    So here I am with a cool PC with 2 monitors, and a work laptop with a tiny 15" display. What's the slickest way to run my laptop through these monitors? Just a splitter through the other inputs on the monitors? Any way I can also use my PC's keyboard (and mouse), instead of the laptop keys?

  4. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hi all, I'm new (again) to electric guitar and unfortunately, my wife does not like hearing metal guitar so I'm going to have to spend most of my time playing through headphones and a MacBook. As a plus side, I can do this also in the early morning and evenings without offending neighbors. I'm...

    THANKS JEFF :wub: So yeah, I'm thinking about building a fun crazy rig for playing live shows, because although I already have a Roadking, why not have more? Basically, I want to use the ES-5 to switch between the two preamps I'm playing through the most, and will either run the 2:90 power amp...

    Hi, does someone here uses a downtuned guitar using thicker string gauges (like D'addario EXL148 or similar)? Can someone post a pic of the nut with a similar setup? I've ordered a new guitar incl. a setup for drop c from a (well know) guitar shop and I'm not really happy with the results. It's...
  7. Music: Other Instruments
    Total (drums,cymbals,hardware, etc) , I always enjoy learning new instruments to write stuff from a new perspective, and I already do guitar and bass. I would rather buy something used (or new) at a slightly higher price I can resell if I decide it's not for me, than spend $300-400 on a POS...

    Here is my setup for convenience in that the only cable I actually have to plug in at a show is a single power cable! Everything that can be is wireless and battery powered. The very basic building blocks here are an iPad, an FRFR wedge (in this case, an Alto TS210), and the IK Multimedia iRig...

    Livewire Passive direct box, Hosa ATT 448 inline attenuator set at -30 Db. I used a XLR female to 1/4" male to plug into an out on my audio interface. I reamped through my GSP 1101 to check the input level was good, and not too hot. Checked the signal through a JC 120 patch to make sure...

    Is there a video (hell even a set of instuctions with pics would do) that explains how to setup a tremolo on a PRS? Im mainly looking at how to properly set the 6 set? screws. Im having issues not being able to lower my action on my PRS SE CU24. The saddle is bottomed out and the trem is sitting...
  11. Music: Recording Studio
    So after years and years of dealing with the hassle of recording interfaces (I don't have a space I will be staying in long enough to justify a rack mount interface and a desk, and I was tired of shit shifting everytime I wanted to plug/unplug something in/looking messy in general) and the USB...

    Might interest some of you, my latest video where I show how I hook up my amp and my AX8 pedal using the 4 cable method:

    I'm new to this as I've used android off and on since smartphones came out, but I now own my first mac for the computing side. I did a quick google, and this link seems pretty useful: How to get your iTunes music onto Android | Android Central I'm just wondering what others use before I go...
  14. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I recently recorded rhythm guitar with EMG 60 in the bridge and it's just so much clearer than an EMG 81. I still like the 81 for lead work the most, but the 60 really brings out every note you play kinda like a good passive, but still is compressed in typical EMG fashion. It sounds fine in...

    I have a Focusrite 2i4, trying to set it up on Reaper and doesn't seem to be working out. I went to ''preference'', ''Audio'', ''device''. Audio system is set on ASIO, ASIO driver Focusrite USB 2.0, I checked the Request sample rate box and the Request block size (44100 & 512). Tried to record...

    While I'm getting my S540 modded, I got this for under 100 bucks. It's a no name 'Freedom' mini guitar. At the price it was being sold, I couldn't resist, even for the novelty lulz. Surprisingly it sounded pretty good on it's own, but to be playable, it needed a setup. A proper setup set...
  17. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So, I bought this guitar for my cousin back in the early/mid 00's. After a few years, he passed it back to me. A few years after that, I passed it back to him. Now, a few years later, he passed it back to me. :lol: She's gotten some abuse over the years and is in need of a good setup, clearly...
  18. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Just curious if anybody else does this, they have guitars setup for when it's cold or hot, etc. I don't really have the best AC system in the world so I switch guitars when the temperature changes. Am I just crazy or do other people do this too?
  19. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I just picked up my guitar after a month of not using it (it's a B.C. Rich KKV with a Kahler hybrid tremolo). I tuned the strings and immediately came across a problem. Every time I tune a string, the bridge raises and all the strings go out of tune. The bridge doesn't stay in position at all...

    Hey guys, I was looking on the BKP website and it said in order to do ibanez inline style switching I would have to flip the magnet. Does that mean physically take the magnet out and flip it (I won't do this haha) or just turn the whole pickup in the opposite direction...
