Hi Tom. Thanks for the comments. I am using a very basic but maybe a little unconventional setup. I’ve tried to get my setup as simple as I can which means I ditched my normal amp. The guitar looses a bit of quality but I still think it sounds good enough how it is and I can always plug my amp in if need be.
My Guitar is plugged straight into my pedal board (more about that in this post here) which has a Joyo American pedal which is basically my amp and a tubescreamer clone and a compressor. This then goes into the beatbuddy. The signal out of the beatbuddy then is drums, guitar and bass (from the beatbuddy) and is mixed for levels using the volumes on the beatbuddy and the American Pedal.
This then goes into a Roland Street Cube which I use as a mixer and foldback speaker. The signal goes into the instrument plug on the Street Cube and then the sound can be tweeked with the eq knobs and some reverb added. My Mic plug’s into the mic channel on the Street Cube and then is mixed for levels with the drums and what I want to hear when playing. I feel I get a good vocal sound out of the Street Cube. I have modded a switch into the Street cube which allows me to use the headphone out as a line out while still getting sound from the Street Cube. This then goes out to my PA which is a B52 Matrix 1000 powered sub and two 8" satelite speakers and I can turn up or down the front of house volume from the sub.
This B52 Matrix is where the great sound for the beatbuddy comes from and the video doesn’t do it justice. The sub really gives it a kick.
All the tracks I use are ones I have made except for I shot the Sheriff and can be found in resources.
