Hello GMCers!

Maybe some of you may have wondered why I was not around.
Well, the answer is simple. I have been working quite hard, to make money and move somewhere else. Now I have 3 new jobs, besides my studies and no time at all. This and the fact, I had to sell some of my equipment made it impossible for me to contribute any longer for GMC.

I want all you guys to know that it was a cool time, I had a lot of fun, and making this decision was not easy, at all.

I wish you all the best for the future! And I wanna thank you for everything!

BE BLESSED!PRACTICE HARD! STAY SAFE! AND KEEP ON ROCKIN!

Kai

Since this is quite hard, I´ll just make a short list and pick two songs for each band wink.gif

Manowar - Hail and Kill (or any other song...)
Manowar - Defender
Iron Maiden - The Clairvoyant
Iron Maiden - The Evil that men do
Blind Guardian - Welcome to Dying
Blind Guardian - When Sorrow Sang
Judas Priest - Nightcrawler
Judas Priest - Pain Killer
Running Wild - The Privateer
Running Wild - Bad to the Bone
Helloween - Future World
Helloween - Keeper of the Seven Keys

i got all albums i know of...including the japanese versions and special editions *g*

romeo had a big influence on me. bought the first album right when it came out, sat down trying somehow to rip off anything he plays because i was so crazy about it. needless to say, it did not work out that well, not only because i was 12 or 13 back then, but also i started playing back then. i remember going to a printshop for a damnation game t-shirt...paid quite a lot of money for it, because the just did not have any shirts :/

... i could say i figured out what hammerings and pull of are by listening to romeos stuff...i still love it all, but back then noone knew of them...so i was even "cool" when older metalheads asked me for example, if i had the new sepultura or wot ever...biggrin.gif i replyed : NOOOO!!! i have the new syx...wanna listen? ...well in hannover noone i knew of liked it took quite a while, until the metalcommunity realized how cool that music is...thnx for the internet, everyone knows smile.gif i find it is also a good example to see that talent can survive also...its not only about making money...

blablabla...back in time metalheads traded tapes biggrin.gif good old days biggrin.gif:D:D now everyone gets the stuff on mp3 for free biggrin.gif:D:D

hats down for the 3 Mikes and SyX in general smile.gif i don´t know of one week song they have...anyone?

well,...I think I will use a guitar in the next lesson. it might have 6 strings and that should be enough for now tongue.gif

seriously...there will be different metal genres covered, since this is what I clearly do best...but also expect the unexpected wink.gif I am a metalhead but I study guitar with a main focus on jazz and blues these days...well I also play synth, and I really do dig some electronic music stuff...perhaps I might use these nice lil knobs on my gear some more *g*

that must be enough of a sneak peak for now my friends smile.gif

You must sing about Hailing And Killing simulataneously whilst being metal.


and not to forget to sing of power and glory...if you have no ideas left go to the internet and use the powermetalgenerator that will surely throw out some cool lyrics with dragons, swords...dwarfs...and true epic stuff...but again the most important word will be DRAGON, SWORD and GLORY...

am i right? hm...perhaps i have to study again *puttinginthetriumphofsteel*

Hey Guys smile.gif

Pavel is right! I use Audio Technica ATH40fs for Mix, Recording, with my Triton Extreme, Pod XT, DIGI 002, Mackie 1402-VLZ PRO and well,... I just love how they sound...never had such cool headphone...and over the years I tried a few because I like doing mixing with headphones better, than using speakers for some reason.

I use both in combination somehow... Well the ATH40fs were forwarded to me by a good friend of mine. A real audio maniac...amp designer and ceo of Kulik Design http://www.kulik-design.de/ Sebastian himself.

That guy really knows what he is talking about, and I only choose by feel...he could even tell me why they sound so good but I can´t remember biggrin.gif Usually I forget about those frequencies analising theory stuff quite soon tongue.gif

I used a Sennheiser for years... can´t remember the exact name. It was cool but not as linear as the Audio Technica, since it was for Hifi usage mainly...but it worked ok for me.

You know, I only choose what feels right and sounds somehow good,... I don´t care for frequencies and so on...but I did some premixes with ATH40fs in combination with my Behringer Truth B2031A speaker system and my friends in the professional buiss were quite impressed...so I thought to myself I made a good choice on them...ans somehow my system seems to work real good "FOR ME"

Like always I have to add:

Try out different ones and use the ones who feel best. Also you have to like, get used to the sound of your Headphones...I think it will not help to buy just a more expensive one because someone told they sound better...you have to know your equipment!

And ah! really important! if possible leave them on for a long time! the ATH feel really comfortable! when you do a mix, it might take more then the 2 minutes you test them in the store wink.gif

I hope that helped wink.gif thnx for the attention smile.gif

I tried it out last night. It is very cool! I used it as a plug in for Reaper. Easy to use. There are webservers that host sessions and basically you just log in and jam along with others in the session. It's a total improv. You can text message while in a jam session so you can write stuff, request key changes or whatever else you want to do. I played with a keyboard, bass and trumpet player. The sessions can be recorded and made into MP3's. It's really fun.

There are instructions on how to run it with your own server but I couldn't tell you how that would be done at GMC. But I bet one of you computer experts can get it done and it would be an awesome addition. WARNING: It can be addictive!! laugh.gif


it would be cool to know how it works ... i tried around but did not get anything going :/ and i dont have time for hours of setup blink.gif

okay people.

I´ve been thinking and working on this already. It was quite an awkward situation to me. And I tell you why. Manowar is not a regular metalband to me! Not only they had an impact on my life, but also I am close to people working for them. I´ve been asked in the past to cover Manowarsongs. I refused due to the fact, I don´t think anyone should ever cover a Manowar song. Manowar themselves have nothing to do with that, this is just my oppinion. This whole "Cover song thing" is something that´s quite new to me. Sure it is fun to play songs of my idols. But to put that in public? Well...and I only do it with songs I think I am kinda like "worthy enough" to play. So I asked myself this: Who am I, to show someone how to play in the Manowar style?! I don´t care that much how anyone thinks about this sorry, guys...don´t take this to personal smile.gif

Well, like I said I already worked something out. But I will definetly take my time to complete this. If I put it on the GMC for you, then it has to be reeeeeeally good wink.gif

If I don´t come up with something that is worth the deal, there is just gonna be no lesson.


I hope you Metalheads understand wink.gif

HAIL AND KILL!

oooooookayyyyyy

the lessons so far were done with the behringer v-amp pro, i changed it into a line 6 pod xt


and now I tell you something about my experience with amps, and in general a bit info might be cool huh?



first you guys should know:

- what you want to do with your "amp". it is a good thing to have an amp that covers "practising" ; "recording" and so on.

- but you also have to know what you want to record how, for what reason and so on...

- you also have to know if you record more professional what microphones you use with what amp your own idea of sound...and that takes quite a while...

- if you are in a band with another guitarist it could be useful to make sure your ampsound will like "match" with the others wink.gif


bla!bla! you get the picture?!

i dont think i am able to tell anyone what the right amp is for him by not even knowing what the guy wants to do with it...well...


if you have the right amp, that does not depend on what brand etc.! make sure you have the right amp for right situation!

there is a lot of amps that can do almost everything. and there is a lot of brands that offer a lot for the money.

now if you ask me, i´ll tell you something about my experiences with amps:

- i play metal on stage and in bands since i am 14 or so. both as a bassplayer and as a guitarist, and since about a couple of years i also sing. my first real amp for usage in a band is the laney gh-100l. i still have it and love it. most of all because it was my first one, and it is quite unique, since i combined it with a certain kind of h&h loaded 4x12 laney box...i did not see that amp anywhere else yet...well...its also fantastic for recording and live usage and so on, but i don´t want to carry it around anymore, since it is my first amp;) and its modded also;)

- for my band galloglass, in both cd-productions we used tons of equipment. but i bought also the triamp of a friend back then to have that sound the amp gives...now about 7 years later i think of selling it because my taste for that sound changed totally. and i can´t find the right mics to let this amp sound the way i want to have it sound on a professional recording...it is a monster of an amp, i love its sound especially in the band constellation with another guitarist, but for the studio i dont like it... since i did not find out how to set up the mics for that one...well

- i used the behringer v-amp in almost every situation i could think of. i first went for homerecording and productional usage with the line 6 guitar port. i used the 1st drivers ever for line 6 guitarport, because there was this awesome marshall simulation i wanted to have even on stage, it was just amazing...so i tried to build something to get it on stage, since that sound was nowhere to be found on anything else line 6 had back then. it was quite a problem biggrin.gif when i installed new drivers for the line 6 guitarport i realized they changed something and my presets, i made within months, sounded totally different, with the latest drivers. i got quite angry...because there was cool new things coming with the driver update i could use also...but i decided to work with version 1 of the drivers, since that was just my sound back then. later i found out that the v-amp offers a cool amp simulation/ speaker simulation that for my taste just blew everything from line 6 away. i spoke to my friends, my bandmates and we started to work with the v-amp in the studio and so on. now, some of my friend knew, i was like the behringer pseudo-endorser #1 and they showed me the new pod xt -live. i was impressed by what the thing can do but within 2 days i didnt find one sound i could use since i dont need any fx bla bla...so i stuck with the v-amp pro. i also used a second v-amp pro with different 19" power amplifiers. it sounded fantastic in combination with the marshall el 50, but i did not want to have tubes in my new live rig since i wanted to build the cheapest rig with best possible sound. so i chose the hughes&kettner cf200 amp. an old thing with a tube simulation. one can only get it in a pawnshop or so...noone wants to have that thing and they don´t build it anymore, but i liked it. . it was cool to use this for coversongs also, yet i don´t like fx so much i had them to get the sound of the original wink.gif

my life rig was:

-akg wireless system
- korg dtr- 1000
- behringer v-amp pro
- h&k cf 200
- and thomann t-racks powermangement...

this setup of rig for only around 600€ worked ok and came quite close to a real tube amp.

i have been recording for pre-productional use, with the line 6 xt, the behringer v-amp / and v-amp pro, my laney gh-100l, my hughes&kettner triamp mk.I , a marshall slash signature, the peavey 5150, different ENGL amps and rack systems and looooooooots of other stuff...live, in the studio, just for jammin around...well...and and and


but that all happend years ago. in that time things changed! i gained a lot of knowledge about how i want to create my sound and so on...but i am still learning!

now my fantastic beloved v-amp pro broke during the recording to the new lesson i am working on and i had rerecord everything...since i traded my second one i had to get a new toy...my choice for lessons and pre-pro is now the pod xt wink.gif



i dont get any credit for telling you guys anything here. AND I DONT like that talking about brands anymore.

but i will tell you what i find good for what situation:



- best practising amp: ROLAND MICROCUBE

i use it for noodling around and teaching and it has a battery that last forever, so you can actually gather some friends in the park and jam out there:D

also these Korg Pandora things are great to practise cheapest way---> used on eBay biggrin.gif WOW A RHYME! biggrin.gif

- best recording amp for pre-productional and also live usage etc.: LINE 6 POD XT

i got this one instead of the live xt, that has the same chip inside. but i combine it with my behringer FC 1010. because it is the cheapest and best solution imo. if a guy spills his beer on my behringer i can easily buy a new one ...if i had the live xt it would cost quite a lot more money...

also i will use that one in the lesson from now on, due to the fact that my v-amp pro broke and so far i don´t regret to have changed back to line 6 again

- best amp ever: Kulik Design GP-1 rig not only because i endorse these, but that amp just is of the chain and out of this world...you must try and feel it, by actually playing it...it is just like no other wink.gif and also it is quite pricey biggrin.gif:D but hey... i really tell you its worth the money... if you really need such an amp

to get a lil overview of what i am talking you can easily click the link in my signature and read about that amp there

Perhaps this might help for now smile.gif


Luv,
Kai
