Disco Schmuck

Postby Casual Madman » Tue Aug 20, 2019 7:00 am

This audio is the first thing I ever recorded on a PC - used a 1982 DC150 with 1st-gen M22s, "out of phase," using the voice mike propped in front of a little Crate amp. 'Tother day I got a wild hare and found this late-70s BBC video clip (from "Top of the Pops"), and synced my audio to the video. Had to clip a bit from the start & finish to make the sync work.

Gave me a giggle. Hope you get one, too.

Lol!!! I remember that song from my childhood. That and "The Streak" and "We Got A mighty Convoy" all sorta fit together.

So did you grab yourself another 150 after the loss of "Molly?"

I was never entirely happy wioth the DC150, because when standing to play, it always wanted to "fall on its face" (probably due to the placement of the strap buttons).

What I really want is a CS3 or CS6, but can't really justify $2K on a hobbyist's toy when I already have six pretty decent electrics (2 of which used to be my ST300, before The Trade). I should've gotten a CS instead of the ST, but I got seduced by spalted maple, and juggled build to make my budget on that purchase. Bad decision.

The balance must have changed with the thicker body slab of the mid 80's and forward 150 bodies.. and maybe the koa vs maple differential plays into it too since mine never face dives.

So I take it this is a very old recording that you did something with only now and that the answer is No.

Yeah, the audio was the first thing I ever recorded on PC, maybe 12 years gone. Stuck the voice mike right in front of a little Crate amp, cued up the original tune, and played along. Not bad for a low-tech first take, if I do say so myself. The full audio version is on my Soundcloud page, but I recorded it years before Soundcloud was a thing. Was just remembering how much fun it was to jam on back in the late 70s.

As for this one, I was in a YouTube rabbit hole when this video came up. I started wondering if there was a way to get my audio onto it... an hour or so later, there was!
