Woke up from everything now. It really sucks being small and have a low tolerance for everything. Heres the night:

Bar 1. Had 2 glasses of Mens Room Red (Beer by a local brewer for a local radio station) and a guy at the bar bought me 2 shots of Patrone. He bought one for my birthday then one cuz I could still remember my name. We BSed about music and shit. Probably going to go back there tonight for New Years

Bar 2 was a Mexican Restaurant. Met 2 girls there. One was 40, the other was 25. I was trying to put some moves on the 25 year old but I think the 40 year old was more into me. I puked in the bathroom after another beer and 3 shots. The older girl said her Uncle Roy could get us a room comped at the nearby casino.

So we went to the casino without them. We got there and they found us. Nothing better than having 2 girls walk up and start grinding on you while your ex watches. But her boyfriend wasn't too happy about it. But he got thrown out of the casino for being too drunk. I spent $40 on Blackjack, went up $50 then lost it all. Then I got $40 more and lost it all. Then my exs mom who was DDing for the night took my debit card so I didn't go through the rest of my money.

Then we all went back to the house, I had another beer and 4 or 5 more shots before puking then passing out. Thats pretty much most of the major details. But now I'm gonna be running around the casino trying to find Uncle Roy

Nice

On my 21st I had like 8 giant shots of who knows what (my friend is a bar tender and he went with me and some friends to this place and kept ordering me weird drinks that were supposedly gonna get me hammered), a Jagerbomb and 3 beers and I didn't even have a hangover the next day lmao. Didn't even throw up.

Guess I hold my alcohol pretty well



P.S. Think I might get this for my next interface:



We'll see!

LOL... Happy birthday, Lockwolf.

Tip: go for the 40-year old.

Girls are really unbalanced until they're about 30.

At 40, they've mostly lost all of their hang-ups, they know who they are and what they want and how to get it, they're experienced, confident and are still at their sexual peak.

Actually, I had a couple cougars hit on me at the bar on New Years. I don't know if I wanna sleep with someone when they say "OMG! You remind me of my son!"

Couldn't bother making a new thread, so I thought I'd ask here. I'm about to get a new recording set up for guitar. I have some (but quite little) experience on recording. I used to have a Fast Track Ultra + SM57 set up, but sold it. Now getting a new one. Not gonna say all of my gear but my amp is a 6505+ through a 212.

Which one would suit better for me (home use)?

-Focusrite Saffire 6 USB + SM57
-POD HD500

I'm pretty much leaning towards the POD but there are no on the used market atm, and I just saw a focusrite saffire for 120e

So which one would suit me better?

Thanks!
-Jonathan

Given that you actually have a pretty great amp (particularly if you're looking to record metal), so as long as the 2x12 you play it through isn't a weak link in the chain I would be tempted to encourage you to persevere with the purist method of sticking a '57 in the right place in front of a good valve amp.

The POD might be a popular choice these days, and a bit more convenient if you're just looking to quickly get ideas down then mess with the sound after tracking, but it does limit your options if you plan to expand into recording other instruments in the future - the Focusrite has some great preamps for the price and as long as you put the effort into practising mic placement and how to find the tone you want, you could get some amazing results with that setup.

can you take an aux cable and put a big jack bit on one end and plug it into your guitar and then the other into your computer and record good quality stuff? and if so what software should i record it with. I was thinking of downloading audacity and trying that out but mainly i wanted to know about the cable deal, am i going to have to buy some special cable, i just want it to be something of somewhat good quality, this is just for playback means and building on riffs and stuff??? oh and for effects i was going to run a distortion pedal through the cable would this cause any problems?

It will work, sure. But it'll likely sound horrid

Might as well give it a shot, though. You'll only be out a few bucks if it sucks.



Download Reaper. Audacity is for nubs










P.S. Debating selling my Herbert and going with an Axe-FX II rig, since I rarely use the Herbert and would get more use out of the Axe-FX most likely, especially since I'm probably going to be playing bass for a band now, and I could use the Axe for recording and as a preamp for guitar AND bass. With a good solid state power amp, I could use one side in mono for guitar, and bridge it for bass through a different cab for more wattage. All I'd need to buy is a decent bass cab.

I use my 5150 much more than my Herbert, and having played it the past few days, after not playing it for a few weeks, I'm not digging the tones I'm getting out of it as much as I was before. I think I'm just moving towards less of a "huge" sound and more of a "crisp" sound. The Axe-FX Ultras I had before we always great at getting a super clear sound, they just sounded too artificial for me to want to spend that kind of cash on them. The Axe II clips I've heard so far are quite convincing.

What say you?

Anyone tried the Axe II who can tell me how much better it is over an Ultra? I already ordered an Axe II for myself, which I'll most likely sell for a big profit, but if it's worth it, I might keep it, or order a second and sell one of them.

I'm a purist, so would find it quite hard to use any model of AxeFX live, mainly because I love my H&K too much but also because I would just be concerned about how it 'felt' more than how it sounded... I have never had the same feeling plugging into an amp sim or modeller clean gain-wise as opposed to plugging into a valve amp - maybe the modeller having a decent poweramp section would alter that, but I find I get more and more 'clean' gain the harder I push the power amp (even at lower-moderate levels) on a valve amp compared to when I've gone DI into an amp sim or straight into a modelling amp (Line6 Spider II ).



On a side note: I've just been emailed again by a bloody Sweetwater rep, thanking me for my business last year and telling me to keep my eyes peeled for any offers, as well as asking if there's anything he can help me with... seriously, Americans, your sales reps are too f***ing persistent!! I bought one thing, in a sale, as I could download it - can't buy most things Sweetwater sell because they don't ship most physical objects to the UK. The rep knows this, so why keep bothering me when I've ignored him since the verification of my ID as a british citizen to let me buy the one thing I bought.

UK sales reps aren't such irritating buttmunchers, and I would have thought US shoppers would be even easier wound up buy this sort of thing. Is it just Sweetwater employing overexcitable morons or is it a US thing that us Brits (luckily) don't have?

I'm not too bothered about the "feel" of the amp, as much as I'm concerned with the model having the weird hollow mid range I hear in nearly every recording of the Standard/Ultra. The new version seems to have addressed this, as it's much more convincing, but I know with the Ultras I had, I was left less than impressed after playing with them for hours. The effects in those things are AWESOME, but at the same time, I don't feel like I'd use half of them, and in order to get a nice sounding amp rig out of it, you had to do a ton of tweaking, which was ridiculous on that tiny screen. The fact that it doesn't have a low/mid/high adjustment on the front, and you have to go in the editor and manually edit each one kind of bugs me, since changing settings on the fly is next to impossible. However, a big plus side to that as well, is that it's very difficult for people to mess with your settings once you've found a sound you like, and the sound is the "same" going into the board every time, as long as you're running straight out of the Axe to it. This should allow the engineer to get a better sound live, because for one - They don't have to deal with trying to mic your cab correctly, and for two, they're getting a direct signal, how you intended it to sound - They can dial in a bit of EQ to make it work for their sound system, but theoretically, it should be much easier for them to work with.

Alls I know is that I went to see Periphery a few months ago when my friend's band was opening for them and every band, but Periphery, was using 5150s, Dual Rectos, Roadsters, XXXs, etc. and their tone sounded so cluttered live, you could barely distinguish a lot of the notes. When Periphery came on, they have THREE guitarists, and the tone from them was easily the cleanest and polished of all the bands that played that night. I still think that The Human Abstract put on the best show that night, but there was no dismissing that Periphery was about 982739487289347 times easier to hear all the instruments.

I'm kind of debating that, when I get the Axe, maybe I'll just put it and my Diezel up for sale, and whichever sells first, I'll keep the other

How weird. I've bought things from Sweetwater several times, and the only time I've been contacted by the sales rep, was after I got the item and he followed up to make sure I was enjoying it. Sweetwater has always been the easiest, and best customer service to deal with, from any store I've bought from, bar-none.

You'd like my amp then - 4 channel all-valve, with digital effects, but the channel switching is ran off a MIDI board (included with amp), and because all the pots on the front are programmable, you effectively get a 128-channel (32 banks of 4 channels' settings) all-valve amp, meaning you can save presets for each song in your set if you need, or in my case have different presets for different guitars to try and get the tone the same even if you switch to a backup guitar, and noone can change the settings without saving over them (which is also only possible if you have the board plugged in and on a patch you need, then someone messes with the controls and holds store for a few secs... not an easy mistake to make!

And the Coreblade (building on my amp) has additional effects but more importantly can store it's settings on a USB stick and plug into any Coreblade and give you your presets (meaning you can hire out gear if touring another country and get your sound still).

Yeah, I'm guessing it's 'cos I'm a Brit and the guy had to contact me in the first place to make sure everything was legit Still annoying me though
