    Can an audio interface reduce latency if it's inputs are not used?

    Ok thanks for the replies guys. I'm actually already using ASIO4ALL and the latency still sucks so I'll have to do some more research into audio interfaces since I need one for recording guitar anyway.

    Can an audio interface reduce latency if it's inputs are not used?

    Hi guys, :imnew: I'm a complete noob when it comes to recording and I was hoping someone could help me with what I hope is a straightforward question. I've been trying to record soft string section intros for my metal songs using some software (Garritan Instant Orchestra plus Reaper) and a...

    Boss RC-3 loop station trouble

    Thanks for the advice. I've just had the pedal going into the guitar input because my amp doesn't have an effects loop. I'll be getting a new amp soon though so I'll be sure to try it in the effects loop and see if that helps.

    Boss RC-3 loop station trouble

    Hey guys, I'm not very knowledgeable about guitar equipment so I thought I'd see if any of you helpful 7-stringers could clear up my confusion. I've had a boss rc-3 for a year or two now and I can't seem to get it to do what I want. When I first got it I expected that I would be able to have...

    EVH 5150 50W gain problem?

    Yeah I've heard bad things about them since ordering. Unfortunately there is no LA music near Saskatoon so the same people you've dealt with may be the ones I'll be dealing with, since I had mine shipped from their website. I'm really not looking forward to the return process.

    EVH 5150 50W gain problem?

    Thanks for the advice guys. I hooked my old solid state up to the cab to test it and it sounded just like you would expect, a bit deeper, thicker and heavier but not weaker or less distorted. The cab seems to be working fine so the 5150 really must be a dud. I just hope I can convince LA music...

    EVH 5150 50W gain problem?

    Hey guys. I recently splurged and bought an EVH 5150 50W and a Vader 2x12 Carnage Strain to go with it. Needless to say, I'm quite happy with my new gear but I do have one concern; my 5150 doesn't seem to have as much gain as I thought it would. Don't get me wrong, it sounds good when I push it...

    Power Conditioner with tube amp head?

    I was just wondering if anyone could tell me why it is that power conditioners are so commonly used with racks but not with tube amp heads. Are heads not damaged by power surges and brownouts? I recently ordered my first tube amp (an EVH 5150 III 50W) and was wondering how best to care for it...
