Unrelated but a sweet method of mixdown.

Instead of using 0 for mixes, make -6 your benchmark. Boost the headroom like hell on your speaker amplification and mix like that.

When you mix it down...

That song is the best thing they've done. Regardless of taste, Oli shows he possess quite some vocal talent on the song.

Read up on compression.

It is the modern method of volume.

Extracts from an interview I just saw on local news here had her remarks pretty clear. She seemed pretty pointed at making the issue only because he is black is he successful. I just didn't get your...

Probably need a regulated power supply.

Hum is usually an electricity issue. What power supply are you using for the pedals?

The store I worked at over summer "promoted" the no bag for three items or less policy but really didn't care (that policy is standard over NZ supermarkets). I once had a customer ask for a bag for a...

Definately a good point but as I brought up in the other thread, Obama has a 700,000 vote lead in the popular vote. If the superdelegates vote against such a lead all hell could break loose.

I also...

I think Obama has the nomination now regardless of the next few primaries.

Even if Clinton takes Pennsylvania by 4-6 points Wyoming and Mississippi are going to null the effect of that victory in...

I'll never use them personally but they are stylistic with some genres. But you agreed with exactly my point, the reason why so many guitarists can't hear themselves is they're pretty much completely...

At three times the price though those pedals are not worth it unless you're in a semi professional situation or well off. The Boss space-echo issues last year are one of the best sounding pedals i've...

We are. The master volume takes is what drives the power amp tubes and it is those tubes that give the tone I love of the 900. The preamp valves are pretty gross, lots of fuzz and not much character....

I'm assuming he's not going to record with it haha. Until you get to that stage all you need is something with enough on stage volume and gain. Tone kind of comes with musical maturity.

A deluxe lacks on the gain which those bands use somewhat liberally.

Go to a guitar store and try everything out. Marshall has some decent solid state stacks that will get you close to that sound...

If your guitarist scoops his mid (as in turns it to zero or one) then tell him to crank it. The mid range is the definition area of a guitar and when it's down it becomes a lot harder to distinguish...

The JCM is really just a live horse. I'm playing with a band where everything is pretty quiet and subtle hence my wanting to downgrade.

Plus I need money as i'm moving to NY in 5 months time.

My two cents:

Countries that protect their industries tend to bring out inferior product. Free trade opens up competition and forces company to R&D their products. In that respect and in pricing...

Eh the 900 is flawed in the dual channel models. The distortion channel I find to be pretty average. The clean cranked is awesome but the volume that requires = deafining.

The Valve JR will create...
