It is under control, compared to the guitar building addiction I am currently going through. :D

Re: Gainaholics Anonymous

Or you can just have the ones you want for a particular sound. To clarify I never ever had all four on at once, unless I was trying for a horrible sound.

Re: Gainaholics Anonymous

Probably about right, before I switched to the Helix I had four on mine. Different flavours and intensities of drive. I have a fifth that I was going to start playing with and then the Helix arrived . . .

Re: Roland Aira Compact

I remember some 15 or so years ago I would sometimes leave the office where I was working and take my MPC500 to the park for a little creative work. Nobody pointed and laughed, but nothing good came of it either.

Re: The tone wood myth?

My entirely worthless opinion is that guitar tone is like a school French essay. You start with a perfect score appropriate for the Platonic ideal guitar (ideal for a particular genre/player), and each thing you don't get right loses marks. Construction setup and pickups are areas you can lose big m...

Re: I really need help

The coloured pieces are the ends of the string, often known as 'ball ends'.

You need to buy new strings and you'll get that piece attached to the string.

Re: Fostex D80 with Yamaha AW16g

The AW16G is a 16 track multitrack recorder/mixer in it's own right, what does the D80 give you over recording on the yamaha?

Re: UAD goes Native (*not* Apple silicon)

The bit that grabbed my attention was them being free if you own the UAD HW version.

If I understand this correctly I can add my spare cpu cores processing power to the DSP I already have for my UAD plugins, for the cost of an ilok? This really does seem to good to be true.

Re: Chord Numbering System

To me, without any melodic reference those four chords sound like it's in C. Root chord to me is where the tension resolves and it doesn't 'feel' like there needs to be a next chord. If I strum through the sequence and go to the dm again from the C I'm back into a tension and feel a need to move. No...

Well... maybe if you had a small synth that already housed several synth engines along with various effects :tongue:

Nicely done sir, nicely done.

Re: One Synth Challenge VI : The Undiscovered PulseWidth

Hope so, has it really been a year already?

Also, if I nail three small semi modulars together does that count as a single synth?

Re: Pickasobow

I LOVE the eBow. It is one of the most haunting, ethereal sounds you can get from a guitar - and yet so few guitarists are interested in even trying it. Much like the humble volume pedal. Damn, you plankers are a conservative lot! :lol: I love the e-bow too, and possibly use it more than I should, ...
