Re: What’s your favourite baritone/extended scale guitar?

I'm tempted to try a baritone at some point. I tune pretty low in Beige Palace and I've always used standard scale guitars up until now, but I'm starting to notice problems with tuning stability. Not sure if my ears have gotten more finely tuned, or if my playing has gotten more aggressive or what. ...

Love it on the Strat! Less keen on the others.

Re: USB-B to MIDI?

We did look into that, but couldn't figure out a cost effective way of doing it! Like you basically need to use a laptop or an expensive hardware sampler, I think. A local guy who builds his own homemade synths also offered to convert the Yamaha into basically a rack synth module (i.e. removing the ...

Re: USB-B to MIDI?

Sorry folks, I keep forgetting to come back to this thread. Thanks for all the sagely advice. Ultimately I think I've decided to just use this MIDI keyboard at home, and get another one with an actual MIDI output socket for live use with Beige Palace. I don't think I trust MIDI enough to try using a...

Re: 2021: A Year in Gear

I wouldn't stress too much about leakage from open back headphones. It's actually more common than you'd think for people to track vocals in the control room with no headphones and the monitors blaring. David Byrne and Bono definitely both do it, and I'm sure I read something about Prince doing it t...

Re: 2021: A Year in Gear

How do you find the pedal? Do you use it with just guitars? I'm considering using it with synths I've only used it on guitar so far! I really like it in a recording context, in a live/rehearsal context I'm not so sure. It's quite noisy so if you're combining it with any kind of dirt then you pretty...

Re: Incoming NGD

Thanks, haha. Ideally I'd like to knock this into something that sits alongside the other new songs for Thank LP2, but I'm unsure where to start with that. If I end up struggling then I might end up just doing a solo EP of stuff like this for fun. I'm pretty much just trying (and mostly failing) to ...

Re: Incoming NGD

I can only seem to write death metal riffs on this guitar.

Ibanez Iceman
ANOTHER Boss DD-3 (thanks Dots)
TC Electronic Sub 'n' Up
TC Electronic June-60
TC Electronic Eyemaster
Electro Harmonix Silencer

Also, tenuous, but I finally got a Numark DJ controller so I can actually practice at home rather than winging it every time I DJ somewhere.

USB-B to MIDI?

We use a very specific keyboard sound in Beige Palace which basically only exists on an old Yamaha PSR210 or PSR310. Unfortunately both of those models are pieces of shit and the keys get fucked up really easily, so we basically have to find another one on eBay every 18 months. Not a massive deal be...

Re: Incoming NGD

Finally got hold of this last night. No "proper" photos yet, but here's a very silly mirror selfie I took when it first arrived. 264199229_330463391955086_6715000638177884897_n.jpg First impressions are good. I was expecting to have to overhaul the setup, but it's really not far off. I ima...

Re: Incoming NGD

If I'd have gone for a brand new one we'd be looking at one of these enormous headstocks.

Re: Incoming NGD

Honestly I think the pointy headstock on mine is more subtle/tasteful than the 3-a-side one on the current line of Icemen. But you're the second person to point it out, so perhaps I'm way off base.

I can't believe you're even hesitating to buy that Wesley.
