    Moving From FL to NJ

    We're moving from Fl to NJ in early January. The wife's sister in NJ had a stroke comes first right? We're retired and have lived there before (20 years ago) so it's not that big a deal for us. I'm going to be making custom shipping boxes for all my guitars. The guitars...

    Changing A Humbucker Cover Question

    Another dumb one from me. I'm changing the covers on a set of humbuckers from chrome to black. No big deal. De-soldered the covers and carefully removed them. The pups are, of course, completely wax filled on the sides all around and the wax is still intact and it will stay on when I put the...

    Lost Zoom R16 Control Surface Ability

    I just realized that I lost the control surface function on my Zoom R16 on my Win7 64 laptop. I use Reaper as my DAW and was always able to use the R16 control surface functions. The R16 still works fine as an AI. All controls in Reaper work but when I go to Control/OSC/web in Reaper...

    New Strat Build - Problem Solved

    I recent Strat type build I did had a weird sound problem. It had a sort of "acoustic overtone" in every switch position. I thought it might be the pups I chose so I changed them and the problem really didn't get solved. I had locked down the trem / bridge with 5 springs and by screwing the...

    AKG K371 - Awesome !!

    Hey everyone......I got some AKG K371 cans not too long ago and have been using them since. I had an Amazon gift card and since I've sort of become a headphone junkie....I looked over some reviews and these jumped out at me. While I was IMMEDIATELY impressed the moment I put them on.....I...

    Guitar / Bass Cable's the deal. I've been using Monster Cables for some years now. That's the only brand I have. To be honest man.....they really seem to take a beating but.....I hate them because they're so damn stiff and unwieldy. Nit picky right? Well....I did accidentally break

    How To Figure Out My Subwoofer Setting the category of almost dumb one for you. I have a sub that I'm going to add to one of my sets of monitors. The monitors are awesome but only go down to around 60-63hz accurately.....according to their specs. I've had the sub for a while and it's fine except that...

    Holy "Crap"

    Just picked up a 1 year old Epiphone LP Studio for $75. Not a scratch on it....straight bolt on neck....controls are fine.....excellent feel and light weight. That's all you can say good about it. The tuners are terrible. A couple of them feel almost stuck. The pickups are terrible. They...

    Reaper Looping???

    Ok....I'm sure this is me doing something stupid. Been using Reaper for many years now and I've never come across this issue. Let's say you're "cutting" a certain portion of an item on a single track. That leaves a highlighted area across all tracks right? The cut works

No problems with latency and I can get upwards of twenty tracks with moderate use of effects before I run into any issues. However.......when I use the R16 with YouTube and other streaming video I run...
