  1. I'm surprised no mention of Casio for black metal usage considering some of the bands are quite rudimentary in skills. Lol. Although, the new Casio CT-X series was said to have quite a powerful sound engine (AiX), I wonder what are some of the latest keyboards with powerful sound engines without costing over $1k? There should be more options now than a decade ago. I'm actually in the market for keyboards although I probably could use my old Roland GR-20 guitar synth pedal as a sound module to get the "black metal" keyboard sounds, it's just not the same thing as actually playing on an actual standalone keyboards. I'd assume the base Casio ct-x700 would have more than enough capabilities than its higher up versions (CT-X3000 and CT-X5000).
  2. If getting a pair of the Quilter cabs, could it work? These was said to pair well with the Quilter 101 mini head: https://www.quilterlabs.com/index.php/product/blockdock-10tc The Quilter appealed to me compared to other heads. Was looking at the DV Mark too, but all seems to be at 50 watts for this class, as if it's the magic number lol. I guess for small to midsized venues it's fine?
  3. I have no experience with Quilter but their 101 mini head is about half off today from musicians friend. Is it powerful enough? I think it's 100 watts clean but 50 watts when cranked I guess?
  4. Randall has this 8" cab, what you think of the specs? https://www.guitarcenter.com/Randall/RG8-35W-1x8-Guitar-Speaker-Cabinet.gc I'm also curious if one can use powered pa speakers instead of traditional amp/cab combo if using pedals with digital modeling amps? I don't want to complicate my self here with more gear. I do have a pair of Electro-Voice ZLX12P powered PA speakers already so would getting a "real" guitar amp/cab be out of the question for now? I actually don't even know why I had to buy the ISP Technologies Vector FS8 to begin with lol. I guess lack of knowledge for what I could use what for was the reason. I also have the peavey minimax bass amp and the Gallien-Krueger Neo 212 bass cab, which was mentioned that they could be used for guitar synth pedals as well.
  5. Could I actually record with 2 amps simultaneously using an AB/Y pedal rather than doing it one at a time? Also, this one from Morley is an AB/Y pedal and a summing mixer: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/ABYMix--morley-aby-mix-2-button-signal-combiner-pedal
  6. I see. I bought the FS8 because of its "full spectrum" or full range specs for my guitar synth (BOSS SY300). It was an impulsive buy lol. Must I mic this amp to record then? Could the mic no mo work using a powered pa speaker (Electro-Voice ZLX12P) or not?
  7. I see. So an AB/Y pedal is not processing any effect signal? I'm not sure which product it was that I read about that mentioned that it can turn on an effect or amp during chorus and can turn it off during verse. Sounded like it was an AB/Y pedal.
  8. My guitar amp is the ISP TECHNOLOGIES VECTOR FS8. It's a combo. My bass amp though is not a combo. I have the Peavey minimax bass amp and the Gallien-Kruger Neo 212 cab. I'm trying to record silently that's why I think I may have a use for the mic no mo. I actually wish they made this type of gear for everything including vocals lol so I don't need to make noise in my apartment.
  9. How is this: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/MicNoMo--friedman-mic-no-mo-passive-cabinet-simulator Any different from any passive DI box like The Director by Whirlwind?
  10. I'm not sure if the summing amp I speak of are even active. This one from Radial Engineering sure isn't: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/Mix21--radial-mix-21 From what I understand an AB/Y pedal allows 2 guitars to plug into a single amp, or 1 guitar into 2 amps (this might come across like it's similar to what a summing amp is then?).
  11. But are the distorted or overdriven tones from such amps considered "natural" and not from a built in effect in the amp? I'm assuming everything really is an effect, right? But for the sake of argument, let's just say without the assistance of external pedals. In my case, I have the Peavey Rage 258. Its got really good distortion even without the assistance of a distortion pedal, but this distortion I would think is nothing more than a built in effect that can be controlled by twisting the knobs, just not in pedal form. I'm also curious if using a solid state bass amp head (Peavey Minimax) to power up a cab "meant" for tube amps, say a Fender Bassbreaker, to use a guitar/synth with (BOSSY SY-300), could this setup work? Does a boost pedal like the Whirlwind "The Bomb" be of benefit, despite the setup isn't exactly 100% tube but more like a "hybrid" of sort lol.
  12. Which specific Quilter amp? All of them? including the one with 6" speakers or what?
  13. JHS Pedals Summing Amp https://www.musiciansfriend.com/amplifiers-effects/jhs-pedals-summing-amp/l51834000000000 Old Blood Noise Endeavors AB/Y Switcher Pedal https://www.musiciansfriend.com/amplifiers-effects/old-blood-noise-endeavors-ab-y-switcher-pedal/l53298000000000 An AB/Y switcher pedal could be a summing amp too like the JHS Pedal linked above, right?
