    Cem Ocek from Ocek Guitars interview with a Turkish builder with some cool new shapes

    Cem Ocek from Ocek Guitars interview with a Turkish builder with some cool new shapes

    Cem Ocek (ocekguitars.com) is a Turkish luthier based in Germany who offers very original guitar shapes. Here he is in Zoom interview to present his Synapse and Puduhepa models. He has a very original approach to guitar design.







    The results are some cool instrument shapes very far from the usual LP or S style shapes we see over and over on the market, even in the boutique guitar field. So congratulations to Cem for breaking new grounds and show a new proposition in the domain.

    MIDI pedalboard configuration to drive your guitar software on a computer

    MIDI pedalboard configuration to drive your guitar software on a computer

    In this CAM or CAG gear chronicle (as you prefer), we tackle with Guillaume Jeulin from Blue Cat Audio (bluecataudio.com) a subject that usually makes guitarists run away: MIDI! Don't worry, we're not going to talk about guitar synthesizers but about configuring and using a pedal board to drive via MIDI what's happening on your guitar software on your computer.















    In this review, we use a Line6 pedalboard (line6.com/foot-controllers/) model FBV3. The principle is the same whatever the pedalboard you will use.
