Update to my Guitar

in #music10 days ago (edited)

Since i am still not satisfied with the sound for streaming, i decided to re-install the 2nd Midi Trigger, i removed when i figured out, it's not necessary for live. But as i had so many issues switching between a un-plugged and my re-plugged sound i have put it in again.

If the System works as i desire, i will beauty up the installation, till that time, tape will do most of the job :)

The Midi Pickups are there to trigger Kick and Snare Samples. Till now i only relied on the built in Microphone for the Kick. The 'Drum' sound is always a blend between the samples and the built in microphone.
Here's a short overview on the signal way:

It will take a bit of time to find best settings on thresholds, gain and cross-talk, but the first try outs made a good impression to me.
The 'standard' out of the guitar gets all the processing from the Floorboard.

If you don't have an idea on what i mean by re-plugged, you can check out a the songs on this youtube playlist and the posts i did here on producing the last re-plugged song:

Hope you found it interesting, and have a wonderful day my lovely ones!

Have fun with that. I know some people use lots of mics and pickups on a guitar to pick up percussive stuff and MIDI triggers is another way to do it. I have enough issues just trying to hit the strings :)

Thanks Steve! you know, this might also covers up a few missed strings :D The reason for the trigger was mostly the snare, as i didn't find a proper way to get the wire sound on an acoustic basis. I tried a few gadgets that are out there, but none did satisfy me.
