Re: Archive Boldedness

When you view the profile of a bold-face artist, there are some extra features on their profile. They might have a photo, or some added profile info, or a "See Also" section at the bottom of the page. I have no idea who was doing the cross referencing, and I dunno what the criteria was-- like, is it...

Re: Mixing

Here's another that I put up a while ago for somebody to mix. Not sure what state it's in, but I think it was similarly raw. Oh I do remember that this one had direct input guitars, so it needs to have amp sims of your choosing applied to it -- https://drive.google.com/open?id=17YHimNWoCQJd1tnwkRaxF...

Re: Mixing

Here you go: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1eMIlDRD77oGjegDNxSL5E0fXaEOLwmrT Pretty raw, only a little editing and a tiny bit of panning has been done to these. I turned off all plugins except Guitar Rig, and exported all tracks to WAV. Have fun, do whatever you like. You could probably spend a w...

The Moth's whining drove me nuts. I couldn't stand it after a while, didn't get super far into Season 2.

Re: Deals On Gear and Software

What makes it a "starter" tube amp? Just that it's cheap?

"Before you're old enough to afford a tube amp so expensive you're afraid to take it out of your house... get this one!"

Re: Don't get pricked on all of the (Porcupine Reviews)

I liked the solo, JB, it’s just ever since I got called out by the old cat about playing long sustained notes without vibrato, I started not being able not to notice it. I tend to do no do vibrato when I’m thinking too much about what to do next, so I’m not fully in the moment and details of playin...

Oh and BY THE WAY Sonic, from the videogame, is a hedgehog. Hedgehogs and Porcupines are not related.

Hahaha nobody likes my damn guitar solo. I worked hard on that! Just because you can’t hear the vibrato doesn’t mean my finger wasn’t wiggling! *womp womp* Anyway, not sure if you noticed in the preflight thread but I mentioned that my entry would be mildly controversial— the fact that it’s a close ...

Re: Drifting along with the tumblin' (Tumbleweed Reviews)

Thanks for the feedback, I'm aware my guitar solo skills aren't amazing so I've already offloaded coming up with a better guitar solo to my band's actual lead guitarist, so depending on whether he's able to make it to SFL, folks may hear a better version there :) Likewise with real drummer vs. MIDI...

p.s. So tell me about all your switches mid-review between second and third person. Is this something you routinely do with your reviews of male musicians' songs too? Just curious ;) There's definitely unconscious bias there, no doubt, thank you for calling my attention to it in such a polite manne...

Re: Drifting along with the tumblin' (Tumbleweed Reviews)

The John Benjamin Band This song is about how everything affects everything else, even after death or breath, because y'know, like, a tumbleweed spreads its seeds as it rolls. So in a way, it's actually only AFTER death that it can ensure the extension of itself. Uh, so that's that I guess. I like ...

Thanks for letting me babble, fellas, and editing it so I don’t sound like the babbling fool that I am. Well, not as much as usual anyway.

It turned out swell and I had a great time. Your podcasting skills are on point.

Re: The Guitar Doctor Is In

At that price point though... send that shit back if it's defective for sure. I mean either way the Dual Rec has independent master volume controls for every channel, that’s one of the things it was known for, as not every amp had that back when it came out. Without actually futzing with the amp it’...

I don't get the "linen, silk and leather" part.
eh, it’s a contortion of “sticking through” to move from Porcupine Solidarity to their to spines piercing various materials.

Re: The Guitar Doctor Is In

It's true the Muff acts as a boost, but it definitely dirties the tone further as well. It goes from "That's a growly sound" to "Things are getting serious now".

That doesn’t even seem physically possible if the drums aren’t miked. Wonder if there is a world record for loudest unamplified drum set performance.

And here I thought I had successfully drafted that criticism to describe what a listener might think about that line when they hear it rather than what you yourself were thinking when you wrote it. Guess I failed there.

Re: The Guitar Doctor Is In

I'm no expert but that seems like an odd pedal order to me. Personally I prefer tuner->volume/wah->gain/overdrive/fuzz/etc.->boost (optional)->time-based effects. Also it's interesting to me that you're using an amp simulator pedal into an amp. I'm curious to see what exactly you're doing with the ...

Re: The Guitar Doctor Is In

The Big Muff has a massive mid scoop that can make it drop out of a mix, even if the level is up high, so even Gilmour and whatever would put a color boost after the Muff to EQ it to sound good. Yes, that's what happens if I have it earlier in the chain. After the drive, though, the midscoop is com...

Re: The Guitar Doctor Is In

I can’t say I’m super knowledgeable about where to put the pedals. My Youtube research indicates that delay before gain wasn’t unheard of and it made sense to me because at the time the Joyo was last before the amp. Basically it was my preamp, so a I was hesitant to have fx after it. Only recently h...
