ableton is insanely flexible but you have to pick a side. i never had any luck trying to hop between its more DAW-ish multitrack mode and clip view.

for what its worth ableton and its looper plugin is what i used for my live pa bass guitar project a while back. it worked v well for that

my main problem with the $5,000 eurorack setups is never have i once ever seen a video or heard a song where anybody is doing anything but making random arpeggiated doodles and beep boops with no rhythm or backing tracks. i'm sure its fun to twiddle the knobs but its just a more expensive update of the old 'circuit bent' aesthetic.

what is polyphonic after touch? is it just when the synth registers after touch individually for each key pressed?

my
bass station 2 has after touch itís pretty neat

yeah its individual aftertouch for each key

honorary mention for the bass station 2 i saw in a pawn shop with a "BROKEN" sticker and a $20 price tag (im sure it was something stupid like a power jack or 1/4" out) and i skipped it, then came to my senses and went back two days later and it was gone

at my peak hardcore/mathrock/weird noise phase of guitarin', i had like 7 pedals and a splitter driving:

Peavey 60 watt tube head driving a 2x12 cab
300 watt Peavey bass head feeding off it with a 4x10 and just doing the low end

it was unfathomably heavy, both in sound and weight

left to right

* the new bass (ignore the sticker residue on the pickguard)
* ibanez rg570
* my second guitar of unknown make, i'm currently trying to ID it so I can find a replacement bridge as it's starting to fatigue. individual switches for each pickup from the factory, loaded with EMGs. its a neck thru with binding and i really dont wanna repaint it but it needs it
* 1965 Teisco Del Rey with a single ceramic pickup you can scream into if you have an overdrive pedal running. $35 in 1994

and yeah i lose knobs like crazy

is that third one a hamer guitar or something, i've got one that has the same style of tuning knobs at the base

I actually did a detective post in ML guitarthread to try to ID it.

Best lead is that it's an old JB Player with an extra knob drilled:

Bridge lines up (it's a ripoff accutune and i'm talking to a guy on whammyparts.com re: what i need to put a genuine Kahler bridge on), toggles, headstock, neckthrough all appear to be a perfect match.

holy poo poo the bass amp guy got back to me, im glad i emailed him a second time

i've been looking for something i won't explode (the Fender is a guitar amp and you can't play a fuckin 5 string through that !!!!) and there were some lovely GK's and Fenders around, and then this popped up



Ashdown ABM C210H-500

Ashdown was founded by the guy that sold off Trace Elliot. tube preamp, 2x10 with a horn, five hundred and seventy-five watts lmao

No video yet because i do not have a mic that can properly capture the power

it's an Ashdown ABM 500 bass combo amp. Tube preamp, 7 band EQ, subharmonic generator for when you need EVEN MORE BASS, and 2 10" drivers plus a horn tweeter. British, even!

By itself it'll do about 350-400 watts and with an extension cab it's rated at 575

[ASK] me about OS/2 Warp


truss rods are scary at first cause you get this KRAK as the rod suddenly lets go, but as long as you never go more than 1/4 turn at a time its fine

i had to do the truss rod, intonation and action height on my 5string bass and boy howdy if you think a guitar neck has some tension jeeeezus bass necks are 3x harder. it was actually reverse bowed when i got it



--why am i even posting this idk!

to adjust truss rods you need 3 hands or a capo - one finger on the first fret, another on the last, and a third to measure the distance between string and fret at the 12th. you want between 1-2 business cards of room generally

if theres not enough clearanceyou loosen 1/4 turn, if theres too much you tighten 1/4

the adjustment is generally best done if you detune all the strings first so the neck doesnt have a fuckin hundred and twenty pounds of tension on it and THAT is when you start thinking about one of those string winders that clamps into an electric screwdriver

even worse on basses where theres a fuckin 18:1 gear ratio on the tuners or something stupid

Jonny 290

yeah dude neck tension skyrockets with like the third power or something stupid as string gauge goes up. i run ernie ball super slinkys (0.009's) on my 'player guitars' and 0.011's that go up to railroad track gauges on my lovely old 60s strummer, and the tensions like a 2x diff.

Jonny 290

[ASK] me about OS/2 Warp


Yeah loving with the number and position of springs to get a floyd to work right with different string gauges is a time honored ~pain in the rear end~ i mean obsession

like you have five spring hooks (or should) and you can run 2, 3, 4 or 5 springs

and if you run 2 or 3 springs you can further play with which hook you connect them to, to raise tension a bit

pre:
o o o o o
|   |   |
o o o o o
vs this which will give a bit more tension without going to 4 springs
