    SSD vs. HDD external drives for recording

    Something like a Superior kit will load quicker, but then it's just a one-time thing when you open the project. After that, it's loaded into RAM and whether it's SSD or not won't matter. Well, unless you're using some kind of sampling program which actually streams from the disk rather than...

    New Ibanez S5470Q: “sustain” problem. One note decaying abruptly.

    Just that the one saddle looks out of place. The rest of them are all positioned, relative to each other, in a way that makes sense, but that E-string saddle looks out of place. Normally (with a plain ol' set of 10s) it'd sit a bit further back from the A, like your A is with the D, and then...

    New Ibanez S5470Q: “sustain” problem. One note decaying abruptly.

    Well that's certainly interesting. Hopefully it's just a matter of shifting the saddles slightly. On another matter... is that low E intonated properly?

    New Ibanez S5470Q: “sustain” problem. One note decaying abruptly.

    If it's new enough that you haven't yet, I'd start with changing the strings. Might not fix the problem, but it's not like it's an expensive thing to try. Other than that... I wouldn't think it's something with the nut or saddle(s), as you'd probably be noticing it or something similar on other...

    Advice appreciated!!

    What are you using in the cab block? The cab IR(s) will make a big difference and finding the right one(s) can take away a lot of the extra EQ work. If you're having to go crazy with the EQs in the Axe and in the DAW, I'd say work more with your amp and cab blocks. Pick something you like the...

    Question about reverb routing

    You're comparing series and parallel routing. At the end of the day they can sound identical in the Axe, but they're two different ways to do things. When you whack it in series, you need to set the mix to get the dry/wet mix you want, and then maybe also bump the output level up a bit to...

    Any particular reason for wanting a shorter scale rather than maybe just whacking lighter strings on the guitars you have? I mean, in terms of actual reach, it's not like a less than 1 inch difference would change all that much. So I'm guessing it's more the string tension you're looking at.

    ANOTHER TRIUMPH FOR THE ULTRA!

    Meh, I've had my Ultra for... I dunno how many years now. It still sounds great, and I've still really only explored a tiny fraction of what the unit could do. Sure, if I had the money I'd have bought an Axe II by now. But kinda just... because. If I want to, I can still sit down with the Ultra...

    Recommend a line mixer for me

    I have a Rane line mixer in my recording rack at home. It used to be in my guitar rig back when I had a big rack with FX units and a GCX with pedals in a drawer and whatever else going on, but once I got the Axe I didn't have a need for it there. So I found another use for it in the recording...

    Post Your Rig!

    While I'm an Ibanez guy, I've not made it past 7-strings (yet... we'll see :lol), so I don't really follow the 8s. Is that a J-Custom 8-string?! :|

    Interview with yours truly about pain and pain management

    Thanks. She's kinda looked into some things, but I think the broad spectrum of possible causes (and the rather trial and error means of going through them), and the sometimes lengthy time frames for (possible) results... she ends up just going nowhere with it. Maybe if it gets bad she goes to a...

    Interview with yours truly about pain and pain management

    Very interesting story, thanks for sharing. I've passed it on to a friend who suffers from severe migraines. Even if there's nothing she finds directly relevant, hopefully she'll be inspired to actually do something about it instead of just putting up with it until it goes away and then waiting...

    Best guitar lineup I have seen in years.

    Checked out the two clips. Not particularly excited. Sounds like fairly standard cliched metal. Also not particularly inspired by the idea of a project with six shredders and no bassist.

    Questions from a fractal newb about recording

    No, run them into the interface's line ins. I wouldn't bother with the tube pre, but if you want to try it and you like it... well that's up to you. Me? I'd dial in the sound I want with the Axe and put it straight into the interface.

    Concerned: Want to use Matrix GT1000FX with 1-12 v30 cab for time being.

    What's your idea of being "very careful"? If you're just talking about playing at home for now, you're probably not going to have any problems. You'll be pumping out a fair bit of volume before you push the V30 too far. I run a 2x12 with a pair of CL80s... my GT800FX's LED indicator barely...

    Adjusting SP-1 Mission pedal

    I take it you mean the pedal action is loose and it just falls forward when you take your foot off it. There should be a hex screw in the back underneath the pedal that you can adjust to tighten it back up. There's a Youtube video somewhere on the ME site showing you how to do it.
