Damn... any way to include his board but without being a voting option? For recognition at least.

I actually got my picks this week. Haven't gotten to try them cuz I've been busy with work. They seem like quality products but will take me some time to get used to them since they're thicker than what I normally use (.75 Dunlop Tortex).

OK, they've been notified, I'll PM back when I hear from them.

Let me know what you think of the picks. I think there are several mediums and a thin that would be around 1mm - 0.75mm (the clear ones).

The Ultra Lite Tradition picks are 0.8mm actually

Yeah, they're very thick, I think maybe it stems from the fact that V-Picks design some coin sized picks from Santana, etc. So probably nit much demand for $5 light picks. Try playing around and recording with the thicker ones, esp. blues leads and bass lines really stand out.

Got the Rat today! I had never tried one but was immediately surprised with the sound. No wonder they're so popular. I was surprised I liked it as much as my Dr. Scientist The Elements. It's incredibly easy to get a good sound of of it.

I remember there was one setting that I really liked, which was just a light touch of gain and a treble setting to far left at about 9 o'clock over tight bright crunch would give a nice flutey lead tone...its been a while for me since I played a RAT.
Glad everything worked out ok with the prizes, sorry we couldn't do out of States shipping so everyone could play for the grand prize.
Didn't get any responses on the n-Track software, I imagined some ppl would dig that, especially the Songtree jams built into it.

diabolical
The only DAW I had used previously was Reaper and the last time was about 6 years ago. I found it really easy to get a grip of n-Track. I dig the layout and navigating is pretty simple (unlike what I remember from back then and the one included with my Steinberg interface). Definitely very user friendly and don't feel like I'm in a constant battle with the software or having to look up tutorials. Haven't tried the songtree yet but it's a cool idea.
