I think life right now is complete (with distractions) because I got myself some new toys! Last week Musician’s Friend was on sales and I decided it was the right time to buy something I’ve always wanted to get my own hands on. Introducing to you my FIRST ever electric guitar…the Epiphone LP Junior Special. Ideally it’s not the BEST guitar out there and I’ve heard both good a bad feedback about it, but since it is my first electric guitar I wanted something affordable, yet chic. For $99 I was blown away by the quality of the built.
Along with the guitar I also bought a Rogue G10 10W 1×3.5 Guitar Combo Amp that costs less than $30, which was essentially a steal. I tried it out with the electric guitar and I have to say it works like a charm. Since I’m not a technical person I can’t tell you much about the guitar but all I could say is I’m happy with what I settled for.
I also went ahead a bought myself a Midi Controller, which will definitely open up so much more doors for ANY audio technician. I’m currently experimenting with Mixcraft and it works like a charm except that it will cost a bomb once the trial version is over. Any advice on where I can get free audio mixing software?
That’s my entire setup as of July 2011.
