  1. Personally I find the blackstar HT5r the most versatile. Its a good clean amp, with handy dandy features like a usable line out/in. Theres a lot to be said for having a pedalboard solution like the two notes le clean, and just plugging in to the desk in open mic type situations.
  2. Hey all, Not got round to ash's latest vid yet as im playing catchup on my watch list. If it helps at all, I used to normalise the vocals which took them down to a pretty low volume. I was then gain staging them with compressor plugins .. Waves L2 etc.. I'd then have a limiter on the master track set at 3db short of maximum. Now i find I have the internal limiting set on my Zoom recorder, and i run it near max gain, so that tends to compress the vocals to about where they need to be anyway without needing further processing, I do apply the "podcast voice" eq still but i'm considering stopping that as it can sound too boomey on some playback devices. I think the key still is though that i use one of the waves maximiser plugins to limit near max vol, push the vocals till its lightly kissing them. Then set the music volume by ear.
  3. Latest video is up. Warning.... contains scenes of shocking use of a pillar drill... LOL. I def think i'll use the method @Bizman62 suggested or similar for thicknessing the top next time as its proving tricky. I think im getting to the point where im ready to accept imperfaction and move on though
  4. I really look forward to seeing this one finished... I sense a GOTM inbound.
  5. Also a handy tip thank you. MS Paint lol.
  6. Thank You @Bizman62 I must Admit I'm finding the low viewer numbers a little disheartening for all the effort it takes to edit these videos, but your comments made me smile. It's nice to know I made someone laugh so thank you. I shall try and keep the humour going. Especially for the longer videos. Just a random thought, If you like that kind of humour and you like old car restoration, you may enjoy the channel "Bad obsession Motorsport" on Youtube. As for you Carving Idea.... That's genius, I didn't think of that! By tattooed bloke do you mean @ADFinlayson ? Ash already suggested I should thin down the edge of the holes as much as possible given my slip-up. This cements further in my mind how I should approach it
  7. OK. I won't Lie.... I crack myself up lol. Things are getting interesting now..
  8. My next do i/ dont i, is whether to carve or route for pickups first.
  9. Thank you, I worry my lack of experience and sedate style might put people off but i have a few regular viewers so i'm happy.. As for the carving I intend to use a grinder with a flapper, and you might be right. I think keeping a curve continuous over the holes may be tricky. I might put the offcuts back in the holes while carving?
  10. Latest vid is up. Still wrestling with exposure settings a bit but i felt like the vid was decent quality this time out ^_^.
  11. Looking good mate. I'm jealous of your multicam setup. You already have more subs than me... damn you
