    Re: EQ Pedal for Live Shows?

    I have an old Fishman Platinum Pro EQ and I think it works well but dont have anything to compare it to. It is a 3 band EQ with extra refinement on the middle band. My pick up is a piezo like the K&K...

    Re: Temperature and Outdoor Gigs

    Well I guess I'll offer the counter view. I dont take my Gibson to outdoor summer gigs here. I will take it to outdoor jams/festivals where I can come and go if I want but thats different. The reason...

    Yeah, I'd send that back. Obviously a manufacturers defect.

    The UI16 does have the master eq. First click on the Master button(far bottom right) . Then click on the eq button (the usual eq button upper left ish margin)
  6. Re: HELP! I'm Running Sound For the (sort've) First Time

    Yes, thanks. Low cut/high pass. If you just hit the button it will cut everything below 80 in a sloped fashion so its not abrupt. Then I will move the first "High Pass" little ball thingy to the...

    Re: What's are some good guitar soundhole pickups?

    I have the Fishman rare earth magnetic plus internal mic combo sound hole pick up. I like it on my Breedlove better than the under saddle piezo. You can toggle between the mag and the mic or infinite...

    I use the ui-16. Lots of pluses and minuses but I feel for you trying to figure it out all at once. It is more complicated than analogue but so fast once you're used to it.

    Re: Fan to cool the band

    We gave up on the condenser mic so noise is a consideration but not as critical with our cheap dynamics.

    Another Good point- I dont think one fan is going to cool the band but as long as its...

    Re: Let's talk small, high-end, acoustic amps

    I do exactly what Foldedpath described. When playing solo, I use a QSC K-!0 powered speaker on a pole along with a mini mixer (soundcraft notepad 12FX). Simple set up and sounds fantastic. Its...

    Well I got the Soundcloud Notepad 12 FX today and I really like it. It is dead quiet. Phantom power works well with my condenser mic. The high impedance button works great on my guitar. The effects...

    I also really loved watching the shirt painting. What talent ! You could have stopped at an infinite number of places and still had a great painting. How do you ever decide when you're done ?

    Ms Hull shines through as expected. She makes the most intricate runs with such class and grace. More than enough and never too much.
