Dhalif Ali: Suhr Classic Antique FIESTA RED Playthrough

Suhr Classic Antique FIESTA RED Playthrough
Jamming with my new Suhr Classic Antique!
My thoughts on the guitar : From the outside, it might look like a regular stratocaster, but the first moment i handled it the even C neck profile fits my hand so well it really felt like home!! the feel of the roasted maple neck was so smooth going up and down the fretboard. the piece i have had some weight to it like a nice chunk of alder. the gotoh 2 point bridge was really stable, it came out of the box with a loose whammy bar, but a few turns of the hex screw located behind the socket fixed it! it was tight, responsive.. it flutters wonderfully! im a huge fan of HSS config with a 5 way switch so thats a major plus, the ML single coils sounds fantastic!

Sam Coulson: Oh Canada - Electric Guitar

A great National Anthem for an equally great Country.

I love playing strong melodies on the electric guitar, It's a fantastic way to improve vibrato and phrasing. When approaching a melody line I often think 'what would Gary Moore have done here'.

Hope you enjoy!

I used my heavily modded strat into my Yamaha THRX10 into Garage Band.

Dmitry Proskurin: Seven Emotions - album release

Dmitry Proskurin: Seven Emotions

Dmitry Proskurin: Seven Emotions - album release. Following my last post I went to buy the album via bandcamp, only to find that payments via paypal to the Ukraine are no longer accepted because of the ongoing Ukrainian Crisis. This was a shame as Dmitry Proskurin Seven Emotions was a pretty good release. I contacted Dmitry to advise him of the issue. He explained to me the problem but was very excited to present to let me know that "Seven Emotions" is available from Google Play

Dmitry Proskurin: It's telling a true story of musical life of a man. This album is essentially my autobiography, with each track being a reflection of a certain time period, making this album a complete story of my life.

Thank you for listening - hope you'll enjoy!

Sacha Dunable, Dave Timnick: Intronaut, have begun work on their 5th full length album

Los Angeles based post progressive metal band, Intronaut, have begun work on their 5th full length album. The album will be recorded with Josh Newell (Cynic) with Devin Townsend handling the mixing. Vocalist/guitarist, Sacha Dunable comments.

"Really pumped on these songs. Overall its going to be a bit more dense and brutal than the past couple records, but mostly still the Intronaut you've grown to love or hate. We're tracking mostly live like real men in a real band, at Clearlake Audio, where we did "Valley Of Smoke" with Josh Newell once again engineering. Then we're sending it off to Devin Townsend to mix, which is super exciting."

The band will also be supporting Meshuggah in Anaheim today, replacing label mates, Warbringer, whom Disney deemed inappropriate to perform at the venue.

Named the best metal band by the LA Weekly, Intronaut, formed in 2004 and have released 4 full length studio albums and two EPs. They've toured with Tool, Mastodon, Animals As Leaders, TesseracT and were the backing band for multi-instrumentalist, Cloudkicker on his first and only national tour.

Intronaut tour dates:

4/13 Anaheim, CA @ House of Blues (w/ Meshuggah)
4/23 Oakland, CA @ The Metro (w/ Rajas)
4/24 Portland, OR @ Mississippi Studios (Stumpfest with Yob, Author & Punisher, Graves at Sea)

Intronaut are:

Sacha Dunable - guitar, vocals
Joe Lester - bass
Dave Timnick - guitar, vocals, percussion
Danny Walker - drums

Also of Note from October 2014:

Cloudkicker "Live With Intronaut" to be released on 11/24 Subsume Part 1 streamed online Preorders available now

In early 2014 it was announced that Cloudkicker, one of prog's most enigmatic and mysterious artists, would tour North America with post prog metallers, Intronaut, as his backing band. Message boards and the blogsphere went crazy over this announcement, as Cloudkicker, aka, Ben Sharp, had vowed the band would never play live. The two bands piled into a van and every night played to an overzealous fanbase who knew they were experiencing a perhaps once in a lifetime opportunity.

For those unfortunate ones who missed a show, the band stopped off at Texas recording studio, The Fathom Tree, and played the set start to finish live and captured it all on tape. Century Media is proud to release Cloudkicker - Live With Intronaut, from this recording session.

The tracklisting is below.

1. Subsume Part 1
2. Subsume Part 2
3. We are going to invert.../Here, wait a minute, damn it!
4. We're goin' in, we're going down.
5. Seriosity
6. You and yours
7. Dysphoria
8. Subsume Part 8
9. Push it way up!

The album will be in stores on November 24th. The CD version is available as a digipack and the vinyl comes in 4 colors and is limited to 1500 copies worldwide, the colors and quantities are as follows:

500 Black vinyl
450 Piss Yellow vinyl (US retail exclusive color)
350 Royal Blue with Sliver & Black Splatter
200 Coke Bottle Clear and Bone split

The album in all its formats along with a Cloudkicker t-shirt, can be preordered here.

Andreas Haukenes: tasteful sound test - in the dark

(I forgot to change the camera settings before recording, thus the very dark video)

The gear is my Ruokangas through a Mooer Black Secret, Xotic AC Booster, handmade EP Booster clone, a Carbon Copy delay, and my trusty Marshall JTM-1 combo.

News: Tracktion 6 Now Available - The Musician’s DAW Adds Features and Gains Power

Tracktion 6 Now Available
The Musician’s DAW Adds Features and Gains Power
SEATTLE, WA (April 13, 2015) – Following a four-month public beta test period, the full release version of Tracktion 6 music production software is now available. The intuitive, single-screen DAW program has been steadily gaining worldwide popularity since it was purchased from LOUD Technologies by Tracktion Corporation – a group headed by original Tracktion developer, Julian Storer.

Widely known as “The Musician’s DAW” because of its accessible design, operational simplicity and affordable price, Tracktion 6 is the most ambitious update of the platform so far. It continues the Tracktion tradition of providing powerful, creative tools that enable musicians to compose, record, edit and mix their music. Many key features have been upgraded while new features and a ground-breaking customization portal have been added. As with earlier versions, Tracktion 6 is available at the remarkable bargain of US$60 per license (US$30 upgrades).

Tracktion 6 includes dozens of new features and enhancements. Highlights include Z-Plane’s Elastique Pro, the world’s best time stretch algorithm; Warp Time audio editing, Tracktion’s time correction tool kit; tape-style start/stop effect handles for audio clips; dedicated submix and automation tracks; comprehensive tagging editor plus track tagging; an upgraded plugin management system; a new “super comp” audio compiling tool and much more! Tracktion 6 also includes MARKETPLACE, a new in-app retail portal which allows the audition, purchase, download and installation of assets such as plug-ins, sounds and instruments without leaving the project currently underway.

“We’re in the process of building what we consider to be the ideal DAW environment for musicians,” explained Tracktion founder, Julian Storer. “This is distinguished from typical DAW’s which are better suited to recording engineers. As musicians ourselves, we wanted a platform for quickly and easily recording song ideas, building on those ideas, editing and mixing them without technical barriers stifling creativity.”
