Microsoft is not a viable alternative to Apple; perhaps this decade will include audio professionals taking Linux seriously.

Has anyone found the archived performance on the WTJU website? Either my fatigue is playing hell with my cognitive abilities, or navigating that website is extraordinarily unintuitive.

Have you made videos demonstrating this with the melody side of your Stick(s)? This clip features the melody and bass sides of a Stick through Fargen's version of a blackface Fender Showman. The overdrive is a Timmy, and there's a Shannon phaser on the clean part at the beginning. There's no guitar...

I understand and am well versed in sound engineering tubes, etc. ,and I am sorry but it has nothing to do with any "mismatch" of amp to instrument. There is NO proper pairing of instrument to amp. They are separate entities that do what they do regardless. Tube amps, particularly tube pre...

Stick is tricky too because you can't necessarily listen to an amp or pedal demo on Youtube and think that it will sound anywhere near the same. I think it's probably because the way we play, tapping vs. picking/strumming, that amp...

So? All I was saying is that it runs everywhere. Does it matter where it originated? I was not criticizing you. Both projects have achieved popular awareness, yet many people who use the software hold the belief that Linux cannot be depended upon because it is open source. This bothers me, hence I ...

Still nothing sounded quite as good as the real valves on my Backstair and Carvin combos. If that was a Blackstar HT series combo, then the preamp distortion came from a built-in distortion pedal—not a valve. If your Carvin was one of their Vintage combos, then its preamp distortion was created via...
