    …..Ah yes the time has arrived for another Sebatron quiz. :cool:

    This time the prize is a vmp-1000e VU valued at over $1000 USD….
    Shipped directly from the Sebatron factory…. 8)

    Anyone R.O members can enter ,, except moderators I believe ,, and the rules are simple and fair…just like last time ……..hehehe…
    We will try to keep good track of scores and if there’s an error then that’s just bad luck…. ..too bad ….
    However there will be a winner and it should become quite obvious who wants the prize bad enough because their persistence will shine through….

    The Rules:
    There are no rules ( as I always say ) just don’t distort it …
    and even then , only even order distortion allowed….
    Those suffering from ‘RCI’ characteristics are advised not to participate… :?
    Each question is worth a certain amount of points ,, whoever gets to 500 points first wins the prize ,,, NO SECOND OR THIRD PRIZE ,, except pure glory.
    BTW , Sebatron reserves the right to modify and/or create these rules to his own discretion……at any time …..ahahahahahehehe….. :D

    The prize is a vmp-1000e VU valued at over $1000 USD….
    Shipped directly from the Sebatron factory…. 8)

    The Questions:
    Quite possibly thirty questions in all...
    Some may be multiple choice , some answers may be graded according to accuracy,,some will be easy ,, some will be hard ,, some will be pure headfux….
    but it’s all on purpose for my own amusement…..hehehe……ahahaha……

    The Time Frames:
    Around one question per week or maybe less ….. sometimes more….who knows?
    White noise is almost a cure.... we all need a bit of random behaviour...

    The Prize:
    The prize is a vmp-1000e VU valued at over $1000 USD….
    Shipped directly from the Sebatron factory…. 8)

    Where ?:
    The Sebatron Forum…. Right here on R.O….

    Why ?:
    ..because it’s there….. :shock:

    Hey Seb,

    Why aren't mods eligible? :cry:
    We're not paid or anything like that - at least I'm not.
    For a sebvmp worth 1K, I'll quit my volunteer position as a mod. :D
    I promise no conflict of interest -I'll sign a waiver, I'll travel to Australia at RO's expense - whatever it takes - :cool:

    Hi Seb, allright!

    We're all equal and the Mods are obviously excited to be included.... Correct Phil, no one is paid here and no mods have inside info to this giveaway so I say let the entire planet join in.

    I have a VMP and I'll tell you it is a definitely a sweet addition to my studio. Clean, warm and fat.

    Right on Sebatron. This is a good idea!

    I think those of us who have already purchased a Seb should get 10 bonus points.

    Just kidding.

    Good luck to all.

    Uh-Oh! :-? This should be informative and entertaining! A couple hints for the newer folks: Study electronics, music history, space history, and french cooking! Even though Sebatron is on Melbourne time, I've found that he doesn't sleep. If you want to win, you won't sleep either (Doug will back me on that! :wink: ). The prize is really worth all the effort and more! Since the mods are playing, I may give it a go myself. I think it would be fair though that if the mods do play that no post should be edited, period. Than again, it might be more fun if it wasn't fair!!! Maybe Doug and I should start off with a negative amount of points? Good luck to all! :cool:

    We are tickled sh*tless to see another Sebatron contest / giveaway conducted here at RO. It is very generous of Sebatron to give away his beautiful pre amps to a lucky members of the RO community . Thank you Sebatron.. you da' man!! :cool:

    As much as I hate to, I have to make sure the following is understood, due to some flack we received last time Sebatron ran a contest. Please do not construe this as a downer or as anything else other than insurance that RO will not become a target for some litigious jerk who decides this is a good opportunity to exploit.

    1) RO is not responsible in any manner, shape or form for anything in regards to the Sebatron giveaway.

    2) In regards to mods participating ... Let's be clear before we start .. everyone is equal .. moderator or not.

    3) If a moderator of RO wins and you are going to complain about it, then don't participate. No one (mod or not) has any advantage.

    4) The contest crosses international boundaries .. therefore no laws or regulations apply .. no law of any one country supersedes that of another country and there really are no rules, other than "There are no rules".

    5) Sebatrons decisions will be final. Sebatron will make the calls and any allowances. If Sebatron changes things up in the middle of the contest, that's how it is .. if you can't abide by that, then don't particpate in the contest.

    6) Good luck to all ... Play, have fun, go nuts!

    7) ... but no crying...

    "There's no crying at RO!" :-?
  16. We used to play a game called Mushball at school whenever the oval flooded, our crazy Canadian sports teacher said that there was only one rule, 'If I can see blood through the mud, you're playing too hard'

    I'm one of the unfortunates that needs 8 hours sleep most nights, so I guess I'm out already... :(

    But I look forward to the entertainment of watching everyone else get slowly more and more sleep deprived, desperate and irrational! :shock:
    Sebatron's got to get his moneys worth out of the competition after all There are organisations that will stop you being cruel to animals, but most sound engineers I know don't fall into that category, so have fun Seb!!! :D
