Re: Live power buzz? arrgh help please!

you're in ground loop hell. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ground_loop_(electricity) Its worth researching what you can actually do about it - it terms of consolidationg power sources, physical filters you put on the audio outs and so on. Ah I thought It would be something like that! I'll have a read...

Re: Guitar tones and Eq help

I have GR2 and I think it's gash for distortion with chords, although distortion lead solos are not as bad. Even if you record the sound in 32 bit float at 96 Khz, (which will probably melt your CPU with GR inside Live), with GR2/3/4 in high res mode, it just sounds mushy and horrible with distorte...

Re: Guitar tones and Eq help

I used to do that! thank you mate, I have double tracked it at the moment but didn't think to 3rd it. shows what a lack of sleep can do....

Re: Ok which Alien species is abducting Keyboardist and why?

That and the fact that no one has an apartment big enough for a drum set, nor could they practice at home (noise + thin walls) = biggest obstacle to having a full band. From what I understand, drummers either pay to practice at rehearsal spaces or just use a drum pad type of thing. I think we have ...

This.

Try finding a drummer in NYC, I dare you.
I would think with the amount of people you have there, trying to find a good drummer, who's not already in a band would be hell'ish.

Re: Ok which Alien species is abducting Keyboardist and why?

i thought it was drummers... everyone is a god damn keyboard player nowadays yeah drummers are pretty high up on that list too! If I wanted a band filled with bassists or guitarists I would be sorted! Good Drummers are really hard to find. But So far there seem to be about 3 keyboardists in Scotlan...

Ok which Alien species is abducting Keyboardist and why?

Has anyone else noticed a disturbing lack of keyboardist and synth players? I have been looking for one for a few months now (I'm in Scotland) and they all appear to have fallen into Narnia! If you go and look at places like the join my band website, every 2nd advert is someone looking for a keyboar...
