I'ts been a while since I've been active around here, although I frequent the forums reading posts I find interesting.
Many things have happened since I spent all my days here. Guitars have come and gone, I've spent some time in a studio recording/mixing a Black Metal band (Incipit) which will release their EP this summer. 43 audio tracks per song, so mixing will take some time
My Nik Hubers and Tom Anderson guitars are gone, as well as a few others.
I'm currently the proud owner of a Gibson Custom Shop ES-137, Gibson GOW #33 Les Paul Classic Antique, and a Martin Custom Shop 00-15M (with upgrades). These will be be my workhorses for a long time, great guitars for any use.
I'm also in the middle of restoring my old Fender Partcaster, which is in serious need of attention, hehe..
More on that later..
My amps are all gone as well *poof*, except for my Hall Amplification Little Devil.
That's one great studioamp, holy moses.. If you ever get the chance to try one out, do it
As for pedals, I've rid myself of most of them as well, only keeping a few favorites.
Less knobs, more playing!
When I'm done mixing the Incipit EP, I'll begin recordng my own stuff again.
I have quite a few songs ready, but I need some lyrics on most of them, so hopefully I can begin recording this summer.
Everything from Pop to Heavy Metal, so I'll need to freshen up my skills.
I haven't stopped playing at all, but the last months have been more serious than I've ever been so that's good
So... how is everyone?
Everybody's been practicing their heart out, making me look like like an idiot when I post something here again?

What are your favorite mixing plug-ins, and why?
I'm sure some of you mix your own songs right?
So... what are you using?

This friday I'm leaving for Prague to attend the Sonisphere festival there.
The line-up is amazing: Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, Megadeth, Alice In Chains, Fear Factory, Therapy? etc..
Anyone else going? If so, we should meet up
I can't wait

I bought a cheap little thingy from VOX a few days ago..
The VOX AmPlug Metal
It's a little cartrigde with a golden VOX logo, three controls (gain, tone and volume),
on/off switch, red power led, a mini-jack out for headphones (or recording, but I'll get to that later),
a bit of vintage VOX styling and a big piece of jack sticking out underneath (for plugging into your guitar).
It runs on two AAA batteries, and runs for quite some time (if you remember to turn it off after use )'
Great bang for your buck.
Plug it into your guitar, put some headphones on your head and ROCK ON!
It's easy as sunday morning!
Looks great actually! VOX in a box
The most important thing of the whole review isn't it...?
The sound is good, but it's got a high end fizzle going on that I'm not to fond of..
I mean, it's better than many amp modelers out there and that's a great achievment cosidering it's size and prize.
If you plug a jack into the headphones output, you can record directly through your soundcard.
And that works flawlessly, and sound very well too.
I've recorded a clip with 4 different riffs so you can hear what it's all about
To make it sound better, I EQ'ed it a little..
Demo: testing_VOX_AmPlug_Metal_2.mp3 ( 4.46MB ) Number of downloads: 1218
Considering what you get for the price, this is a very cool device!
Well worth the money for shredding your ears to a bloody pulp without bothering anyone
