Ultimate GPS PC Tool How-to?

Hi, Are there any instructions or tutorials for getting the PC Tool to work with a Windows PC. Setting up the physical connection isn't covered in the manual. Separately, does the PC Tool indicate whether the module is running off its internal antenna or an external antenna, and/or indicate signal s...

variety of sync issues with Iriver Clix2

Hi, I have an Iriver Clix2 and MM Gold. I thought I had autosync all setup, but the only time it sync's is when I plug the player in or when I right-click the device in MM and chose autosync. I have items (files and playlists and podcasts) in the autosync list checked. I also have file monitor on bu...

ID:Core Beam noise as soon as guitar cable is plugged

Hi, Just got my ID:Core Beam on Friday and while I am happy with the overall performance of that little magic box, there is one thing that bothers me. The moment I plug a guitar cable into the Beam, I get a continuous static background noise. It somehow sounds a bit like 1/f noise. It is too low in ...

Installing debian x86 for PC partition

Hi, I recently installed Raspbian on an old PC using a new HD and it worked nicely. Now I would like to do it with the same PC but using a hardrive that was previously used to boot windows and store user files. I intend to remove the windows OS and application directories, but would like to keep the...

Guitar Hero World Tour instrument issues

Hi, The guitar is hitting random notes while i'm not even touching the strum bar. I did the switch replacement fix posted on the front page a few months back and while it made the strum clicking more responsive, it has not eliminated the errant strums. I plan to open up the guitar and poke around so...

Tokai?

Hi, Just wondering if anyone has had a chance to play any Tokai guitars? I am tempted to pick up one of the lower priced models if they are good enough. I prefer unused over something chipped and rusted from sweat. If I saw something in exceptional condition at a decent price (under $1000) I'd consi...

What should I look for? (General Laptop/PC Vj'ing)

Hi, I've been looking around the forums what I should look into for a Performance Laptop/PC but I only see people posting their setup and asking what is good and what isn't. My question is more focused where I need to look at. I know SSD is a must have, but what about RAM, CPU etc etc? Does a double...

Can music gear develop problems if unused for years?

Hi, I was thinking today about a pair of FBT Verve 12M PA speakers I bought around 5 years ago. Shortly after buying them, the band I was playing in split up and I have not gigged since. So they have sat unused for 4-5 years. I similarly have some mics and some outboard gear which has not been used ...

Guitars Made in Japan

Hi, I've two Japanese made Electric guitars from the 70's and 80's (so hard to date exactly) and both have been absolutely fantastic. I also have a number of Acoustics Guitars from a similar vintage (ibanez, Kasuga, Aria, Hayakawa and Takeharu) have to say they are great as well. But focusing on the...
