Re: My Gx_head recordings get "fried" no matter what I do

Thank you for replying. Could you answer me this simple question?: if you try to record Gx_head_amp in your DAW, does it clip to +18db minimum? In other words, is that expected Guitarix behavior, or it's just me? From what I gather you are somewhat involved in Guitarix development, so your answer wo...

Re: My Gx_head recordings get "fried" no matter what I do

If it was yesterday on IRC that was drwhat and me. Yes, it was, and yes you were... :) Thank you for giving it a try (I wrote "forum" by mistake before, I meant the IRC)... This is my Guitarix setup, it's just the Nuclear/Standard preset, with the output volume lowered to 0: guitarix_preset.jpg (Th...

My Gx_head_amp recordings get "fried" no matter what I do

Hi, firstly a clarification, by gx_head_amp I mean the Guitarix module that usually goes connected to gx_head_fx... (I've seen that there's another project called gx_head that works as standalone). Here is my case: I try to record gx_head_amp into a DAW (I've tried: Reaper, Ardour, and also Audacity...

Re: ladspa to vst wrapper?

I just want to say a quick thank you for this wrapper. I recently moved to Reaper and, although overall I love it, I was finding hard to use Reaper's plugins after 9 years used to LADSPA. Of course there is always Carla, but it creates an additional step in the workflow and it's a bit cumbersome... ...

Re: Embarassing things you did in your first recordings

In my, not one, but two first demos after I started the home recording thing, I wanted to stay sparse, so the songs were only 1 voice + 1 guitar track. In fact I was so parse that the guitar was recorded DI, and that was it; as the guitar was acoustic, I thought it was fine. I didn't discover the cr...

Re: Guitar tone sounds harsh and boxy

@ Funkmuscle, thank you for your recommendation, I'll have to check it out when my gear budget recovers from some recent acquisitions I had to make. I have to tell, however, that I don't understand the sales process of these guys; their site has a lot of letter but no sound at all. If you want to li...

Re: Guitar tone sounds harsh and boxy

Thank you for the suggestions. Wow, I didn't know neither Airwindows Energy (which just worked ootb into Carla, and what a great tool it is), nor how to use a convolver; both have already been great improvements to my tone. Tramp (or anybody), would you have a suggestion of another impulse response ...

Guitar tone sounds harsh and boxy

Hello, would someone check this guitar excerpt and try to tell me what is wrong with my guitar sound? https://www.dropbox.com/s/5sbfkmoko0kimxx/random_fragment.ogg?dl=0 Lately it's been sounding harsh and grainy, and I just can't find the cause. I've A/B tested my whole sound chain to and fro, and r...

Re: *Music* anyone?

I expect to make the final video within a week or two and then it's on to the next one. This is my 4th song learned, I have about 50 others to learn and while I could and would love to spend a year learning each, I don't think I have that luxury :shock: :lol: BTW many thanks, goes without saying. Y...

Re: *Music* anyone?

With a couple of exceptions these chords (copied from a guitar tab sheet) seem to pretty well just follow the lead track. Yes, I agree. I guess that's the charm that makes guitar so popular, but it can also be a limitation; you read a simple "G" on a tab sheet, you set your left hand in place accor...

Re: *Music* anyone?

Congratulations for your musical zest, keep it up! I also like the "healthy anger" that your post title transpires, I hope I still keep that kind of fire when/if I reach your age (I'm in my 44th year right now): I too feel a bit alienated sometimes among so many "techheads"; maybe this forum would b...

Re: Screaming amp simulation ideas?

Hey 42low, thank you for all the resources.... Btw. I can advice you a modeling amp. Those are not expencive at all if you buy a used one ($50 at most must be possible). Yes please, do recommend.

Re: Screaming amp simulation ideas?

Thank you for all the responses. Wow, I had a premonition of crickets when I wrote the post, because most of the stuff I see here is usually techno/acoustic, but hasn't been the case, so thank you... My equipment is very limited, so any real amp solution is not possible for me right now (that's what...

Screaming amp simulation ideas?

I'm making a song that requires a "screaming amp" entering at a certain point -that kind of effect where you kick the distortion pedal on and all hell breaks loose; one famous example would be Nirvana's "Sliver" (amp entering at 18"; I would like mine to be even more screaming and blizzard-like). ht...
