"Ace" Demonstration

Postby rbc » Sun Jul 23, 2017 1:27 am

Here's a short demonstration of both the Dunlop Rockman Guitar Ace and Bass Ace. The effects were added using GarageBand. No further EQ was added:

Great demo!
Nothing quite beats the original headphone amps, though. :D

The original Rockmans and the 1984 family were in their own class. I do appreciate the basic sound provided by the Ace family though. I've spent some time adding digital effects using AmpKit and GarageBand after the Guitar Ace and the results have been pretty good. The "Rocktron HUSH Noise Reduction" effect in AmpKit does a pretty good job of slaying noise, while the AmpKit "Noise Gate" takes care of the rest.

Yeah, sometimes it is nice to have no extra effects.
That is one thing I am not a huge fan with the original headphone amps: No way to turn off chorus and echo at once. (Except for the Ultralight, of course)

I did a more extensive performance and gave the song a name. It's called "Electric Blue". I didn't do a video this time though. Here it is:

And so it goes, I'm already unhappy with the mix. Here's an updated version. I still used my Ace family gear for everything except the drums:
