    USB audio issue (Mac OSX)

    When it happens try going into system preferences and change the device back to default and then switch back to the axe. Might be an easier way to reset things than closing all your software.

    Neutral FULL range IR's cabs? also What amp do you audition IR's with? (high gain)

    For that type of analogy I would say it’s more like the head is the pallet and the cab is the medium. It’s integral to the sound and choosing different mediums to paint your picture on will yield different results. your analogy would be more similar to remixing a track and heavily editing the...

    Recommended places to post for help with Drum Programming ?

    Drummers still play drums. Guitarists who don’t have access to a drummer find digital workarounds. I find it easiest to use the midi that came with ezdrummer and associated Ezx kits to get close and then modify from there. That’s what I’m currently do as we record our first demo, but I also...

    Running full band (2 Guitars + 1 Bass)

    I’m pretty sure you can change channels on a block via the fc switches, but I don’t own any of that so I’m not certain. Assuming you can do it that way, then you changing channels on your amp block wouldn’t affect his. He wouldn’t have a wayto control himself unless you share the fc, give him...

    Running full band (2 Guitars + 1 Bass)

    I don’t have a 3 so I might get some of the wrong. usually when using a mono input to a stereo channel, Left is the default side to use. I would stick with that and pay attention to the routing in the preset. I’m guessing your input blocks let you select where the signal is coming from but I...

    IR Length

    Gotcha, I only think of IR’s in terms of recording so I don’t really consider or care about what an ir sounds like in a room. I also fully realize I’m probably in a minority there, I play through an amp & cab for rehearsal and I don’t play live at all. eta: and I definitely do get that you...

    IR Length

    So is there a difference in capturing room reflections on an ir VS traditionally recording a cab where reflections are happening in real time? Is there an audible benefit (subjectively) to recording a real cab and having those reflections on the recording? Does it basically just amount to a...

    IR Length

    I think it’s not actually mimicking a studio because you get the one reflection snapshot and not an actual real time decay of reflections? I feel like that’s some of the basis of what shattered is trying to find a way around, but I’m not really sure.

    7 string vs 6 string war!

    Both, depends on what I’m after. I guess I feel the most ‘free’ on a 7, but I also have more of a tendency to just play sludgy death metal stuff on the B rather than get creative and move around.

    Changing from Ares 1.03 to Firmware Ares 2.00

    yea that’s the general consensus I’ve heard. I’ve been using engl/diezel/MkIV/some others. The Engl was basically 'oh cool thats a bit better.' I think I actually increased the lows a bit because they were tighter and I could get away with having more. The Diezel was like a whole new...

    Changing from Ares 1.03 to Firmware Ares 2.00

    Personally didn’t have to adjust anything, just another noticeable improvement on my end. Not really drastic, but a bit more clarity in the low end and a more natural top end. I use high gain/death metal type sounds and run through a matrix and cab, so not really sure about frfr sounds or edge...

    MacOS Catalina *WARNING* 64-bit Driver Coming Soon!

    Shared note folders, funnily enough, are actually a pretty sweet thing to me. Also the iPad sidecar is pretty awesome on paper although I shattered my iPad so I can’t test it. There were a couple other things I was looking forward to but I’ve already forgotten haha. I keep my MacBook up to...

    NASA intruige and the mother of all Conspiracies?

    I’m not trying to get in the middle of you two here, but I think he’s just talking about the “Belluminati” ads that they ran for a while. Just implying that conspiracy theories have found a place in mainstream culture even if it’s just for the sake of poking fun. Your response there makes it...

    Your favorite traditional 2x12 guitar cab

    My Vader 2x12 so far. I want to pair it with either a recto 2x12 or a port city... mostly just because I can.
