26 ade 3 weeks ago It does seem very clean and efficient and rather a pleasant place to work as a factory goes.I really do feel that you didn't get a feeling of the magic, of the creative spark and enthusiasm that ferments these devices. In the end, it's just caps, diodes and resistors in a metal box yet the imagination to connect them in a myriad of imaginative ways is the alchemy. You didn't get even a glimpse of that and feel a little bit sad for you and the others. No box art on the walls, no fun fonts on the signage, no Zappa on the radio. We both know that a visit to those dudes making effects at Tapanga Canyon in the early 70s would have been highly, highly (and I use the word advisedly) memorable. If it could be remembered at all.The lack of a demonstration facility, even a silent Pod-populated area, is palpably miserable.
