  1. Thanks Russ. Must admit im getting more confident now. Not so much the notes, but with the sounds. Its taken me almost a year to get used to the fact that the keys sound totally different through a PA. Very off putting at first. Ive gone back to using a PA cab as a monitor. I tried IEM’s and while they work fine for me, i feel too excluded from the mix. Trying to get them all to go to IEM’s as the front monitors are quite poor quality, but you know what an uphill struggle that can be. Quite enjoying have the monitor cranked up though. Me and the drummer have practically our own PA at the back of the stage. Makes for a good back up if the main one goes down,.
  2. I took my GoPro to last nights gig. Quite pleased with how it came out. This is un edited other than trimmed in Lumafusion on my ipad. I really need to smile more.
  3. Thought it was based on Steve Jones’s book. If its inaccurate id blame him rather than anyone else. Did Disney fund this then?
  4. Same here. Until the Pistols had split up I had no interest in Punk, quite the opposite in fact.
  5. Yeah. Bloody guitarist hogging all the screen time. A bit easier to see me in this one, but still off in the distance
  6. I wasnt going to post anything, but what the hell. This was our first gig, and first gig for me on keys. Unfortunately we were playing in to the sun so a bit distracted. I wasn't in the front monitors so im very quiet. The video and audio is straight out of camera, a Go Pro Max. Quite impressed with how it turned out.
  7. Yeah, im keeping an eye for one now. The fact that it also runs on batteries is a big plus as well.
  8. I had a play on a VR09 at the weekend. First time I’ve seen one used in a band context. Will be getting mine at the end of the month to replace my iPad set up as my second keyboard (or maybe my first). The band’s keyboard player was using just this, and other than the acoustic pianos I loved the organ/strings and brass (which being Roland are very good). He said he got it for £300 used (for a recording project, so immaculate).
  9. I don’t have Disney+ either 😎😬
  10. Surprised this thread stopped being active, seeing as its now streaming. Not sure how accurate it is, but im enjoying it (although its been an eye opener if it’s is all true). I didn't know it at the time, but i took a photo back in June 2021, which turns out was the set for a brief clip where ‘Pauline’ is down on the Southbank.
  11. I wonder who will win🤔
  12. Ive just watched it all (as much as i could) on replay. GF wanted to watch it. Tell me this, were there more than a few artists playing? It seemed to us it was the same 2 or 3 groups doing costume changes most of the time 😂
  13. Well, more biased than previous years I guess. When most people can predict the score well before any songs are played it seems to make it even more of a farce than previous years……. …….not that I ever watch it when it’s on.
  14. True but this was so obvious days before it took place.
  15. I hated the winning song, and dont think it was a fair ‘music’ competition this year.
  16. God save the Queen (no, not the Pistols version). We have a street party to play on the 4th and thought it would be cool to play the national anthem. Hopefully it will be a good sing along, although not a floor filler 😁 Full orchestral presets (inc Timps) sound very grand on this one.
  17. Love em or hate em, Apple Music has the album available in lossless and Digital master versions. Sounds marvellous through my sound system. I’ve got so used to MP3’s over the years it’s liken listening to a brand new album.
  18. Even better, use the details of the other scammer on here. Let them play each other off 😁
  19. Every scammer I’ve had calls from has been Indian. Not the red kind. Not sure if this is a loaded question, but facts are facts ( to the best of my knowledge, based on accent and and name).
  20. I forgot I had started this thread. As it turned out I got the Quilter instead. It was very nice, and had a punch that my other class D’’s don’t have, but lacked some features that I wanted so I sold it on.
  21. It’s just a scam to get your money before anyone else gets it. Ive seen this a a few times. No one has it, but they are playing on the fact that if they have your money you probably wont go elsewhere. This sort of practice is exactly why i do, even if the delay is slightly longer, and i let them know why im getting my money back. There is nothing to ‘understand’ if it says in stock. That should in no way mean ‘delayed’ for any reason IMO.
  22. Yes. Every time i read a bass ‘ cuts through the mix’ i wonder why thats a plus. Any bass can be made to cut through the mix (makes me wonder if some people know anything about EQ), but surely most of the time you want it sitting exactly where in needs to be, which is not always cutting through. The overall quality of a mix is far important than any one persons ego (Singers excluded, as there really is no hope lol). Getting back to keys players encroaching on the bass players territory. I dont really believe there is one. With some bass players playing right up the other end of the neck, and using 6 string basses to get even higher etc, where do we draw the line? IME we don’t want to get clashing notes, which will sound muddy and not nice at all, but each band/mix/song should be taken on merit and not have a blanket ‘don’t play anything with your left hand’ attitude.
  23. Im now in two bands with a keys player…..me 😂 Although it’s not a conscious decision, i stay out of the way of the bass. After all, i stopped playing bass for a reason so im not going to be wasting a hand duplicating what the bass player is doing. I tend to use my left hand more as a stabiliser than anything else. I try and fill in the space between bass and guitar, but im never louder than either unless i need to be. The bass player in one band is pretty basic so that end off the mix is normally quite clean anyway.
