  1. D'oh. Too easy. Hopefully NOW I'll be able to remember that. Thanks for the reply 6mm.
  2. Lately I've been reading up on modes and while wanking I found that if you play an F Major scale with A as the root, you get a pretty cool sound. I've heard this scale in tons of movies, I'm sure. At first I thought I was playing one of the modes but F is not in the key of A major so it's not one of the 7 modes. What would you call this scale? A-A#-C-D-E-F-G Note: This is probably something really obvious but I don't know a ton of theory. Trying to learn though.
  3. I'm thinking this will be all over the board but it should be fun anyway.
  4. Originally posted by where02190 Another sleeper in the cheapo SDC category is the Samson CO2. Currently there is a special running on them a matched pair with shockmounts for $120 from any Samson retailer. I used them on violins, which I normally use SM81's, and they sounded every bit as good as 81's, and 1/4 the price. Hmm.. $60 mics sounding as good as $350 mics??? You've got my interest. How do they sound as drum overheads or room mics?
  5. Is anyone else amazed at the fantastic sound quality of the Oktava MK012 considering the price? I was using one as a drum overhead the other day and was blown away (so I bought another). This thing is like the SM57 of Small Diaphragm Condensers.
  6. Maybe it's just me.... I've owned a Pod 2.0 (twice) a Pod Pro, and now I own a Pod Xt Pro. Every time I try and record something with it, I'm uninspired by the tone, and I usually end up fiddling with it for 20 minutes before giving up and losing the inspirational moment. I am so ready to give up on digital modeling technology altogether for guitar tones. I keep buying these and holding on to the idea: i.e. that I can get huge guitar amp sounds out of a red box and record direct without ever bugging the neighbours. Perhaps I should just build that Iso-Cab I've been planning.....
  7. Ok I think I get it... there is a big difference between a "diatonic third" and a "major third" then. A major third is an interval, defined as 4 semitones up, and that's always true. A diatonic third describes an interval which is two notes up, within the notes of the diatonic scale. Is that correct? So then diatonic could be interpreted as "within the scale/key"?
  8. I was just reading a lesson about harmonizing guitar solos, and they were talking 'bout a "diatonic" third. I don't fully understand that term...can anyone explain it?
