Posted on 25 January 2013 by diode

Holy smokes this thing looks awesome! 12 voices and an amazing architecture. I talked with their head embedded engineer and he said it used six SHARCS. Yes, I said SIX.

David Byrne pedalboard art

Posted on 01 February 2011 by diode

Came across a picture of this artwork … Awesome! The idea is that you would have to walk across the pedals while walking into the gallery, making random pedals turn on and off with a loop playing through them.

Roger Linn interview

Posted on 24 August 2010 by diode

KVR recently did a great interview with Roger Linn. Very interesting story. Read it here

“it occurred to me I could store digital drum recordings in computer memory instead of tape because the sampling time requirement for all the drums added up to only about a second. I built a prototype and all of a sudden, recording artists who wouldn’t return my calls as a guitarist were calling me asking to buy one for $5,000″

Heavy Leather Guitar Straps

Posted on 31 March 2010 by diode

The nice folks over at Heavy Leather NYC were kind enough to send us at the Music Gear Daily office a couple of their new high end guitar straps for review recently.  If the style is to your taste they are definitely high quality, handcrafted leather goods. The leather is very soft and seems that it would last a lifetime. They are heavy with all of the ornamentation, and may not fit everyone’s taste but if quality leather is your bag, these won’t disappoint. If they’re good enough for Lemmy, they’re good enough for you ;)
