  1. Sascha, though I have other guitar speaker box emulators (via my Axe FX, a gazillion IR's etc) I still very much like the tone of your "speaker boxes", inside Vandal. Question - will this ever be updated, or "improved" upon? Cheers and I hope you are well, Bob.

    Vandal - question for Sascha

    Sascha, thank you for the detailed response. I'll continue to use it for mixing! Cheers, Bob.

    All done in Samp, of course. Hope you dig it. Cheers, Bob.

    Thanks for the kind words. I love doing videos - if only I could get paid for it! :-) Cheers, Bob.

    German summer tour

    The band I joined last year (very old friends) just toured through Europe, Germany being the country we spent the most time in. Never been there before. LOVE IT! I found the German people fantastic; well educated, polite, gracious, kind and patient, not to mention largely digging the precise nature of their speech and actions. Looking forward to going back in a few weeks, then again next year (Wacken etc). Here are the band's future dates http://www.rosetattoo.com.au/tourdates BTW, I'll be taking a Kemper this time - we went through 9 hire Marshalls of varying suitability, which I do not want to do again!! Cheers, Bob.

    My solo album

    I've been in the Australian Music Business since 1971 (I was 14, and 15 when I recorded my first album with a band), but have never before attempted a solo album. I found the journey both incredibly stressful and oddly satisfying. Though in the past my bands' albums have been mixed by people who actually know what they are doing ( :-) ) with my overview and input as a songwriter, I mixed this entirely by myself. Nearly drove me mad! Here are some heavily edited previews, in mp3 form: www.bobspencer.com.au/previews Cheers, Bob.

    A ditty and video

    Here's a little ditty recorded, mixed and mastered ITB in Samp ProX. I've been in successful bands down here in Oz since the 70's, but this is the first "solo" thing I've ever done. All done by me, BTW, which drove me nuts!! In one sense, I miss the old days of being bunkered down in big studios for months at a time and the impressions from other ears. OTOH.......... :-) The vocal is a tad low, but that's mostly because it's the first time I've sung lead on a track & it feels kinda weird. Lesson learned. I'll get the extreme bottom end right later. https://vimeo.com/163813286 And no auto-tune! Cheers, Bob.

    Hey Sascha - Satin?..............

    Thanks mate. I didn't know you used the KVR forum. Will keep checking there. Cheers, Bob.
  15. I know it's OT, however! Any ETA on Satin? Thanks mate, Bob.
  16. So do we take it that Vandal will be no more?........... Cheers, Bob.

    The End of Vandal?

    That's probably the best answer you'll get anywhere unless you can convince Tim to get the team involved to develop it further. Looks like the Magix team already got its plate full and the latest has been supporting the whole Magix suite as native vsts for those wanting to use many of the legacy plugins like AM suite (including the revered Ammunition) in other hosts. Good luck for now. Cheers, AC Thanks mate - I appreciate that. Cheers, Bob.

    The End of Vandal?

    Hey Kraznet. I was wondering, now that Sascha is elsewhere with his app developments, whether there will be any updates to Vandal? He posted a very long while ago that there would be, but I've seen nothing. It's not the end of the World as I know it, but it would be a pity. Cheers, Bob.

    Vandal bass amps VS bass pod XT

    I also prefer Vandal over the POD. I find it sits in the mix better & doesn't sound so "stiff". IMO etc I would love Sascha to continue its development. Cheers, Bob.

    The End of Vandal?

    There is a guy in Hamburg, called Peter Kah. He is riding the dead horse, doing presets for Vandal. Check him. :-) Ta.

    Fractal Axe FX and Magix Vandal:

    You could try putting something like a Japanese Futon around the amp. I've done that in an apartment & it's worked a treat! Cheers, Bob.

    Fractal Axe FX and Magix Vandal:

    I own a Fractal Axe 11, & had the Ultra before it. It's a great machine, though, IMO, it does not replace a well miked, nice amp. There is something about the immediacy of an amp that makes the Axe sound like it's doing a fabulous impression of an amp, but it's telling only some of the story, sonically. When I got my first one, around 4 years ago, I thought it was great & that I could sell off all my amps, but that turned out not to be the case, just wishful thinking. It sounds fat & thick etc, as far as EQ goes, but there is definitely something missing in its attack; that slap you get from being in front of a speaker. Vandal, S-Gear & Onqel are excellent choices & cost bugger all by comparison. If I were not using the Axe for gigs (FX only) I would stick with VST plugins. BTW, Torpedo cabinets are also excellent. Just my opinion. Cheers, Bob.
  23. Hi Sascha. Is there an updated Vandal in the works?.... Ta, Bob.
  24. onebaldguy

    Vandal - updates?......

    Lads. I used Vandal on stage (at 'real", not the local lounge, gigs) under Brainspawn Forte for a couple of years after I sold my Axe Ultra on a PC Win7 laptop with no issues whatsoever. My own experience, not hearsay from another Forum! Cheers, Bob.
