yes the discussion was helpful and intense! :)
i have no problem with using laptop. i use and have used nearly every software ( max, pd, metasynth, soundhack, audiomulch, csound, supercollider, cubase, protools etc ) on the sound design market. at the moment i have 3 setups.
1- acoustic guitar and laptop running audiomulch
2- electric gtr and laptop running audiomulch and pd ( have just started this setup )
3- and electric guitar and no laptop setup.
my no laptop setup has a very specific sound. i use eclipse, fireworx, mpx100, zvex ringtone, ehx pitch shifters and moog pedals extensively. all i want to get rid of at the moment is marshall jmp, mxr chorus, phaser and flanger pedals. ( for travels, in studio it is no problem to have lots of hardware equipement ) so if i can find a very good modelling equipment with modulation effects, that would be great. thanks for your suggestions, will look into all of them.
thanks and best.
