    Hi Folks,
    This post is pretty much a shameless plug for a high quality audience reaction pedal developed by my friend Jim Showker here in Eugene, Oregon. I created the web site http://audiencereactionpedal.com, for this rugged stereo foot pedal and I'd like to help Jim get the word out. Apologies if I have chosen an inappropriate venue.
    In gratitude,
    Bodhi Goforth
    Eugene, OR.

    Kind of an anemic website, as a vehicle to inform the public, imo. No user testimonials, no money back guarantee, heck I couldn't even buy one! And I need to adjust the level on my audience reaction ;)

    Maybe Billy Mays can help you guys out?

    OK...I'm stumped. :? You got me.

    What the freak is an "audience reaction pedal", and what does it have to do with a dual volume pedal....and why would anyone want something that big and bulky to gouge their ankles, anyway?

    And those "Delrin" to metal gears...wise choice.

    This IS a spoof...right?

    I have to agree without seeing it, the Delrin to metal sounds like a bad idea.

    This would have been great back when audience reaction (aka "laugh tracks") were "played" by a weird keyboard-type machine using tapes (like a Mellotron). These days, I think there are other ways to do this... :lol:
    Having said this, I watched a broadcast sound mixer in a FOX truck during the Superbowl. He could have used a couple of those pedals the way he was grabbing at knobs and pushing faders with pencils! And I have a modified Ernie Ball stereo volume pedal a friend of mine made a little MIDI box for. Now the EB can transmit MIDI controller data to my Lexicon LXP to vary the reverb/FX levels for my live mixing. And it's a helluvalot less clunky than the box shown on that site!

    I forgive you for posting this shill here simply because you're from Eugene and that in itself begs for forgiveness.

    Is that why Pink Floyd wrote that song, "Watch Out for That Axe, Eugene!"???
