He sold most of the rest of his stuff recently and replaced it with a Bogner ecstasy red pedal, and that TC delay with 4 stomp switches. I;m thinking maybe I should look for a blue box though, since I borrowed his and lost it like 5 years ago . . . . on a side note; I'm doing good. Mostly I'm in the recording forums these days, that's become my new obsession. I have a pretty nice studio setup, planning to open up for business in the near future.
  4. Hi everyone. I've been mostly absent from this forum since I got my board squared away a couple years ago, but I was hoping some of you more up to date folks could help me out. One of my good friends is turning 30 next week, and on top of the huge party being planned for him, I'd like to get him a little memento in pedal form. What's a good crazy pedal less than $100? Fuzz is pretty much up his alley, but I'd take any suggestions for something that's unique and fun to fool around with. Thanks for helping me out!

  6. I still use CD's for a couple reasons. For one thing, my iPod cable in my car is busted and I am too lazy to bring a soldering iron out there to fix it. Also, I do like the higher audio quality, so a lot of times I will rip a CD as full res AIFF or WAV files into itunes. Most of my music now comes from the thrift store that I work at. I take home almost every CD that comes in and rip it to my computer, then bring them back. I've discovered some pretty cool music this way. I do still buy CD's because they are cheaper to get used than they are on itunes a lot of the time, and once again, higher quality.

  8. Nice. Lacks mastering, but guess you know. Nice sounds and playing. Overall very well done. Thanks for recognizing that I'm lord over all If you want to interpret it that way, I guess that's cool.
  9. I'm in. You can now see a terrifying picture of me on the backers page.
  10. Geez, I've avoided this forum for months, and after only a few minutes I'm gonna end up spending at least $50 . . . Looks really cool though; I agree with the others that the "texture" label should go behind the critter's head.
  11. http://soundcloud.com/mlts9984/lord-over-all-1 Here's a song I wrote; Thankfully I had someone else to sing it for me. it's done in logic pro, I tracked everything on a focusrite saffire 40, most of the guitars were mic'ed, a few of the lead parts I redid direct with logic's amp sims. The vocals were done with an AKG 214ce into a focusrite voicemaster
  12. Please point me in the proper direction as to how to do this, because I have no trouble doing takes. haha Look for Christian artists; none of them know a decent guitarist; also I said money, not how much!
  13. The ability to fix stuff is amazing. You can certainly try to get great takes and that will make life easier at a certain point in the creative process, but it still comes at a cost. Here's some scenarios to consider: 1. Great takes requires either more time practicing it BEFORE you track, or MORE takes in the studio. If you can get perfect takes every time, you wouldn't be worrying about "should I buy Logic?" because you could make money playing music. 2. The ability to track without worry about perfect results lets you be creative, because you can record as you write; once my bandmates and I built our first studio, we could write songs WAY faster because we didn't have to polish and perfect them through jamming alone. 3. If you ever want to record any other people, it's nice to be able to fix their crappy takes, because chances are they aren't going to practice enough before they start recording, and they won't pay enough to do the takes to get it right. A couple nights ago I took a couple hours splicing together five vocal tracks to get one good track, but you know what? It was way less irritating than spending more time with that vocalist! Don't get me wrong, Logic has a learning curve, and it takes time to fix stuff, and to learn HOW to fix stuff. You can also really screw up good recordings by screwing around with all that stuff too. But it's nice that it's all there; because you never know when you are going to be mixing, and say "Crap! I thought we had a good take of that one part!" and it's nowhere to be found.
  14. Ryan Adams is the one that I say that I like, but Bryan Adams is definitely a guilty pleasure.
  15. The only really noteworthy song we did was "death in his grave" by John Mark McMillan. it's a pretty great song. JMM is probably the best Christian artist around, IMO. [video=youtube;UJDguHJ34SE]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJDguHJ34SE
