In my case, i will temporary store current Raper project with all media files in SSD for faster access. Since there is only 128GB SSD, it will soon become full after few projects. One solution for me, once the project done, project file and media files that it used will be moved to HDD.

Steps is easy, click on File -> Save Project As -> a windows will prompt as image above, click on 3rd option: “Move all media into project directory” -> choose the drive and folder to save.Then i’ll those extra media files and project files stored in: This PC > Documents > Reaper Media.

How to: Purchase Gibson Les Paul at Singapore and bring it back to Malaysia

Category : Music Mar 4th, 2014

Many guitar players in Malaysia want to own a Gibson Les Paul in their guitar collection, so as me, i have been wanted to get one since years back when Gibson released Gibson Les Paul Traditional. The Traditional model that placed in between Studio and Standard where the price tag at USD 2,249 (MSRP).

Now, There are few problems to get a Gibson guitars in this country, lack of the “exclusive dealer”, stock availability for test up, irresponsible sales person and overprice charged for whatever (shipping, handling fees, bla bla bla…) they counted in. Refer the LYN forum thread here and here. In short, it just a headache to buy it and too much risk to put on, for a person as me, with a limited budget and only got one chance to make a right purchase.


(Swee Lee Music Showroom @ Peninsula Plaza, Singapore)

However, there are still good guy dealers that can help you to bring new/used Gibson from US or SG, you may try Music Master and the “famous sofa owner” Dead Eye Guitars, they provide reasonable price but still have some problems stated above, such as: you have to order, wait for it to ship over and the most important, what if you just don’t like the one you holding?

Since kinda difficult to get it right in here, therefore i look at Swee Lee Music, the main distributor for Gibson at our neighbour country, Singapore. Swee Lee is the only distributor in Singapore, every other shop that sell new Gibson’s are taken from Swee Lee, refer here, even The Guitar Store in Malaysia. Still not believe? check this on Gibson official website, under both Malaysia and Singapore section: International Distributors
