Re: It's Come To Body Parts

I remember reading many years ago that some classical guitarists used to superglue sections cut from ping-pong balls to their broken nails. No idea how successful it was but sounds preferable to visiting a nail bar.

Re: Nile Rodgers Guitar Auction

I sometimes wonder if your guitar collection already contains a humbucker, a single coil and a P90, then nothing you buy will sound any different to anyone but you. Well, assuming you mean a solid body, semi-hollow and hollow body version of each... ;) Obviously that's what I meant. Also I assumed ...

Re: Nile Rodgers Guitar Auction

I feel like this a safe space to raise this so at the risk of being accused of heresy, I'll just throw it out for critique. I sometimes wonder if your guitar collection already contains a humbucker, a single coil and a P90, then nothing you buy will sound any different to anyone but you.

Re: Cubase 12 - Free upgrade code

It's £136 minus 30% once you've entered the code, which is about £95. But it doesn't appear until you've added it to the basket.

Re: Natural sounding headphones.

Grado SR325e (now 'x') are the least occlusive headphones I've ever used. I've no idea how accurate they are though. But then I find HD25's comfortable compared to 702's so I may just have a strange head!

Re: Nile Rodgers Guitar Auction

I read this as Nile Rodgers Guitar Action & thought I bet he has it set quite high for all that choppy rhythm stuff. Some nice things on offer though & not silly prices if that's what they actually go for.

Re: Cubase 12 - Free upgrade code

To be honest there's nothing really useful to me in C11 that I haven't got in C9... Export queues - saved me hours of work and mistakes! I don't even know what that means! We operate at very different levels. I'm aware I don't even scratch the surface of Cubase's capability, but I stick with it bec...

Cubase 12 - Free upgrade code

Steinberg have emailed me a code for a 30% Black Friday upgrade to Cubase 11. To be honest there's nothing really useful to me in C11 that I haven't got in C9 but for just £95 (rather than £136) it seems maybe prudent to upgrade now. What's making me suspicious is the offer also includes an automati...

Re: Yamaha preamp revivification

It looks like it might be from an APX 9C. But I'm going from memory so could be mistaken.

Re: Steinberg announce ID based licensing

Pretty sure Steinberg wouldn't cut their existing customers off at the knees and that the existing pre-v12 Cubase will continue running on the dongle; it just might not get too many updates after Steinberg Licensing comes on stream. But it'll all be asked and hopefully answered in the Steinberg.net...

Re: Getting "Analogue Warmth?"

What plug-ins are you currently using? As you're using Cubase try Quadrafuzz if you haven't already. Don't let the name put you off, for years I ignored it thinking it was a fuzzbox emulation. It's far superior from anything I've used from Izotope etc. for adding 'warmth' & best of all it's free...

Re: Yet another build!

The whole build is great but I really love the way you've done the control cover on the back. Very classy. :thumbup:
