A good friend of mine who passed away last year use to say "You can't fix stupid."

The older I get, the more I realize how true that is.

I dont know if you can fix it, but bashing it a few times with a hammer can be therapeutic.

That's why i love those multi quotes.

You didn't really say much, except that you disagree with about every single point he made, did you?
And he's wrong on every response of 'nope'. :D
I wonder what happens if I press this button...

so you're arguing that combfilters and allpass filters are EQs, and that highpass and bandpass filters do only pass the low frequencies are you?

wags, im gonna need that hammer.

EQ' refers to tonal equalisation and involves modest cuts or boosts of amplitude across the frequency spectrum to technically or subjectively 'improve' the signal's frequency response.

Filters are generally described as cut-only devices that are intended to remove some portion of the frequency spectrum.


I don´t think he is wrong

My New Year's resolution is hanging by a thread. There is only so much of this I can take.

Well, my mom never said musicians were smart. Maybe that's why there are so many starving ones.
