Re: Coronavirus Plans (what are yours?)

record rhythm tracks and bounced down to a single track on a 4 track, then sent the cassette to my friend to lay down whatever he wants. tape swapping, long may it continue, its been fun and creatively engaging.

Re: GS

yeah i avoid that place. it's mostly a pissing contest about gear, you can't record anything good unless you own the power station or something. The low End was usually decent with people talking about cheap gear and being reasonable. that was the only forum part i could get with.

Re: Tascam 688 -*With Animals*

just saw a mark sandman documentary clip on youtube, he's in his studio with a Tascam 688 and talks about how a lot of the stuff recorded on there made it to their records. super cool, it's the material not the medium.

Re: TOMB kinda slow lately?

no issues here. does your ISP throttle your speed due to usage? mine does not (Cox), so i've never had issues here. but if you have AT&T or something, and you're not used to being home all the time using Wifi, you could be at your threshold where they slow you down.

Re: Heritage sues Gibson

good, gibson under venture capital has turned into the d'bag in the music industry. suing everyone and their brother to try and fix the financial mess they got themselves in. Heritage makes better Gibsons than Gibson can. same factory, same employees, im rooting for them. Gibson can go do one.
