It’s been quiet on the blog but I have been thinking about what I can do for creative projects to have a bit of a change. I think I’m going to start to look at getting back into my guitar and making music but this time it’ll be with an iPad focus. Recording an EPContinue reading “Getting creative”
I’ve actually not bought that much stuff this year but I wanted to share new gear that I’ve enjoyed and the ones that continue to serve me well. iPad Pro 10.5″ It’s over 2.5 years old now and still my number one daily computing device I own. As you most probably know I use itContinue reading “My favourite gear in 2019”
I picked up a Yamaha THR5 as a desktop amp that I could also use to record with. I’ve recorded on both an iPad and Mac in the past so wanted it to work on either of these.

I’ve just got a guitar, amp and chorus and I’m loving it. My chorus pedal of choice is the Digitech CMContinue reading “My simple guitar setup”

Nothing fancy just into my Boss Katana MiniContinue reading “Using Ferrite to record guitar”
I’ve had this guitar since 1997 and it’s got its fair share of dings and scratches. It’s been sat in my garage for years and I finally took it into a local store to get setup. I had all of the switches and pots replaced and frets cleaned up. As soon as I picked itContinue reading “Rediscovering an old friend”
I love this new setup, plug in and play. It’s my battery powered Boss Katana Mini. Great cleans and a useable overdriven tone and all less than £90.
