Disabling C++ exceptions in Visual Studio 2015

When using the STL with Visual Studio 2015 – and older versions, probably –, C++ exceptions are enabled by default. To view the options specified below, first add at least one CPP file to your project.

The first thing to change on the project settings is under C/C++ code generation, enable C++ exceptions: set this to “no”.

Then, on the project settings, C/C++ preprocessor, to each configuration and platform individually, add the following preprocessor definition:
This way you’ll be able to use the STL without the C++ exception handling mechanism.

Clean tones of PRS Custom 24

This is the most beautiful sounding guitar I’ve ever owned or played, possibly. Being a hardcore superstrat player, I’m having a hard time adapting to the radiused fretboard and the unbalanced body shape – not unbalanced as a Les Paul, but definitely butt-heavy.

So I recorded this improvisation using the POD HD500X looper. I see myself selling this guitar soon: that’s how I want to remember it.

The video was recorded with the great Samsung Galaxy S6, in 1080p and 60 fps.
