  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. 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?
  12. Let's say it's $600 vs. a $300 amp with 12" speakers. Can the 8" speaker compete with any 12" speaker?
  13. Has it ever been measured, its wattage? I'm curious because I play an electronic drum kit and have a 50 watt amp (Simmons DA50) and was curious if this 50 watt amp is actually not loud compared to an acoustic drums and if I should get the Simmons DA200 (200 watts) or the DA350 (350 watts). Most people have told me that a loud drummer usually doesn't need mic'ing their kit when playing at clubs...
  14. I'm not sure why some bands would list the gears they used for their recording (brand names, etc.). is this a good way to get in to the doors of a possible endorsement deal with the manufacturer of the gear they used? Is it usually free gear or other perks as well? I guess artists only get paid when they start modeling the gear in the ads, right?
