    @Guitarjon Thanks! I've actually read that post before. Do you tape over the ground on both ends on the cable or just the USB A side? Also, I wonder if the +5v should be taped over because it's not needed when a device uses it's own power supply?

    osteoarthritis

    The hardest part for me was not changing my picking pressure when fretting softer. I also practice fretting and picking independently. I practice to a metronome or looped drum beat and do chromatic hammer-ons and pull-offs with as little pressure as possible without picking. I then mute the...

    Dodge Challenger

    How ironic! I traded my 2012 Black Kia Soul and leased a 2016 Plum Crazy RWD Dodge Challenger SXT Plus. I was going to buy it at the end of the 3 year lease but a couple months before the lease was up it started having issues and you can't upgrade the touch screen stereo because it controls most...

    osteoarthritis

    I turn 43 next month too and was diagnosed with a herniated disc in my neck last year May 2019. I've been working in IT since 1999 and my doctors call my issue "Tech Neck" and have seen a lot more younger people with it because it's being caused by looking down at laptop and smartphone screens...

    Axe-Fx II "Ares" Rev 2.00 Firmware Release

    I just came here to ask the same question because my Axe-Fx II XL+ is still on Quantum 10.01 and I was thinking about updating to Ares 1.03 from the download page until I noticed Ares 2.00 is mentioned on the Wiki "Firmware release notes - Axe-Fx II"...

    Weird high frequency hiss

    I had to do something similar. My PC was on the right side of my desk, so my guitar or bass would pickup noise whenever I sat down and played. I moved all my PC and networking devices to the left side of my desk and all my audio gear to the right side and it made things noticeably quieter.

    New Deftones album Ohms is out now!

    I agree. I've listened to the new album multiple times already and it's really good. All the songs are good and have their own character, so you can listen to the entire album without getting "bored" ;) I started listening to Deftones when I was in high school before Adrenaline was released...

    New Deftones album Ohms is out now!

    Most of the original links to Steph's presets no longer work but I found these. Not sure if the presets will work because they were made with really old Axe-Fx II firmware that had many problems with Axe-Edit at the time. # https://forum.fractalaudio.com/threads/stef-carpenter-presets-ir.72877/...

    New Deftones album Ohms is out now!

    Just listened to the new Deftones album Ohms during my lunch break! :) Anyone know if they used any FAS gear on the album? If yes, I wonder if Steph will share his presets again? @Admin M@ do you have any inside info?

    FC Setlist and Song modes

    Yes! Please share your code. I use an Arduino Mega 2560 but this could be a good excuse for me to get into Raspberry Pi.

    Thinking about upgrading to the MKII

    Actually if people are using the FC-6 or FC-12 I definitely understand how they could run out of presets because FAS never included Song Mode or Set List mode like they said they would a few years ago. Unless people want to do a lot of tap dancing with their FC-6/12 they have no choice but to...

    Thinking about upgrading to the MKII

    I just sold my Axe-Fx III MK1 yesterday for $2100. No plans to get a III MK2 and sticking with my Axe-Fx II XL+. When I got my Axe-Fx III I thought it sounded better than my II but after comparing factory presets realized the III included better sounding IR's. I did some tone matches and IR's...

    So Sick of Dishonest Contractors

    I wish I would have just fixed our old dryer. Decided to buy a new HE (High Efficiency) washer and dryer set and they were absolute junk. The washer broke a bunch of times and the manufacture refused to replace it and they ended up paying way more to keep repairing it under warranty. All the...

    So Sick of Dishonest Contractors

    Don't get me started about contractors. Almost every one we've used have done horrible jobs and most of them don't even finish what we paid them for. I don't know if we just have bad luck but we research them and make sure they have good ratings. Recently found out that if a company pays a fee...
