  1. General Music Discussion
    This is one of the most glorious trainwrecks I've ever heard. The extremely enthusiastic *pitch perfect* lower voices in the "harmonized" gang vocal/backing vocal sections are what really make it. Definitely the trvest demo recording of 2019 though. None of these black metal bands releasing...
  2. General Music Discussion
    The previous thread sucked FUCKING ASS but here's a new one with a completed test composition. I made this yesterday in a couple of hours only. It's mostly just to showcase my attempt at late 90s / early 2000s style game music. I love games like Age Of Empires 2, Celtic Kings and dig music of...

    The more "eyebrow raising" the better! I find this stuff a bit interesting. Before any posts it Iron Maiden, Judas Priest etc etc aren't really "speed metal" by any means but they dont really count into this theme. It's just expected they make songs like Aces High or Ram It Down. I'm talking...
  4. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    So I decided to build an amp, from parts. Partially due to the confidence gained from fixing a jcm800 and thinking "how hard can it be". Anyway, I've settled on blogging about it, and anyone interested can follow it here: How to Make Friends and Electrocute People I'll post updates in this...

    My band played at a festival the other day and we decided to try and set up 3 cameras and it worked out fine... The sound could have been better, but the mixing desk was that stupid digital type with no separate outputs per channel (and I just bought myself a Cymatic Live-Recorder 16 for...
  6. General Music Discussion
    Was listening to this running this morning. Less grim than I usually like, but whatever, I dig the huge amount of feel good choruses on the new Soilwork. I got like, 3 hours of sleep last night, and could be completely off on this. But is there any way they weren't attempting to write a Journey...
  7. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Just got hold of my brother's Nikon D7000 to shoot some play-through videos for my next release. Decided to get familiar with it before I got into recording those videos, so here's my first attempt! I'd love some tips and tricks to improve the overall video quality. I really want these next 3...

    I am wiring up an HSH strat with two push buttons for extra tone options so I wanted to see how close I got to the clean wiring standard. What do you guys think?
  9. Music: Recording Studio
    So after months of reading up on here on how to get a basic recording i've finally recorded my first song. Its not my song - its my friends band, and after they got ripped off in the past with recordings which came out really bad I offered to record a new song they wrote as practice for me and...
  10. Music: Recording Studio
    So... I got me a Scarlett 2i4 interface a few weeks ago. After putzing around and getting some practice with it I decided to record a song that my old band wrote together. We had recorded one album, but it was essentially a live album as we only had 8 hours to do it and we all played at the same...

    Recorded a quick little snippet of lead to test syncing audio captured from separate devices, didn't sound too awful so I thought I'd share. Let me know what you think. Quality had to be WAYYYY scaled down as I uploaded from my phone.

    Tomek just sent me this link and it just blew me away the nerve some people have. Cool story though ! :D A story of non existing BlacKat and pity scam - Sevenstring.org
  13. Music: Recording Studio
    Hey guys! I was hoping to get some feedback on a mix I'm currently working on. I just started yesterday and have been primarily focusing on trying to get a good tone using free amp sims + redwirez cabinets for the guitars. the only guitars not reamped is the solo which had no DI supplied. Drums...

    Only thing grabbing my eye is the DKA7 which has really sweet specs for the price :yesway: Hopefully these new pros are MIM. Also there is a black Broderick but no pictures yet. Photos & Links: Jackson Broderick Pro Soloist 7 SW Jackson Pro DKA7 Dinky SW Jackson JS32-7Q Dinky NA...

  16. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So you all remember the trainwreck plank that Roter made me during the SS.org run. I've been emailing them back and forth for ages since then, and the deal was that they would make a new guitar, and if they couldn't do that right then they would give me my money back. The specs we agreed on was...
  17. Music: Recording Studio
    Well after many threads on here asking for information and hours of scouring the internet for tips on mixing (Nolly's 'Incredible guide to mixing' post on here helped a lot so thanks to the guy who posted that guide!) here it is. This is a song me and the other guitarist in my band wrote...
  18. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Pardon the shit playing, I just picked up a guitar and noodled something for the matching. Guitar is my mahogany Carvin CS4 with BKP Aftermaths. http://soundcloud.com/factanonmusica/peavey-6505-tone-match This clip has the stock 4x12 v30 cab on it. Path: THD (bright/deep on) out -> MOTU 828...
  19. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Just replaced the tone pot in my old M207 with a push-pull pot to split both pickups (a Blaze II in the neck and a Blaze Custom in the bridge). Considering it was my first attempt at doing any sort of wiring on my guitars, it actually went really smoothly. Really really pleased with the...
  20. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I have two guitars that seem to have uneven frets; one of my 1527's buzzes ever so slightly on the 15th fret A string and my Agile LP copy buzzes on the 3rd fret treble E string. Now to be fair i set my action very low, raising the action a bit does eliminate the fret buzz on both guitars. Is...
