  1. Music: Recording Studio
    ..and just the tip and only for a moment Picked up EZ Drummer and the Dark Matter EZX on sale. This is a whole new world for me so any advice/tips would be great. Trying to get a painless reaper workflow. I need to download the file to add the drum names to the virtual keyboard in reaper. I...

    Wow this is actually really cool!
  3. Music: Recording Studio
    Passing this along so maybe this will help others. Like many of you, I'm using Reaper for my DAW but it's metronome functionality is a little lacking in some ways. You can get more than quarter notes if you trick it using a single tap delay but what if you need something else? I wanted to...
  4. Music: Recording Studio
    At the advice of Iron1 I started this thread so we can have one spot where we contribute questions/answers/advice for programming drums. I figure the users on this board probably own the most commonly used programs so instead of making a thread for each brand, it can be consolidated here. I...
  5. Music: Recording Studio
    Do you know of any session vocalists with good vibrato, powerful mids and also insanely high range? Vocal type like Ralf Scheepers, Daniel Heiman, Kai Hansen etc etc. There's aboslutely no good vocalists in my area. And even if there's one or two, I have already had experience with them...
  6. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    We have one of the first dual recs made (serial 50 or under or something) that's available to use at the studio for LP3. I'm hoping we may be able to use it somewhere for layering (our sound is JCM800's at the core). It's been forever since I've plugged into a recto, and I know our NoVa crew...
  7. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So I've decided to cool off on buying amps for a while. I have sold my Triple rectifier leaving me with a modded marshall JTM45/100 it has a master volume, friedman FAT switch, and effects loop. I see videos all the time demonstrating pedals but my question is what do you set the head at...
  8. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Been messing around with the triple rec and I have two questions 1) when using a lot of gain and a D tuned guitar that open D sounds like Thunder but undefined. How do you fix that? Tried Maxon OD808 overdrive 0, tone 12, balance 12. 2) what do you do for a bright chimey clean? Is that...
  9. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I grabbed two OFR trem arm holder assemblies to replace the arm holders on my two lo-pro equipped guitars, because they're fucking awesome, but I can't get the damned things off. :lol: Did Ibanez change the way they install these things? Or am I doing something wrong? There was a fair amount of...
  10. Lifestyle, Health, Fitness & Food
    Joined a gym, that's right next to where I work, so am actually going. However I think my workout is a bit haphazard, doing 15 minutes cardio, and then generally doing weights for 30 minutes or so after that. Tried two tactics, one of 3x10 reps at a weight, and recently 4 reps going from 10 to...
  11. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So it seems people recommend 6666 for gain, low, mid, highs. Up to this point i have been fine with that as a generic high gain tone. But i would like more character to it. But i can't say i understand or can verbalize how the bright, crunch buttons shape the tone. Nor can i put into words...
  12. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hi everyone! Hope this is the right forum. Anyway, listening to the stuff i've been writing as of late (if anyone is interested in taking a listen for critique purposes: MaruMartinez | Free Listening on SoundCloud) i've noticed a lack of cohesiveness between what i'm playing on guitar and the...
  13. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    The GAS is serious for an olympic white reverse headstock strat at the moment. I found one on Reverb but some dickweed signed his name on the back of the headstock like a real asshole. Any tips on how to remove the Sharpie ink without completely ruining the headstock finish? Pics: Fuck...
  14. Music: Recording Studio
    Hey everyone! So i wasn't sure how to name this thread properly, or if it's been asked before... but what i am really curious about and wanted to know if anyone here had experimented with, is how to create that "muted" guitar distortion effect (i'm not sure how to describe it haha) that i've...
  15. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Hey everyone - So the strat I picked up came with a case. I was meeting with the guy at a gas station along I-35 and not only was it outdoors, but a bit breezy. So I didn't notice that the inside of the case smelled like Tommy Chong's asshole. I think the guy smoked... something. Any tips...
  16. Music: Recording Studio
    Hey everyone! :) I'm new to this forum, and thought i'd start off by posting a mix i finished a few days ago in the hopes of getting some feedback as how to improve! I promise to return the feedback/comments once i know what im doing so i can actually give solid critiques on someone else's...
  17. Music: Other Instruments
    This is my first nope cover, please don't critisize me for the nope, this was the only nope that I felt would be easy. I need some tips on what I may be doing wrong on my mid ranged nopes.
  18. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Been meaning to start a thread on this for some time, and finally got off my arse to do it! This is a bit of a difficult topic to pin down, but hopefully we can all provide a bit of insight and some tips that will help us when it comes to writing solos that'll maybe help if you're a bit stuck...
  19. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Both left, and right hand, for the record. I used to be able to run quick scales, sweeps, tremolo picking, etc. but I've spent so much of my last year of playing focusing on expressive/ legato techniques(vibrato, bends, pre bends, pre slides, slides, etc etc) that I have totally, and completely...
