Winnie, it is lots of fun. A great way to learn the guitar.
Building a house (just having the planning permit approved at the moment then off we go), having our first child in January (due on my birthday!), starting a new job in January as well (a promotion really), and releasing a new Vessel album in the new year after I have approached some labels with it. I also joined a gym last week. Busy busy busy!
This is good news!
Are you still round Bendigo? Still teaching? Congrats on the upcoming birth!
Yep was in Melbourne in 2016 for a year after teaching in London for a while but moved back to Bendigo with a view of building/buying a house. Much more affordable! Not changing schools this year but taking on a new role.
How's things with you?
So I did a thing!
And you can learn more about that thing and the other thing that's coming soon here: https://www.lord.net.au/united/
(OK, it's not all things, there's some stuff too.)
what amp are you using for your tone? i bought a EVH 5150 LBX from Thomann last year its fucking sick lil amp.
Take a guess and I'll tell you if you're right.
6505 or 5150?
Nope, all software based here: https://lepouplugins.blogspot.com/2010/10/lecto.html
There's a Tube Screamer plugin before it and a cab simulator running a couple of Impulse Responses, and a bit of EQ, but that's about it. Amp sims have come a hell of a long way, and even better is this thing is free
Believe it or not, my live rig is... an iPod. I'm running Amplitube on an iPod with an iRig HD interface where I plug in my guitar, and a Bluetooth foot controller. That's got a 5150 sim on it, and it sounds massive. I'm running into a tiny class D 200w amp that's crazy loud (too loud to get past half way when we did ProgPower USA, in fact), and it has a balanced line out that we can send straight to Front of House, so no fiddling with stage mics or anything like that. And it all fits in a corner of my gig bag.
Nothing wrong with amps at all - they sound great - but I know what I'd rather lug around, and I know what's easier to record with these days.
Sounds great Timmah, good work!
Why thank you, good sir!
