Archives for Years 1-5?

Just wondering where the archives were for years 1-5? :) I've been working through some old ones for fun.

I forgot to add that I sprung for a Toneport UX2. The firewire interfaces had issues with my old laptop (Presonus isn't compatible with the graphics chip I have). I also saw that the M-Audio stuff seemed to have poor support for Mac laptops, which I'm thinking about upgrading to at some point. I fig...

Something I see a lot of people do is say "Well, I don't want something great right now, I just want to get the job done ..." Say they're saying this around pre-amps, so they buy a cheapo sound with a built in pre for $75 and are happy for 3 months. Then they start reading some recording blog, and ...

I have an acoustic recording I made with the MobilePre and those MXL mics here: http://www.soundclick.com/bands/songInfo.cfm?bandID=608436&songID=4502821 Click the hi-fi version or download the MP3. Sounds okay for free mics, the mobilepre, and free recording software (Audacity.) Easy, cheap, and g...

SM57 and a Laptop...

So I've got a SM57 and a Dell Laptop. I basically put the mic thru a transformer and into the mic-in on the laptop and got the following recording using Audacity: (just a short intro from a Death Cab for Cutie song) What I'm wondering now is should I upgrade - a) a better interface, usb/firewire lik...

First Guitar?

Just wondering how many of you still have your first guitar? I'm going to be acquiring an acoustic/electric to upgrade my S6+ (less an upgrade than a sideways-grade to a Takamine with built in electronics). Originally, I thought that I'd be ok with selling the guitar to recoup some of the costs of t...

I own a Seagull S6+ and I've played a Yamaha FG700S. It's a really nice guitar. I've actually contemplated swapping my Seagull S6+ for one of the more expensive FGs, the FG730S. If you look at reviews or ask around on some other forums, there are a lot of people out there who think the Yamahas are a...

It's actually a Takamine EG530SC dreadnought, if people were curious. I've just been looking for an acoustic/electric recently.

I would recommend you go to a Guitar Center or other large music store if one is near you. Yamaha is a pretty good budget guitar. They make a wide variety. I think the FD01 is probably ok, but if you look for a Yamaha guitar that has an S in the name, that means it has a solid spruce top, which mean...

Hm. Doesn't this mean the front of the guitar has a tendency to fall away from you, though?

How about when wearing the guitar? I actually have an SKB case, not the standard case.
