Quick, easy tutorials
« on: September 13, 2010, 09:03:53 PM »
In lieu of the mega video tutorial set I'm going to crank out about all things stompboxes, I'd like to do a few quick and easy written tutorials to get some content on the "Learn" page. Is there anything you guys want to see demonstrated or have an explanation of? It could be anything that is a sort-of tip or shortcut, etc.

I think a good tutorial on how to build, setup and use a testing rig would be good to start with. Beavis has a good one I'm sure you know, but a good one here would be good too. Sound good?

+1.  I really like the setup Brian has and would love to replicate it.

Okay, the first two tutorials will be on building a test rig and ordering from Mouser. I already have the stuff to demo the test rig.

I was thinking (trouble, I know): how about a little guide on how to build your own "Inventobox" type thing for about $30? I was working on this a while back with Dano from Beavis Audio, but it got dropped due to lack of time.
