Hello follow MOD users
I sincerely hope every one of you is doing well and managing to stay safe in such delicate times.
The current situation, although dreadful in many ways, provides an opportunity to create a bit more and I wonder what are our distinguished members working on.
The one thing that unites all members of the MOD community, is that we are all creators. The company creates devices, the developers create plugins, sound designers create pedalboards and some of us even create music
I’d like to share some of what I’ve been playing with on during these times of confinement and I’d like also to hear from the community about how’s everyone juggling with life during this COVID-19 outbreak.
For my weekend I’ve brought the guitar from the office to give it some love - in Brazil we say that the house saint makes no miracles - and also play around with some of the upcoming plugins.
The new cabinets from Forward Audio are total killers.
I’m really into the mid-70’s Zappa guitar sound, with the distorted wah and with this as an inspiration I have a new “favorite” pedalboard using:
- OverTone WAH-1
- GX Alembic
- GX CreamMachine
- Forward Audio Marshall
- ArtyFX Roomy
It rocks so well. The response of the WAH-1, CreamMachine and faIR Cabinet are quite impressive. Once the Forward Audio cabinets are online I’ll share it.
I’ve added some sequenced drums and, with the aid of the ALO Looper, one can have so much fun
At my place, I need to take care of two young boys and make sure they do not kill each other while I work. I’ve recruited the two for a hip-hop duo, the MODie Boyz, and it seems to be going well. The punk attitude is surely there I’ll try to share something audible soon.
I am a firm believer that art is what protects mankind from madness. In days like the current ones, when we feel so vulnerable and our daily routines have been totally broken, I find that playing or listening to music is not only pleasant but essential to survival. With this thought in my mind, I hope that what we do at MOD is helping musicians to make through these times of uncertainty.
What about you dear MOD people? What are you guys up to?
Shall we share our pedalboards seriously?
