  1. I always enjoy the glee with which this particular scene seems to exude when they're ripping the shit out of anyone who dares to show some enthusiasm for music and their part in it. What makes any of you think you can usefully comment on some lad's song? You're not exactly prominent or succesful songwriters yourselves, are you? The old saying says it all. Those who can't.....become critics. Long live the musically autistic. Down with talent.

    Close. I'm Stu's son. I guess he knows you then. Yep, stairs are a bitch.

    Elgin city's function room has a good sound. Not huge, but a decent stage. They are also amenable to letting it be used for gigs. Don't know at what cost though.
  4. Here's an equation that explains it all. Coldplay=commercially and artistically successful/ therefore/Aberdeen Music Musos=fucking hate them. To apply equation to other successful acts, simply replace "coldplay" with the band of your choice.
  5. My problem with the death penalty is that if you hang someone then when eveidence 15 years later proves they were innocent after all, there's no going back. At least you can compensate someone who's wrongly convicted for spending 15 years in jail if he's alive. And why do we jail people for non payment of fines and fraud anyway???
  6. Dynamic mic pointed where the neck joins the body. Overhead condeser pointing over your shoulder. Play and move mics till the sweet spot is found....you'll know it when you hear it.
  7. Fucking nonsense. I simply hate all the jealous negativity that's ingrained in this tiny, tiny, insular part of aberdeen's music scene that posts here. And it is tiny. The scene as you persist in calling it, is much bigger and encompasses so much more than the inward looking music fascists that seem to gravitate toward this board. Compare this forum with HUBL for instance. So I tell you what....YOU fuck off.
  8. From the posts so far, I'd say that , without even hearing the band, stayover must be going somewhere and getting some attention. Each and every time an aberdeen band starts to raise it's game above the rest of the shite, the snipers and green eyed monsters crawl out from under their rocks to slag them off and bring them back down to their level. Just remember guys, success and competence and talent are alien to most of the posters on here and if you display any of it, you will be attacked, shunned and critised. It's jealousy pure and simple, the same jealousy and hatred of success that leads them to attack just about every mainstream band simply because they make some money and people actually like to buy their records. Rise above it. It means you're doing something right. Flash too.
  9. I agree. They're very useful if you're using wedge monitors, which seriously limit your gain structure if you don't have one. However, now that in ear systems are getting cheaper, many bands opt for this instead of wedges and have much less feedback issues. The behringer, while cheap, works very well, but the drive rack is a superb piece of kit, well worth the price tag. Fast and easy to use. You can also set up a room then save it and recall it next time you play there. With the latest noise police regulations, it won't be long before you won't be able to turn a PA up loud enough to get feedback. 85 dB indeed!
  10. Serious systems have serious eq units costing 2000 plus-the only ones with enough definition to be worth having. You don't really need one if you know what you're doing with mobile systems under 5000 watts, providing, as you rightly say, your desk is good enough to have low pass filters.
  11. Graphic EQs are a lot of trouble unless you know how to set them up. This needs a procedure called ringing out and takes too long to type out so I'm not going to.. Again if you've set your mix up properly, you won't need one.
  12. Don't bother. Set your sound up properly and you'll never need one.
  13. Welcome...and just remember...this is aberdeen music...the home of abuse, jealousy, envy, ignorance, hatred, zenophobia, musical retardedness, juvenile ranting and hypocrisy. Don't take the whinging fucks too seriously.
  14. Don't fret...no-one else on here does either.
