  1. I agree with Billy Corgan, the colour of the instrument changes the sound of the instrument. Well played stew -- it looks and sounds fab !! 💟
  2. Yeah I know that feeling only too well (not with our drummer I hasten to add, it's usually the 6 stringers counting with their five fingers that fecks it up) 😖
  3. Yeah I would, can't see why your drummer is having a problem with it !
  4. Just listened a few times and you are spot on - two bar break and then everything comes back on the beat.
  5. You know the second part of the solo is the first part reversed by studio trickery ? Not that helps with your question 😃
  6. It is SQUIER Jesus Christ !!!!! how many more times ????
  7. Didn't Jaco Pastorius do this when he played a fretted bass?
  8. I jumped in at the deep end, trying to lower the action on an Ibanez piezo equipped guitar and achieved fantastic results, even with my somewhat rudimentary skills. The fantastic results were achieved by carefully filing the bottom of the saddle, refitting it, filing a bit more until the action was spot on. So pleased with myself until it was plugged in - disaster. The volume from the strings was now completely unmatched. I'd turned a decent enough guitar into a dog's dinner. I glued a strip of fine sandpaper to a spare bathroom tile and then gently resanded the underneath of the plastic saddle, checking the result against the untouched still glazed part of the tile, to ensure that the saddle would now be completely flat. Put it back in the slot in the bridge and now the volume was even across all the strings. A kind of good result I suppose, more by luck than judgement, the surface contact and pressure between the saddle and piezo pickup is so crucial. Glad yours worked out Stewblack and like you say we're all learning
  9. Thanks Andy I have zero knowledge of retail "3. The big brands need to shift units...so go with the big chains with ridiculous dealership demands. I think the last buy in for a Gibson dealership was £35k. Small chains cannot do this." How does the buy in for a dealership work ?
  10. Mr Al Krow My post started off as a jokey response to your idea that a retailer would swap out pickups at no expense to himself The scenario was that of a kid in a sweetshop which in my tired and emotional state I neglected to mention. Do not post when pisshed is my motto from now on
  11. I do have a positive experience of this. The retailer told me to make my own mind up, stop wasting his time and try living in the real world. My mum agreed. Hope this helps.
  12. Glad it is up and running. Looks like you have a sizable monitor, I'm using a standard size laptop and your second screenshot is in proportion to what I get on my machine. This caused me a bit of headscratching at first --- why won't it expand to fill the entire screen ? When you use it with a DAW however this makes perfect sense, as krispn states above. You can drag and drop patterns into the DAW to establish the song structure, whilst using EZ 2 as a VST instrument. Also while I'm blethering away, feel I may have overstated the midi controller angle a bit, AFAIK you cannot tweak sounds in a TB303 acid house or Rebirth way but there is still a lot of functionality available. Bet your neighbours are having the time of their lives
  13. Have you downloaded the Toontrack Product Manager ?
  14. Well in that case Al, EZ drummer 2 comes with meticulously recorded performances by real drummers that are used to provide the midi input to immaculately recorded real drums recorded in real studios. Check out the videos. You could choose a style that suits your song, choose an intro then verses choruses etc. change the complete kit, tweak it with studio effects, add tambourines, shakers even COWBELL or just leave it as it is, save it and quickly get on with the songwriting then return to tweakiness later ! You can learn a lot about mixing a kit from the er... mixer You don't even need a DAW it will download with a standalone version full of drummy goodness You will definitely understand drums more deeply... I most certainly did. Would a drum machine do any of this ? Download the demo and spend a few days with it
