Re: Electric guitar for a beginner

For the music you are looking to play I suspect you’ll probably be happiest with an Ibanez, LTD or Schecter. Even their entry level guitars ‘feel’ metal and should have high output humbuckers and fairly fast necks. Definitely try some out in a store and buy the one you enjoy playing. Also bear in mi...

Re: Do you know a good compressor for the Fender American Deluxe Guitar?

I have a boss CS3 that can get pretty extreme but used carefully you can use it fairly transparently.

Re: Marshalls...

I thought I would bring this thread back because I too decided I needed a Marshall and I wanted a small versatile combo I bought a SC20C which is the JCM800 in a 20W (switchable to 5W) combo with a celestion V type 10” There’s a low sensitivity input capable of glassy cleans and loads of headroom (b...

Re: Recommend budget "dial-a-tone multi fx" to cover a covers gig

I vote for the Digitech RP series I have the RP360 and it covers a lot of ground. FX, drive, amp and cab sim etc You can set it in preset mode to switch between sounds or use it as 3 discrete FX on / off per preset There’s the option of adding an extra control pedal to do both functions at once, I t...

Re: iOS guitar tone apps

I agree with the vote for Digitech. Had a pocket pod in the past but it didn’t respond as well to playing dynamics as the digitech.

Drum software for V drum player?

My brother is a drummer with no interest in recording, and an old-ish model Roland TD9 kit. He mainly practices on headphones. I wondered if playing through a drum software library would sound more like a kit in a room and was curious if anyone here had any recommendations for products that would fi...

Re: Help with metal tone!

Do you have any particular references for what you'd like your tone to be? Bands or tracks you rate? I have the super badass and can get decent metal tones (to my ears) from it into a clean amp - but perhaps you have a specific sound in your head?

Re: Public events with PA, recording and streaming at the same time

George, not related to the audio side of things but Re your original post I can confirm the Sony alpha series will happily record to an internal card while streaming video through the micro hdmi output (they will output whatever you see on the camera screen so remember to turn off the overlay with s...

Re: Newbie Question: Do I need to actually record a click track with each instrument take

Thanks to all of you for your replies. I have sooo much to learn. The reason I was looking at the mixer/USB combos was that I also need something to use to practice that I can mix audio out from my phone with an instrument into headphones and those seemed that they would do double duty. But perhaps...
