A seemingly unpolished portrayal of a wild man, and as such a rarity among rockstar docs. Highly recommended.

You can use the full version free for 30 days.

Try the lite version first and when you want to expand, download the full version and use for 30 days.

If you want to buy a full license after that, head over to kvr forums and buy a second-hand license for half the price.

I suspect the "fiesta" reference is associated with the fiesta ware style of glazed dinnerware from the mid 20th century, which at that time included oxidized uranium in the paint composition. Needless to say, the coloring has since been reformulated. If you do a search for "red fiesta ware" you wil...

Some generic common components can be sourced from https://www.taydaelectronics.com

https://www.mouser.com is popular for more special components.

ebay can be good for sourcing specific transistors, regulators, etc. if they are out of stock elsewhere.

Might not be a bad idea to add the pricing to the first post, for the sake of convenience.

Excellent job on this btw. If i didn't already have one, I would be very tempted.

I am guessing they are stereo outputs with option for mono splitting.
Given they have opted for midi on minijack it seems this space saving solution could be in play.

That's awesome. Wish their site was a little easier to use. AKA a drill-down parameter search vs. a huge page of a list of ALL the resistor values. Maybe it can be done and I just missed something though. There is only one manufacturer per component in most cases. Just use the search function and y...

Thanks for posting the demo. To my ear the Pearl sounds "wilder" than the SY-core. There seems to be more dynamics in the Pearl signal along with less low-mids and brighter highs, going by this demo at least.
