    Anyone here used Solidworks?

    Spent today trying to create a Diffuser like you see in F1 or IndyCar with the stuff. Keeps being a pain with respect to the surface loft tools. Anyone got any tips? I much prefer Inventor, but the Uni uses Solidworks and as such our Formula Student team use it. So i'll need to nail it soon...

    Anyone else think this seems a bit like 1984?

    http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/01/12/british-prime-minister-suggests-banning-some-online-messaging-apps/?_r=0 I can see where they're coming from, but banning encryption would be a risky first step, maybe not in this specific case, but it would set a precedent for a government to...

    saw Clapton tonight...

    And he buggered off after about 1:15 with no explanation or anything. Fans' anger as Eric Clapton strops off stage at SSE Hydro | Herald Scotland For the last song and a quarter we got there was a humming noise from the speakers, but it ain't a reason to walk out on a crowd paying at...

    Super Champ XD problems. Any Ideas ASAP?

    Hi guys, I've recently been playing in a final School Show doing the guitar parts for We Will Rock You and up 'till tonight, the Super Champ has been brilliant. Got loads of compliments on it's sound with some pedals to really add some bite to the sound, but tonight there were some major...

    Neglected Rolls Royce Phantom - Cheapest Ever? - YouTube You think the engine would have lasted a little more than 95k! I mean, there's a SAAB kicking around with >900k on it that was in the news a while ago, and I know it obviously hasn't had the maintenance schedule adhered to but...

    Sample Triggering

    Right, I'm not sure if this belongs here but it seems the best fit area for the topic. I've got a Lunchkey 61 and I must say it's been terrific fun so far. I'm digging the Ableton it comes with and have had some real good fun from it, it seems like it'll be a friend for a long time. But, I was...

    How Can I Achieve A "Spacious" Sound On Recordings?

    Hey, at Christmas I got a Novation Launchkey that came with Ableton Live Lite and I've been messing around with it and found I really like it, it's easy to use and intuitive etc. I'm hoping to start a band of my own soon playing material I'm writing and as such would like to record demos of my...

    Got some sets of these.

    Just got some sets of these I've had the Green ones before and liked them, and they do get noticed. They sound bright but good and they do look awesome. Saw them on Mal's guitar he had in his sig for a while, asked what they were and that's how I found out about them, so I gotta extend a...

    Thought Question of Sorts...

    Right, I was just wondering about this. If you were selling a vintage Les Paul, and you had two offers, one from a great player who plans to play the living hell out of the guitar, maybe even tour with it, and one from a collector who'll probably never touch it but will preserve it well, who...

    Anyone Know Anything About These Amps? Fender '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb.

    Anyone know anything about these amps? They've Silverface and they apparently have less negative feedback and more gain to give better touch response and more grit. Also valve reverb and tremolo on both channels sounds cool, and they say it has a Bassman tonestack in the custom channel. Looks...

    The 787.

    What you guys think of it? I know quite a few of you are in aviation, what's your opinion. In the last two days, one has caught fire at Heathrow, and the inaugural Thompson 787 flight had to return to base due to "technical issues" Think it'd be interesting to hear what y'all think about...

    Always Online DRM.

    Well, it's become quite a hot topic recently. Always online DRM. I know there are quite a few gamers on here, so i thought it'd be an interesting discussion. Basically, always online DRM means you must always have an internet connection to your console/PC, or the game in hand will just die...

    Man, I wish I could sing.

    Damn, I wish I could sing. Just sound hoarse and can't hold pitch. Wish I could do it though. That is all.

    Baffles.

    Right, I know that people are always complaining about the sound guy wanting everything turned down, so I've seen people use baffles and also turning amps around to face the back of the stage to try and keep them happy. Does this actually work? As in are they asking for the stage to be quiet...

    Any difference between valve manufacturers??

    Well, the valves In my Super Champ XD have finally gone. They gave a good 6 years of service so I can't complain. Anyway, I don't believe my ear is good enough to tell the difference between valve makers in tone, but I was wondering if there are significant differences between different valve...

    How much would say this'd be worth?

It sounds great, and I'm not looking to shift it, just I want to get a nice secure pedal board, and I'm wondering how secure it should be :D How much would you say, It's in decent condition, all the paint is there etc, seen far...

    Could you Make a Cabinet out of Plexiglass?

    Right, may seem like a strange question, but could you in theory make a cabinet out of Plexiglass? It's strong, and if you made the baffle out of it, you'd have a cool see through amp. Could see the valves glow etc, and it'd make you stand out on stage which is what any artist peddling originals...
