I would say no, or at least not exclusively; I have a Memory Man w/ passive true bybass that is silent and a black Russian Big Muff (non TBP) that is unusable live because of the pop.

This may explain a little. I imagine one of the many good pedal gurus out there would be able to fix this.

I'm surprised your Fulltone is doing this...

Yes; I own a music shop full of old crap I can't seem to unload...so now seems like a good time to rightfully call all of it "vintage".

You don't need software, just one steadfast rule: No rhyming pronouns at the end of a line.

Definitely try it. I just don't think it has the kind of quality components to really add anything special, but it could make a good back-up. No real character or 'tone'...but it's impressive for an early solid-state consumer device.

I have a 353d. It sounds good, almost zero noise. And you can record really hot, in the red so to speak.

In my opinion, I wouldn't say it adds anything - like any real thick analog goodness - but it tracks very faithful.

I would benefit from this seeing as I have a special oxygen free 14 "carrot" gold electric line running directly from my town's power generator provider into my home.

If computer processing advancements stay as consistent as they have since birth then it's safe to say 3GB is going to be like wristwatch memory in 10 to 15 years. So you can probably never have too much RAM.

I really like the RNC, and find that it can impart more "character" than it is often given credit for. Definitely a versatile box. AND, incredibly instructive for figuring out how to apply compression in general -- you can hear it doing exactly-what-a-compressor-does as you turn the knobs! (Which i...

I've heard this was a proposed tagline for the movie poster.
