New Effects Processors For Christmas

I've been playing acoustic guitar and singing at local coffee shop in New Carlisle, Ohio over the past couple of years. I haven't really been using any effects processors except reverb.  So I thought it would be fun to put together a series of effects processors and put it in a Electro-Harmonix Pedal Board with Bag.  As Christmas gifts I got the bag, the TC Helicon Harmony Singer Vocal Effects Processor and the TC Electronic Guitar Ditto Looper Effects Pedal.  I already had a four channel stereo Alesis mixer with on-board effects, a Boss CS-3 Compressor/Sustainer Pedal,  a Danelectro DJ-14C Fish & Chips 7 Band EQ Mini Effects Pedal, and a Boss TU-3 US Chromatic Tuner, Convenient Pedal-Based w/21-segment LED meter.  I added a power strip.  The guitar inputs into the EQ then to the Looper, then to the Sustainer, then to the Harmony Singer, then to the tuner, then to the mixer which connects to the sound system.  The microphone connects to the Harmony Singer,  then to the mixer which connects to the sound system.  The Harmony Singer functions much better when the guitar input is "leveled and smoothed out"  with the Sustainer.  This makes chord recognition better to trigger the additional vocal harmonies....


     The finished product looks like this:





 I spent the last six weeks getting used to turning on the harmony singer and the looper.  That's why they are positioned to the far right so my right foot can control them.   I will write additional posts describing what I've learned.

Guitar Pro 6

I asked for guitar Pro 6 for Christmas, and I got it! For those of you who are not familiar with this software, it can be found at the following web location: Guitar Pro Website

I've been searching the web for locations where I can download guitar Pro 6 files.  The best site located so far is  GPROTAB.NET.  The content of files on this site are to be used for private study, scholarship or research only. 

As I listen to these songs, I realize that some of these recordings are recorded using a keyboard as an input device rather than a guitar. This sent me down the trail of looking for an “audio to MIDI” conversion device that would allow for guitar input into a program such as guitar Pro 6. One of the best devices that I discovered was the Sonuus Midi Product, the i2M Musicport Signal Converter (see AMAZON).  I foresee this device going on my next years’ Christmas list!

For copyrighted songs, the place to go is mySongBook.  It's discussed at the guitar Pro website as well. The…

Choir Director at Zion Lutheran Church

I was introduced to the congregation today as the new choir director. I was teasing one congregation member that there was now a "empty seat" in the bass section (my chair) that needed to be filled. To my surprise, he said that he would be willing to join us! Yeah! Now we have 5 sopranos, 3 altos, 3 tenors, and now, once again, 3 basses.
