Mr. Schaffer decided to reply directly via email.
Found his email this morning, upon waking up. Useless to try and describe what he told me and what I feel.
Let’s just say that he is willing to help me.
For now, an exclusive present of his to us: the original sticker that was affixed on each receiver of the original SVDS unit. You can barely see a round circle in pictures of the original SVDS, on the left side of the receiver looking at it from the front.
10 things that amateur guitarists can do to play more like a pro.
Although I think egotism, self appreciation and stardom have to be strongly fought (inside of ourselves, for first) I am pleased to tell you that Mr. Chris Townsend – Lead Guitar Products Architect at Avid – has compiled a “definitive Eleven Rack Tracks List” – in Avid’s Eleven Rack Blog.
A few of my renditions with the Eleven Rack have been added: You’ll see the list right there.
And here’s Mr. Townsend comments on SoloDallas:
Special recognition should go to a few users in particular who are phenomenal players and really show off Eleven Rack to its potential. Fil Oliveri, also known as SoloDallas (solodallas.com), can get the best AC/DC tone of anyone I’ve ever heard. So much so that you might even swear you are listening to Angus and Malcom. If you’re interested in how to get that kind of tone yourself, his site is full of great tips.
Do I feel proud? Yes, I do.
BUT I always look forward to successes for the community. As you know, I do NOT have an interest for myself for a “music” career. I did my choice years ago already.
However, being recognized more and more as a Rock point of reference, fills me with hope.
