    Has anyone made the switch from Apple (Logic) to PC based recording?

    I'm not looking for a debate about Apple vs. PC. I just want to know has anyone made a change this drastic change in your studio. Were you able to move any projects into the new DAW? Were your plugins easy to transfer? Did you regret it?

    New Amp Day-PANAMA FUEGO X

    Just purchased a used Panama Fuego X head from a seller on Reverb. I was moving on from my Fender DRRI and wanted to try something different. So, after searching I came across some reviews on YouTube and other sources and decided to snag the head at good price. I have had the amp a few days and...

    Belle Epoch Deluxe! Who took the plunge?

    So I was lucky(?) enough to snag a new Catalinbread Belle Epoch Deluxe a week ago and was running it through my Deluxe Reverb. I have to say that it is a marked improvement over the original, giving more control via an expression pedal and oscillating foot-switch. I did have to tweak the gain...

    Strymon Deco

    Just got one and I have to say that this is a GREAT pedal. Part OD, part compression, flanger, chorus, and delay. It seems to make my drive pedals sound better. It's kind of like audio bacon.

    Anyone know about old bamboo fishing rods?

    I inherited a bunch of different rods from my father but I don't fish and would like to sell them off and make some room for some music gear. Anyone know of a place that can do an appraisal or point me into a direction to some fisherman looking for old fishing rods? Thanks in advance.

    New Guitar Day

    Just bought a brand new Chapman ML1 from Riff City Guitars and Music Co. seen here: Decided to go with the Swamp Ash model and I have to say the guitar is put together very well. It came set-up and only needed a slight tuning. For under $569 it's a great guitar. Highly recommended if you are...

    Logic X Update 10.2.3

    Anyone else here that uses Logic having a problem with this update? After I downloaded it and ran Logic, the program would crash on startup. The farthest I can get is the "choose a template" prompt. I also did a complete reinstall of Logic but that didn't work either. No help from Apple or...

    Keeley Mod Workstation

    This is just a quick review since I just received the pedal yesterday and had about 30 minutes to play around with it. Like the drives, especially the Oxblood. The Katana/1962 section is very usable. As for the "Mod" section, I only have a few criticisms. The rotary effect is not very...

    What are those things called?

    Those large buttons that you put on your effects pedals. Especially if you have something like the Keeley Tone Workstation where you don't want to hit two buttons accidentally.

    Anyone using the Keeley MOD Workstation?

    I'm looking to reduce the amount of pedals on my board and the Mod Workstation seems to fit my needs nicely but before I drop $300, I would like to get some feedback from anyone here using it. What's good about it? What could be better? Is it worth the money?

    Strymon is getting into the power supply game Nice idea in making it expandable but it's 2016, so why make these things so huge? If GigRig can make them small why isn't that approach catching on?

    What we did on our Summer Vacation!!!

    This past July, my wife and I were in Minneapolis on a working vacation. With a Mac Air running Garageband, a Mackie Pro FX 12, an M-Audio Mobile-Pre, a bunch of SM57's and 58's and a very tight budget, we managed to record over 10 actors in a comfortable sized hotel room over the weekend of...

    Why not The Gig Rig?

    I have noticing threads on various power supply options and I really have not seen any mention of the Gig Rig . Seems like a no brainer since everything is so small and the power cables allow you to trim them to size and the Generator can put out 5 amps. That's enough to power a very big...

    Lost a friend today.

    After a painful wait we were told that Bebe had a 13cm sized tumor in her abdomen that was cancerous. We went over all the option and it was decided that the best thing for Bebe was to let her go. My wife, Lindsay and I had our last moments and stayed as Bebe slipped away peacefully. It was...

    NPD-Amptweaker TightDrive Pro.

    After returning my Keeley Time Machine Boost I decided to look at some Youtube videos for a overdrive with a built in boost. After looking at a few I really liked the Amptweaker TightDrive Pro. I saw one on and made an offer. Got a brand new one for $240. Great pedal. I like how...
