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.

Rockman Gearup Updates / Secure and Mobile Access

Over the last couple of months I’ve been working on improving the Rockman Gearup forum, making some hosting changes to improve performance, security and better support mobile devices. This weekend I made a couple of key changes.

I’ve now made SSL mandatory for the web site. The reason for this, is to better protect everybody’s access to the forum. Non-secure access will now be re-directed to the secure web site. The best URL to access the web site is now:

Please update your bookmarks if you haven’t already.

I also turned on a mobile style for the forum. If you give the forum a look from your smart phone. You should see a more mobile friendly view of the web site. Now you can take with you, when you’re away from your home computer.

If you prefer the full style of the web site on your mobile device, you can click on the “Switch to full style” link at the bottom of the web page.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for being part of the Rockman Gearup forum.
