  1. Thanks for the prompt on this Paul, I'm looking for something with 2 XLR inputs though, at this stage I think it's probably the Presonus I'll go for but the Behringer 204HD also looks interesting at this price point.
  2. @Silvia Bluejay I've not seen the overheating issues with my 600D but yes the files do stop at 4GB, usually somewhere between 15 and 20 minutes for 1080p. I'll watch out for any overheating! @skidder652003 interesting on the laws the differentiate between a stills vs video camera, especially given that some will use a 5D exclusively for video.
  3. Thanks HJ, that Presonus looks like it'll do the job - still blows my mind how cheap interfaces are these days, would have been looking at the sharp end of £300 for something similar 'back in the day'. I'm not looking for particularly high production values for this, so camera wise I was going to see how it turns out with a GoPro 8, alternatively I have a Canon 600D which is getting a bit long in the tooth but produces good 1080p video, and if it really comes down to it I can fairly easily get intermittent loan of a 5D - but I'm hoping either of the other options will have it covered.
  4. Thanks for pointing me in the direction of Reaper, looks good and the license is free at the moment! I'm basically hoping to be able to play bass over a backing track and record video at the same time, although thinking about it I guess the way to do it is to sync the audio to the video separately using any video editing software? I've really not thought about this much 😂
  5. It's been 12 years since I've done ANY home recording and I'm out of date when it comes to any knowledge of hardware or software so I'm hoping I can rack the brains of you knowledgeable lot... Appreciate this is is pretty broad, but I'm looking for the cheapest way to achieve a reasonable overdub/YouTube video setup. Assuming I have a bass, SansAmp DI and a suitable camera, what should I be looking at in terms of: 2 channel audio interface Software I can spend whatever's needed but I don't think I should NEED to spend a lot to achieve a reasonable result, after all this is fundamentally only for my own amusement. Cheers all.
  6. Bought a bass from Vin, super smooth and easy deal from start to finish. The bass was very well packaged and arrived safely and quickly! Absolute pleasure doing business with Vin, would not hesitate to recommend or buy from again. Cheers 👍

  8. Will bought a bass from me. Great guy to deal with, very straightforward sale, good coms throughout. Thoroughly recommended to deal with! Thanks for a straightforward sale mate!
  9. https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/uncool I stand by it 😉 A song can be absolutely banging AND deeply uncool at the same time.
  10. 2 deeply uncool songs that I cannot stop playing along to at the moment: You're The One That I Want Copacabana Feels good to get that off my chest.
  11. Yep, and tonight. We've not played for 3 weeks now, feels very strange when each cancelled booking passes. I think we're looking at the realistic prospect of not playing for at least 3 or 4 months... On the plus side there's been plenty of time to play my fingers raw to all the Dimitri From Paris mixes of Chic 😎
  12. The problem with the government's weak response to closing down public spaces, instead issuing advice for social distancing, is that it puts the financial and moral onus on individuals and private business - is it fair to demonise people who are tying to keep things ticking over because the alternative is almost certain financial ruin? It's a grim situation.
  13. Waking up to a string of cancelled and postponed gigs. Music is a second income for me and I'm expecting to take a big hit over the next few months, nothing compared to you full-time pros though - really feeling for you guys at the moment. The hospitality and arts industries are up sh*t creak.
  14. It's a strange situation where we find the public and private organisations taking the lead on the decisions to cancel events and mass gatherings ahead of any government advice. It's almost like they're just watching the swinging gate after the horse has bolted.
  15. Yes. Re: gig cancellations, at the moment we've not heard from the agency and aren't affected but we're fully expecting some cancellations from next weekend onward through April. It's inevitable.
  16. Crikey, I would have wanted at least double plus expenses. 😉
  17. Exactly, how much would Kiss (or any other big rock act) tickets be in ANY 250 capacity room? Anway, I'd be whizzed off if there were moving stages and pyro at a Snarky gig 😂
  18. If I were local I'd be all over this, great venue to see anyone. As a non-Londoner it's the logistics of it that's the bigger issue than the ticket price - once I've factored in taking an afternoon off work, getting up there, a few beers and food, the cost of the ticket isn't the issue, it's everything else that comes with it that makes it expensive and a real hassle. Still tempted though...
  19. I quite like the tune, it's not a banger but it's got a cool groove - I'd happy add it to my "Chill Background Music" playlist... It does sound incredibly generic though - to my ears the only stand out feature is the interesting guitar sound on the solo. I doubt this would get noticed if it didn't have Harry Styles' name on it.
  20. I'd tend to agree with this. You can view the seller's asking price as the opening bid if you like and you're welcome to make offers via PM. I can only see "auction" style listings getting messy on here.
  21. 21st June 2014, the last time we let our guitarist choose the set...
  22. Controversial, but I think Este Haim looks absolutely ridiculous when she pulls those faces. I saw her play live years ago before I knew who she was and thought she was taking the fosters before I realised it was just her thing.
