  1. Same reason as Dime's tone. When you select such an overboard setting for your guitar tone it immediately sounds completely derivative of the artists who broke through using those sounds. No matter what you play, it will get the comments on who you're trying to be. But that didn't really stop anyone back in the day. As someone who was playing live gigs in the early 2000's I can tell you I played with piles of original no-name bands who were out there using Morello-esque tones and doing hip-hop inspired fx leads (scratching, delays swamped into whammy and back out again, etc.) So, I suppose the answer is that Rage happened to catch on and I guess not really anyone else of note with that particular sound caught on with them.
  2. This would have made more sense as an fx pedals pack. I can't recall ever hearing someone asking about his amp tone?
  3. I would stick the beta 91a inside the kick shell, flip the polarity and use that as your tonal boom sound to blend. Then stick the beta 52a outside and run that through the distressor. I have found that a slightly less detailed percussive sound won't spawn as much gunk when distorted, which should result in a more immediately usable thud.
  4. A bazillion percent AGREED! Also speaking of sadness, does Waves know NAM exists? The examples vid isn't very impressive considering the current quality level of amp modelling. $29 is significantly more pricey than compared with completely free. Why it's an entirety of 29 buckeroonies more than zilch, if I am not mistaken.🤑
  5. I listened to this, so now all of you have to as well.
  6. I had similar thoughts. Quite weird how this move completely 180'd my intentions for what I was going to do with my Harrison licence. Which was set virtual fire to it and never bother to install Mixbus on my PC again. Now that it's SSL though, I can't help but feel a tad "Ooooh shiny!" about it and find myself planning to upgrade to the latest. Even though I am confident disappointment is almost certainly ensured. I might have a problem.🤪
  7. Ha! I see we were posting the exact same thing.😀

  9. This is too true. I regularly click into a manufacturers folder in the fx bin only to experience the startling realisation that I indeed own (sometimes) multiple plugs that I cannot for the life of me remember buying or even using at some point. I guess that's why they call 'em "No brainers?"

    Stop! Stoooooop! Our wallets are already dead!🤑
  11. Best practice is to oil your fretboard with it. Then you get to pretend like you're not deliberately taking it and after, or whilst playing your bass you are only an eye rub, or nose pick away from not shooting the Deputy.
  12. Wait? I mean sure they added it back into the normal update plan. But I don't see anything about them delivering the severed head of their marketing director, complete with the sacrificial-ceremony-ready bodies of their first born children?!!😜
  13. I agree. Their statement is far too vague on just what exactly would qualify the development of something as a now paid for extra. It seems like they might be setting themselves up a nice little slippery slope, where slowly but surely everything but the most basic device finds its way into the add-on category. Or perhaps they will start hobbling features of new free devices and if you want that extra knob/switch/feature (or two) that actually makes the device broadly useful? Break out that wallet! Again! And again... And again... Annnnnnnd again...🥶
  14. So the attached video is a little dumb. Who would intentionally go that far above clipping? But I have to say he might have a point when he asks what else have they cut corners on? Considering Pro Tools touted that one of its improvements was 32 bit float and from the looks of this, they might be lying? I mean it would make more sense if the plugin was disabled or the sound just cut out, perhaps with the reasoning of protecting connected outboard gear. But to buzz into distortion seems to indicate that 32 bit float headroom is not really there.
  15. So nice to finally have the sound of a high gain slo-100 without nasty fuzz, or boxy sounding cabs! I can't stop playing!
  16. A puny 8.2" myself. I can do C to D comfortably and uncomfortably hit E. Probably for the best that I'm a singer and my throat can stretch waaaaaay further than my mitts. I could take about 4 octaves of those keys down my gullet before gaggin'.🤢🤮😜
  17. I agree the marketing sort of pidgeonhole it for the lo-fi genre. I actually intend to use it to help sink instruments into the background. A lot of the time with the quality of samples and synths these days, you make a song with a bunch of tracks and they have so much brightness and oomph that you then have to spend a fair bit of time getting the sounds that are not supposed to be up front, sit back in the mix and not take away from the up front sounds. RC-20 makes that process easy. Sound is too pristine and prominent? Degrade it! Then you don't have to spend time working out how to tuck it under because it tucks itself under.
  18. I was expecting cessation of the aforementioned "the".😉
  19. Most likely masturbation...😉
  20. I held off buying anything else during this season of sales because I do not really need anything plugin-wise. But then I recently made the mistake of firing up Bitwig 8 Track to fool around with. I got it either cheap, or free with something a while back but had only opened it maybe once since installing and cannot even remember whether I did a single thing in it? Fast forward to a week or so ago and I found myself liking how easy it is to set up insane controlled chaos and randomness. It got me thinking that I might just use it for little electronic background stuff in other tracks. After learning it a bit more and continuously bumping up against the 8 track limitations, next thing I know I am on the full Studio version. *sigh* I was so close to making it out of these sales with my wallet still in tact.🤑
  21. With just a little more wetness to the effect and a lot more flammability to the gaseous components in the air, he will be beating bands requiring bassists off with a stick! And probably his hands too...
  22. Am I seriously the only one in this thread who thinks the OP would be far better off saving the money on stringed wood shortcuts and just finally putting the time and effort into learning to fart in key?
