  1. Humbuckers without rings just look cheap. (Hey, we can save about 17c in production cost per unit if we leave these off!) Humbuckers on a strat look terrible. (Ain't no strat no more, sonny!) But humbuckers with rings on a strat is just sacrilege. (Iron Maiden. Says it all, really.)
  2. He'd be using modeling amps, modeling guitars, digital effects, MIDI, Floyd Roses, self-tuning robot guitars, and every other bit of innovative musical technology that cranky Hendrix traditionalists have been complaining about for the last 40 years. And he'd be on Twitter. As much as i like Hendrix, no. He'd be doing the exact same thing as his comtemporaries, namely playing the same notes over and over until the cows went home from being bored to death. And his tweets would be written by his record labels marketing people.
  3. Can't say anything specific about that exact amp - but as a general rule one should not disregard Marshall SS amps from the 80's. They can actually sound very good indeed - not the same as a big tube Marshall at gig volume, no - but they can certainly be nice sounding practice amps, and some are very good at what they do. Personally i have a "Marshall 75 reverb" which is an all SS channelswitcher with a celestion "Sidewinder" speaker in it. Not quite a tube amp, but it definitely gets a Marshall vibe going. And it could easily do a good Marshall impression at an impromptu jam...
  4. seriously? you guys are debating toilet seats? Well, taking the piss is serious matter...
  5. Apparently you didn't watch this. You might want to change your mind about the seat Ermmm, are you scared that the bacteria from the bowl will jump at you at every possible opportunity they get? Or are you talking about sitting down to piss? What are you trying to say with that link? Come on, it is simple - you and your buddies have a few beers/sodas/hard liquor/whatever (no decaf lattes, though) in your man cave and need to take a piss. This pisstaking is much facilitated by not having to think about the goddamn toilet seat. In a man cave at least you should be able to not have to be concerned about that?
  6. Looks pretty sweet. I'm about to setup my music room and was debating hanging the guitars on the wall. You've made it look pretty badass with staggering them high and low and then having the art there. Not a big fan of the pool table in the middle of the room, but if that's your thing, then that's awesome. Anyway, props to you for the hard work. Whatever. I always kept the lid down so my dog wouldn't drink out of the toilet. And, it wasn't because I was concerned about the level of chlorine in the water from the bowl cleaner. It was because I didn't want to step in a puddle of toilet drool water in the morning when I was half asleep. Fair reason, and since it appears that your dog was not small enough to drown in the toilet whilst drinking from it, we can assume it was a man's dog, right?
  7. Or maybe he didn't want to take a pic where you can see the inside of his toilet? Come on - it is a toilet. In a man cave. The seat is supposed to be up.
  8. bathroom Mancave? I am sorry, but as long as that toilet seat is down when not in use you are officially pussywhipped.
  9. Yeah, I agree on that one. After hearing a particular demo of EX8000 + MKS70, I was very surprised what it could do. They are perfect partners. The EX's rolling dark pads contrast beautifuly with the MKS's silky strings. Im wondering if the DWs will be added to the Legacy Edition at some point. I can't imagine that they can replicate that synth digitally. Or at least not any more than they have recreated their other analogues - the filter (or whatever in the design it is) does so much for the sound that sonically the digital aspect of this synth is comparatively small. I find these sounds Absolutely random non musical joystick manipulation of DW8000 and Filter sweeps demonstrate nicely what i mean. At least i would not necessarily describe these as digital sounding at all
  10. ...DW-8000 are the three of the worst sounding polys I've ever heard. I am shocked. Personally i find the 8000 to be surprisingly fat and analogue (
  11. Remember though, the RS7000 uses Yamaha lingo. ..... So you could easily have 4/4, 15/16,7/4,and 2/4 at varying lengths and at variable clock divisor ratio's all playing simultaneously in a single section in any given style at the same time. I just skipped the Yamaha lingo But thx for the confirmation.
  12. Yamaha RM1x and RS7000 can do any meter you want. Within reasonable limits. Apparently per track too, so you could (if you were so inclined) have several different meters running simultaneously.
  13. I'm going to be moving into an apartment in a couple of months and I don't think my neighbours would appreciate me blasting my 50 watt head . They probably won't appreciate you blasting a jack hammer at a distance of 1 m ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sound_pressure ) or being next door neighbours to a disco ( http://www.sengpielaudio.com/TableOfSoundPressureLevels.htm ) which is what one watt would give when played through a resonably efficient speaker.

  15. Thank you, America! Once again, the world outside is watching you to learn what can be done and how. It is?
  16. If you call voting "the force", what are you planning to do to take away my right to vote? Nothing? I thought so. I guess voting is more powerful than I thought, isn't it? You are rambling now. You're saying there's proof that an unborn is not a human being? Nowhere did i speak of proof. Only that abortion is unlike murder because there actually are different views of it. LOL That's like asking me to answer in court for my mom or my sister - no law requires that. Just because God is my Father, it doesn't mean I'm him. He can answer the question himself, when he pleases, and whichever way he pleases. Hint: he promised to show himself to anyone who seeks him with their whole heart. That's how I met him. Have you never ever in a discussion asked an atheist to prove that there is no god? And if you haven't - have you ever noticed that other christians do ask atheists that ridiculous question (especially in these stupid internet debates)? As for your meeting god, fair enough - water to wine, parting seas, resurrections... i guess it goes with the religion
  17. You're the one who doesn't get it. First of all, you cannot punish someone for an imaginary crime. In the same way, you cannot tell me I deserve punishment for something I'd do if supposedly I could despite me saying the only thing I'm doing is voting and I'm not making anyone do anything because of some mythical Force. This isn't Star Wars Where have i ever talked about punishment? And force is not an abstract phenomenon - a very common use of force is jailing people. Looks like you already condemned me for blowing up imaginary abortion clinics and stuff, why not condemn me to the death penalty already? I don't think i thave condemned you - however, i do not hide that fact that i do not like religious people that want to force (yes, that word again) me to live according to their beliefs. I don't interpret it, I believe in it. You talk about the rights of the mother, I talk about the rights of the other human being involved. IF there is in fact another human, and FYI that is not an universally accepted fact, but rather you expressing your beliefs. I'll let God do that, thanks. No, YOU do it. In these religious dicussions most of you christians always ask atheists to prove that there is no god, now i am asking you to prove that there are not many gods. I mean, if there is one, why not many? Could the Hindus be right?
  18. Am I not doing that? You equate expressing my view with imposing it. Not very smart. Actually, you would impose your views upon your fellow americans if you could. That is why you get the sort of responses you see here. Why don't you get it? None of the pro-choice people would force your wife to have an abortion. But you want to take their wives right to have one away from then. Simply based on how you interprete an almost 2000 year old book. ... And BTW, there isn't just one god There are many, ask the Hindus. Or disprove them
  19. Isn't that an Obama campaign promise anyway? To take away any form of disencouragement for abortion in the form of pre-counseling and notification of parents by teenagers, among many other things? Looks like I'll have to live with it, won't it? I asked you a perfectly simple (albeit hypothetic) question. Would you call it democracy if a liberal majority through legislation forced your wife to have abortions? And yes, you have to live with the fact that other people think differently than you do and that other people have the right to act according to their own conscience. But they don't force you to live that way. ...i know, that is a hard concept to grasp but there are actually people out there that don't mind that others have beliefs that differ from their own.
  20. I'm not forcing anything. I'm voting. If I'm a minority as you say, then why do you fear me? As long as I'm a minority, you have absolutely nothing to worry about. But if I'm in the majority, then democracy takes its course. Do you agree with democracy? Yes? Or do you only want your opinion to be heard and not that of others? You seem to equate democracy with majority rule. But how would you feel if the liberal congress suddenly decided to force abortions unto you christians? Would you still think that that would be a democratic decision?
  21. that is one of the big reasons why some people are very scared of us Transhumanists- we actually intend to be able to DIRECTLY and PHYSICALLY change your mind in a decade or two we are tired of of hateful fearful humans runing around opressing and killing each other- so we will fix the problem at it's source- after we release the nanocloud and you breathe in the limbic upgrades- you will finally understand where we technoshamanic progressives are coming from- whether you want to or not Can i have some of your acid please? The stuff we get here isn't nearly as powerful....
  22. No... you're forcing your opinion on the aborted babies. 50 million of them by now, just in America. Read carefully. Your argument is that you consider abortion murder, and therefore want it outlawed. Fine. Murder is bad. Everyone here will agree with me that killing another person willfully is in fact murder and is bad and should be outlawed and punished. And i'd wager that that goes for all cultures on earth, even though homicide might be "legitimate" in certain cultures under certain circumstances. There really is no argument as to whether a murder is a murder - sometimes you can find borderline cases (self defense etc.), but i am sure that the world otherwise agrees on the fact that murder is what it is, and is considered bad. No discussion, then. The fact that a LOT of people seem to think that abortion is actually NOT murder might indicate that your personal stance on it is not universally accepted to be true (as it would be the case with homicide). So why do you believe that you have the right to FORCE your beliefs unto others through legislation? As it is now, you are free to mourn the 50 million foetuses and pray for their (and their parents) souls and impregnate your woman all you want - no one is interfering with that. But your wish is to impose your beliefs on the actions of others, where these actions are NOT universally accepted to be wrong. Oh, and since you don't seem to understand the concept of force: If i had my way (which i fortunately for this planet don't have) i would legislate that every self confessed christian woman should have a forced abortion for every two pregnancies. That, my phine pheathered phriend is force. When someone else dictates what you can, and cannot do with your life.
  23. Wouldn't hindus have a good case in asking christians/muslims/jews how they can prove that there is only one god?
  24. And by the way, that comment was not to be taken literally (as evidenced by the presence of a smiley ). It was like "GTFO, go lie dead somewhere". The fact that you think it was literal and had to make such a strong statement, on the other hand, is kind of troubling to me. You can thank your many christian brothers (not sisters - for there are no sisters on the amp forum) for making at least me think that it was meant literally. Rarely have i seen such a large group of paranoid people trying to portray themselves as being an oppressed minority whose very right to exist is threatened by every opinion that is not exactly theirs. ... quite a bit like the more rabid republicans amongst you. hey...
  25. I didn't say it did. Selfpwned ... i read too little and concluded too fast ... i wonder how i came to that meaning of your sentence. Anyway, happy election day tomorrow, and may the schwartz be with you... or something...
