Re: Modern democracy (was: COVID-19 freakout thread)

In other good news, we've had over 40 million people file for unemployment insurance in the last 10 weeks. USA! USA! USA!

More like, Make America Great Depressioned Again, am I right?

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Two "Chupacabra"

If the SM7B is within your budget, it's a solid choice used on many multi-platinum albums for decades, and you should have a real hard time being too loud for that mic. (Most folks have the opposite problem with it.) Glenn Case uses one too and possibly other folks on here.

Re: Song Fight! Live 2020 SF Bay Area Aug 28/29

I've broached the subject with Ken offline a bit. I've been holding out but I think it's probably time to start thinking about shifting to doing a live stream or something. Sad stuff! :(

Re: Gear Acquisition Syndrome

I did in fact take it out and try it for a bit. It sounds pretty good for the size and cost! I miss my Deluxe Reverb Reissue and maybe more so I miss feeling uninhibited about playing at a decent volume. :/ But this will be plenty fun for now. I need to try out the Rock so i can get a better sense o...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Two "Chupacabra"

Looks like the Yeti is an all-in-one microphone, audio interface, headphone amp, etc. so that's the whole hardware signal chain. Seems like folks have issues with it picking up background noise so maybe it's just got a high gain floor? Do you have issues even with the gain all the way down but recor...

My Vox mini head and cab arrived!!! I'm so excited I may not leave the packages to sit around for two days before opening them, like we've been doing with packages generally.

Re: My Life

We're having a hot few days, but for us that's ~85°F with low humidity and usually at least a slight breeze. No air conditioning in our apartment, which is the whole top floor of a not-at-all-insulated house, so we get sun on our place all day long. We're managing with fans and stuff.

Re: Can we put a link to the IRC and Discord somewhere on the front page?

The current songfight.org logo and the Facebook logo are my doing so they are probably not good to use as references. I think this is a more "official" (aka created by Spud) logo:

Re: Can we put a link to the IRC and Discord somewhere on the front page?

I've run into similar issues trying to replicate the red where all the tools I was using indicated the red I made was the same but my eyes still begged to differ for some reason. It's weird.

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Two "Chupacabra"

(This is just a side bar, I don't assume anybody cares, but just fyi having a band is not necessarily as "easy" as you may think it is. There is a lot of communication and coordination overhead, and compromising, that isn't present for a solo act. I'm not complaining, it's great, but it's not necess...

Re: Can we put a link to the IRC and Discord somewhere on the front page?

Spud made this which might be helpful: http://songfight.org/standards/ It says the red should be C60000 (or CC0000 "Web safe" but ... is that even a thing anymore? that was from so long ago). (EDIT: A quick search indicates no, Web safe colors are not relevant anymore and haven't been for many years.)

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Two "Chupacabra"

I also have a question for the judges/Niv. I made 2 different versions of my song, i.e. the second one is a completely different recording, a cover version if you will. Would it be acceptable to submit the second one as a shadow entry? I am aware that there is potential for this to colour people's ...

+1 to being bummed about you dropping our rain. :( Hope you heal up quickly and well. This is an especially rough time for having medical/health issues.
