    One of the many ways I could say thanks from the numerous heaps of information packed in this forum, I deceived to start writing an informational blog dispelling myths and going over many of the tech based stuff people ask on a regular basis.

    The first post was based off of Corvus Audio and a manufacturing decision that I made, it is psychological discussion of how the other senses interfere with how you perceive sound and how I got a wild idea when making stompboxes.

    In the next coming weeks I will be doing video reviews, vlogs, among other things, possibly an in depth mixing tutorial and other music production philosophies.

    It will be a place where I put out all my ideas and tech what I know, things that I don't make a thread about because I feel the topics may to too trivial to spam new threads for.

    I am open to sugesstions of blog topics and I will take questions that I can answer for future blogs or even videos. PM me or throw me an email.

    Already set for demos, reviews and general tech talk:

    Avatar G412 Cabinet
    Agile Interceptor Series
    Peavey 5150 MK I
    LTD line guitars
    PRS Mike Mushok Baritone Guitar
    Corvus Audio Loadbox
    Corvus Audio DI+

    Just the gear I have handy at the moment. If anyone in the Sacramento or NorCal area wants to loan some gear for reviews and get a free plug of choice, name, band, music, etc. again pm or email me.

    Another one is now up

    Active vs Passive

    Tomorrow I will be post a part two detailing the benefits of transformerless active DI and Reamp devices and transformerless unbalanced to balanced and balanced to unbalanced converters. I will post it here when it is up.

    I would really like to get sine, triangle and square wave sweeps by those who have other DI boxes. I can do a comparison between straight to the guitar and the DI/Reamp combo. Frequency analysis between different devices would still be nice.

    And another one is up, have seen this topic come up a few times with people asking about dB, well I decided to talk a little bit how that all works. Maybe tomorrow there will be a story on how impednaces work for speaker cabinet and why tube amps need loads on them among other detailed rants on the topic.

    Thanks man. I enjoy writing them even though it is hard coming up with ideas that aren't already beaten to the ground. I guess I will go over other things as well, like how overdrive pedals work and their uses and what not.

    I am always looking for suggestions as to what to write about, what to explain to help out the community.
