Quarterly Fundraiser

It’s time for the rockman-gearup.com quarterly fund raiser. Our forum exists because of loyal contributors like yourself. There are a lot of ways to contribute. Participation and advocacy are critical. Another way is financial. Hosting web sites isn’t free. There are costs associated with server hosting, domain registration and purchasing encryption certificates for running a secure web site. Contributions are always welcome.

I'll suggest a $3 contribution. You can change that to a different amount. You might consider $5, $10 or $20. I don’t have a 501(c)3 organization, so I can’t offer a tax write-off at this time.

The contributions help defray the cost of operating rockman-gearup.com. The idea is to keep the forum ad-free. Funds are used to pay for the operations, maintenance and promotion of the web site. Please let me know if you have any comments or questions. Tell a friend! Here’s the link:

For those of you who have heard this pitch, I'm preaching to the choir. For new members, this is intended as some gentle encouragement. Thanks in advance for any and all contributions!

Rockman Rig Example

I've been slowly putting together a basic Rockman rig using a Sustainor and Chorus/Delay as the principal components. It's far enough along that I thought I'd show it off. The components are racked in a 19 inch rack/road case. I'm using a 2 channel EQ. Channel 1 is assigned to clean sounds. Channel 2 is assigned to edge/distortion sounds. The stereo output is sent directly to the mixer.
