Thanks Joom.

Long time until July indeed, but gives us time to learn some new stuff - although Dakota will definitely be in next year's set :)

Glad you liked it.

We're getting together again next July for another bash. The band members live all over the place - me in France, guitarist Isle of Man, drummer Spain and singer London. So it can be a bit tricky to get everything organised. At least it's all Europe :)

Finally found the time to finish Dakota. Alas the high def cameras had packed up for this song, so I added a few arguably over the top effects to make it visually less dull. I am very happy with the mix though: Cubase Pro 9.5 and Wavelab Elements 9.5. Video done with Power Director 16

It's a lot of data Mick - with my 8mbps connection it's taking a while to download the sound library  :o

Got me with Philharmonik 2. Just downloading it now - also used some 'jam points' to reduce the cost further.  8)

Had it changed ? Well, only incrementally. But we were amazed by the huge variety of food in the supermarkets and by how how cheap it is. Also everyone seems to have a Jaguar or a Tesla. Made our knackered old Mondeo look rather out of place! In a nutshell the UK appears to be booming, unlike France.

Maybe Brexit is not the bad idea everyone is making out? I got into a conversation with a flower importer who told me he had cancelled his contracts with the Dutch and was buying instead from Kenya - he now doesn't have to worry about what will happen next year one way or the other, and he says the Kenyans are cheaper too. I wonder how many other continental firms will suffer because of Brexit as clearly this chap's Dutch supplier is already doing?

Hot here too, can't really do any work outside after 10 am or inside after lunch. Difference is we have a swimming pool to cool off in  ;)

Hi Mick,

Just back from a road trip around the UK.

The miked recording was done with the mike powered by my Saffire Pro 14 and through the microphone amplifier therein, straight into Cubase Artist 9.5.

Hope you are not melting too badly this week :)

Much as like Amplitube, and I do, you really can't beat miking up an amplifier, even a modelling one like my Mustang 3 V2. Used a Superlux E205 - a dirt cheap condenser microphone and the Prophesy to add a guitar part to a track I am enhancing. The downside of course is that there is not much I can do with the recorded sound afterwards - but I like the sound of a Bassman overdriven and the Fender models of their own amps are very good.

I know exactly what the issue is - it's because I keep my VST dlls outside of drive C: It's not the first time I have had trouble with apps only looking for dlls in default locations. As such I really can't see any point in reporting it - I doubt it will have affected anyone else. So I've put the Amplitube VST on my C drive and everything is fine.

Later - downloaded the latest iteration and installed to my default locations - this time it worked OK, so whatever they did between versions has fixed it.

Don't know Mick. Haven't had time to look at the forums - lawns to mow, pool to maintain and swim in :)

If you are using Cubase DO NOT install this upgrade UNLESS you select the default location for the VST3. If you don't this could happen: -

I installed this yesterday after using Cubase in the morning. After installation Cubase crashes on opening reporting a fatal error.

Reaper seems to be OK, as does Cakewalk. But trying to run Amplitube produces an error message saying that Amplitube has failed to load - looks like a memory address error (8000ffff)

Apparently RiffStation is now FREE.

So it would seem. It's still not very reliable, in that it frequently gets chords wrong, but it is useful for transposing without having to use a DAW.

I read the article - potential infractions include 'controlled sales to parts of a country' - if that's the case then Gibson are definitely guilty, they've been taking product away from outlets with lower sales volumes for years, as well as other things - even Thomann was blacklisted at one time because Gibson didn't like their LP copies. My local music store is one they have refused to supply - it's all Fender and the odd Ibanez now. Not a Gibson or Epi anywhere to be seen.

General Discussion / Gibson Enters Chapter 11
« on: May 03, 2018, 06:47:25 AM »
Message on Farcebook today:

Dear Friends:

Yesterday, we made a significant announcement that marks the next phase of Gibson’s long and storied history. We are re-focusing the Company on the manufacturing of world-class, iconic musical instruments and the continued development of the global Gibson brand, by reorganizing around its core businesses in the Musical Instruments segment. Gibson has reached a Restructuring Support Agreement with its majority stakeholders that clears the way for the continued financing and operations of the musical instruments business.

To implement the agreement, the Company filed today to reorganize under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in Wilmington, Delaware. This will allow our Company to continue to design, build, sell and manufacture Gibson’s legendary guitars and instruments without interruption.

We are making every precaution to ensure normal operations for our valued customers. You will very likely not notice any change at all. There will be no change to inventory, pricing or quality of our guitars, musical instruments and Pro Audio. We intend to focus the same amount of time, money and energy in designing and building the best guitars, instruments and Pro Audio equipment that Gibson is known for.

As the Company moves through this process, which we will work to conclude as quickly as possible, there are several important facts you should know and understand about the Chapter 11 process:

• Gibson Brands is not going out of business. The legal process is being used to implement a reorganization of the Musical Instruments division, not liquidation.
• The filings do not change pricing, inventory, ordering or delivery timing of our guitars, musical instruments and Pro Audio equipment.
• There will be no change to the quality of service and support our customers have come to expect from us.
• There will be no changes to our warranty and customer service policies.

While we believe we have put all the right pieces in place to support normal business operations, this announcement may raise questions for you. Please be assured that our commitment to quality products, warranties and customer-service policies are not changing.


Henry Juszkiewicz
Chairman and CEO of Gibson Brands
