  1. Bottom line..? Yes, it will work. It won't be as easy as, nor the quality of, an interface solution, but will work with Audacity, for instance, for getting your bass signal into your PC. A stop-gap solution. Hope this helps.
  2. Chest freezers, washing machines and gas cylinders will soon be issued with similar safety warnings. It's The Law. ...
  3. Not what one might call classic 'prog rock', but another approach to what to do with a bass guitar. Try listening to Jack Casady here, playing 'Live' ... Bless Its Pointed Little Head (Jefferson Airplane...) Here's the 'intro' track; it just gets betterer and betterer once launched, so give it a few moments while the pre-show b&w film ends (King Kong is being attacked by the airplanes at the top of the Empire State Building...).
  4. I've a buddy in the 'States that does vinyl graphics for my RC 'planes. I could PM his coordinates if that would be of any use to you..?
  5. Here is my contribution to the January 2020 Basschat Composition Challenge, inspired by a picture chosen by the previous winner: myself (conjointly with Lurksalot, who made the mistake of letting me choose the picture...)..! A rather free interpretation of a beat I've had in my head for years, inspired by a part of the Grateful Dead's 'That's It (For The Other One)'. Two Superior drum kits, a couple of Organic organs à la Keith Emerson, and a pair of nylon guitar samples tracks were mixed with Reaper, aided by some Cockos compression and Ozone mastering. A bit rough and ready, I admit, but I like the spontaneity that seems to come out of 'throwing things together'. Thanks for listening, if you already have; if you're about to, enjoy.
  6. If this is a 'one-off' situation, I'd suggest a 20th-fret bend. If the situation is recurring, find a bass with the scale length you favour and the number of frets you need.
  7. @cetera : If you do decide on couriering, be aware of this BC offer... Basschat offers exclusive discount for EU shipping ... ... which is also valuable for UK to UK shipping. I've used it (for France to UK...), and was very pleased with both the tariff and the service provided. Just sayin'; hope this helps.
  8. Much useful discussion here ... The D-Neck Issue ... I learned a lot, reading it.
  9. Just a word on Reaper 6... I've rolled back to Reaper 5, as I've had several 'crashes' with the '6' version. It wouldn't be so bad if there was an 'Autosave' feature, to at least get back something, but there's not, so all stuff done since most recent manual 'Save' is lost. The 'Still Evaluating' prompt doesn't bother me, as I'd pay once I'm happy with its performance, but, for now, I'm using my previous version. As and when new '6' versions are released, I'll try them. I'm fully satisfied with the '5' versions, though, which do all I want (and don't crash...). No common cause for the crashes that I can see; I'm just sketching out the start of the January Challenge, with nothing unusual (for me...) going on. Just sayin'.
  10. Orchestral, concert, basses, played by bowing mostly, have, I believe, typically a significantly higher 'action' than plucked basses. It doesn't sound that abnormal to me. In 1901, there was a little less rockabilly being played than nowadays.
