Thanks for the Welcome. I think I joined this site (and several others) about a year ago, but never got my page started here. Also thanks for the photo of your Harmony collection. Which issue of Vintage Guitar published your photo? Was there an article dedicated to Harmony guitars?
Was reading the discussion in Taylor Guitars about the TRS Jack. I scoured over the T5 pages on the Taylor website & nothing was mentioned about them. A search for a manual, required a "Sign-up" for email. If it is indeed using a TRS, I would guess it would be the third connection would mainly be for controlling the noise associated with simple 2 wire connections, as in microphone cables. My POD2.0, as well as my Tascam US-1641 uses TRS without being stereo. I would imagine that with the T5 being an "Upper-end" Guitar, they are using this technology. and would probably be T-hot R-neutral S-ground.
I could also see where one would be able to use this with an adapted mic cable to connect directly into a mixer. Not claiming fact, Just an observation.
I play most of the time in a duo. 2 acoustic guitars, 2 vocals. I also use a Digitech Vocalist live4 for some added harmonies. Cool box. We play pubs, not usually more than 80 people. That means capacity, lets be realistic....we usually play to half of that. From time to time I run the same act solo. I presently use a 12ch Mackie CFX-12 through 2 Mackie SRM350's. I use a small Yorkville 50w keyboard amp as a monitor. A little small and lacking a little low end but they do the job well and so far they've had enough headroom for anywhere we've played. I'm starting to get tired of the hauling, especially when it's solo. It's simplay a lot of stuff to set up and transport. Speakers, stands, mixer, cables, guitars....etc I am looking for some advice here about the Bose L1 compact and/or the Fishman SA220. I've heard them both in the store and like different things about each one but I haven't heard them in a pub and am not sure what that might sound like. Can I drop the monitor? Will it be loud enough?
Even through the Mackies my Taylors sound great, I use a Sennheiser e935 for vocals, it too sound very nice.
Sorry not to answer you right away Edward. My family life has been really crazy the past 9 months because my son was the victim of a hit and run driver, so I don't get onto the social sites very often.
I like the lap steel you built; it's really nice. Actually mine is a pedal steel, but not the normal kind. It's called a Multi-Kord. The pedals change the type of chord you are playing, like major, minor, 7th, etc. I haven't done a lot with it yet. I'm still getting the hang of using a slide. For the moment I have it in an open E tuning. E-B-E-G-B-E. I figure that way the notes on the top 3 strings will fall on the normal frets, and I can do an alternating bass on the two lower strings. I may change my mind though, later.
Thanks for commenting on "Play This Game"! I have had a dry spell and am out of it now. I also had some things in the way that I got out of my way so I could do writing again!
I still haven't been able to do anything in the way of an EP like you have. Yes, I still listen to it on occasion! Always a pleasure! I can burn my own songs on an Audio CD but to do many is beyond my budget, and time!
I have a song I am working on now that my Son wrote the words for. I have a chord progression and am working on the melody now. No name for it yet. I have to listen to my Son's opinion on it too! :)
Good to hear from you as always. Your ideas for your new CD sound great-I'm betting that you will figure out how to include the video on it I'll look forward to being able to listen to the CD wqhen you finish.. My wife is probably going to get an I-Pad in the near future-I'm hoping she'll let me use it to play around with Garage Band a bit and see what that is like.
I have been doing a little writing-nothing finished but some ideas anyhow. Mostly I have been getting some different songs together to play at open mics (I'm doing two this coming week)-stuff that might grab people's attention away from their dinners or drinks. Any suggestions?? Last night I was working on an acoustic version of the Steve Miller song "Rockin Me". I have also been doing some recording-covers of songs that I like and wanted to do my own version of. I also need to learn more about Pro Tools-that's one of the reasons I am trying to do some recording-just to get more comfortable with it. Do you use mic preamps when you record??
Do you know when in June the Philly show is. I know we have a wedding on the Cape one June weekend but I'm not sure which one. I would love to get the chance for us to actually meet if possible.
Take care and please let me know when your CD is finished. I always look forward to music from you!!!
Hi Edward. No the ovation is not my nylon string. I have a very old antique nylon string guitar I have not used. I like the bright sound of the ovation but I don't particularly like the style of the wood and round back. I went with Martin recently. Best guitar I've had yet.
Thanks for the welcome to the Logic Pro 9 group. I could have sworn I was a member at one point albiet not a very active one due to my limited recording exercises. Oh well, either way, it looks like a very informative group.
