Just kidding. I got 12 blackmachines.

...
.
.
No I didn't.

This was me earlier today.



Alright, let's do this quick fast and clean. I'm sure I'll have plenty of extra lols to type out tomorrow.

Here we go.

I got bant. It was sad. But then packages started arriving. I went from 6 am to midnight.

First this came.



It's a radial DI Box/Reamp kit. Looking back in time to when I was just a young noob...I should have gotten one of these things first. It's way to hard to turn knobs and play all at the same time. Sliders I could probably figure something out. Knobs...impossible.
Most interfaces actually have instrument level input/output impedance options now so boxes like these aren't strictly necessary. However, independent units like this are usually higher quality and quieter. The X-amp allows you to drive 2 amps at the same time as well as lift ground, reverse phase. The J48 has a pad and a frequency dampener. It also has both a direct out and a transformer isolated thru out. That means that by running a guitar into the J48 first it is possible to record a DI of the guitar and drive two amps at the same time. I think. I haven't tried it yet.



Apogee duet. Don't buy this. It sounds 1 million times better then my old interface. It's also only got one external control. Everything else has to be controlled through software. In a fit of genius Apogee doesn't support any sort of device aggregation with the duet or the ensemble. If you get this your stuck with it as your only core audio i/o source. Stupid. It's being upgraded soon. At least it's shiny.



ART MPA PRO. This pretty much the cheapest tube mic/channel strip on the market. I don't think it sounds bad. It's much better then the little ART I had. The signal chain goes input pre-compressor-eq. Its got 3 tubes. That's one more then a blackstar bt5.

Then I screwed around for like 8 hours doing stuff like this.





then my SLO came home from the shop.



I had my buddy relay the fx loop to a switch in the back so I can take the fx loop completely out of the circuit since real men run wet/dry/wet/sticky rigs. It makes a big big difference in the sound. It's a lot more articulate. I also had the depth knob installed. The SLO is a real bright circuit. It didn't handle my Bari very well but the depth knob fixed that.

Then I tried to make some scumbacks work with eminences.



not very successful. Eminences are loud. That's a Scumback XH75 with an efficiency of something like 101. Eminence Wizards completely overpower it.

After that I traveled in time to today and built my first fischer-price rack.



Racks are awesome. Because **** wood. That's a cheapo furman power conditioner at on top. Below that is a MOTU midi timepiece 8x8. 8 inputs. 8 outputs. I play Synth. You play Synth. We all play synth. Below that is my vocoder for my Kanye West cover band, the radials, next to the radials is a Studio Projects VTB1 tube mic preamp and below that is the ART MPA.

I also bought a Rode NT1A, a Studio Projects B1, Sennheisser e609 and I've got a Rode NTK on the way but I can't be arsed to take another picture right now.

Then Brett came over and played some Ratt for me.

Then, I played some country.

Then I went back in time to wire up my pedal board.

First, this thing is awesome



MXR/CAE MC403 power supply. It's pricey new but totally worth it. 8 9v outs, 2 adjustable 6-15v outs, 1 9vac for something I don't own yet but will, and 4 18dvdcs for tc electronics or line six big box pedals. Transformer Isolated. Everything single output.

Here's me giving Eric Johnson a heart attack.


Here's the other side of the pedal board.


Then I sold that and got all this stuff


Then I made this

Then I got a new cab.


Port City OS412. I love these Port Cities as much as Mclaw loves his Emperors. Mine came loaded with 4 Scumback H75s. 800 bucks. I swapped out 2 speakers for 2 M55s.

Then Matrixclaw came over and we played some KSE. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7394209/reamp5.mp3

Here's my other cab.



Here's the family.

You either have a really good job, won the lotto, or a very nice wifey who showers you with gifts.

OR, you could be living the hacker lifestyle, but with music. You spend as little amount of money as possible on living expenses, and then just pour you money into music equipment.

Or you have a looooooot of credit cards...

Happy NGD btw

If you guys wish really hard. I might open the box.


Quote by TheQuailman
That case looks a lot like my Fender CS case. But I guess there's another TA or something like that in there, isn't it?


I play synth. you play synth. we all play synth. I've watched that 400 times today.

Hey, the song's good. Much in the same way punching yourself in the balls to stop them itching is good. Sometimes scratching doesn't help.


And now show me what's in the case already, I got hustlin' to do.


EDIT: ^That neck joint looks veeeeeeery familiar.

You spent a lot of money acquiring the ability to get great sounding recordings. Now you just gotta find someone who can play guitar and you'll be on your way.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
