  1. Music: Song A Week
    Let's get this Lead A Week thing going. Here are a few ideas I'm batting around - would love some input on these so we can get as many folks participating as possible. Time/Length - We should probably run this in-between Song A Week Challenges, so there's no time-conflict for those who want...
  2. Music: Recording Studio
    Just overhauled my recording setup and purchased new monitors and a new interface. After doing a bunch of research I decided on the Focusrite Clarett 4pre. I did a test recording on it yesterday for the first time and the input gain knob had to be turned down to 0 to get a signal that was even...
  3. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So I was talking to my wife about setting up a rig upstairs and she said "No. You don't realize how loud you are in the basement." So I'm looking for an amp that has built in effects/tones, headphone jack and the ability to plug my android phone in to play backing tracks off of youtube. Don't...

    What do you guys think of this amp? What does it do well? Any complaints? Which bands use it?
  5. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    There's a local guy who has a 2004 RG7321 "project" guitar he's wanting to sell dirt cheap. It's a bare body and neck and he says he has some cheap 7-string pups he could toss in. So I'd need a hardtail, two pots, selector switch, etc. (I have two sets of Hipshot tuners so I could get by with...

    I read often one wants 1000ohm or something like that for recording proper signal. But on Radial I read this about the J48 (which I have two of) "My guitar amplifier has an input impedance of 1-Mohm. The J48 has an input impedance of 220-kohm. Why would they be any difference? Traditionally a 1...

    Hi peoples of the interwebs, I'm buying a new guitar soon, and I have a dilemma. I have a set budget for whatever guitar I get, and I have the chance to get a cheap Jim Root Squier Tele. Now I know Squier isn't really the best brand, but it's a sig model, so do you guys think its worth shelling...

  9. Music: Other Instruments
    So a few years back Rondo Music made this: I tried to order one but they were sold out before I could. They have made more since but they have looked like shit and the necks were made incorrectly - massively too wide! SO 3 or so years later they have made them again and correctly this time...
  10. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    A while ago I put the set of Al DiMeola PUPs in my Charvel 750XL. I love the neck pickup and also love the bridge but in the bridge I am finding I need more output and less mids. The lead sound of that pickup is very good but just not enough guts in it to be what I need for tracking heavy riffs...
  11. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Hi, new to the board, let me know if I am doing something wrong. I wanted to talk about this guitar (or the 6-string version) with someone who plays, due to several reasons: - When you got the guitar, was thte action set really high? Was it a good or bad thing for you? I had to take mine down...
  12. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    We're a garage band looking to become weekend warriors. So far, we don't play anything huge. Our big shows are opening for bands like Periphery, Texas in July and other metalcore stuff (200-400 attendance). We would love to go wireless but can't each afford Sennheisers (and a G90 for that...

    Okay, I have a TonePort UX2, I'm tired of the Line 6 tones and decided to try out some of the free VST plugins floating around. I can get a great tone with VSTs and Impulses, but I can't figure out how to apply the effects in a way I can monitor them as I'm recording. As it stands now, I'm...
  15. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I have entered a state of "re-thinking my rig", and would appreciate some input I'm new. Hi! I'm quiet in person but blather on forever when I ask a question on a forum. So, I'll try to format this in a manner that allows you to skip my rambling and get straight to the question, if you feel...

    Looking at ordering a new PC, can anyone offer a critque? Anything I should upgrade, or any components I should stay away from? I'm not very familiar with what the top brands are as far as PC components. Just looking to build a nice home PC that is capable of good recording, streaming audio...

    I'm working with Studio One v. 2, and in the preferences for audio I'm seeing the usual buffer settings (32/64/128/256 etc) which when changed gives the expected input latency, but also output latency. The question is, is output latency something I have to worry about, or is it something that...
