RIP Dave Hill....I'm Anishinaabe (Ojibway) and in our culture the Crane is one of our leaders. The Crane Clan is defined as this: "The crane stands in the water observing the world above the water line. Because the crane observes the outside world the Crane clan is known as the Outside Chief. The outside chief is responsible for negotiating with people from other communities." From what I know of Dave (from what I read about him....and using his Cranesong gear), he was certainly a leader in more than just audio....and it has been said that he was certainly very open and welcoming to others at not only trade shows but also to ideas to improve his products and audio in general....I wish I had met the man in person but am thankful I found his great Cranesong thoughts and prayers are with his family and condolences to all....and in honour of the man I would like to share a painting I did some time ago....of a Great Blue Heron (part of the Crane family) and a photo of a heron taking flight (as Dave's gear has allowed many of us to):

Thanks for sharing some cultural stuff there, Jiimaan. Very cool.

Dave Hill was one of the great ones for sure. I used the STC-8 for years. Very smooth compressor. Had an email from Dave long time ago. He posted a few times here way back in our early days as well. He will be missed indeed.
