Subdecay Octasynth is another option.Without spending squillions, what's a good guitar synth pedal? I don't need an actual synth pedal, I just want one that sounds like an old square wave analog synth. The one in the GT-100 is good enough but this is for a different rig.
One admin responded, that's it. I'll have another think about what can be done.Any progress on this at all?
I've contacted the other mods. We'll have a discussion about it. This should have been done long ago, but I kept putting it off. Thanks for the message.It's not a dig at you or your fellow mod - it's more of an observation. Like I said - I'll respond to every thread that I think I can contribute towards and try and encourage dialogue. I know what you mean - people do lose interest, maybe it's worth having a couple more mods so that there is always someone around who will respond - empowering a couple of your regulars so that they are motivated to continue posting and might even bring in some others?
Just spit-balling here, that's all.
It's indeed very sad to see. The forum used to be so active. But I myself am not active any more and I am the moderator. If the users are not there critiquing then there isn't much one or two moderators can do. There is only so much effort one or two people can put in before they become distant and non-existent. Normally a replacement would be found, but the forum became too inactive and absent. And even if someone was found, it's only a matter of time before they too become tired of trying to keep things afloat on their own. The responsibility cannot be upon just one or two people. If the users are not there then neither are the moderators or admins.I'm new here and my observation is that nobody is responding. I'll stick it out for a couple of weeks, but what I want is the opportunity to talk to other people about about lyrics - not just the ones I post. The only way to encourage people is feedback itself...it doesn't even have to be detailed. I stopped after a few - I didn't want to spam the forum up, but it would be nice to see more than two responses per thread, if that - and a bit more frequency!
Are you talking about the forums or content on the front page?Ever since i first started using the website (and im sure since the websites genesis), it has been overrun by metal content. It seems that because metal fans have been using UG longer than any other genre, they seem to have the most control over the activity on the website. Perhaps make certain sections dedicated to other genres, the way Itunes front page isnt just 100% pop music. They do have the top Alt rock, top Metal, top everything on their front page. While i know metal would still be the top contribution with the most content, it would be nice to see other (equally deserving genres) get some air time as well. Considering the fans of it could possibly be there, but UG has been pandering to Metal fans this entire time while possibly not realizing there are other markets. The amount of people who go to UG, but skip everything on the front page is probably sizeable; although i dont have the number.
I'm not sure what you hope UG can do to improve this. If the user base is not there, certain fields of discussion will always be put into second or third position, and few innovations or improvements will be made. It's the nature of economics; even being compared to the idea of survival of the fittest. It's not that the Indie and Alternative music posted here isn't up to par; it's that guitar music discussion is often occupied by metal, classic rock and blues. These take center stage, not because they're better, but because they're more popular. To make a genre neutral website would be to have genre neutral members. That's not something we can control.Is there any way to get UG to be a genre neutral website? As a fan of alt rock and indie rock, it's quite sad seeing all the creativity put into those songs get brushed aside by all the excess of metal content. Metal isn't the only genre with groundbreaking and inventive music.
I'm not sure what multi-effects unit to go with these days either. I think you're better off with a modelling amp like the Yamaha THR10 if you want to simplify your setup. Or buy a low wattage tube amp and keep your pedals. That's what I'm going to be doing.Hi guys! Help an old friend out.
I'm thinking about downsizing my gear a lot, as I'm not playing as much as I used to. Moved into an appartement and can't really use my amp.
So I'm looking at selling most of my pedals and buying a decent multiFX. I've been out of the running so I have no idea what the go-to multiFX is at this point?
Also have no idea what kind of prices I have to look at when selling my pedals.
Stuff I want to sell is a Skreddy P19, Timmy (not the holy grail it used to be these times?) and a MFZ-1 clone by Jimmy Behan. Maybe also selling my El Capistan and MJM germ London fuzz, but still deciding.
If you want a good quality isolated unit, you do have to pay a premium. CIOKS offers a PSU that will power your pedals, but again, it's pricey. Remember, it's usually a one-off payment. They are 100% worth it. They're not 'fun', like pedals are, but they are necessary if you want silence, portability, and quality.Can anybody recommend a small isolated power supply I can use for the small pedalboard I'm building? I'll have about 5 pedals on it maximum including a tuner but the main concern is my EHX Cathedral Reverb which is an amazing pedal but it's so power hungry and therefore noisy. The obvious choice for me is a T Rex Fuel Tank Junior but they're just so expensive at £90.
Any good alternatives? If not I'll have to get one as you really do get what you pay for.
Best overdrive I've ever played. I've had my **** for over three years now, I bet. It's never left my board.And now, for something...well...not COMPLETELY different, but unusual: an overdrive pedal with a rude name
Perfect for P&W, right?
As said, you can't change people. They have to change in their own time.The shit thing is I know that and I know that she's potentially holding me back.
For example when I told her about my Victor Chang research stuff initially she got into a bad mood and was all jealous about it and made it all about her and how she feels worthless, instead of being proud/happy for me. I think she kind of realised that was shitty to do because when I got the scholarship she handled it better.
It's difficult because we do get on amazingly, but it's just her shitty depression that makes things hard. And it's kind of difficult to leave someone when they're clutching you, bawling their eyes out begging you not to leave them because they need you. Not saying that makes it okay, just adds another factor to the pot.
It doesn't sound like the relationship is going to last, to be honest. Wanting you around and then suddenly disappearing is a sign she is simply incapable of holding a relationship down and is using you. Not because she's a bad person but because she may not understand how selfless you have to be in order to make a relationship work.Pretty much, it's unfortunate I have to bear the brunt of it being the bf and watnot.
And now we're arguing because she and I were going to go to one of her high school friend's parties in July but she wants to all of a sudden go to NZ without me to go to some girls houseparty she met on livejournal.
i have a google alert for "bacon delivery service australia"
Jonathan is not that much fucking better. Do we really need another guitar company making Teles and Strats, especially with such a bad background—and foreground? I wouldn't touch Rogue Guitar Shop with a ten foot barge pole. "Oh, your pedal was not in stock. Tough. You can wait like you would wait if you bought directly. Oh, you want your money back. Tough. You can file a claim. Here, have 20% off. That'll tide you over until you inevitably come back because you'll believe us when we say we have a pedal in stock. And we can always offer a discount if it's not."Nope. Jonathan from Rogue Guitar Shop bought the brand. Kept Taylor (the con man) on for a while, then dumped him and rebranded Taylor McGrath as TMG Guitar Co.
Thanks, man.No, I just bought a pack for Black Ops again because my account apparently decided I didn't buy it 4 years ago. Still $15
I don't remember them ever going on sale
Although that may sometimes be the case, neither Gretsch nor Guild have had their mojo taken away. In fact, if Fender had not acquired Guild, we may not have the reissues that we have right now. Charvel have been successful, as have Jackson. Hamer guitars have fallen off the planet and Jackson isn't quite the prestigious name it used to be, but I think Fender have a good wrangle on their various non-original properties.Nah, Reverend is still an independently owned, Detroit-based guitar company. Fender hasn't acquired them...yet.
I hope they never do, TBH. Fender has a way of removing the character of the companies they buy, ESPECIALLY if they would compete with Fender's own products. Sometimes, the even shut them down, like Tacoma.
