  1. Music: Recording Studio
    So I have a lot of new guitar stuff going on like using a modeler and trying to learn reaper a bit. Had an issue where my guitar would randomly sound fizzy and I was getting a lot of artifacts. I also had a lot of noise issues. So I tried a bunch of different stuff - swapped cables, restated...
  2. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I have a set of 7 string EMG's coming in. There going into an Ibanez RGA7. The guitar has 1 volume pot and an EQ selector switch. I want to wire that switch to kill power from the battery, so I can leave the guitar plugged in and not have to worry about battery life. Will this work? Thanks.

    Out of curiosity. How is the power not being sapped from an amp through the jack or your interface like some usb powered gear?

    Why change from passives?! My apartment has un-earthed wall sockets and I have noticed all passive pickups make a slight hum. I have no idea I why I haven't bothered with it for this whole year I've lived here, but until we move, I will use passive pickusp exclusively to get rid of that slgiht...

    Good shape overall. The pickups were swapped out for an emg 85/60 set and wired to only have a single volume and 3 way switch. Not my doing but I imagine it was to save some room inside of the already tiny control cavity! (It's got a battery and pcb in there now. Looking for $820 shipped. To...

    In a quest to get my e39 running, which is going horribly may I add, I pulled the battery off my E46 as a temporary measure. I thought nothing of it, as I have a key to get back in the boot, right? Wrong. Closed the boot, with no battery attached. I now have no way to get back in the boot, as...

    So, this is a common problem in my experience, but i bought a boss pedal, and it works with the ac adapter, but the battery wont work. I have a couple boss pedals like this. Is it as simple as soldering in a new battery clip or is there more to it when they quit working?

    Hey guys, I've had my 4S for a year, not a bad little phone. In the last two weeks though, the battery has started acting very odd. Normally I run my phone during the day and plug it in while I sleep. No issues with a phone doing this in the 6 or so years I've had one. My phone will go from...

    I got a text today saying that my package would be arriving between 17:52 and 18:52, and my delivery driver was called Kev. This was awesome, as I finish work at 4pm on Wednesday and Thursday. So I got home, decided I'd had enough of waiting downstairs, got to the 2nd flight of stairs and bang...

    Flight's in 4 hours, got plenty of movies to watch. I'd like to squeeze as much juice out of the MBP as I can. I've disabled the Airport and Bluetooth, and am planning on keeping the display as dim as I can. What else should I be turning off to maximize my runtime?
  20. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Has anyone else ever figured out, if you leave a guitar with a piezo plugged into the instrument cable... will it drain the piezo battery? I'm wondering if I left my wireless transmitter in the guitar and plugged in, but I'm on the magnetic p/u's setting via the toggle switch, am I ok? I'd...
