Julian: This seems like the best place to post this. First I want to thank Recording .org for the banner, and the readers for the click thru's to my web page. I have seen a lot of interest in various forums for a plate reberberation system / kit. I have a company, Reasonable Alternatives that I resurected from ananimity to offer components for such systems. I have made over 100 full size plates in my time, and I am renewing my relationship with my vendors. I saw there is a guy calling himself plate boy and I'm trying to figure out who he might be. I know of 3 or 4 other people that made plates in the 80's like Steiner, Echoplate and Audience. I don't think he's any of them. Maybe he's a guy who made a few in his basement or something. Anyway, I think I can save your readers a lot of "experimentation". I did all that years ago, and know all of the pit falls. One of the items that I developed is a "response shaper" that tailors the drive signal so that you get a very pleasing reverb. It pretty much takes the "mud" out. So judgiging from the click on my banner ad, there seems to be some interest here. If anyone wants to contact me, they can email me at email@example.com. They can view my site at http://www.reasonablealternatives.com. Remember it is still under construction and the pricing listed is subject to change. Thanks for the post.
