  1. 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...

    For the past couple weeks I've been having some issues with the switching on this thing. It's tough to ddescribe... but it's essentially triggering the channel switch triggers on its own, I think, primarily between the first and second presets. At first I would fire up my amp (I just leave the...

    As you can see from the pictures, the truss rod has been moved down (or backwards, depending on your orientation), and is pressed hard into the bottom of the route. As such, I cannot get the truss rod wrench over the nut on the end. Stringing the guitar up increases the bow slightly, as well...

    Hello. I'm not exactly sure if this is the correct forum for this, but it seemed like the right one. If this is wrong, please, re-direct me. Thank you. Let me get down to it. Lol. I'm still kind of new to guitar gear and how it all works. (pedal wiring order etc.) Please. Bear with me? Ha ha...

    Just got a new PS4 pro yesterday. Bought the Uncharted 1-3 pack, started playing. When setting up the PS4 yesterday everything was fine. Today, the screen flickers when the PS4 is in use, with or without the disc in. It also flickers when I use the TV remote to adjust the volume. Any ideas what...

    The 2nd guitarist in one of my bands uses an AX8 (and I'm Kemper) In rehearsal we go into a Tascam interface, the line inputs on the back. My Kemper is set at a certain volume and gets a good signal. The other guys Ax8 gets just barely any signal at all! He's tried a few things but I cannot...
  7. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Okay, I recently posted a thread about my amp having some issues: http://www.metalguitarist.org/forum/guitar-tech-electronics-and-diy/79497-swapping-preamp-tubes-mini-head.html At that time I thought it was the preamp tube on the drive channel. I swapped the tube and the drive channel still...

    Hi all, my RGD has always had a bit of an issue with grounding as it has always buzzed except for when touching the bridge, knob, switch or strings and since installing a Dimarzio Evolution in it, this issue has become more present, picking up even more interference on both pickups. The green...
  9. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hi guys - I'd not noticed it, mostly because I use an effects loop, but the reverb on my Classic 50 is not working. It's one of those "tank in a bag" things that sits in the bottom of the cabinet beneath the speakers. Anyway, I ran through several tests including using a foot switch to...

    As the title says, it's a bourns pot I have in a LTD. Everything works but the volume pot does nothing. The pickups are always on. It was working fine and I cannot find any issues in the wiring. I just double checked everything comparing it to a Duncan wiring diagram and it's right. My solder...
  11. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So yes, I have a 6505 mh and I am wondering if what I am experiencing is "normal". My concerns are in terms of the volume this amp puts out at different channels. For example: The lead is A LOT louder than the clean channel. The clean channel will be almost at noon while the lead will be...

    Almost two weeks ago, I grabbed a set of EMG's that I haven't used in a few months (85/60) and the EMG solderless harness that they were originally wired up with. I've tried a several different things, so I'm going to try to be as concise as possible, to avoid typing a novel. When I hook...

    This is so cool haha!!! Well, if you can read german :flex: Of course, as always when one makes interviews, there's ALWAYS going to be something that's been edited so it's completely wrong; the text suggests I was into punk and "then became a metalhead" when I heard Iron Maidens Brave New...
  14. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hello, I really hope someone here can help me out. I recently purchased a Rocktron Piranha preamp and unfortunately, I got scammed - the unit's left side controls (responsible for program changes, distortion type, etc.) just don't do anything. I've measured those and the buttons themselves do...
  15. Music: Recording Studio
    So I finished a song today in GB but it sounds mono when I go to export it. I used the highest sound quality and even tried uncompressed but everything still comes out 'flat'. What trick(s) am I missing before exporting?

    I've been running a Line 6 Relay G90 for a long time, always loved it but run into the same issues as other users have described, intermittent drop-out. The original transmitter used to do it a bit and when I checked it out the whole unit was turning off and then on again, like the batteries...
  17. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    So I'm normally pretty good about these kinda things, but I'd like a second (or third, fourth, etc) opinion before I just go for a total teardown on the electronics: Charvel 475 Deluxe Exotic, in HSS, with 3 knobs - Volume, Tone, and what I assume is the jackson JE1200 boost circuit. I get fine...
  18. Music: Recording Studio
    So is there anywhere else to pan in reaper besides the little knob? Every time I grab it with my mouse and move my mouse, it just wildy whips from 100% left to right and I cant find tune it. Left clicking doesn't just bring up a menu where I can choose the percentage. The mouse wheel doesn't...
  19. Music: Other Instruments
    So remember this? http://www.metalguitarist.org/forum/music-other-instruments/47585-nbd-warwick-corvette.html I've played it only a handful of times since I bought it 3 years ago, and figured I'd slap some new strings on it tonight and give it a setup. Problem is, the bridge itself is wider...
  20. Music: Recording Studio
    Ok so I'm 99.9% close to closing out all significant glitches I've been having with setting up my personal studio on computer so last big glitch question: I've been having that delayed response issue occasionally when you play but the sound doesn't process until 2 or 3 seconds later. I was...
