  1. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    So (as my FS ad will tell you) I bought the wrong size switch tip for my Carvin. It's a shame, because it looks fucking sweet in chrome. The tip I bought is this one: Metal Chrome Toggle Switch Cap for Gibson Tip Knob - eBay (item 150453342192 end time May-04-11 17:02:14 PDT) The tip I need...
  2. Amps & Gear For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    I won this on eBay: Metal Chrome Toggle Switch Cap for Gibson Tip Knob - eBay (item 150453342192 end time May-04-11 17:02:14 PDT) But it's the wrong thread size for my Carvin, it's too big. If you can use it, uh, paypal me two bucks and it's yours.
  3. Music: Recording Studio
    Here's how to offload your VSTi's to a second machine for processing in Reaper with ReaMote. ...With an asterisk. :lol: First, fire up ReaMote on the slave. It'll list whatever you have installed. Obviously, you need to have the plugins you want to offload installed on both the master and...
  4. Music: Recording Studio
    This is a default Reaper setting that I wasn't aware of, and it make a big difference in drum tracks. DKFK/EZDrummer has a humanize option, but everything that I programmed in myself after the fact (any added hits, etc) would have the same velocity. The quick and dirty way to randomize all your...
  5. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    My MIDI controller has a big ol' wall wart, and my power conditioner is at the top of my rack space with the GMaj2 below it, so there isn't any space to plug in the FC. Enter these guys, $5 for a 3-pack at Wal-Mart. :yesway: Amazon.com: 3 Pack Short Cord, 8" 16/3 3PK SHORT CORD: Home...
  6. General Music Discussion
    Just came across this: Add MyBand as Tab on Your Profile or Band Page You can link your band's FB profile to your personal page as a "My Band" tab. Should provide a little more promo. :yesway:
  7. Computers, Electronics, Gaming & IT
    So you wanna stream content from your PC to your Xbox 360? Well, following the Microsoft method, and using Windows Media Player/Media Center, can be a pain in the dick! And it might not even work. :noway: It took me forever to get it working previously, and when I reformatted my computer last...
  8. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    What I mentioned in Samer's trem blocking thread reminded me of this little gem I used to use to reset my Floyd type trems after changes in string gauge/tuning. First off, have the strings on and roughly tensioned, then back right off on the claw screws. Next, stack a load of picks between...
  9. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Maybe you have different coloured pickguards you like to swap around, or one H-S-S and one S-S-S? CUt out the soldering, and get some of these. Put one on the output from the pickguard and one on a lead from your output (that'd probably be best on your control cavity rather than the jack cavity)...

    Step 1: unlock locknut and using bar, hold bridge in desired position. Step 2: lock down bridge with Tremol-no. Step 3: tune bridge. Step 4: unlock bridge and Tremol-no claw locks. Step 5: slowly adjust claw screws until guitar is back in tune. Step 6: lock everything back down, drink beer.
  11. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    i just thought of something neat... how to make something good come out of the floyd's tendancy to pull flat when bending notes with your left hand. i lowered my action a little by adjusting the 2 pivot posts - but i left a little height to be adjusted by the next step..... Since i love big...
