  1. RedWire has awesome impulse responses. Have a look here [url="https://www.redwirez.com/bigbox.jsp"]https://www.redwirez.com/bigbox.jsp[/url] and search for "Bass cabinets". They are close to the bottom of the page. Ampeg SVT 810, Hartke 4.5XL, Aquilar DB115, Ampeg B15. They captured them using various microphones. I use Earthworks TC30, which does not add any additional colour. I practise the bass going into Reaper with a compressor and these cabs.
  2. [quote name='Kev' timestamp='1421524121' post='2662324'] Are there any videos/sounds samples of the MC pickups with the DFM floating around? [/quote] I have a bass with MC pickups and DFM. The preamp is very versatile, it does not have any 'signature' sound (like let's say my favorite Aguilar OBP-3). It can sound like anything what is out there. With all the preamp features, it is hard to learn and hard to master. At the end it makes you understand characteristics of classic sounds (P vs J bass, etc). But it takes quite a bit of time and patience to learn if being a guy who likes having just one knob In regards to MC pickups, they are very even sounding and responsive. In combination with stiff necks Alan makes, you get extremely fast attack and loooong sustain. It was a revelation point for me when put flats on Alan's bass. While they still sound like flats, they are not lazy due to mentioned fast attack. I am very happy with the bass.
  3. Thanks for a heads-up. Very informative video. That audio noise quite bothered me so I denoised it and it can be found here: https://vimeo.com/114529309
  4. How about to use your computer? If your bass has active electronics, you can more than likely plug in right into line-in of the onboard sound card and use some audio application to 'route' it into headphones.
  5. The bass can be seen in the Bass Gallery.
  6. [quote name='Wooks79' timestamp='1417641434' post='2622647'] Doug and Darkglass will always get my business. [/quote] Likewise. Spencer managed to raise my eyebrows about a year ago when he had some really unprofessional comments on talkbass.
  7. Glad you like it guys. I have been thinking adding a baby mode for two pitch harmony but I am not sure yet how to do that as the screen estate is quite limited.
  8. I just uploaded a version, which features two pitches harmony. It should show up in the market in around one or two hours. Let me know whether it works for you guys.
  9. Last time I checked, I couldn't type the infinite symbol on a keyboard comfortably
  10. I have an active bass so I plug in straight into line-in of my onboard sound card.
  11. I can create a Reaper project template for bass guitars if anyone wants to avoid initial learning curve of how to use Reaper.
  12. I use [url="http://www.reaper.fm"]Reaper[/url] with bass cabinets from [url="http://www.redwirez.com/bigbox.jsp"]RedWirez[/url]. I could not be happier. I used to use commercial VST plugins for tube emulation, etc. but at the end I realised I don't need them for practicing, they just distract. Also, Reaper comes with powerful EQ and compressors.
  13. Just a heads up. It has been a while but I resumed work on this app so there is going to be an update soon.

    DIY Effects

    [quote name='bartelby' timestamp='1413713645' post='2581036'] I have 2 questions to ask builders/designers. 1) my soldering iron died yesterday. I'm fed up of buying £10 - £15 soldering irons that die after about 6 months. Can anyone recommend me a good, reasonably priced temperature controllable one please. [/quote] I find cheap soldering irons / stations completely useless for me, but than again I solder those tiny components (surface mount components). This station is simply sublime: [url="http://uk.farnell.com/ersa/i-con-nano-uk/soldering-station-80w-uk-plug/dp/1740474"]http://uk.farnell.co...plug/dp/1740474[/url] I think that it can be had cheaper if you contact the main UK distributor. But it is an overkill for an occasional hobbyist. [quote name='bartelby' timestamp='1413713645' post='2581036'] 2) does anyone use schematic software? I'm looking for some that runs on Mac OS X. Any recommendations? [/quote] You can use Diptrace: [url="http://diptrace.com/"]http://diptrace.com/[/url] It is relatively simple to use comparing to others (like Eagle) and it still has advanced features if you need them.
  15. I might do my own 'kid painting' on it and see whether it sells quicker
