  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I've got an Ampeg VL503 (please don't be a wanker and say the amp itself is the problem). Whenever I turn on the Loop, the tone becomes much 'weaker'. If I press the 'bypass loop' button, the tone is a motherfucker. This amp has one of those loops that has a +4/-10 switch but it makes no...

    Hi guys, I'm using a template that I've developed for a year or so. It is originally based on an old song where I used 2/4 and 6/8 time signatures here and there. Before I saved this as a template I deleted all Of the recorded sounds and midi and set the time sig to 4/4. The problem is that when...

    I'm trying to host an arma 3 session to play missions I made with some friends. Does anyone know how to make that happen without renting a server? Info on the web is spotty. I read this is because gamespy went down and you have to forward your ports and use some VPN like hamachi? Does anyone...
  4. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Hi, I have a EVH 5150 III 50 watts, but, this amp have a tone very tight and a bit strident. Maybe because I use a PRS 57/08 Pickups, and this pickups give a tone PAF 50's decade, is clear and cristaline, but is a vintage pickups and low gain, humbuckers of course. I need a pickup that give me a...

    Came across a Hughes and Kettner Switchblade and Randall XL cab (the ones with V30s and speaker simulated stereo outputs) at such a stupid price I had to impulse buy it. Seriously running out of room for these things. Perfect timing too given my triaxis is out for a few weeks for repairs and I...
  6. Music: Recording Studio
    Hi, I am fairly new to the world of recording and on the advice of others bought a Presonus AudioBox (the alternative being a Focusrite 2i4). It came bundled with a DAW and is great for what I want to do which is You Tube video performances. The downside is I cannot seem to bypass the preamp...

Does anyone know what the problem could be is this common and I know some of you may say take it to...

    Hi all I'm having a problem with my recently installed Mastertone SPA pickups, both bridge & neck. These havent been in production for nearly a decade, I've had one lying boxed for a couple of years after having it installed in a Jackson Kelly for a while, and i bought another 2nd hand online...

    Sorry if I'm a little vague, as I don't know the correct terminology for some of this. I just recently started tinkering with this stuff. Anyway, I've tried this with both my POD X3 Live and GSP1101 (Even though I have the modded firmware for the 1101 and can use IR cabs internally on the rack...

    I finally got my Yamaha back from the shop. I had the Invader replaced with an EMG 81, and I also had my tech wire the three way switch back into the signal chain. After looking up the model number and electronics these came with, I've found that the three positions were: full on, normal volume...

    I'm just now using the 500 as an effects unit, of which I like the layout. I've set up another bank for effects only/4CM, with the FX loop just before where the disabled amp model is. I think I've got the levels right (+5Db on loop send, master 60% up), but I'm getting a weird hum when I've...

    Got my Mesa back from my guitarist because it's been acting up, with volume randomly increasing and decreasing. First things to check are the power tubes, so I swapped in my old reliable testing set, turned it on, and started playing. Then stopped when I started to smell an unmistakable "hot...
