Avid’s Chris Townsend Talks about SoloDallas

16 May Avid’s Chris Townsend Talks about SoloDallas

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.


Yours, always,


Fil 🙂
