You can use a foot switch to punch record, I bought a foot switch at my local music store...there are two types, latching and unlatched...I'm using a latching one, so I don't have to hold it down. With the recorder is on…"
"HI Nikki, It's delicious, the sound of a considered lone acoustic guitar...I like what you're doing...your much the opposite of me...I tend to be more uptempo, but the sound that your sculpting is very beautiful. I'll be listening for…"
"HI Nikki, Thank you so much for your crit. I've had a number of friends and family listen to these tunes, and it's interesting, they all have a favorite, but rarely are the fav's consistent across many folks, something for everyone I…"
Thanks for sharing the tracks. I think you've got a lot going for you here, you have a very authentic country voice. I particulary liked 'An easy Wind' (your voice is particularly good on this one) and 'Down In The…"
"Hi Nikki, I've been busy writing and recording 0n my Tascam DP-008...you expressed an interest in hearing my tunes previously. You can find 6 of them in their "works in progress stage" on www.soundcloud.com, enter…"
"Thank you Phillip! There's another if you like...
There are a couple of things to watch...the A and B inputs...(Rotary Knobs) at the top of the panel layout, they have have little red lights that flicker when your signal is too hot...and the…"
"Hi Phillip, I've been using my DP-008 for about 3 months now...I love it! I'm still messing around trying to find the sweet spot on the levels. I've had best results keeping the levels well below the clipping zone...depending on what…"
Thanks for sharing the tracks. I think you've got a lot going for you here, you have a very authentic country voice. I particulary liked 'An easy Wind' (your voice is particularly good on this one) and 'Down In The Mine'.
I know that getting to know the gear is a steep curve but I think you've done a really good job here. The only 2 comments on the down side are controlling noise (hiss and crackle here and there) and maybe consider topping and tailing the tracks to get rid of the gap at the start of the tracks.
Otherwise you should be very pleased with your results!
Thank you for the friendship. We'll have to get together and share some guitar playing. From looking at your profile. Welcome to Albuquerque. I have a gallery/performance space downtown you should come check out.
Hi Bob, I love the Martin 000-15S. Naturally, it has a lot of low-end and is great for finger picking and acoustic blues, but I had a B-Band active pickup put in it and I find it is great for just about any style of playing. I went against my local Martin dealers advice and put Elixer's on it (he's a bit of a purist, which is fine) and it reconfirmed what I already knew...Elixers make every guitar sound better. (my humble opinion). A word of warning about an active B-Band in this guitar played through an acoustic amp with it's own pre-amp...it is like taming the wild beast in some settings. But that's acoustic amplification. Sorry, long answer to your short question. For the roughly $1,100 price point it is a GREAT guitar. Take care.
