I ordered myself a Custom Shop Carvin back in September. It was the delivered this afternoon. Here’s a few pics. Expect a review soon.
I am still working on getting the final playtest video together on my Tubemeister review…. so rather than keep you all waiting…. I shot a fun video this am to share my early thoughts on the CD release today from Stone Sour.Watch “Stoked for Stone Sour. Album drops Today!!” on YouTube
And a happy one at that. All the best to you and your loved ones.
I’m beginning the process of writing material for my 2012 opus, and I have high hopes for a seriously rocking disc. So stay tuned for progress on the writing.
Meanwhile some goings on . I picked up a Samson CT20 clip tuner and it’s pretty slick. Also, after doing the Tone King Holiday contest I just threw down a quick preset from Guitar Rig 5 to finish up the guitar audio to import back to the video…. And it sounded amazing. I’ve gotten compliments on it and it’s growing on me. Sooooo I’ve begun tweaking that preset and adding some more “mics” to it and using the Control Room Pro feature to it fullest in Guitar Rig. The idea is to get the wall of sound with fewer tracks and its promising. I plan to record a simple track with different guitar sounds to make a decision on what I want for the CD. I also found a killer filter bank/harmonized part in Guitar Rig 5 that I already have riffs and ideas for a song. This is going to be sick!!!
Lastly, let me say guitarist Neil Zaza is HORRIBLY UNDERRATED. I just ordered his upcoming CD “Clyde The Cat” and it’s great. He is such a melodic player with insane chops. His tone, articulation, melodic sense and shredability are off the charts. Since I preordered it before Christmas I got to download it and will receive it once it’s released with his last CD “212.”
