    A year ago today....

    I never talked about EVH a lot when he was alive I guess…. At least I didn’t think I did. The day he died I got a bunch of texts and phone calls letting me know he had passed…basically consoling me. Didn’t know the guy personally obviously, but his music connected us in ways… it was weird. I...

    Right on! Appreciate the thoughts and feedback guys… As far as the digital stuff having caught up…to expand on that a bit: Unless I’m misunderstanding, which is likely, with the Load/IR scenario your amp signal is tuned into 1’s & 0’s, like that of a digital rig. It’s then played back to you...
