East European plug-in?

Postby comradec » Sun May 04, 2008 11:26 am

I like the idea of this product being advertised by Thomann: http://www.thomann.de/gb/news_msg_mackie_c300z_hotdeal_news.html

But I'm not sure what advantage there's supposed to be in sounding East European?

That would be appropriate, I suppose, but I've never really used the icons much.

Welcome to SOS forum, vespa. But PSP has nothing to do with the product in the advertisement in question, has it?

I've done a bit of googling on this.

It seems a couple of gents are responsible for the concept. Prof. Beezsa Wakks who had the brains and his financial backer Mr Luka Sheanne.

For those of us old enough to remember, apparently Wakks was heavily involved in the 70s and 80s with studios developing the rack of special effects known as fairy dust trolleys. (Usually a very expensive chorus unit and a phaser or such).
There's a couple of references to him being involved in the Pink Floyd recordings, and was responsible for some of the guitar FX on "Shine On You Crazy Diamond".

Fascinatiing- if you've no life!!
