      Yo I got a BC Rich gunslinger partially inspired by how yours sounded on a song I heard from you years ago. Im also trying to get an EMG 81 but the stock pickup is okay. Also thinking of gettign an OFR if it makes much of a difference.

      Im getting one of those newer cheaper basswood retro gunslingers, if I change the pickup do you think its even worth the money? I know they used to cost a bit more be made of alder

      Cheers man, I've been looking for local forums!
      It's good to be able to find somewhere like here, where you can swap gear and ideas without all the distance.

      I definitely will! The venue is kinda small and run by dicks but they always treat touring bands very well so you guys should love it. :lol:

      By the way mate, have you had a chance to send those patches yet, would love to have a look at them. Also what's your bass volume levels at in comparison to your guitars, my mixes are very boomy and I suspect my bass volume levels are too high, are your guitars equally as loud or is one slightly louder than the other and does each guitar track have that guitar insert from ezmix in its plugins or do you put it on the group bus channel and route all the guitars to have the insert effect in place as well as the group bus insert? And how do you go about layering your instruments, panning and stereo width within the instruments, do you use any other things on your guitar and bass tracks besides the guitar and bass inserts from ezmix e.g. stereo enhancers, compression ect? And finally how on earth do you get your mixes to translate between your monitors to say a phone speaker?

      Sorry for all the questions mate, but you're a fountain of knowledge!

      Thanks bro!
      Are those patches compatible with the HD Pro?
      And also do you master with ezmix, if so which master bus setting do you usually use, and how do you get everything sounding so wide and powerful?

      Kind Regards
      Bobby

      Oops almost forgot to ask, what type of ezmix inserts do you use for those guitar tones, they are awesome I'm quite new to it, do you have any tips?

      Cheers mate

      Hey mate,

      Im saw an old post by yourself saying that you recorded and mixed with the pod hd and ezmixer, im just wondering how you went about it. I brought a hd pro and ezmixer myself but im worried I will have to sacrifice all the tones I have on the pod as ezmixer has pre-set amps which mess up the tones when combined with the pod tones. Im probs missing a step, im still a noob I guess :p do I record it dry, if so it seems like I may have wasted my cash on the hd pro as a regular interface can record dry or is there something I can do to get the best out the pod and ezmixer 2 as individual sounds?

      Thanks in advance bud
      Bobby

      Hey there,

      Just read you've played some pretty high profile shows over in NZ... where you live...stupid of me to say really. Basically, my girlfriend is half kiwi and we intend to emigrate eventually (sooner rather than later) I'll be wanting to continue writing and playing when i get there. I'd been under the impressing there isn't much of a live music scene at all, metal or otherwise. Is that true or is it just out of the spotlight but there all the same.

      Peace

      Matt
