It sounds like you are dealing with a not totally rational individual. For sure, sometimes people get weird, and it's good to remember that there is often something else going on that may have nothing do with you, but is affecting his behavior. Regardless... I'd concentrate on getting your gear back...

I use whatever works that gets me to the end goal! It probably breaks down close to something like this: 60% impressionistic , psuedo visual, hippy poetry analogies: "the guitars should glow", "I want the drums to be aggressive", "this part needs more negative space..." etc... 20% musical style refe...

Is it possible that the extra wire is just an AC adaptor so he's not on battery power?

Looks like they're taking the headphone out maybe. Likely just a tape of ambiance/noise/pre-recorded stuff.

Whose setup is this?

It's got a setting that criticizes the mix you are sending through it.

Music goes in one side and Hits come out the other. Can you really put a price on that?

now lets put this silliness behind us and get back to talking about the gp/di.

gotta say that 'i'm the one' guitar tone is pretty damn convincing.
Yup. I'm excited particularly for the "gainier" tones.

I'm certainly not slagging on Jim or his perspective. I welcome it, even if I ultimately decide it doesn't apply to my situation. I will say that his first post was incredibly vague and it took some digging to connect how "I like my classic fenders that I bought for $150" was actually helpfully conn...

Hey Jim! I don't for a minute disrespect you, your knowledge, or your talent. I know that you have serious skills and experience earned over a long time of listening and tweaking. I think we're just gonna disagree on this, and that doesn't make me hate you. I know that I could learn how to mod all m...

To me it's not even a vintage vs. modern conversation. That implies that you are discussing the relative merits of two tools that do the same thing. It would he like saying "I heard that Metric Halo at AES and I wasn't impressed. I'll just keep using my A827 that I bought for $500 bucks..." Ok. Thos...

Total aside/thread hi-jack here, as I'm unlikely to fund/buy one of these in the near future (boutique amps will not make me sound any more like a guitar player, which is a fool's errand), but I just read through and wanted to say: 1) Great read; it's always cool when a designer/consultant/person i...

I heard them at NAMM and was not impressed. I still use my 1966 Fender Deluxe Reverb, (paid $160 for it used), and my pair of Fender Showman heads from 1965/1967. I paid $75 each for those. Yes, I'm one of those consultants that has designed commercial guitar and bass heads. I still prefer the clas...
