    This is great!

    There's some alt/country vibe in some parts that I dig a lot! Reminds me of Israel Nash, which I absolutely love.

    I really felt like singing something when I heard the rhodes intro, inspiring!

    Nicely done. Voices and instruments compliment each other well. would love to hear more

    sercho, I absolutely loved that!

    So good.

    Thanks very much, guys! slateboy if you fancy you can listen to our own stuff on spotify or download it from bandcamp:

    You might notice a huge difference in sound between all the records... I´m not very happy with the sound of any of the three records we have, so I´ll mix the next one myself for sure LOL! We´ve also had quite a few lineup changes thru the years, that doesn´t help either!


    Hi everyone! I recorded this cover (8)Stevie Wonder´s Master Blaster) with my band last december before all this crazy shit began happening, and finally had the time to do the mix and mastering, and edit the video as well!

    The lockdown caught me with my Kemper at the rehearsal space, so I had to do some reamping (wanted to fatten the rythm guitars a bit) and though I´d have loved to have my kemper here to do it, I have to say Mercuriall Spark did a great job at this; there´s one main layer of rythm guitars (Kemper - JCM800 hot rodded TAF profile I reckon) and two more layers (same take between these two, so no 2 more layers actually) with Mercuriall Spark at different settings for a wider texture or flavor.

    First thing I mix with reaper, recently switched from ProTools after many years of use, and I have to say it´s an incredible DAW, I´m REALLY impressed!

    Hope you guys like it!

    Stay safe, <3


    This one is on my radar, simulates preamp and power amp with an effects loop in between, Cab-Sim, plenty of IO for a small footprint.

    This, a couple couple of pedals, my power stage 170 and cab, done.

    That one is really appealing!

    Also super-curious of what the MOD dwarf has to offer, sambrox .

    In my case, I went for a second-hand mooer ge200 for around 200€: super-cheap, small, with FX and expression pedal, and amp sims good enough for me to practice and backup / smaller gigs; I only played it live twice, and it actually sounded surprisingly better than I expected (in comparison to how it did in my rehearsal space), 1st gig straight to PA (the venue had a very nice monitor I could use just 4 me), and 2nd gig into the FX return of a valve amp they rented for us.

    Ovbiously not the kemper, but unbeatable bang for the buck if you ask me!

    Menuda putada amigo... A mí me pasó algo parecido; me robaron material audiovisual de la furgoneta del curro por valor de unos 3000€ hace unos años, ¡sin forzar ninguna cerradura! Cuando fui a denunciar, la policía me dijo que no eran tan raros estos robos en vehículos sin forzar cerraduras, que había bastantes casos... no tenían muy claro cómo lo hacían, pero lo hacían. Yo también me quedé rayadísimo pensando si habría o no cerrado bien la furgoneta...

    Yo tuve suerte porque el material no era mío y porque mi jefe no me echó del curro!

    A ver si hay suerte!!

    1) Thanks for the tip!

    2) I guess I'll play around with the mics till I begin hearing what I like

    3) Believe it or not, I had thought of doing exactly this!

    4) Yeah I think the monitors are fine. A bit bass heavy to my liking, but I was planning on adjusting the control room sound a bit in the first place...

    Thank you nightlight

    Thank you waraba ! As I've got a few amps/cabs to profile and I won't have much time, I'm afraid I won't have a lot of time to experiment with 'secondary' things: as a lot of profiles out there I'd love to end up with something that works on both HB and SC. I don't have P90's but I might be able to find something for the occasion!

    Regarding the merged profiles, TBH I could tell the difference when playing merged / studio profiles (I know thoretically they should be the same with CAB ON, but 90% of the times I found the studio ones to sound a bit better to my ears).

    I will focus on getting a superb source sound and then get into profiling... I think I'll spend most of the time moving things around and testing until I get to the sweet spots of each combination.

    Merry Xmas everyone!

    So after a few years of extensive use of my toaster, I decided to hire a studio real close to where I have my rehearsal space to make some nice profiles with some good mics, preamps, etc. (I made a few profiles a couple years ago but I was in the same room with the amp, so I couldn't get a proper picture of what the mic was picking up).

    I'll be profiling these amps (most of them borrowed from my pals at the rehearsal space, some from the studio itself):

    mid 80's Marshall JCM 800 (the only one that I own)

    early 70's Marshall Superbass (Red Tolex, amazingly beautiful amp!)

    late 70's Marshall JMP

    mid 70's Marshall JMP

    70's Matchless

    A few not so vintage fenders

    I also have a few nice cabs at my disposal, so I guess I'll play around until I end with a couple cabs I like better, and I'll do the same with the mics (I was thinking of a sm57 aimed to the center of a speaker and a ribbon mic to pick the warmer freq's more to one side in another speaker, plus maybe a bigger capsule condenser for some room tone -I doubt the kemper can process that during the profiling process though, but I'll try anyway-)

    I'm not planning to do any merged or direct profiles ATM, I think I'll be able to do these if want to without needing to get into a studio...

    Does any of you seasoned profile makers (amateur or sellers) have any tip or advice you'd wish someone had told you before your first profiling session? My aim is to get the best possible profiles out of these beasts in the quickest possible way; I'm leaning towards low/medium gain profiles, but I think I'll try to cover everything these amps can offer, from cleans to sweatin'-tube dirty crunches.

    The points I have more doubts about are:

    1) Phase issues (I guess they'll be more or less easy to solve moving the mics around and analyzing the recorded waves in protools until they look and sound good)

    2) Which guitar/s to use when doing the profiles. I think I'll try to dial in something that sounds good (or can sound good after a lil tweaking) in both SC and HB, but I'm not very sure how to do it LOL, I fear I might end up with something that doesn't sound bad but doesn't sound real good either with any guitar...

    3) Refine or not refine? How?

    Thank you very much in advance!

    ps.- of course I'll upload these to the Rig Exchange once they're finished so I can give something back to this amazing comunity!

    Some more -cheap- poetry, in my mother tongue :P:

    Mirando en pantalla cómo la gente se exalta,

    el verano volaba;

    saboreando un whisky de malta

    para mis adentros yo pensaba:

    "en el foro la gente está que salta,

    mas mi sonido nunca alcanzó cotas tan altas"

    Pero cuán equivocado estaba,

    ¡y pensar que no sabía que un editor me hacía falta!
