:shock: She's a beauty, but outside my price range   :oops:

 

I just realized that the Dean Vendetta with and without the "Tremolo" is the same price.  Am I correct in assuming that having more is better, or is it likely to get in my way seeing as I'm a dumb dumb? :wall:

I have one with the tremolo, but I've never attached it because I've heard that using it causes the guitar to fall out of tune very quickly.

Hearing through the grapevine that 4 pack of Alter Bridge is the DLC for Tuesday. Anyone excited?

Picked up Rocksmith Original with cable.  Will pick up 2014 when the wife needs a boost when she get's bored with the songs.

I'm about to delve into Rocksmith again tonight after buying two princes. I stopped playing because I felt that Rocksmith was making me sound better than I was actually playing. Does anyone else feel that way? I cringe while listening to the playback after finishing a song.

Yes. It's one of the reasons I moved towards playing through my HD500 with backing tracks. Because the "perfect" guitar track is laid over top of yours, it's easy to think that you're EVH or something when, really, you're fucking up evey other note. My advice to ANYONE is to get an amp and play through it outside of RS. It'll make you a better player, by far.

I thoroughly enjoy playing both rocksmith and through an amp. Although it's not a perfect solution, in the game I have the music and vocals turned down to maybe about 75 or 80% and my guitar turned up to 100%. Helps me to hear me.

That's a good idea. I think I'll try that tonight and see how it goes.

Well, crap.  I just got this game for PS3 (had it on 360), tried to find "I Believe in a Thing Called Love" to download as DLC, and it's no longer available as a single?  Only in a crappy pack?  Blarg.

I swear it's a conspiracy.  I've heard Two Princes played at least 5 different times since it got released as DLC.

Caved and just bought it.

Looks like it just barely happened on the 8th.  Funny though that Ballroom Blitz is still available  for single purchase.

Rocksmith 2014 PC/Mac version for $24,  as seen in Dreamer's thread

http://www.macgamest...h-2014-Edition/

 

I'm almost tempted to get RS as a digital DL just because I'm a lazy ass...

I'd have gone digital if only I had the space on my 360's HD & if I wasn't such a cheapass.  In my mind, anything digital has gotta be alot lower than the physical equivalent.  Especially so when I double-dip on titles.

And we're getting to the point where RS2014 should be hitting the everyday price of 30-50 (depending on the bundle)

If I played it any more, I'd be all in. Heck, I could sell my copy of RS2014 No Cable for more than the $30 that the digital version cost... I just don't play it enough to care.

 

I want this next, but Best Buy ruined me for paying full price for anything. I may cave this time.

Never thought I'd think a girl with green hair is hot, but... It must be the British accent...

 

Anyway, I love what this pedal does and I'm recording more and more now...

Yeah - the devs are semi pissed off Bout it. Happened 2 weeks ago in EU, too... We figure they changed the release schedule, too. Usually, those leaks are for the next week. We'll see if they do it again now that it glitched in the US.

Damn right I auto tune, rbarba4. I'm a guitar player, not a singer... :) After using my Vstudio to record some stuff (including vocals), I know that I need some sort of help. ;)

I have one in the box (M13), but have never used it. I do use my HD500, though, which is basically a M13 with a foot pedal and amp modeling.

The stock patches suck a little, but it is not difficult to coax some really nice sounds out of one of these units... I use the crap out of my HD500 now that I've learned a little about it.

Of course, there are no stock sounds in the M13, so that goes out the window. It seems like it would be awesome for sheer ease of setting up tones. The set list function is cool - just set the bank up and call it whatever type of music it's set up for and you don't have to set a bunch of pedals for every song you play.


Still thinking about this. Out of curiosity, do you think you'll EVER use your m13?

LOL... No idea. If I ever get into a band, I figure it may be an alternative to a huge pedal board if I get a tube amp and don't want to use the presets that I have in the HD500. It's the only reason it's still around here. Other than guitars (5 of them...) and the pedals, I didn't keep much from my BB bonanza. I sold SO MUCH STUFF... Of course, when I say pedals, I mean the HD500, the M13 and these:

8929B9A7-799E-4F54-900A-8D477780051D_zps

 

Which, retail, is like $1500 in pedals...

 

Fuck. I spent so much money at BB in such a short time... Damn, that was fun.

 

 

Edit: I just realized how... feminine... one book makes me look. Yes, that is "Lips Unsealed" by Belinda Carlisle...

MXR is a  Custom Shop Script Phase 90 w/ LED.

 

 

The EH pedal is a Neo Mistress flanger pedal.

 

I keep saying that I'm gonna get them out and put them on a board just to play with the sound... and then I turn on my HD500 and don't really need to get a bunch of pedals out. :)

Finally getting back some free time in my life, so last night was my first time picking up a guitar since January.

What a twisted mess of FAIL that was :roll:

 

Fire up the 360 & see that I can't connect to LIVE.  Try to connect and it won't take my password.  Takes a while but I eventually remember that I've got the 2-step verification setup, so deal with it and get connected (about 1/2 hour lost)

 

Next, I get RS going.  Hop into Learn A Song and I'm not getting any sound from my guitar.  Check all connections and still nothing.  Switch out guitars and now I get sound on the initial strum but it cuts out right after.  

I go thru all my different connections setups (wireless, wired, different guitars, different cables, new batteries) and getting ready to bust open some fresh cables when I notice the DI portal & figs.  Start to wonder if that could be causing issues.  So I unplug the portal and chuck it all into a box.  And everything's working like new (another 1/2 hour lost)

 

Moral of the story... Disney Infinity hates music!

 

Oh and man... was i rusty
