    I just can't balance this mix

    I really like the song, that part is nailed and sounds great. Personally, all the strings are too loud though for me. I'd keep the mix of them as they sound good as blend. Send them all to a Bus and reduce the volume of them collectively and work from there. Some may need a little tweak but as...

    Cheap ccntroller?

    I use an old Tascam US2400 with Reaper and you can pick these up quite cheap now. Perfect for my set up. I have track templates set so at the push of a button I can add a new track with EQ and Compressor all controlled by the Tascam. 24 Moving faders with bank shifting in groups of 8 are great...

    PokemonNo

    I saw grown men walking/running around our town centre with their phones held high the other day and hadn't a clue what they were doing until someone explained it to me. (I honestly thought it was a joke) If ever there was a :facepalm: moment, that was it! Wait until this one is created, it...

    A throw-away bid of £20, not expecting to win but evidently did, got this tired, old, dirty, dusty, nasty looking thing from a local auction today. Despite the look of it, after a couple of hours work on it, it turns out there's a nice guitar under god knows how many years of grime.

    The Records Thread

    No mate. I don't do eBay unless I really have to. I have a deal with a couple of record shops where I take the stuff I don't want. They sell it for me and I get 75% of the sale of the good stuff and 50% of the general shit. I add these to my collection yesterday. Completed my Police and...

    Today's score. There's a shit load of others not in the photos though. Majority of these will be sold on with the exception of a few that I'll keep. Electric Ladyland for instance. :thumbs up:

    Not a purchase but a rescue. This was going to be condemned to the dump and I was assured by the previous owner that it was a complete waste of time. Indeed, the electrics didn't work, it wouldn't hold tune or tune at all really and the neck was more like a banana that a banana. I fixed it. It...

    Jokes!!

    A boy asks his father, "Dad, are bugs good to eat?" "That's disgusting. Don't talk about things like that over dinner," the dad replies. After dinner the father asks, "Now, son, what did you want to ask me?" "Oh, nothing," the boy says. "There was a bug in your soup, but now it’s gone."

    Bought an old Telephone from an auction and this old (50's?) Grundig Microphone came with. Plugged it in and it produces sound. Some more investigation and trialing tomorrow. :thumbs up:

    The Fake Drums Tone Thread

    Here's an older one from before I was as confident as I am now on the drums. I played all the parts, in separate parts, and had to edit some bits as my timing was not so good with being a crappy drummer. I guess the best thing about programmable drums, for the home record-ist who can't play so...

    Yeah it's a nice one. It had one owner from new back in 1971. It came with the original boxes, service manual, bill of sale and guarantee. Nice to own a piece of history. The old bloke who had it passed away and he obviously looked after it and kept it well serviced. All I've had to do is clean...

    Fidelity UA1 with a Garrard SP25 MkIII deck in it. It was a Wedding Anniversary present to ourselves for me and the wife.

    Just won this at the local auction for £20. It's awesome! Nice ornament and I'm sure it'll get used along my musical journey.

    Found this (Mint condition) little gem for 50p in a charity shop a couple of weekends ago. Got a load of other good bits for 50p each as well but they've been sold on. I felt a bit guilty and gave them a couple of quid extra. I'll pull some of mine out sometime and get some photos. I have...
