Not everyone wants to take one home and find out they got one that drools though.
Ha! I get it.
I very nearly hired a drummer to play on about half my recent album. He's really good, and he's a talented recordist too, but it was going to add $500 to the cost of the project and I still would have had phony drums on the other half. Plus, I would have had to get up to speed on mixing actual drum tracks. That has vexed me in the past.
In the end, I ended up sticking with Drummer for the whole project.
Hashtag sorry. Hashtag puppies die when people use phony drums.
This won't come as a shock for most of you, but I finally got a chance to try the Timmy into my Carmen Ghia at practice yesterday and...it sounded pretty great. Current board is Turbo Tuner>Carcosa>Timmy>4ms Trem>CB Echorec. Other than the trem which I might switch out for a Caroline Somersault or something at some point I feel pretty set.
Haha. I totally get it, as does my father, who played drums for over 40 years. Unfortunately, I live in an apartment. So when I record at home, I have no choice but to use the Logic Drummer. But rest assured, I'll be using an actual drummer, when I finally get ready to record in a legit studio, which will be awesome.
This is proper use, and you get the added benefit of them not scooting across your new white carpet. WIN/WIN!
Only made it 20min in due to some sucky headphones, but did anyone catch how he is setting up things in stereo? He speaks of running the Fulltone trem, is he running stereo out of that? Out of the delay? By pausing it at 15:27 it looks like he is going stereo out to the Strymon, then stereo out of that?
Looks like a fun rabbit hole to fall into...
I'd say it goes stereo from the Volante into the Supa-Trem 2 and stereo out from there.
The rig rundown pic of his pedalboard looks like the Supa Trem 2 is the last in the chain. Delay appears to be running in stereo too.
This doesn’t explicitly say, but you can see the cables
The cables going into and out of the strymon look like patch cables. The two cables I assume are going out of the trem look like cables to the amps.
I have effects, pedals, strings and things and also have opinions and anecdotes regarding effects, pedals, strings and other things.
Ooh! Keep us posted on pricing? I may be interested.
REPORTED FOR SOLICITING SALES OUTSIDE OF THE EMPORIUM ON TGP! EXPECT TO BE BANNED WITHIN MOMENTS!
Is the ox box worth it for just attenuation? I don’t know if I would ever use the other functions or use it for recording.
Wilco Loft is having their annual sale starting tomorrow. Get your checkbooks ready. Or however you pay.
I’ve never used the ox so my opinion is kind of worthless - but I’ll give it anyway. Seems like a ton to spend for just attenuator. Have you tried other options. The Ironman mini that @Crowder turned me on to is working great for me. It’s big - but other than that it’s terrific. Keep an eye out on reverb seems you can eventually find a lighty used one. Probably a 1/3 of the cost of the ox.
I really like meine alt schule THD HotPlate. It does a really great job, is relatively small, requires no power and has switches that do cool & toneful things.
But, you know, this is TGP - I must be missing out on something more expensive, complicated, bigger, heavier. Oh, and better. Right?
