I posted in guitars but no response so maybe here I can find out the answers I need to complete the setup of my studio, I thought that if I listed it's contents then experts could disect it and tell me what to trash and what to get to better it, thanks in advance Custom Jem (luthier built) Custom Iceman (luthier built) Custom Mockingbird (luthier built) 7 string Custom Shop B C Rich Bich (This is by far my fave, I still drool 1 yr on after buying it) 6 string Custom Midi Bich (Just a platinum with the GK2A/GR30) 6 string Custom Shop Warlock DS 1 Line 6 pod Korg ampworks Tube works blue tube 2 dual preamp Custom tube dual preamp Boss de 200 Ashton 8 channel mixer Edirol ua 25 soundcard Event alp5 monitors 64 bit amd Yamaha an1x Korg esx 1 So it looks like I have scored an alesis micro EQ and a boss RRV 10 for $170aud, my questions are Where do I place these in order with my DS 1? I hear putting reverb before distortion is paramount. if so why? do I place the ampworks after the tube preamp, if not where in the chain does it belong? I have 1 pair of monitors presently, is it advantagous to have two sets, or is that a waste of time? my UA 25 seems to be picking up interference from the computer but only on the left channel, why? and how do I rectify this annoying mozzie?
