    Recording Studio Electricity

    I know most studios tend to spend a tremendous amount of money on electricity/wiring for clean power. I'm having tons of work done on the house and the electrician is coming soon to do a ton of things. What exactly do people have done in the studio for electricity? or what would you recommend...

    So... I got a Kemper and an Eventide H8000 & Austin Buddy...

    I'm a firm believer in that demo-ing at home is the way to do it. Trying something at a store or watching youtube isn't the right environment to truly get a feel for something. But once you own it, it's different- especially with money involved... I don't have to worry about selling this or that...

    Studio PC Hard Drives

    6 years ago this month I built a PC, and I think even by today's standards it's still good.. Last year rehoused it from a 4 space rack mount chassis to a silent/soundproof case, with noctua fans and cooler. The computer has 6 hard drives and after 4-5 years decided to start fresh/reformat...

    I'm bored, so I thought I'd share my thoughts on two new things I got... Good and Bad... Good... I picked up used and cheap a BBE Wah pedal... it was supposed to be a Clyde McCoy/1967 Vox copy... One of my biggest regrets was I think sometime last year I sold my original '67 Clyde. I sold it...

    Overkill Axe2+G-System

    For a while I've wanted a G-Major 2 to rack up with my Axe2 for studio use... kinda for the hell of it... no particular reason... (I've owned Gmajor/gforce/gsystem/etc) Long story short- I traded a guy a guitar I bought at a pawn shop 2 days ago for $120 for a G-system... pretty good...

    Sorry but I have to say it... JC120

    I'm going to make some enemies but I thought this for a while... The Roland Jazz Chorus model in the Axe Fx II- in every firmware- sucks. There it is... I said it. It's not better than the real thing or near as good... I wish it were better. I still have/own/use the real thing.

    Effect Block Preset Library

    I posted in the 'wish list' an idea about focusing on effects rather than full presets and how many of the factory presets were wasted on single ideas and how we're better off exchanging effect blocks than full presets because we all have different guitars/tastes in tones/and the amps/everything...

    "amp room" instead of presets

    I'm very indecisive and overwhelmed with everything the Axe can do... Does anyone have their Axe patches set up like an "amp room" instead of individual presets? I'm thinking instead of having it set up with different presets with effects and all... settling it up for recording... have no...

    Make Sure You...

    Hit Store after you hit enter after getting the reference sound and your own guitar sound... if you save the patch right away the tone match wont be stored right and there will be no output. So hit STORE after ENTER and you'll be set PS- this is HELLA EASY and I'm blown away
