenal of top producers’ go-to snare drums, real American, Canadian, Chinese, and Turkish cymbals, and a choice selection of classic drum machine and electronic percussion sounds that have fueled the biggest hit records.”
The big seller: The DM10 module features the world’s first drum-sound module enabling you to load new sound sets via USB connection from your own computer in addition to the effects which already come pre-loaded. This means that your sounds will always stay fresh, current and cutting edge. No single acoustic set can provide that much versatility for such a low price.
Perfect for your resident YouTuber, this compact yet full-featured HD camcorder allows for extended zoom without sacrificing image quality, while recording audio in Dolby Digital stereo! You can copy your videos directly to an external hard disk drive or by USB to your computer. And your camcorder can access videos stored on the external hard drive for playback on your TV, allowing you to utilize the camcorder’s handy playback features. Most important, you don’t have to sacrifice video quality to take advantage of this affordable option.
