I've used Hot Rod Deluxes at Berklee for the last couple of years - the drive channel is, in fact, that bad.

I'd say it's really between the Ibanez and the LTD. Both of them have decent or better bridges (the Ibanez is better) but mediocre pickups (the LTD is slightly better but not much).

Okay, stop.

Your issue is not with the pickups.

You're using a ****ing Boss Metal Zone into what I can only assume is a Marshall MG. That's your issue right there.

Lots of people do. Pretty essential if you're using any kind of synth or triggering samples.

I work as an engineer, believe me when I say I'm pretty sure my mixes are better than yours. ;)

I see no point in paying for a low power dual core branded as an i7.


Also, I'd take the mac instead of the PC, because having used both, I have WAY fewer problems with OSX than I did with Windows....

LOL, get the mac. No question then. If you can find something with a quad core i7 then grab that.

You can't really upgrade the processor in laptops. They're almost always BGA (Ball Grid Array) - which means they're soldered to the motherboard.


Yeah, no. Garageband is decent at best for demos...

I'm gonna say get the 15" MBP. Only issue is a lot of software isn't working with OSX 10.10 yet (which is why I'm running 10.9.5).

At the same time, I would also advise finding a higher spec laptop....

I used to own a Metal Master. God, that pedal was a complete piece of ass. That, I think, is your problem, along with the MG.

Alder doesn't take dye particularly well - it's a pretty indistinctly grained wood so it doesn't look that great for it.

Most of the time, those guitar tones are:

Duo, the twin doesn't come in quad otherwise I'd have gotten that.

Any of the other interfaces I've had (Saffire Pro 40, Saffire 6 USB). It is better than the UX2's, though.

So I picked up an Apollo Twin.

Not noticing much difference at all in D/A conversion (haven't gotten a chance to use the A/D side yet).

The UAD plugins are just dandy though.
