    Re: economical option to record myself

    I used to use free Audacity software on my PC. It's not perfect but you can mutitracks in full bandwidth, use effects, and mix it down to a mp3.

  12. Re: A tuner shootout: TC Electronic Unitune vs. Peterson StroboCl

  15. Re: Emando players: What do you want in an amp?

    $1,000 is a lot of money. I'm sure it sounds good. Can you recommend something in a more-affordable model? Thanks.
