Hi Matt.

I'm new here too.
You gotta lot of nice gear. And you build a lot of nice stuff too!

It's funny, I have a ton of tube amps and analog pedals but for most of the TV, vid game and movie session work I do I actually use an old (vintage laugh.gif) POD 2.0. I've learned which 5 amp models really end up sounding good coming out of a TV speaker system of laptop speakers. I'll also gladly play through any of the studios/engineers software. I like amplitube (I've used it for years so I'm familiar w/it). I've also found that the better the converters and word clock the better the models sound. Also just being able to plug into a good DI/Pre helps things immensely (that's a pre req for old school tape recording too).

Here's a bunch of 'gear shots' (yes, I consider pizza gear)...

Firstly, wow...Nice setup and clips...I love your selection of instruments and amps...And yes, pizza is one of the more important pieces of gear one needs...

I hear a lot of great things about GR5 software for recording...But it sounds like you have the tools to nail your niche market already! The CD I posted is actually almost all PODxt...That was before I was swept away by MTS...

Anyway, awesome setup and I'm sure we'll have much to discuss... smile.gif

Thanks. It is my dream room too! Although I spend a lot more time on working on amps than I used to...

What kind of gear do you use?

Well, let's say that my use of the equipment is weird a bit . I have a lot of guitars, you can see them in my lessons, and given that I'm sometimes really lazy, I use software amplifiers for recording. Same with guitars - one that is closest to me will be used for the next record !!! cool.gif smile.gif

I'm thinking about one of these ... http://www.premierguitar.com/Magazine/Issu...ack_Review.aspx
A lot of guys out here are using them and though it doesn't make pizza I like the human interface of physical knobs and switches.

@Sinisa - you have A LOT of nice guitars!

I look forward to checking out Sinisa's guit-fiddles!

As for the 11Rack...I have a friend who uses one and knows his gear very well. If you need anything I'm sure he would be willing to help...

I also like the human interface and handling something more than a mouse or touch screen to manipulate...

HI,

I agree that CDBaby is an excellent source for self publishing...

Several songs have been used from that very CD...I sometimes tweak them to meet specifics if requested...My songs have not appeared as theme songs or anything that would be instantly recognizable but they show up in the background with on and off regularity...

My most recent job was writing a piece used on CBS Radio and Fox TV (mainly in Detroit) for the Kwame Kilpatrick (former mayor of Detroit) trial...It's a silly tune that is used as an intro for a couple regularly appearing segments.

And if you want to hear a bit of a retrospective of my older music (including a couple covers for tribute discs)...
