There are some good radio stations out there. I used to just get my music from Kerrang TV - and now I watch it and listen to it on their radio station and most of the time it's crap. In the UK (and various other countrys) we have Virgin radio and that plays some wicked music. Virgin play everything from Metallica to The Jam. We also have Planet rock which is quite cool.

Now days more and more "underground" music is hiting the radio which kinda makes it non-underground...
Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon is my fave album of all time.
I saw them exactly a week ago in London and they were pretty good. System of a down have been my fav band forever and I felt I had to go. They played their set really fast and I think they played every song on their album besides Kill eachother live forever which was upsetting. But I felt that even though songs are played faster live, they consistently went straight into the next song rather than crowd interaction.

Daron was seriously nuts but his band were really amazing. Really entertaining.
Old chili peppers stuff - awesome funkadelic stuff there!
Rage and System Of A Down - People don't really remember the video they did for Boom directed with Michael Moore amongst many other political active things they have done.
Good buskers play songs that people know but add their own touch. For example, there is an awesome bloke at London's Tottenham Court Road London underground station and he does a great cover of The Killers - Mr Brightside - He does it acoustic and just sings in harmony. He sometimes has a second singer who does the harmony ontop of his harmony. It sounds sweet and everyone loves him.
I was curious what a blender would do to my finger... I got a deep cut but it looks normall... I have no idea why...

tax is 17.5% isnt it?


That's Value Added Tax...
There is a set percentage you have to pay when it is coming into the UK and then when your not home to sign for it you have to go back and pay the handling fee wqhich is normally more...

HOWEVER! I think there is a loop hole... if you have "gift" written all over it I dont think there is a customs charge... check it out...

Dude I started to get interested in your first paragraph and then you totally through me. If your such a bad mother then go get some therapy and give the kid to her dad for a while...

You call Metallica a band?


opposed to a???
I would def kill 50 cent (I know he's not a musician) for Freddy! If I could I really would not hesitate!
All the above people are right im afraid - now just try work out a way of getting around this so you end up winning the argument with your dad.
The UX1 and 2 have the same amount of amps and effects because they are based on teh software. The only difference is the amount of inputs you get. The GX is smaller and has way fewer amps and effects models.

Personally I would go for the UX1 or 2 over the GX, and then it's down to how many inputs you need to use at once.

The UX2 also powers the mics incase you need your mic powered...
I swear by the toneport ux1 or 2

I remember you!


Why don't you get a UX1 and keep the extra money so you can get a better mic? Just my two cents. It's not like you're getting a whole bunch of extra inputs.

Been dabbling around a bit, will put up some settings soon.

Any ideas how to put it up fast instead of manually checking and typing it here?


I dont wanna get the UX1 because I wanna record a guitar and bass at the same time...
Look into the Line 6 Toneport series... They are amazing as they produce close to studio quality sounds and they come with a load of great amp models and effects.
I think this is a bloody good thread, but I havent got mine yet! I'm still thinking if I wanna get the UX2 over the UX1 - probably will end up with the UX2. Will keep you posted...
So I'm thinking of getting the UX2 over the UX1 - The only difference I can see is that the UX2 has 2 guitar/bass inputs. Now I can see a use of having 2 guitar inputs for recording 2 guitars at the same time, but is this possible? I read somewhere that you can only use one at a time... Say I wanna do guitar and bass at the same time? Is this possible?
Quote by Max-Roach
no becuase you suck. :P what with this?


This with what. Why?
Different styles and different roles... Maiden have lighter guitars than Metallica - plus most of the time you can hear the bass anyway...
If you get the sound you want then stick with it but it's not the correct practice. It's like driving - who looks in 5 mirrors BEFORE indicating once you have passed your test?
I could go for the ux1 but the ux2 has those extra inputs... it's kinda settled that im going for that one which im gonna import from the US because its £40 cheaper there.
You would think so wouldnt you but no one is responding there either. Thanks for your advice anyway. I'm probably going for the UX2 because I could probably do with the extra inputs.
I really want a Gibson Thunderbird in matt black, I've got the epi version now.
I have a choice of 3 preamps which I'm thinking about getting.

They are the Line 6 UX2 - $140, Line 6 GX - $50, or Line 6 UX1 - $90.

I have researched them and listed out their differences and the only differences I can find are the amount of inputs.

I plan to record Bass, Guitars, and vocals and plan to somehow get some computerised drums in there to. Some help with the drums?

Any suggestions?

Am I the only person who's noticed that the fine has halved? £120 in the title, down to £60 in all of the pointless rantings.


its 120 if you dont pay within 14 days. then 180 after that

I think thats a little unfair, that £50,000 12 mile per gallon luxury car has to get it's fuel from somewhere...


I would rather it go in your amp fund.
I've had a cup of tea and I'm a little more relaxed now. I'm going to try and see if they will let me off and when they decline I'm going to pay up the £60 and move on with life. I would just love to see that £60 go somewhere usful rather than to an MP's expenses budget.

SatNav's are stupid anyway...
They turn people like you into idiots, who would rather place their faith in a piece of technology than actually use their own eyes and actually have to think about what they're doing.
When you are driving, you should have to look out for all those things, I drive without SatNav and I'm willing to bet I could navigate my way quicker than you and be less likely to cause an accident because I'm actually thinking about where I'm going instead of blindly following.


I totally agree with you, most of the time they send you on the longest route possible. I was only experimenting and from now on im sticking to google maps!

Just changed first post because the focus has been taken away from the situation at hand. I'm not blaming tomtom - I made a amistake and im gettign fined a lot of money for something stupid! I jsut want that money to be spent on somethin decent!

It's not £60 for turning right though is it.

It's a £60 fine for driving without due care and attention, endangering others by driving the wrong way down a one way street.

So shut it.


it wasnt a one way street it was turnign right where busses are only allowed to turn right.
The government should allow us to feel safe on our streets by removing the shits that shouldnt be there. Get the homeless off the streets rather than spending my money on what I dont want it spent on. I want better schooling, nicer parks, more police, a better health system, anything!
"I'd suggest moving out of the city if you don't like driving round a complex system designed in part to make money. "

Thank you! That's exactly the point im trying to make! Designed to make money!

matt169: "In essence. We're all fcuked." - striaght to the point! exactly!

I contacted tomtom jsut for the hell of it - of course they say they are there as a guidence. Cocks.
