I find them to be less lush and sparkly and less high-density-sounding than other high-end boxes - especially the reverbs, chorus and phaser need improvement IMO.
Though I'm really happy with the compressor and upcoming delays!
How was the Zentera? Never had one of these but they were top of the line back in 2001.
All the other old boxes I see in your pic I've owned - and most are crap!
Much appreciated! Thanks!
Why is it problematic in regards to active pickups? I have one guitar with EMG's - and I want something that's simple to use, not too expensive and unproblematic with all my guitars...
Is this a software bug or a hardware restriction thing?
Lemme get this straight, and please correct me if I'm wrong:
You want reverse delays and a Mac editor, right?
Well, I didn't quite take it like this... but let's wait for Ringuz to clarify!
Pardon my ignorance, but I cannot help but wonder:
It is ok to upload "free" profiles to the Kemper database using brand names such as "Marshall" and "JTM" etc. but you cannot use these when "selling" profiles?
I love how everything is discussed to death around here these days...
Sometimes I feel like I'm in a cooking forum.
Geraldo yes, trust us!!! This is a normal super-positive statement. If you frequent in English speaking forums you'll encounter it quite frequently.
Lol, a prime example of language barrier...
Just a small but significant misunderstanding.
I love the HetSet!!! Great pickups!
Enjoyed your Bud Spencer & Terence Hill profiles!
On a side-note: Bud Spencer died yesterday... could not believe the news when I read it.
I'm incredibly sad!
...and I only know this 'cause I download so damned much... Asian pop (you thought I was going to say something else, didn't you, you naughty, naughty boy!)...
LOL... had to stop right there... couldn't go on reading after this
Ok, will resume now
mDan, I have asked the same question and got this answer: (sorry it is in German)
"Das hat damit zu tun dass GPu encoding größere Blöcke berechnet ohne dabei zu prüfen ob Veränderungen innerhalb der Blöcke besteht. Also entstehen bei gpu Encoding so Vierecke bei nahliegende Farben. Wirkt wie wenn etwas geblurt wird. Also am deutlichsten sieht man das wenn man mpeg2 mit gpu encoding ins h264 encodiert. Die Zeitersparnis bei h264 gpu ist minimal [...] und dabei wird die Datei sogar größer wenn man keine Qualitätsverluste haben will. Datei ist dann um Faktor 2 größer. Darum encodet keiner mit gpu, und wenn dann nur für webvideos ohne Anspruch YT"
Interesting you say that, oh wise Monkey!
Seriously, I have done a bit of research the last couple of days and it seems that H265 has more intelligent compression...
I'm just going for the least possible size while retaining the best possible quality. How 'bout this as a sample:
Try the Hs8's without a sub first. They had plenty of bass for me. You can always add a sub if you feel the bass is lacking
Yeah, I figured the question was a bit geeky...
Just took a chance that we have some PC-spec junkies around...
There are video forums?? Cool! I'll have a look around...
Warning: "Geek" post below!
Ok, So I'm currently putting together a new rig (PC hardware) - it will be used for music production and video production. Absolutely no MAC for me! For compatibility reasons...
So, I already have 64GB of fast DDR4-3000-RAM in hand.
Now I'm looking for the right CPU-platform.
The thing is, I'm looking to do a lot of video encoding in 1080p and/or 4K using the HEVC/H265 codec.
With my current AMD 8350 8-core - oc'ed at 4.5Ghz - it's taking 2 hours plus for a 30min video. I don't have that much patience - so I'd rather throw some money at the problem!
I've looked around and it appears that you can get much faster results using a GPU for encoding (either AMD or the current gen NVidia GTX960 or new GTX1070/1080) - but they say while you gain significant speed - the quality takes a huge hit.
So GPU encoding is out of the question - unless you're using the igpu of an Intel processor which has Intel's quick sync video feature (that apparently has great quality)...
So, it seems my only option is to go with a current gen Skylake or next gen Kaby Lake processor/platform.
I originally wanted to go for a quad-channel 2011-3 platform with a 6-core CPU but you don't get the quick sync video feature there, as these don't have an integrated GPU - but maybe these are strong enough to encode H265 via software in a fast pace.
So - what's your take on this? What to do?
a.)Get a Skylake / Kaby Lake and use the igpu to encode?
b.)Get a 6-core Broadwell-E/Skylake-E and use software to encode?
c.)Wait for AMD Zen...? (no info on this currently)
