Hey community

I seem to remember Tony saying to me a few years ago about plugging the bass reflex ports (the holes near the tweeters) in my monitors in order to reduce the amount of bass I am hearing in my small room. I backed up near a wall. Does this create any implications in mixing?

My monitors are the Alesis M1 Active Mk2s - I recall Todd here owning them as well.
Am I right about plugging these? and any idea on what to use? I used socks for the longest time but took them out recently because it just looks trashy. Maybe some foam?? Doesn't seem they sell foam especially for this purpose so perhaps it's not supposed to be done.

Hey everyone! smile.gif

I would like to get your feedback on this new track I have written for my band's new album. It's just a demo at present - my drummer still has to record his take (you will hear Superior Drummer), and my vocalist has to write lyrics to sing/scream.

I feel the track is influenced by bands like Red, Fit for a King, and Love & Death. If you haven't heard of those bands, I highly recommend them. This track was born from the video below, as a tone test. I loved the opening riff so much, I had to make it a full song. For this album, I decided to tune up to Drop A# with a low F on the 8 in order to maintain clarity in this heavily detuned track.

I'm a reverb junkie - I have to be careful to dial it back or it can wash out the lead vocal or guitar solo.
So, is it just me - why does everything sound better with reverb?

Do you ever find it harder for you to descend a scale in speed picking than ascending?
I have a fast run in a guitar solo for my song, it's really getting me. The first part is descending. I can do the second part a lot quicker when I ascend. Trying to get it at full speed and clean. I set up a loop to play over and over but i get fatigued and start "tripping" over myself.

It's basically 16th notes over 141 bpm is the goal. wink.gif

Hey guys

i have had this problem on my 8 string for a while now but it's really bugging me because i need this note, but it won't play.

it's the 20th fret on the high 1st string. it skips the note all together - it goes from 19 to 21 and 21. so the 20th fret on the highest string plays 21st note, and it's still kinda weak sounding. you can hear a bit of a problem with the note strength in the 19th where the problem is close to occurring as well.

Guys, what is happening and can i fix it myself?


Thanks.
