Re: The tone wood myth?

I can imagine how the weight, density & rigidity of a solid body guitar can affect the sustain. You can feel the body resonate when a string is picked & the frequency at which it resonates, even though it's too quiet to hear over the sound of the string. What I've always struggled with is se...

Re: Effect of swapping pickups on my Godin for Seymour Duncans

One option would be a Duesenberg Domino P90. Great for clean sounds and considerably cheaper than Seymour Duncan. But heed all the advice above first.

Re: Izotope

I'm a big fan of Ozone & Neutron and use them a lot, but personally I was very disappointed with Nectar. Firstly, it doesn't really do anything you can't do better with simple native plug-ins, and secondly it has a habit of forgetting any tweaks you've carefully made when you save & re-open ...

Re: Cubase 12 is out

12.0.10 installed fine for me, however it baulked a couple of times updating the download manager to get access to it. It may have just been that the servers were busy because it worked on the 3rd or 4th attempt. I don't really mind too much either way regarding the dongle but I only ever run Cubase...

Re: Steve Vai - Teeth of the Hydra (Official Music Video)

I'm only a recent convert to Steve Vai, after I discovered his connection with Frank Zappa (I'm not naturally a shred enthusiast, but anyone who played with Frank tends to get my admiration and a closer listen ;) ). Was this possibly because I was too lazy to post the link to his Zappa audition int...

Roland BTM-1

Just sharing my first impressions on the Roland BTM-1 Bluetooth speaker with instrument input. https://www.roland.com/uk/products/btm-1/ This seems to have been around for a while but I only became aware of it in the last week or so. If I'd forked out the inital RRP of £176 I'd probably have had hig...

Re: Budding Audio Engineer

Another option would be something like a Zoom R8. Has built-in microphones and effects he could use. It records standalone to an SD card or PC and would be ideal for mixing and blending his recordings. No harder to use than a smartphone and might unleash his creativity.

Re: Effects pedals… inputs and outputs.

My live rig has been 2/3 wireless for some time now. The only guitar that isn't is the Variax because of the power supply. You do realise that taking the strings off doesn't make a guitar 'wireless'? ;) Two sets of these (well, their predecessor): https://www.gear4music.com/PA-DJ-and-Lighting/SubZe...

Re: Active guitars

The only active solid body guitar I have is a Washburn G15V. It has active pickups and an active boost mid-range tone circuit. I don't use it much now but even when it was my main guitar the battery lasted a couple of years. It never actually needed a new battery I just don't like leaving it in too ...

The Elf wrote: Tue Mar 15, 2022 12:37 am I did a non-grace period update and found the process complex - TBH I still don't truly know how I got it working. I just threw codes at everything until something worked. Too many codes and registration systems.

Just reading this from you has made me feel better about myself! :lol:
