    Ronan – Long time watcher… first time poster. Keep up the good work, man. I love your videos.

    Bruno – I just installed the Decapitator beta yesterday and tried it on a rhythm guitar track that needed some “oompf.” It really is a very cool plugin and is especially powerful with the “mix” knob where you can dial in a blend between the original signal and the “decapitated” one.

    Assuming you have an iLok, try the beta.

    And no… I don’t work for SoundToys ;-)

    Thanks Ronan! What a great tour of some highlights at the Namm Show 2010! The photography was really great and I like the close up’s of the demos. It was just like being there again.
    My engineer turned me on to your show and it is very helpful. Good work!
    All the best,

    Bruno, Trade shows are bad places to test thing, but Soundtoys makes some really good plug ins, so I am always optimistic about a new product from them.

    Fred, my dulcimer is made by Folkcraft instruments in the US http://www.folkcraft.com. They make really beautiful instruments. I own one of the less expensive models and the work is still very high quality.

    Hey!!!
    You’re havin’ WAY too much fun.
    So, who did all those inlaid guitars at the end? Shades of Mahavishnu.
    The Book of Keys music—That was you? Is it available somewhere? You know some of us have been waiting for some music from you.
    Be sure you tell these guys when you come around that we look them up.
    Thanks again.

    Thanks for the vid Ronan! I downloaded the Decapitator plug-in beta demo and I love it! I’ve added it to my wish list for 2010.

    @Mike… Thank you! I knew I recognized that guy but couldn’t place where from.

    Hi Ronan,

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm by doing this show! Heard you in the podcast roundtable and now I’ve seen all episodes. It’s a great show, interesting and entertaining, even for a complete amateur like myself, with minimal gear and budget.

    Again, thanks, and keep it up!

    Glad to hear an R24 is on the way….That was actually my first thought when I saw the R-16, that A&H should run this baby up a level!

    Nick, How cool to be on the Folkcraft web site. I am loving my dulcimer and saving up for two more (I want to get a higher end model and a baritone one of these days). I am having so much fun playing. I am about to go work in Italy for 5 weeks, and one of the few downsides is that I do not think I will have room to bring my dulcimer. -Ronan

    Ronan,

    Very cool show I’ve learned a lot from you. I’m putting a home studio together here in Michigan. What do you think of Universal Audio products?

    Jam on

    The UA stuff is very cool. Have not used all of it but have enjoyed everything I have played with.

    Hey Ronan,

    I have a decent Set up for recording and am a Drummer. I have been looking for a mixing console that has very good pre’s I was wondering your take on that (was considering the Allen & Heath a lot and the Toft Audio ATB32 what do you think.) I am Extremely grateful for your time and professional contribution with your shows 11 out of 10. :)
