Re: Vai.com News | Design a Jem. Win the Guitar of Your Drea

Ohh, that's right :/ today morning I tried posting another entry but it bounced back... I guess we are out of luck, unless there's a third email address they accept submissions for.

Happy Vai Day!
I spent today doing the ten-hour-workout using white pics with golden Vai logo :lol: but it's just a coincidence, although it's 7/7/7 today (a lot of people are getting married today as well, perhaps they think it brings good luck :P )

Alien Love Secrets on steroids does sound interesting... I guess we can wait for the Real Illusions Part II if there's something as enthralling as ALS on steroids in the air. However, ultimately you should follow your soul and inspiration by doing just what comes naturally. - Markus V. _____________...

I have it.
It has some really cool songs on it, but some of the songs are a bit "weaker". I have actually written a review of it.

Robinson is definitely talented guitarist

James Robinson is indeed a great guitarist. I had the pleasure of reviewing his (as well as Neil Schon's and Billy Sheehan's) latest albums. Robinson's new album is just great. If you (other people of this forum) haven't checked him out yet, I believe it's time now... In case you're interested about...

I have most of their work... and their members sideprojects etc.
Don't know if I like the direction they're heading, but at least they have composed some really great songs in the past...
By the way, James LaBrie's work on Frameshift is great... different from DT.

Yeah, I forgot that... but you have to register for their newsletter... I'm sure not everyone who's into guitar music has enrolled for the FN newsletter. Well, as Steve said in his update: He's going to postpone the release date of the new album to do some interviews and radio/TV-shows as promotion....

Does Favored Nations promote their artists?

Hi... I'm wondering about FN's promotion. I've seen couple of their CD's advertised in guitar magazines, but I haven't found any sites that have their albums reviewed... I actually contacted them about promos, but I've never received any response. Maybe FN's policy is not to print any promos. It's a...

Due to new technology the PCI standard will go away... (I read about it few months ago) I know that USB cards have long latency and therefore they aren't good... USB 2.0 is much faster and better... But the card you've got is really good... I used to have 200ms latency as well (I have crappy Sound B...

Congratulations on your new card...
Actually I've been thinking about getting a new sound card myself... But I guess I'll wait as the PCI slot cards are soon to come obsolete...
