  1. I can think of a reason... physics. But nevermind, I get it...an artiste such as yourself can't be thwarted by such mundane things as the immutable laws of the universe. You march right on down to the Bowlerama with your Titlest Pro V1's, and let 'er rip. When the guys with the white coats and butterfly nets come for you, just tell them you're "creating", and can't be disturbed. I want a sandwich. Those guys were guitar players? When did they find the time? Fear not...I understand that Pfizer is working on a pill for that. And modest... don't forget modest. You gotta play to your strengths, so don't leave out your defining characteristic. Sell yourself, man! Music is marketing....see ya at the Grammys!
  2. This is the translation of "Where do you guys set the columns at"?!?!?! Of course... how silly of us not to arrive at such an obvious conclusion. Dogs barking can't fly without umbrella... Brussel sprouts. Candle power. Foot. Thursday?
  3. I will forever be mystified by this type of demand...it's like buying a box of golf balls, and then getting all pi$$y and indignant because you can't use them to go bowling.
  4. 210 Main St French Lick, IN 47432 And don't forget the secret knock, otherwise... well, you know what happens.
  5. Wherever he is, John Cage is wishing he'd thought of this first...;)
  6. Lmao... I'm putting this on a t-shirt. Truer words have never been spoken...;)
  7. I wouldn't call it heresy... but it would almost certainly be a logistical nightmare. Who would actually be doing these hardware upgrades, and at what cost?... surely not the end user. Hell, there's a sizeable contingent for whom successfully navigating a completely non-invasive firmware update is a bridge too far, because on a good day they can't find their own a$$ with both hands and a hunting dog.... and now we're handing them a Phillips head and a soldering iron? What could go wrong? ;)
  8. Yup...I have it on good authority (from some very reliable gossip) that the company-wide memo they sent out explaining the decision was titled "Ahh, f*ck it"...;)
  9. Yeah?!?!? Well my dad can beat up your dad, and I've got double-secret quad core processors...I mean, they're just sitting here not doing anything, but they're awesome.
  10. Oh thank God! It's been at least 17 minutes since this burning question was last addressed...if I don't get a heaping dose of wild speculation to base all my decisions on every 45 minutes or so, I get the shakes.
  11. Lol... well any port in a storm, I suppose... one time I watched a guy play 9 holes entirely with a wooden shillelagh which looked like he had carved himself with a Buck knife. He beat everybody else in our foursome... "A" for effort, but I still like the path of least resistance. ;)
  12. This is just my 2 cents, but all other gear and settings aside, trying to get a real country twang out of anything but a Tele is like trying to tee off with a putter... it's gonna look silly, and the results will be crap-tastic. ;)

    Faves on Helix

    On a site that's still sporting a cutting edge late-90's design? ;)

    lmao...tough room today.
  15. In technical terms, your unit has $hat the bed... nothing to do but wait on your service ticket.
  16. Those JBL's are excellent...I have the same pair.
  17. 3.5" monitors are a waste of time and money... you'll get next to nothing in terms of bass response, which will force you to boost the low end in all your patches. Then when you play through just about anything else, and/ or at higher volumes, the result will be a muddy, bass-heavy mess for which you will then have to compensate. Get the largest ones that the room/desk and your wallet will allow... but 5" is really the minimum.
  18. Nice try, but changing the subject in an attempt to make me look foolish because I ruffled your feathers won't endear you to anyone, nor will it lend your original rant any credibility. I never questioned why you wish to delete your account, nor did offer any "advice" regarding the wisdom of leaving a digital footprint anywhere. I poked fun at your comically empty threat to go public and alert the media if L6 fails to delete your account because it's absurd, and it deserves to be lampooned. You wouldn't get the time of day from any third party whom you approached with this "problem"...they'd just give you a puzzled look, and a wide berth. If you actually think that you'd succeed in stoking some sort of public outcry over this via the evening news, or some dimwitted social media "influencer", then you're delusional...nobody gives a $hit. Toodaloo, go with God, and don't take any wooden nickels...
  19. Why not call the White House while you're at it? Surely they'll bring everything else to a screeching halt to deal with it...the deletion of an account on an obscure website, unknown to essentially all of mankind except the 0.003% who happen to play the guitar... this ranks right up there with runaway inflation, COVID, voting rights, climate change... you name it. This is truly the kind of thing that the entire free world would rally around, if only you could reach enough eardrums and eyeballs. Scream it from the rooftops, friend... and the world shall line up behind you. DELETE! DELETE! DELETE! Let me know when the segment will air on 60 Minutes...I don't want to forget to set the DVR.
  20. You've pretty much answered your own question... it's protective film. Practically everything you buy with shiny plastic parts somewhere, inevitably has that same crap on it... to prevent scratches so the customer can have all the fun of mucking it up themselves.

    Lmao... Amen! There's also a healthy dose of "Because I want/need 'Feature X', therefore everybody else should, too". It's a peculiar phenomenon, but it absolutely exists... lotsa folks just can't handle being a 1 in a million statistic, and assume that anybody who doesn't have identical needs to their own, must have something wrong with them. "How can everybody not want this esoteric thing that I think is wonderful?!?!?!?!". There's probably a name for this disorder in the DSM, I just have no idea what it is...;) No doubt.

    No, no... that's Congress.
  23. cruisinon2


    Nope...it's always today. Time is fake news....;)

    These discussions are like a Star Trek time-loop episode. Politics spawned the "Big Lie", and software update speculation has given us the "Big Yawn"... over, and over, and over. "When's it coming?!?!?!" "L6 better get off their a$$ or they'll go out of business" "Blah, blah, blah... insert baseless prediction here... blah, blah, blah... FRACTAL!" Tune in 6 months from now for repetition #8432. Same stupid time, same stupid channel. ;)
