Re: Effects pedals stuff, might interest guitarists.

...You’ve got room for one more! I've just solved that "problem". :doh: I've ordered a hand-made "Cocked WAH pedal. which (hopefully) does something like this, but for a lot less than £200+ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5Uvo4St_l0 Next you'll be telling me I am a bad influence...

Re: Some random thoughts

Unfortunately I haven’t found a way to subdue aggressive use of cymbals. Easy. Confiscate the drummer's cymbals :lol: :lol: :lol: (otherwise known as doing a Mowtown) What a wonderful idea! Unfortunately the "problem" drummer might notice. The problem I have with overuse of cymbals is tha...

Have you ever heard Bellowhead live? It is all about how loud it can be, at festivals anyway, sounds great from 1/4 mile away.

Re: Some random thoughts

Is there anyone who posts on here who hasn't heard music played live? Thought not. It's an oddity of our music oriented way of life that "live music" is often held up to the object of desire, with numerous marketing cliche's such as giving you the live experience. I can think of a number ...

Re: Effects pedals stuff, might interest guitarists.

Not the best pic in the world, it was just a quick snapshot using a tablet. I've got all of the pedals hooked up and velcroed to the steel pedalboard frame. The next job will be to integrate a couple of multi-way 9v power bricks and make all the pretty little lights come on. :lol: https://i.ibb.co/...

Re: Some random thoughts

I think the miked up solution wins out over soundboard albums because, apart from anything else, on a good recording you can "feel" the audience, which you don't get from a soundboard unless you've actually got extra mics set up to catch ambience. It's what lets a lot of soundboard bootle...

Re: Some random thoughts

Where do live albums fit into your thinking, regarding your first point, Geoff? Good question, if it was recorded from the desk, which takes some considerable skill I might add, then some of the processing that happens between the desk and the speakers will be lost. If additional mics are set up to...

Some random thoughts

Having commented on magic fuses and class D, amongst other things, here are some truly random thoughts. 1. What you hear at a concert, unless it is acoustic only, isn't Hi-Fi. Thus, when you play a recording by the band you aren't getting the "Live" experience you are getting a thoroughly ...
