  1. Excellent site you got here! Lookin’ forward to hearing more about the music stuff. Cheers!

  2. Question about the Roadie2 coupler & the ION drum kit. I just receive the coupler in the mail and was planning on taking your suggestion about a 1/4 stereo to mono cable. The only thing is I just purchased a stereo to mono ‘adapter’ cause thats all they had he said. Can you please identity this cable to me, or if you have a link where it can be purchased I greatly appreciate it as I want to get this thing up and running . Thanks for your time.

    • I’m not sure where I got mine, it’s been kicking around the house for a couple years.

      However, an adapter should work just fine. If it doesn’t, try swapping ends around.

  3. Hey guys, Thanks for the smart comments about the You Rock Guitar. Funny, how some people just get it immediately and others ponder over whether it will be better on RockBand or Guitar Hero. Send me an email and I’ll put you on our list for updates. I culd send you a 3D render of the form factor in production, but I should have some final units any day. Where are you guys?

    • Hey Kevin!

      A few of us have backgrounds in music (performance, production, and instruction), so the potential immediately got our attention.

      We’re in Northern Utah, but we WILL be at E3… and we’ll look forward to any updates you have for us.

      I’m personally chomping at the bit to try the instrument in a recording environment… maybe some new themes for our podcasts.

      I’ll send you an email so you have our addresses.

      Thanks for dropping by!

  4. You guys need a page with your game info on it…so we’s can play’s with YOU!!! I am currently listening to your podcasts “again” to try to find which server you are on in Lost Chaos… 😀

    • Josh has been working feverishly on that EXACT page. We’re going to be overhauling the site completely towards the end of June, and it’s on our to-do list. Maybe we can add something temporarily to help out.

      For Last Chaos, you can find us on the Cariae-6 Server (Josh likes the RP servers). My character is named BOMBMatt.

  5. you guys have some pretty good reviews and your local. it would be awesome to play with you guys sometime. or ill just see you at the local BB.

    • LOL Yeah… I’m generally in the Riverdale BB on Tuesdays around 3pm (seems that’s when games are unloaded, IF they are going to be there on Tuesday).

      Send me a friend invite for any platform, we’ll compare games and play.

  6. My cousin would be amazed this blog post. We were not too long ago discussing about this. hehe
