    Re: basic recording setup

    An alternative would be:
    1) Buy a Zoom H2N. This can be used as a recording interface, and does 44k/24bit (I think ... but pretty sure). You can also use this like a cassette recorder as a portable...

    My personal USPS story - ordered a mandolin from Kentucky, for delivery in Switzerland. Was shipped USPS. Clerk mistook Switzerland for Swaziland and it sat there for two months, phone calls ignored,...

    Re: One more banjo question

    There is a boatload of builders that make fantastic open back instruments for not too much money. Pisgah, Reiter, Rickard ... the list is long. Go to the Banjo Hangout and ...well, hang out for a...

    Just in case it’s not known, ToneDexter has a different ‘persona’ for mandolin and other high-pitched instruments.

    Re: Multi-track Recording?

    Well, if you are going to do a lot of recording you would buy or assemble a dedicated pc, and once it is installed, keep it off the internet, and never patch it. But that’s not cheap anymore.

    That’s ok, we can get along without them. I, however, am claiming t, n, s, h, r, d, l, c, and m. In that order.

    Re: Out of my league

    In the seventies, I not only had a Devastator, I had a first-run Exterminator. It was pretty player-grade, though - but it had tone to die for. I later traded it for a Firebird X. Stupid move.

    Re: Out of my league

    Fools! The first 23 Shmergels had a ‘c’ in them. He changed the name to hide his German background. A genuine ‘Schmergel’ is worth twice a Loar!

    He calls it 'over nut' position.
  11. Re: Tonedexter wavemaps for mando and mic position...

    No, using mismatched tonemaps won’t make your Rogue sound like a Loar. Think of it like this: the TD listens to the mic and pickup sounds, and figures out how to get from one to the other. To use an...
  12. Re: What is the most mandolins you've owned at one time?

    Well, I'm not very far along in this mandolin game, so I only have one, a Silverangel. But I can imagine an oval hole, as well as a mandola some day.

    I've been reducing my guitar inventory...

    Just do it. My skills certainly donít justify it - but since I got mine I hardly play anything else (meaning guitar, banjo, or whatever) and I have improved quite a bit. Owning an inspirational...

    Sure looks that way. Iíll have to check, but it sure it was controlled by an improper scan code.

    Yeah, I like clean, simple designs.

  18. Re: The long, arduous journey of Silverangel #438 - with a happy

    I live on the German border - it would be, shall we say, poor taste here. Too similar to other words.

    I'm pretty sure the guys in Swaziland wanted to finally learn what the airspeed velocity of a...
  19. The long, arduous journey of Silverangel #438 - with a happy end

    I am not a mandolin player.

    I play a bit, but it’s a sideline. I play a cheap pressed-top instrument. It’s fine.

    I’ve been listening more and more to music with mandolin, and got the bug, and...
