  1. One of my favorite parts of HC in the past was the gear recommendations. So what do people think is the best delay pedal for metal/rock? I currently have the carbon delay, which is nice. I also have an older Boss DD20 delay, which is more complicated, but nice in its own way.
  2. I joined around 15 years ago. Just started getting back into playing guitar as my interest comes in waves.
  3. I have something to add about your son's current attitude: When I was a teenager I struggled with depression and I was very angry. Unfortunately I took this anger out on my mother, since she was so involved in my life. I would ignore her, not talk to her, not tell her my day, even told her I "hated her" multiple times.. But then, thru counseling, treating my depression, and maturing, I realized it was not her that that was part of my problems and that I was just inflicting pain. The values that my parents raised with me came back in my twentys. I set out to help other people less fortunate and now I am a doctor training in family medicine. What I was taught as a child helped me choose a career path different from my classmates who valued money and lifestyle. I was one of the few who said "I want to help poor people" and REALLY meant it, and thats all because of my parents. I hope the same holds true for your son. I hope he realizes the error of his ways thru counseling and maturity and the life lessons you taught him when he was a child start to guide him in his adult life.
  4. How much for shipping? Is everything included?
  5. I am just afraid of buying used software online that uses an access code, what protects me from you giving me a product that is useless without the code?
  6. I have *HEAVY* radio station interference, any idea of this would help me reduce that?
  7. What does the SM-57 include =|
  8. People have brought up the concern to me that the peaked ceiling peaks at 6'6. My basement has a 6'11 height. I also have a guest room on my second floor. It is 14x7'10 with a 8'5 height. This room is carpeted and has finished walls and ceiling. It also has a closet. PROBLEM: I have a small table and a futon bed/couch in this room. So: Will the 6'6 height in the attic be a problem? Should I change my location to the guest room for its height? Or the basement for its size even though it has cement unfinished walls/floor?
  9. One of the workers at GIK acoustics suggested I close off the lower right corner into one closet, then split the large area into two rooms, one for practicing/mixing, the other for isolation booths.
  10. Im not sure I would pick the attic. There are going to be some strange modes with the odd shape of the room. Try them out. Play drums in both see if you get some strange echos also try acoustic guitar. I just think that roof will be really strange if you record up there but it may sound really neat I would experiment. Should have added what instruments I plan on recording/rehearsing with. Two guitars, a bass, and a drum machine. Lead vocals and background vocals. I am going to take my acoustic guitar up there though, see if there are echos as you said. One of the websites I read claim that you can loudly clap, then add foam, and repeat until the echos stop.
