i wouldn't master anything myself, i become too critical after the editing stage and would probably over think myself to shreds!
everything i do these days, i have james plotkin master; he's got amazing ears, always goes the extra mile, works really reasonably cash wise, and is a helluva guy to boot!

I've become rather fond of http://www.tonefactor.com recently for their wide variety of pedals and effects.   Mainly because I just got a guitar, but I've always liked effects in so many different forms.

What are your favorites?  Your 'go to' pedals and effects?  Recommendations?   

Hardware / Software - it's all good.

there's 2 malekko echo 300's on ebay now... $200 and $150 respectively, but no 600's...

Recently I've been getting into Native Instruments Guitar Rig. It does a lot of what I want effects pedals to do. I do wish I had the foot controller that goes with it, though. My old standby rig is a Line 6 POD, MXR Carbon Copy delay, Line 6 DL4 delay modeler, MM4 modulation modeler, MoogerFooger Phaser, and MoogerFooger LPF. I also have a Guild Copicat tape echo that is fun to play with. I have a Roland VG-88 guitar processor and GK-2a pickup that I have sort of forgotten about. I need to get those out and play with some more.

got tons of effects, lotta boutique stuff but... LOVELOVELOVE guitar rig 4! such great sounds, so many options, all useful.

found my way back here captain!

thoughts and prayers with you Jim-

Thanks for watching and for the comments guys.

Yes - "The Great Gig in the Sky" is my favourite piece from "Dark Side".
I'd declare "Shine On You Crazy Diamond - Parts 1-9" as my personal favourite song of all time.
Rick was a huge contributer to this beautiful and emotional creation.

you sent me that link to my gmail Scott...

I LOVE IT!

claude debussy-preludes

'La fille aux cheveux de lin' or 'the girl with the flaxen hair' is my fave.

it tastes like buttercream cake frosting and feels like cool, fresh linen.

in my ears/mind that is.

it's funny that i stumble upon this, (i started doing cardio 20-25 minutes a day; 6 days a week about 2 and a half weeks ago)...
i sleep better, feel more relaxed and focused and my blood pressure has reduced a great deal since.
i love it!

great entries so far folks-
ironically, i'm recording the rain and cars going by on my street in the city in Buffalo, NY right now;
sounds like a wonderful rainy summer night in the city to me-
Rain? I remember rain. We are in the middle of a SERIOUS drought. The idea of listening to rain sounds so wonderful about right now. It's 11:48 p.m. here and the temperature is 84' F.    Harry (glowing like a pig)

more rain today... beautiful to listen to as you sleep-

What microphone(s) would you recommend for professional field recordings..with still an low budget in mind ???
From what I know...such microphone are usually very expensive...

honestly, i don't use a mic with the zoom, (it has 4 capsule mics built in), but if you were to use a mic, i'd probably go omni-directional.

You can shop for bamboo flutes in many places, including here:

http://larkinthemorning.com/Bamboo%20Flutes/c/9/


Thanks I might send them an mp3 sample of the robert rich flute, and they will tell me what kind of flute I should buy.


if you've never played one before, you might want to consider going out and trying a flute in a music store; the embouchure can be
a tough thing to develop. not at all trying to discourage you, and good luck with the quest-

various Richard Matheson short stories, including 'mad house'.
if you're not familiar with him, he wrote 'what dreams may come', 'i am legend', and several twilight zone episodes.
brilliant descriptives.
