Re: Behringer

I use the G-major Effects Processor in my rack and control it with a Rocktron MIDI Mate. Works really good. Was $400 for the G-major (or you could go G-Force but that's over $1000), but it saves me from having 20 pedals and it's easy to customize and create effects

Re: Speed of light (piano arrangement)

To me it sounds like was programmed and then recorded through a keyboard - hence not actually being physically played

Could be wrong, but just sounds fake

Re: The next Album

I don't think the new album was bad, just too many forgetable songs. United and Maniac Dance were the highlights for me. United for it being an awesome midtempo number and Maniac Dance for just being in your face and different for them. I also really like The Land of Ice and Snow. However, many of t...

Re: Has any one tabbed the new strato songs?

It's really not that hard to figure out most of the songs since they're so 'simple' on the new album. The solo maybe too hard for you to make out, but just train your ear and it will better you as a player

Re: Show in Springfield, VA USA Tonight...

That's why you should wear ear plugs. Can get some good ones that aren't just big blobs of plastic, but that actually let in the good frequencies while blocking the bad.

I don't care how unmetal you feel, do you really want to damage your hearing, or have ringing in your ears the rest of your life?

Re: Stratoplaigarism?

Indeed - is the band doing like a tribute to Strato in their song? Kinda like how some bands will put in a classical solo to pay tribute to a classical song. Still, that is definately Eagleheart in there. Same rhythm timing and everything. Another good copycat of Strato example is Stratovarius - Pla...

To whomever said the comment about it being hard to get good songs about what went on... IMO, Nightwish's Century Child is by far the best album they've done.
