    Thinking about getting Cubase for some home recording. Any reason not to? Looks like protool's has moved to a subscription based sales model which I'm not really interested in.

    I believe so, or it'll also take whatever VST sequencer plugin you care for. It's free to give it a whirl, then after a while you get a nag screen.

    wow this thread is dead :(

    anyone aware of anyone who makes an off centre V (like Rhoads V's) with ebony fret board , 24 frets and a solid bridge? I would have thought my requirements would have been pretty mainstream.........

    I'll throw a query in too - what's the cheapest/easiest way to add a hardware effects loop to a software-based guitar effects setup?

    I could see it being possible with a reamp box, as long as your interface has enough I/O and can change how signals are routed.

    For example, guitar into input 1 > software amp sim > to output channel 1 > reamp box > effects pedals > input 2 > recording track > monitor/headphone output.

    thats easy multiport DAW use ASIO and run a pre and post vst/whatever amp/effects modeler.

    gutar -> DAW -> sim pre-amp/stomp boxes -> DAW -> hardware effects -> DAW -> sim power amp/cab/rack -> DAW -> real amp.

    if you have enough ports on your DAW you could break it down even further.

    I have the 18i8, it's a great interface. You can record a complete live band with it and get decent results. The preamps can be a little hard to find the sweet spot, but once you get the feel of them, it's easy to setup and use.

    tax time around the corner and I'm looking at amps. I found something I like but its located in the US so 120v. Anyone using a stepdown transformer or could recomend one?

    I have two of those (one that size and one big-mother-f***er for powering my rack) and have used US powered mesa boogies for the last 10-15 years with no issues at all. That smaller one definitely doesn't feel like 3kg, but maybe it just seems light compared to big bertha. I have them running through a 120v furman power conditioner because tinfoil hat. Mine actually gives me 128v without load according to the furman but any decent amp wouldn't have an issue.

    Can anyone recommend a practice amp around $3-$400? I just need a little one as I'm sick of using headphones.

    My suggestion would be a line 6 combo. Flextone if you can find one in your budget or a spider.

    If you wanna go valve you could look for a old Randall tc50. They can usually be had for $300 on gumtree and pretty decent little amps to my ear but maybe try one out. Standard two channel amp with a boost so they're pretty flexible.

    Really depends what music you're playing but these should cover most things. If you can't go that loud, the line 6 would probably be better suited.

    Thanks. What are the small Oranges, Blackstar or Peavey's like? A Fender Bassbreaker 007 looks good but tad too much. I should probably just wait and get a Marshall DSL40.

    Yamaha THR10X are a great little thing.

    A 2nd hand Blackstar HT1 or HT5 would be ideal.
