Sounds great atomic, ur guitar is deffinatly out of tune Seems like the D string is flat love the solo at the end your vibrato sounds realy good too 🙂
Atomic'76Posted at 00:54h, 14 March
Yep… the more I listen to it the more I realize I’m out a bit on the D or the G. :S
I think I’ll lay back a bit on the mids next time around too. I find it a little boomy at the beginning. There is definitely room for improvement…
JohnnyPosted at 23:35h, 13 March
awesome !!!! are u out of tune in the beginning?? if so, u should tune correctly and give it another go cus the tone is insane man 🙂 nice solo as well, please do some more from this album 🙂
Atomic'76Posted at 00:56h, 14 March
Yes I do believe I am out of tune… AGAIN! lol
… I wasn’t even drinking!!! 😛
JohnnyPosted at 02:04h, 14 March
hell yeah AGAIN lol, ur tone is great, being outta tune kinda ruins it, u should do it again in tune and it would b amazing 🙂 also maybe some down payment blues 🙂
Atomic'76Posted at 02:15h, 14 March
I just did Rock n Roll Damnation. Should be up shortly. 🙂
… I think I might be in tune on that one! 😛
……………………………………..but then again… lol
Atomic'76Posted at 02:17h, 14 March
I’d love to do Down Payment Blues! I was actually trying it out earlier but that solo is gonna take some work even to get approximately right.
JohnnyPosted at 02:22h, 14 March
Yeah that whole album kicks ass 🙂 and what mic r u using and r u using an attenuator ??
Atomic'76Posted at 02:33h, 14 March
Using a Shure sm57. No attenuator. The amp’s master is only on about 2 and the gain is between 5 and 6. I find this amp pretty gainy especially for low volumes like this but it seems to sound ok when I record it. An attenuator is on my list of must have toys though. I should be able to get a lot more out of the amp with the master cranked up.
JohnnyPosted at 02:36h, 14 March
Sounds great as is man 🙂 but yeah an attenuator should help……gotta a question that might sound stupid lol…..how do u get the music to play in the background while u play ?? And how do u make ur vids?
Atomic'76Posted at 02:50h, 14 March
That’s not a stupid question at all!
I have an M-Audio Fast Track that came with Protools Lite. I saw them for sale at Futureshop for under $100 recently! Basically you just import an mp3 into a track in Protools, then create a new audio track for your guitar, plug a mic into the m-audio, adjust the input level so it isn’t clipping, put some headphones on so you can hear the backing track well, hit record on your guitar track and voila! Next, once it is recorded you can adjust the levels so they are a little more balanced and then bounce it to your hard drive after. The light version will only create .wav files so you will need to “find” a converter to create an .mp3 file afterwards. The video are the easiest part because they aren’t really videos at all. Just use something like windows movie maker and import the .mp3 you just made, then add whatever pictures you want and stretch them out to last the duration of the song. You can add effects and stuff after too. Youtube itself has some effects you can add to your video too once it has been uploaded. The reason I want to get a mixer is so I can mix the backing track and guitar audio coming out of my m-audio and send it into the audio input on my video camera to be able to film and have a half decent sound in a “real” video afterward. I’m sure there are other ways to sync the audio and video by plugging both directly into a computer but my computer is too shitty to that with. (note to self…add MacBook Pro with I7 processor and 8 gigs of ram to must have toys list…lol)
That about sums it up!
JohnnyPosted at 03:27h, 14 March
Ummmmm ok, ill just nod my head like I understand lmao 🙂 cant wait till I learn this stuff so I can understand the tips everyone here gives me lol
Atomic'76Posted at 03:53h, 14 March
Step #1 go and pick yourself up a recording interface like an m-audio fast track. That’s all you need to get started. This is what I have and you can probably find one cheaper if you looked hard enough.
Step # 2 Get a half decent mic. You don’t need a $3000 mic to have some fun recording. An sm57 does the trick.
This one even comes with an XLR cable! Beware of the Chinese copies though! The real ones used to be made in the States but now they are made in Mexico. There are ways to tell but hopefully whoever is selling them is honest. Use your head though lol if you’re buying it directly from China or Taiwan chances are… 😛
JohnnyPosted at 03:58h, 14 March
I think I got that stuff, ive got the line 6 interface, sony studio, and a shure sm57?? Im good so far right??
Atomic'76Posted at 04:06h, 14 March
Sounds like you’re good to go man!
Plug that shit in and get at it!! 🙂
Check in the software to see if there is an import function so you can add an MP3 as a track. It’s a bit daunting at first to figure out some of this recording software but you will learn bit by bit as you go.
JohnnyPosted at 04:14h, 14 March
LOL, will do man, I’m taking in all that crap to my guitar teacher Thursday so he can show how to mic it up, when I mic it up all I get is a flat line in the software n not in gets recorded?? But I’ll get it soon 🙂
JohnnyPosted at 04:15h, 14 March
nuthin gets recorded lol……
Atomic'76Posted at 04:17h, 14 March
Yeah man, it’s frustrating at first. When I first got the m-audio I was so psyched to record something but ended up spending about 3 hours trying to figure out the god damned thing worked instead! lol To say that it is a learning process is an understatement…
JohnnyPosted at 04:22h, 14 March
yep, I know what u mean, I’ve had all that shit since like October, and still have no idea how to mic my amp lol, been using those shit amps in pod farm 🙁
Atomic'76Posted at 04:25h, 14 March
What’s ur recording software again?
JohnnyPosted at 04:33h, 14 March
sony acid studio, a few people have told me to make sure my audio thing is set for my mic but I’m not sure how to do that so my teacher will show me I guess……is there any software ud recommend other than pro tools, I wanna learn the easy way before I start messin with the big dogs lol
Atomic'76Posted at 04:49h, 14 March
One of the easiest I’ve tried is GarageBand. Only problem is you need a MacBook. Cool thing is they usually come WITH GarageBand on them already! Aside from that they all have a learning curve. I’d go with what you got for now.
This tutorial might help you get started. Youtube is your friend! lol Don’t pay 25$ an hour for your guitar teacher to show you this stuff! lol
JohnnyPosted at 04:55h, 14 March
u may have just solved my problem lol, but can’t try now gotta wait till tomorrow 🙁
Atomic'76Posted at 05:01h, 14 March
Speaking of tomorrow… I gotta hit the sack. Gotta be up in a few hours. Later man! The tutorial is short but it might help get you started. Usually these who make the tutorials have several videos. That’s how I ended up figuring out how to get started with the ProTools. Good luck man and if you have any questions about anything I’ll be happy to try and answer them though I’m no expert at any of this stuff.

KICKING ASS TONE!!!!What kind of speakers are you using??Greenbacks?
Atomic'76Posted at 22:33h, 13 March
Yep. My cab has 2x UK greenbacks and 2x Chinese ones. I’m pretty sure I have one of the British ones mic’d though.
AngusRudd1019Posted at 03:44h, 14 March
nice!!I envy you….lol.Good job though
Atomic'76Posted at 04:15h, 14 March
I was lucky to find those speakers. Happened to look in the right place at the right time and found a couple of good deals. I’ve been slowly upgrading my gear by buying and selling stuff here and there along the way. Like, I just sold my 2 old G12T-75 speakers and they paid for more than half of what 2 of the new ones cost that upgrade didn’t end up costing me a whole lot in the end!
RyleyPosted at 16:31h, 13 March
LOVE the tone man, so raw and powerful! great playing as well
Atomic'76Posted at 16:59h, 13 March
Thanks man. I squawked a couple bad notes here and there in the second solo but I don’t really care. I was just improvising anyway and hadn’t really worked anything out before hand. I like doing that because it’s good practice to find where the hell you are in the spur of the moment. 😉
