No risk, no fun.
Performance Mode is much faster, yes.
But not good for me, I'm actually working on a bigger
MIDI Floorboard with 6 or 7 instead of 5 rigs.
Seamless yes but not immediate. What a pity !
Last weekend I had my 1st "liquid" gig, and I noticed a much longer reaction time for rigs as before.
(not a droput, just a delay until the new rig is active)
The reaction delay is approx. 0.5 .. 0.7 seconds. (estimated, not measured).
I´m using browser mode, a toaster plus a remote.
I Retested at home with MIDI Program change, the same.
Using buttons at toaster the same.
Did someone else note that ?
Better a complete Studio EQ.
So back from gig :
I noticed the difference, the "feel" was better than using my unliquid profiles.
The other musicians did´nt note it (differences are only small, character and gain were preserved)
The FOH Man noted a little better cut the mix.
FYI : I did not make real LQPs, I only raised them without looking for correctness
(If it sounds good to me, it is good)
The Morgan AC20 with Voice Ace 15 / Fan Vibr Champion / Voice Ace 30 Nrm
The SLO100 with Mard Plex Brt
And I am not talking Italian.
Tomorrow we will have small gig.
I'm curious, what will happen with me and if the other musicians and our FOH man
will notice the difference. I didn't tell them a word.
Gonna use only 2 liquified amps in some variations, our beloved rmpaceco's Morgan AC20
an a SLO100, bought from Bert. I don't like 33455 amps on stage.
Less is more.
It's a kind of magic.
To be honest - I´m not a professional musician.
I´m a hobbyist - maybe a good hobbyist, but not more.
So I´m not professional enough to keep my left and right hand in good sync under all circumstances.
Of course LP cannot fix my old hands.
Somehow it helps and it makes me playing more with more fun.
And if it´s placebo only - as long as it works for me ...
I'm impressed, too.
I can play faster and more accurate, and the attack feels much better.
The fingers are no more sticking on the fretboard.
It feels somehow "relaxed".
I played loud using a pair of good studio monitors.
I made 3 tries (without knowing what to do)
1st try : Huuuh, not so bad !
2nd try : Nope, sounds somehow overprocessed and overfiltered, I don´t like it.
3rd try : 3 Liquid packs on RM : Don´t taste to me, some too dark some too harsh.
(Found 2 HighGain sounds in the Rigbuster Pack, which were ... ok , but not changing my world)
Waited a few days, read the documetation, looked a few videos.
Then I elevated my favourite Lead Rig (a SLO100, bought from Bert Meulendijk)
to liquid using Mars Plex Brt, needed not much tweaking and what the hell !
+ the post amp studio EQ is now obsolete
+ the delay/reverb sounds better, not so "weak and washed"
+ the attack sounds much more realistic
+ my fingers need less power at the fretboard (why?)
+ I can play faster and more accurate (why?)
+ the overall feeling is no more as sticky fingers on the fretboard (why?)
+ less harshness, more punch and warmth = more life
- I had to raise rig volume by approx. 2.5dB (doesn´t matter)
The same result with our beloved rmpacheco´s Morgan AC20 using Fan Vibro Champion.
Bright Cap 7.7, Bass -3.5, treble 8, Gain 4.5, pre amp a pure booster +1.9.
A nice reverb on top and BANG - the best SRVish sound I ever played.
Also a very nice feeling and dynamics at the edge of breakup.
(to be honest ... I cannot play like SRV, but it feels soooo good)
Thanks to CK and his team for this (free!) update !
If not mentioned before 21354x ... The Morgan AC20 ...
Jepp, I would like that, too !
If you are too impatient, you could fill some liquid beer into your toasters...
I am really impressed that no new hardware is required since many years.
I guess ... in summer !
I prefer the Booster of Death !
2 unpopulated PCB Boards are leftover.
If someone ist interested, we can make a deal.
The arduino source code for the ATTINY84 you can get for free.
Really no secrets inside.
