  1. My battle to get my bandmates on IEMs is starting to reach the end of the beginning. We have a Behringer X18 (I think that's its number) which has 6 programmable monitor feeds. I use the iPhone app; it is ok, but not exactly wonderful, either. I found that the mute button on my feed was, by default, on, and not easy to tap to switch off. Before now, I have had a DI out from my pedalboard to a mixer and a mic for the room. It worked, but it was long from good; but, finally, I could hear myself properly. But once we started to record rehearsals - also good for finding a new singer, which we are doing again - and once I got the XR18 set up properly, and once I got the damn mute switched off the Behringer app thing...wow! At last, all the instruments were clear and nicely piped into my ears. It was a glorious moment and one that reinvigorated my rehearsals. Of course, my reaction when it all suddenly started to work and sound good...well, let's just say it caused the others to realise that IEMs might be a good thing, after all. I must need to work on a bit of "if it is too loud, you're too old" line of thinking that is still left.
  2. Apologies if this seems silly...what is stopping someone else downloading the app and messing with the mixes when you’re playing live?
  3. I’m in Stockholm. Even though I have been here since 2002, I still struggle with Skånsk.
  4. Good God...is that what they’re saying? It’s one of those things that I have heard a million times but not really understood and never asked anyone. I got that it was a salutation, of course. Well...after a while. I just thought that the number of people called Måns was a lot higher than it was!
  5. Yup. Take yourself out of any kind of electrical circuit and avoid the problem. I did this after some rather painful shocks from microphones in a rehearsal studio years ago. I have been using a Line 6 G30 since and have been enjoying not being shocked and also the freedom of not having a cable tethering me.
  6. A jobbie that makes the output volume completely level, so when you stomp on various boxes, your level does not drastically change. I’d buy that in a heartbeat. I have tried with compressors, but to no avail If this already exists, let me know!
  7. Bought off here for a rather low sum, so passing it on for what I paid for it (I think!). Velcro on the bottom (spiky side) and the original box. Sounds grand but we are not getting on as well as I had hoped. I am keeping my Bearfoot for low-gain overdrive and I’m carrying on my search for something more brutal. NOTE PLEASE: I shall be able to post this at some point between Friday 12th July and Monday 15th when I am in the UK on a short trip, but not before or after. If nobody has nabbed this by end of play Wednesday 10th July, it will be withdrawn and I shall sell it locally (in Stockholm).
  8. The board looks like this: With the velcro attached. I can't be removing that and replacing it with the "right" side - it would never look decent. I'll just change the stuff on the pedals. Truth be told, the glue on the velcro on some of them is coming off anyway.
  9. The spiky side (the hook?) is factory-fitted on to the board.
  10. Thanks for the suggestion. This is the only way I can think of, but, like you said, it would likely be wobbly and not all that good. Time to bite the bullet, perhaps. The thing is...if I find this board too large and want to change down, I shall probably have to do it all over again!
  11. I have changed up from a Pedaltrain Metro 16 to a T-Rex Tone Trunk as I wanted something a bit larger. I was waiting for a Metro 24 to come up locally for sale, but then this Tone Trunk came up with the power supply at a low price and I snapped it up. However, the Tone Trunk comes with the spiky side of the velcro on it, and all nicely glued etc...a fitted velcro mat, if you will. Taking it off and changing it would be daft. So my only option is to change the velcro on the bottom of my pedals to the "hairy" side. [There was a thread about which side should be on pedals a while back...you can see which way I think!] So, ladies and gentlemen, before I start removing velcro from my pedals and putting on hairy velcro (if I even have any...), is there a better way to do it? A smarter way of reversing the velcro?
  12. Buy it. Take out all the electronics and replace them with expensive ones. Have it defretted. Then realise the true meaning of "don't need" and "can't play" with the added sting of it no longer being a bargain. That's what I would do!
