Re: Orange Amp won't work in the UK :(

Not sure what you're talking about. Step-up and step-down transformers are rated in watts, not volts. :? my bad, i meant wattage, not voltage, of the amp. i think the point was understood anyway though...thanks for calling me out on it... Out of curiosity, how would you determine peak plate wattage...

Re: Orange Amp won't work in the UK :(

a stepdown transformer will do it; a friend of mine uses one in ireland for a US-wired amp. just make sure it can handle the peak plate voltage the amp specifies, and then some. i'd go 3x the peak at least though.

Re: Recording with garageband on ipad 2/3?

not arguing either.. just trying to answer the OPs question with an opinion based off experience, like he asked for, instead of writing it off. I use a Mac and and iPad, and for what it is, the iPad is great, but I'd imagine most people don't buy an iPad thinking its going to replace even a $1000 st...

Re: Recording with garageband on ipad 2/3?

What does a computer have to do with sound quality? I'd place even converters about last on the list after preamps, mics, mic placement, amps, guitar, engineer, and even player. I just personally think screwing around with the limitations of an iPad and Garageband kind of a waste of money. You can ...

Re: Recording with garageband on ipad 2/3?

that alesis dock is actually pretty good, i had an alesis rep in my store a few weeks back demoing it. i think you'll get a lot of different opinions (especially on this forum), but unless you're looking to drop a grand or more on the whole setup, i'd forego getting a used computer and cheaper inter...

Re: Strymon

i tried out an mxr delay, a boss delay, the line 6 delay, an eventide and the strymon el capistan. strymon sounded better, no question. build quality is awesome, features are awesome, sound is awesome. i can't see why someone would knock strymon but still like eventide, they're both digital effects....

Re: Recorded a new tune with my Rocker 30

the vocals and guitar line remind of "cult of personality" for some reason. sounds good!
