There's some effects stuff all up in here....so this seems the forum to be...... Anyways, the wonderful world of recording, soundscaping, and (my main goal) replacing all of my pedals with a midi setup has not been kind to me. I'm getting back into pedals. I'm just a button masher. And need my knobs to turn. I think everyone know my story (wife and I had quintuplets in September). So five babies means some gear needs to get moved on the cheaps. Here's a pretty much ready to run setup for anyone thinking about taking this venture. It's an Asus N53SN RH72 which I have upgraded to 16GB of RAM and have optimized to trim the fat and get the latency down as low as possible. Really great computer. Intel Core i7 processor. Looks pretty much mint. No issues or bugs or anything. The only time I got online was to do software upgrades for Ableton Live 8, Max for Live, and Native Instruments Elements. Oh yeah, so this thing comes with Native Instruments Elements Basic, an unlocked version of Ableton Live 8, and unlocked Max for Live. That's enough software to pay for the price I'm selling this for. It's like the laptop is free. Guitar Rig 5 (actually my faorite of them all) is installed.....but if I sell the Rig Kontrol separate, I might have to uninstall it....not sure on that one. I'll check. Or you could just buy the whole bundle. That would be easiest. But really, this laptop hasn't browsed the internet. Hasn't been to youtube, facebook, TGP, talkbass, or even ilovefuzz. Just stripped it of the needless bloarware, added the listed software, and connected the wifi long enough to do the upgrades. Guitar Rig 5 w/ Rig Kontrol. This thing is where it's at. A fast audio interface built inside a nice rugged midi controller. Great price. Came with the Guitar Rig 5 software, so that's how I'll sell it. Like I said, this is pretty much everything a person would need to get started with sound scaping or recording. I mean....if you want to record vox and drums, you'll need a lot more, but this is great for guitar and bass. I even have a really long USB cable for it that I bought (unopened) I'll throw in. All wires, cables, adapters are here and will be included. Laptop [DEL]$750[/DEL] $675 Guitar Rig 5 w/ Rig Kontrol $295 Everything together (how I prefer to sell it) [DEL]$970[/DEL] $950 All prices are paypal (NOT gifted) shipped CONUS. I will entertain all trades....but I'm picky. Feel free to shoot me any questions. Looking for: Dr Sci Tremolessence Some form of Dual Exp Pedal Cioks AC10 Infanem Faye Sing DMB Lunar Echo EAR AD4096 Those are my main interests but I'll entertain anything.
