Media - guitar
I did a song! The initial track that comes in was just me putting notes manually onto the MIDI view in Logic Pro, but the drums and guitars are both me playing the actual drums and actual guitar. I recorded them as loops and dropped them into Logic's Live Loops view, and then recorded each section as a scene, which is FAR less stressful than trying to play the whole thing in one take. Also, check me out actually playing in time with the drums this time. 😛

Look out world, I have a guitar and I'm not afraid to use it! I'm thoroughly enjoying the ability to plug my amp into the load box and play on headphones for nights like tonight where all the rest of the house has all the windows open because it's a lovely temperature. I close the door to the office and close the window in here and I can rock out to my heart's content without annoying everyone on the block.

My little footswitch arrived! It's so little and adorable. And because it can be used for different things depending on the amp it's plugged into, they give you this set of little stickers to stick onto the front of it so you know what the actual function is that it's triggering.

NOW we're cooking with gas.

Woooooo! I'm waiting on just one more thing (at least until Christmas 😅), an Orange FS-1 mini footswitch so I can switch between the clean and dirty channels on the amp without having to lean over and down to actually fiddle with the amp itself.

Why yes, it IS more guitar pedal-related stuff! Though technically not an actual pedal this time. Keen to see the difference it makes in sound. (Update: it makes ABSOLUTELY no difference whatsoever because it turns out all Boss pedals already have built-in buffers to counteract the signal degradation from long chains. 😑)

Today's deliveries are a flanger pedal for my guitar setup (can I call it a "rig" yet?), and a replacement airbrush needle! I was all excited to get my Kill Team terrain started last week, and I realised that my troubles with the airbrush clogging and spitting and just generally misbehaving were caused by the very tip of the needle being bent. 😞 I'm not sure exactly how I managed to do that, but I'm going to make a point to be a lot more gentle with it from now on.

I know I said this before but MAN this delay pedal is fun! Have a listen to this, I'm just playing quarter notes but the pedal adds so much extra rhythm. (The drums aren't me, I just chucked a drummer track in in Logic Pro.)

The setup is complete! ...at least until my new guitar arrives, and also until I inevitably decide I want more guitar pedals and thus need to build a longer pedalboard. 😅 Man, that delay pedal is such fun. If you set one single repeat and set the delay before the repeat occurs to the right timing, you can get it to essentially play notes in between what you're playing, so it sounds like you're playing more. Or you can set a really long delay with lots of repeats and lower the intensity, and it sounds like you're in a vast hall. Or you can go in between those and just get a much fatter-sounding tone.
