Thank you.

The G5's fans decided they need to full blast constantly (getting it fixed Monday) and I want to record today. I'm firing up the ol' TASCAM 414 this weekend and seeing what happens. I never would have thought about going back there until I read your post.

Thanks

I've got the AdrenaLinn. It's really a pretty "deep-dive' kind of a toy - lots of parameters to tweak, etc.. If I'm looking to not sound like I'm playing guitar, I usually pick this. It does arpeggios, etc. synced to a beat or time signature. Link that through a delay you can have all sorts of fun f...

Not that it probably matters to any one, but . . . :lol: I've got the resistors, caps, XLRs - pretty much all the surface mount stuff on the audio boards. It's getting a little late to try my first foray into point to point wiring so I'll wait until I'm stuffed with turkey tomorrow to finish the DI/...

Awright . . . so this is kind of freking me out. You and I are doing exactly the same thing. Totally new to kits, but I usually learn by jumping into the deep end of the pool. Ya know, the "ready, fire, aim " thing. I got the FET kit in August and it's been in the corner taunting me so I broke down ...

Re: A Christian Minister Speaks Out

To start off, and I've posted on this subject before. it saddens me to see the exposure and media time given to the pharisees - the "big name" scolds that create headlines and ratings for the talking heads on cable. I hate that they have this weird power base - individuals who want quick,easy answer...

Re: Thank God for Using that tsunami to kill all those homos

This guy picketed a church I attended while I lived downtown in Chicago. There was a similar outpouring of hate from this person because our church reached out to the large gay community that lived in the area. We did, you know, horrible things like offer counselling to AIDS sufferers. What really g...

The guy that did all the bowie songs in french was a nice touch. It was Portugese (for those of us interested in this type of anal retentive detail). BTW - what's up with all of the Bill Murray mid-life crisis flix (Rushmore, Lost in Translation, this one)? I mean this was a funny movie and all but...

Re: any english majors?

You know, it's funny. I just finished my yearly job review and one of my strengths was the ability to write and communicate. As someone with a tech job, having a strong background in english, literature, etc. has really given me a leg up. It wasn't my major but I think the courses I took in college,...

Re: war

Sounds like a paranoid drama queen I know...

What morons we all are. I have seen the n...

Re: Anyone here want to leave the country? (or lives in anot

Just got back from France and, contrary to the Big Lie being put out by our "leaders", it was beautiful. The people were completely hospitable, they seemed to have a much better understanding of Americans than most of my countrymen. Ms Cats is making me nuts wanting to relocate over there! The only ...

Re: Anyone ever tried this??

Be carefull...I did a bunch of what you're talking about when I first got PT, but I never do it anymore. Why? Because that kind of stuff usually clutters the mix, and if I want 2 guitar tracks, I'll track two passes. Agreed! The doubling in the 'puter just sounds kind of artificial (yeah, I know, d...
