I'm trying to get an interesting sound from my bass (something which isn't a regular tone or distortion / overdrive). I've got a Boss ME50B but having tried to use the inbuilt synth effects, I find they sound pretty filthy.
Just wondering if anyone has used this board and mastered the synth sounds?
I'm looking for a tone which I can play over some clean piano and drums (sounds strange but I think there is a market for this sort of thing!!) - other ideas are welcome.
Relax. It's all about practice. Tapping your foot helps, however when I first started out I found using a metronome that you can change into a drum beat was easier to keep to. Look for a programme called Gearbox by line 6, that has a good metronome that you can personalise. Also try tapping out the beats to a song, that way you will be more used to hearing it. Hope this helps, bear in mind practice is everything, I know it's an old thing to say but it's true.
I have had a Line 6 UX2 for quite a while now and am loving it, however the only way I can hear what I am playing is by plugging in some speakers into the headphone jack of the UX2 itself. Do any of you know how to route the sound to the computers sound card so I can keep my speakers plugged into the computer rather than the UX2? I know I can route all sound through the UX2 but I want to buy a surround sound kit and have it all in one place.
I was watching Biffy Clyro last night in London and the lead singer announced "We are Biffy Clyro and this is our last song, you've been great". Now everyone knew that they hadn't played their best song and they were going to come back on for an encore.
Surely a band should play their full set, then if the crowd demand an encore they should play something spontaneous rather than having something planned for the encore.
I know there are few bands that don't play encores, like System Of A Down, they just played their set and walked off, and then you have the other extreme that will play 6 encores like Metallica.
I think it would be cool for a band to play their set, then if an encore was demanded then they should take a request from the crowd. What do you think? But now days an encore is almost 99% expected regardless of the bands performance and so the crowd won't go home until the rodies dismantle the bands gear!
Guitar Pro is a tabs program it's useful for people who aren't so great at timing and want to hear the notes as it plays it back to you. Apparently you can export the track as a MIDI file and hey presto you have your answer!
Once again Joe and I would like to thank you again for the Pits continuous support at our fortnightly shows - without you we are nothing! As we get such a large turnout from the pit we thought you would like to know the details of our next show:
