    Re: Transcribe or Amazing Slowdowner?

    I used to use Slowdowner, but switched to Riffstation at some point, before Fender bought it. Fender was giving it away for free a while ago. I find it has some useful features compared to Slowdowner...

    Re: “Banjo killer”? Wishful thinking?

    Not just that - the resonators were developed in a time when the tenor banjo was the hottest version, not the five string. These banjos were played in horn bands. They had to be loud as all get-out. ...

    Re: MuseScore software

    Thx, I've given it a try on a simple lead sheet, and imported an xml file. It seems pretty straightforward for the basic stuff, note entry is quick and easy. Looks like a good choice.

    Re: MuseScore software

    I’ve been using Finale PrintMusic for years, but it hasn’t been updated since 2014, which is an eternity, and there are no signs of it being updated any time soon. It tells me 64GB is not enough...
  7. Re: Getting better at Mandolin by Playing other Instruments

    I’m primarily a tenor banjo player. I just assume anything I do on one instrument will work on the other. It usually does. They are both tuned in fifths.

    I can’t answer your question, but I can give you some data points.

    Re: Attention Silverangel owners

    I’ve been playing my EconoA for 9 months now with J75s. I have other sets here to try - J74s, monels, etc. - but the 75s sound good and I’m not having any hand issues, now that I’ve switched to a...

    Re: mandolin same tuning as a tenor banjo?

    Well, I play tenor (C-G-D-A) and mandolin. The intervals are the same, but obviously the tenor is a fifth lower, like a mandola. Nevertheless, whatever I learn one one, I try on the other, without...

    Re: basic recording setup

    An alternative would be:
    1) Buy a Zoom H2N. This can be used as a recording interface, and does 44k/24bit (I think ... but pretty sure). You can also use this like a cassette recorder as a portable...

    Just in case it’s not known, ToneDexter has a different ‘persona’ for mandolin and other high-pitched instruments.

    Re: Multi-track Recording?

    Well, if you are going to do a lot of recording you would buy or assemble a dedicated pc, and once it is installed, keep it off the internet, and never patch it. But that’s not cheap anymore.

    Re: Out of my league

    In the seventies, I not only had a Devastator, I had a first-run Exterminator. It was pretty player-grade, though - but it had tone to die for. I later traded it for a Firebird X. Stupid move.

    Re: Out of my league

    Fools! The first 23 Shmergels had a ‘c’ in them. He changed the name to hide his German background. A genuine ‘Schmergel’ is worth twice a Loar!

  24. Re: Tonedexter wavemaps for mando and mic position...

    No, using mismatched tonemaps won’t make your Rogue sound like a Loar. Think of it like this: the TD listens to the mic and pickup sounds, and figures out how to get from one to the other. To use an...
  25. Re: What is the most mandolins you've owned at one time?

    Well, I'm not very far along in this mandolin game, so I only have one, a Silverangel. But I can imagine an oval hole, as well as a mandola some day.
