  1. Hi. My name is Matt, and I just wanted to share my new project: Brahma. I'm the writer, the tracking musician, I do the mixing as well as the mastering...also the visual art, lol...I'd love it if I didn't have to where so many hats because I think the project could be better off for it, and especially if I didn't have to master my own stuff...I think someone else could do a much better job, but it is what it is for right now. I'm just looking to get some constructive criticism at this early stage. I'll be starting on the 2nd album soon and I want to know what's working and what's not to make sure the next album is a cut above this one. Also, hit me up with some likes/follows/etc at the links below and I'll do the same for your project. Take care, and thanks for listening.

  2. Thanks RR. That's a relief to know! Any advice on brands or particular models I should be looking at for a replacement?
  3. Hey all, I'm looking for some advice on a new audio interface replacement. What I'm replacing: M-Audio ProFire 2626 My initial concern: Currently I record in 32 bit (float) / 48 kHz. Am I going to run into issues on my currently unfinished mixes if my replacement interface can only do 24 bit? I've never done a downward bit conversion like that on an active/unfinished project, and I am really scared of compromising what I've already spent a ton of time on. What I need out of an interface: I currently only use the interface for vocals, guitar (through FX pedal), and a bass guitar (DI). Vocals are the most important aspect of my music, so having a good sounding and clean/low noise preamp is a must. My computer set up (just in case that is important): i7 processor, 16gb RAM, Windows 10, Cubase Pro 8 DAW, KRK VXT6 monitors My budget: I probably want to keep this under $1000, but am not opposed to going over for something that would might be considered crucial. Lastly, I'm currently using an Audio Technica AT2020 mic for my vocals. If anyone has some recommendations for a mic upgrade as well as the interface, I'd love to hear it. I've heard good things about Rhodes, but not sure what to expect in terms of quality improvement. Anyways, that kind of sums it up. I searched for hours online yesterday to find a replacement, but quickly became lost in a sea of positive and negative reviews for every product under the sun, without any verifiable way to tell if one really was better than any other. Also, I'm not in a great position to get out and test or hear equipment. So, testing mics and/or interfaces before I buy isn't really an option...not ideal, I know, but that's the reality of the situation. Thanks for reading, and thanks ahead of time for any input. I greatly appreciate it!

  5. Sorry for the lapse in responding to this thread. I emailed KRK customer support about two months ago when my VXT4 had problems. Since it was out of warranty, all they could do was recommend me to the nearest KRK/Gibson support shop. The shop near me (Seattle), was going to charge me $100 just to look at it, without any guarantee they could fix it. So, if it was indeed repairable, there was bound to be parts and more labor on top of that...For $300 I could get a new replacement. So, fast forward to my KRK 10s subwoofer, and it all of sudden just up and went dead. It's also out of warranty, so I can only assume KRK will once again recommend me to the same repair shop, etc etc.... So yeah, I'm not quite sure what to do : / Thanks for the feedback thus far though. I appreciate it.
  6. I've had nothing but problems with my KRK brand monitors and accompanying 10s Subwoofer. I've had 1 monitor go out on my, and now my sub is failing too. Can anyone recommend a good subwoofer for under $400 for amateur home recording?
  7. cool, that makes sense. thanks pete, i'll try that out in about 2 hours.
  8. Hey, I am running an amp modeling pedal (specifically the BOSS GT-10) into the Effects Return of my amp head so that it bypasses the true preamp on my amp head. My question is, how much FX Loop level is appropriate? What's the difference between the FX Loop Level and just the Master Volume knob on my amp? Is there a sweet middle matching between these two levels?
  9. adam jones of tool incorporates some good effects into his repertoire. same with justin chancellor.
  10. justin has pretty good tone. i think that would be a +1 for the pedal. damn, i think i might pick one up and just make sure that guitar center has a good return policy so that I can test it out on my rig.
  11. so.......what you're really trying to say is...........it's good?
  12. hmmm, i guess there is no harm in buying one from guitar center, testing it out, and then returning it if it doesn't work out. that's a novel idea trying it on a vox effects pedal. i have a VoiceLive, i wonder how it would do on that. thanks for the input all.
  13. lol, i knew the first response i'd get was a wise-ass one i am looking for some serious answers and experience on this please.
  14. Hey all, I have been hearing a lot about this product: http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/BBE-Sonic-Stomp-Pedal?sku=157030 Here is a list of my current gear: Schecter C-1 Classic guitar Marshall JCM 900 100w tube amp (not the greatest I know) BOSS GT-10 (say what you want about digital pedals, but I have tweaked this thing into paradise and I can get some incredible tones from it) My question is, would this pedal actually do anything for me? Is it in essence just a parametric EQ? In which case, couldn't I just use my GT-10 to replicate the same thing? I am trying not to get caught up in the hype on this BBE product, and I want some non-biased answers on it. The kiddies from musiciansfriend review this thing in an orgasmic fashion.
  15. I own some pretty nice equipment so far (Shure SM 86, TC Helicon Voicelive), but I would like to add a flanger to my arsenal. Does anyone know of one that would work well with vocals? I want to make sure that I won't be feedbacking or anything like that. Thanks
