Nuno, the God of Guitar, Is Back!

Extreme is one of my all-time favorite bands, and Nuno Bettencourt for me at least technically the best guitarist ever.

Can we all please kneel down and worship this god for this incredible guitar solo? It starts at 2:20.

There really isn’t anything like this anymore. There hasn’t been in the last 30 years. Nuno is back! I mean … holy shit, have a look and listen to this:

This was worth a little post from a fanboy.

Sound Lock: Volume Limiter for Windows

What if I told you that you could be the master of your Windows PC’s volume levels, per sound device, per channel? A software limiter to avoid bursts of loud sound.

With Sound Lock, you can easily set your desired sound output limit and enjoy your music or video without worrying about sudden bursts of deafening sound. Plus, you can even set different sound limits for each output device on your computer — because who says your speakers and headphones have to have the same volume?

That’s not all. You can set volume limits for each channel individually or use the master filter mode for ultimate sound control.

And the best part? Sound Lock is a tiny little app that doesn’t make a big fuss. It may not look like a supermodel, but it gets the job done. So go ahead, set it and forget it. Your ears will thank you.
