    Cassette tapes to MP3. AXE-FX of any usage per chance?

    Greetings people. Spring cleaning among some old shite. Found a bunch of cassette tapes I want to keep, but in digital format. I have a cassette deck (or rather my vintage old friend has one). And I want to "record" these into my laptop as MP3 (or wav etc). Would you use AXE-FX as interface...

    They All Sound the Same, It's About Workflow

    I see this as wine tasting... At first you have no clue. Everything tastes the same. After paying attention and actually been to a few courses or someone teaching you, you start to taste things differently. I am way better on wine than tube amps. Think number 4 is amp. Hope its the AXE

    Disclaimer: I have no idea what I am talking about... But..... My friends Prius have lasted over 15 years with rather minimal of repair. The "start" battery slagging recently, especially during cold Swedish Winter, but it still soldiering on. Used for daily short distances to-from work

    Fractal sighting in Tokyo - Happy New Year (click-bait warning)

    Sorry for the click-bait. The singer at Gigabar Tokyo uploaded this photo to her Facebook. Its obvioulsy not this year due to THE EVENT.

    Axe III Turbo or FM9 for gigging?

    I haven't paid attention properly, but I assume FM9 is capable of running FM3 presets. Load up one of your CPU heavier presets here and let someone with a FM9 try it and tell you what CPU you are landing on there. Then you can choose wisely...

    Epic 80's Song that needs recognition

    When I arm a track in Reaper to record, it starts to ‘clip’ and distort.. surely it’s a simple setting issue..?

    When I arm a track in Reaper to record, it starts to ‘clip’ and distort.. surely it’s a simple setting issue..?

    :dizzy: I have default, default 4.0, default 5.0 and classix 1.x to choose from.... I have no idea then haha. I went for 4.0 on my machine (pc win10) and it became very close to the above and helped me sort out my settings
  53. MrGuitarabuse

    When I arm a track in Reaper to record, it starts to ‘clip’ and distort.. surely it’s a simple setting issue..?

    In Reaper, if you navigate to Options, then themes and choose "Default 4.0" I think you should have a layout looking same or similar to the above. Perhaps easier to see various settings (noob here too) :D

    When I arm a track in Reaper to record, it starts to ‘clip’ and distort.. surely it’s a simple setting issue..?

    That "elusive" 80s tone....

    Greetings all and thanks for all input so far. Sorry for the radio silence, been "wire brushing" the hell out of a few factories that cocked up. Should be back on my tone hunt this weekend and if all goes well share some tones for your review (or laughter) :D
  59. MrGuitarabuse

    That "elusive" 80s tone....

    Sort of improving with rather high ratio and hard knee (studio FB1 compressor). Great improvment btw in recent FW!! I guess I will be struggling further through the weekend with compressor before coming to the "wet" parts. At least I got my "80s lady" out of the closet. Dang forgot the trouble...

    That "elusive" 80s tone....

    Yes, yes, yes... beating a dead horse I assume... Anyway, with now two weeks ahead of me of at home writing reports and stuff I also get plenty of time for tweaking and playing. With recent upgrade regarding compressor and @guitarnerdswe delay blocks I thought I have started hunting down 80s...

    Tim Pierce has an Axe III??

    Could be, I think there was some kind of studio "rig rundown" of all (or most of his stuff, racks, pedals etc) on YouTube somewhere. A cable clatter of biblical proportions. I bet he would be happy to have that sorted in (mostly) one rack unit.
