  1. Greetings, chums. I have acquired the above stated hardware and software, with which I desire to record some audio from my electric guitar. However, I cannot seem to get Cubase to record any input from the pedal, nor can I hear any type of sound output from the USB cable that I have connected to the pedal.

    There seems to be some type of sound coming from the thing, because the "DigiTech RP500 In/Out" device in my OS recording settings picks up a single bar of noise when I strum, but that is the extent of any sort of feedback I have had. I am running Vista32.

    I have read and followed the instructions and searched the googles for the proper manner in which to set this up, but have been unsuccessful. I figure someone here might have the same pedal, so any help regarding this would be appreciated.

  2. That was bullshit, shpladoink. You should have been warned THEN kicked THEN banned, at the very least.

    For those who weren't there, Spectreshot put up a voteban on shpla for micspamming for about 10 seconds during his song. It passed by about 70%, and he was banned for 30 min.

    For the record, however, there were only about 3-4 regulars on the server at the time, so it was the random irregulars who voted you to get banned. It's not like the OCR officers had a meeting and decided to ban you or anything.

    Oh, that's hilarious that the guy playing the song was the one that proposed the vote. I figured the only reason it passed was due to the random pub players, but I literally didn't even get a chance to finish typing my comical retort at the vote before it was passed (I didn't expect it to).

    It's not a huge deal, at any rate; just wanted to voice my disdain.

  3. I love how anyone with an [ocr] tag can play entire songs over mic and no one complains, but when I play a single sound clip, everyone votebans me. It is irrelevant that I was the number one scorer that round and was a team player despite having never played the map before. DO... DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHO I AM? I'M KIND OF A BIG DEAL.

    Looking past the fact that I administrate a server that encourages micspam, I find the fact that your low tolerance for cute cartoon noises is rather contradictory to your high tolerance for people with annoying voices that refuse to unpin their finger from the "talk" button throughout the round.

    Just sayin'.

  4. Just fyi classes I am great at: scout, pyro, sniper

    classes I am good at: spy, engineer, medic

    classes I hate and wish would go away forever: everything else


    If you are great at scout and pyro, then you can aim and hold down m1, respectively, which means that you can't possibly be that bad at soldier or heavy, which require those two skills. Demoman is also ruled out because my cat got three dominations on the ocr server last week by alternating m1 and m2 while licking his own balls and whacking his tail on the keyboard.

    Given this information, the only logical conclusion is that you hate bullets and explosives in a game riddled with, yes, bullets and explosives. Would you like to explain this discrepancy?

  5. At least someone is a voice of reason from there. Besides the usual "HUR ATMUH IS FUNNY U GUYS SUX" comments we usually get.

    Can you provide an example of this type of comment? I don't think I have ever heard someone say that atmuh is funny.

    I wouldn't decline an invite from the fightatron because of atmuh I would decline an invite from the fightatron because of all the fags from FA

    You are generalizing. Why would I pick "fags" for my team when there are plenty of likable and skilled players that regular our server? Your opinion of our user base aside, no one is forcing you to play on their team.

    Because that would be a poor decision.

    because you are bad at tf2

  6. I just wanted to say that it is completely and utterly unacceptable that I died at all during this round. In fact, there should not have been a window of more than thirty seconds during which I was not invulnerable.

    I assure each and every one of you "doctors" that the board will be hearing of your poor performance.


    On a somewhat related note, gather your best men. I (on behalf of the Fightatron) officially challenge OCR to a battle of tourneyfaggotry.

    I don't care for trashtalk, and I'm not really interested in having any connection to atma after all the bullshit he has done combined with all of the chances he has been given.

    I wouldn't expect there to be any truly mean-spirited comments; we are extending the opportunity for your more devoted players to join us and have a bit of a friendly challenge. I still don't understand the reason behind all the hatred for atma around here, but I honestly do not care to hear an explanation. I hope that any bad feelings towards him will not stop you from accepting this game invitation.

  7. Actually, latency when recording audio is lower with firewire than USB 2.0 even though USB 2.0 is (a little bit) faster than firewire 400 for transfering files. It has something to do with how it was built. FW > USB.

    Yeah, I was under the impression that firewire was generally faster than USB for this type of transfer. My current sound card is integrated, so I'm not sure what kind of effect that would have on latency, but since we're mostly going to be recording and then tinkering later, that won't effect me much.

    At over $400, Mbox 2 is a bit too pricey for me right now, and the M-Audio Fast Track Pro only takes two inputs at a time.

  8. I am seeking the best way (read: cheap but still high quality) to simultaneously record from a keyboard, electric guitar, and a couple of microphones.

    An online search found me the Alesis Multimix 8USB, but after shopping around at Guitar Center and Sam Ash, one of the sales guys said that the sound quality suffers on the Multimix due to all of the effects things tacked on. I also learned that USB can only carry two audio signals at once, which would be insufficient for our needs since I would like to record everything on its own channel if possible. Said sales guy then suggested the PreSonus FireBox, which has two mic inputs and two quarter-inch jack inputs, which (I believe) would do exactly what I'm looking to do. It's also twice the price.

    Our last album was mostly recorded using a crappy computer microphone, so pretty much anything would be an improvement. However, I figure if I'm going to spend money on recording equipment, it may as well be of quality and last me a while. Right now the FireBox seems a bit expensive for what it does, but may be my best bet.

    Basically, if any of you have used this equipment, I am looking for feedback on how it worked out for you and whether or not you would suggest purchasing it. If not, please suggest an alternative in the same price range (around or below $300).
