Recording Direct Guitar without a pod or amp simulators

Ok. My setup is very basic. Generally I have been going straight in to my pedal chain through a slightly modded art tube mp preamp and then into a fotex digital 8 track. I am only recording guitars. No drums, no bass. I have a macbook that i can use to download freeware but have been having a hard t...

Re: Big Muff keeps killing signal.

Thanks for the response, While I know four pedals is more than many use, I don't think that four qualifies as "a shitload of pedals". This isn't really a tone issue as I know big muffs have a unique one. My volume decreases by almost half when I clic mine on. Do other Big Muff users experience this?

Big Muff keeps killing signal.

I just got a big muff and upon inserting it into my pedal chain I notice that it reduces the volume significantly when I activate it. I am running a tele through first a Boss overdrive(yellow one), Big Muff, Boss digital delay, Danelectro reverse delay. I have the level on both the Boss Overdrive an...

Re: Smells like indie spirit

"Indie" is in deed just just a troublesome of word now days as "grunge" or "alternative". There will always be labels that are troublesome. Psych-folk, free-folk, noise-rock, free-rock, subteranean metal, doom, avante rock are just a few of the labels that seem to be throne around in my parts these ...

Re: Need New Guitar Amp: brutha's recommend!

If you want a Vox sound the best thing to do would be to save for one. If you can't wait that long I would also look at Music Mans. I just bought a vintage Ampeg gemini II for $400 and love it. It isn't a vox and is only 30 watts but it can hold it's own in a live setting and is great for recording....

Expanding my mic palette

I have two 57's and two Octava 012's. I am in the market for another mic.(preferably just as affordable) If you could recommend one other mike to give me more range what would it be? I would like to have something for micing bass amps that would be good for other applications as well.

Re: objects thats make strange sounds for music concrete

I've always liked the sound of reverb tanks being banged around, glass breaking through a delay, any manipulated field recordings or found sounds.

Re: Recording onto Labtop?????

If your laptop has a mic input you can have a very basic recording setup for the cost of a 1/4 inch to 1/8 inch adaptor. You can download audacity for free and bam. Your multitracking.

Things that I have been listening to that are VERY interesting for the recordings alone include:Euphoria-A Gift from Euphoria-Two guys, recorded in L.A. and Nashville, composed orchestras morphing into bluegrass and then again into wierd psych and proto alt-country freakouts a la the Flying Burritto...

Re: Broken gear stories. How did it happen?How much did you

Once I was playing a show in an upstairs venue that had no elevator. I made the mistake of letting my drummer carry my twin up the stairs. The twin was new to me, a vintage blackface. The drummer decided to weel it up the handrail and boom! He dropped it breaking all 6L6's. The only amp at my dispos...

Re: I'm a fullsail student, bare with me

The best tip I can relay from my recording experiences is that if you make the most of what you have and experiment you can pull of some amazing things. I've heard records that I later found out were done on a four track that I swore sounded like they could have been done at Abbet Road or Electric A...
