Far out that looks amazing, Conway! PS Greenstone Club is us : )

I have a Woolly Mammoth clone on the way but it's been in the post for a month and tracking vanished in Japan weeks ago. Potentially lost :(

A few other pedals inbound too (Ditto+ And BE-OD Deluxe) but otherwise saving up for an amp.

Japan is a massive bottleneck for US Postal Service air freight to here. Usually it takes about 2 weeks getting through Japan. The flights come in over the weekend, so could be next week. Customs have been slow releasing stuff lately too.

Mine has been "Departed Japan" since 10th October. You might be in for a long wait if I'm still waiting.

Be really interested to hear your thoughts on the Simplifier. Could maybe do a Iridium comparison one day you're up this way?

I have a Melo Audio MIDI commander that I'm not using. Basketcase borrowed it recently and thought there might have been an issue with the switches. If you want you can borrow it and see if it works for you? Don't want to sell you (another) broken pedal!

Yeah been thinking long and hard on the simplifier + Tempus or just get a Line 6 Stomp. My Line 6 experience has been frustrating tho so went with the easier looking simplifier in the end. I'm headed back to playing weekly again and I can't be bothered carrying the Artisan around!

Commander has more switches than i need , Thank you though!

Been looking at one of those types myself. I think I'm actually leaning more toward the Quilter Interblock 45? https://www.quilterlabs.com/index.php/p ... erblock-45

Sounds great. Not sure why it doesn't get mentioned with these more often.

If I run two Simplifiers in sequence will it make it idiot-proof?

Due to phase one cancels the other out. Parallel will double the simplicity however.

I bought mine to give the kids another alternative to their devices. Want to give it a go myself, mind. Need a drum stool (which I see they're now calling a 'throne').
Good on you Dad! Interesting piece in the Herald talking about how short attention spans are nowadays. I see it in my youngest and in encouraging the drumming, I'm thinking along the same lines as you. I tell her a few bars is no good, she has to maintain the beat for several minutes, even up to 10 minutes, once she starts jamming out the I IV V progression with Dad. :lol:
tl:dr

LOL

An English teacher told me The Simpsons is now edited with much shorter scenes as kids don't have the attention span they used to.

I just want my kids to be busy and interested. Lots of after-school activities etc.
So, how's the e-drum kit working out for you? Is it having the desired effect? My daughter is well into it, but it is still new and exciting, granted. Plugged her into an amp yesterday and we jammed together.

Not really silent tho, the thwack of the beater on the kick drum is mildly annoying to say the least, but I'll tolerate it if it means less time on a device. Anyhoo, they have to put up with my mediocre guitar playing at all hours, so...... :roll:
