Racking AMPS, Networking Guitars, and New Studio Setup
Slick Audio has been doing some updates to the studio and thought we would bring some updates to everyone on some cool new changes that have been put in place.
Jim Slick of Slick Audio reviews some of the changes being made to the office studio. How to rack multiple amps, with live switching. (How you can use all your guitar amps easily by Racking your amps, Networking Guitars or Bass to switch between the amps live easily.)

Jim Slick, President & CEO of Slick Audio shows you something that we in the office refer to as a Slick Smile. To everyone that does not have the pleasure of working here knows Jim loves his music. He loves to listen to it, he loves to play it. He can play several instruments like Piano, Accordion, Drums (kind of), Bass, but his favorite and go to an instrument is a guitar. When you see Jim in the office tuning, polishing, or playing one of his guitars you get to see that “Slick Smile”. The Slick Smile sort of reminds you of a kid at Christmas happiness that parents know all too well. So we are sharing one of those moments when Jim just picks up his guitar and just has some fun.
Jim, from Slick Audio, discusses a DAW trick dare I say, or maybe a workflow and why and when you might want to use track versioning or take the step to turn each of these new versions actually into new tracks of their own. Maybe a few of you out there already do this if you do tell us more about how you do it. But for those who are not certain about what I am talking about. You are essentially making a new version of the piece you are creating and turn it into a stand-alone track. Seeing is believing so review the video below as Jim helps you understand why you’d want to record multiple tracks or multiple versions. What’s the difference and how you can make the most of your recording time.
