It will get pretty clear I am a MESA/Boogie fan for so many reasons and although this blog is supposed to be handbuilt/boutique instrument haven, I can't help myself to now and then throw stuff in that I really like. This is one of them. I am also sure that when it comes to MESA/Boogie you will forgive me for adding. They make awesome stuff. Second reason I am sharing this is because I like things that are good and make life easier. I am NOT a purist, I only care about things that are good and work.
I love opensource prjects. Now they are rearing their head in fileds not expected. Like this one; a programmable digital effects pedal with workbench.
The OWL (Open Ware Laboratory) is an open source, programmable effects pedal made for guitarists, musicians, hackers and programmers alike. Users can program their own effects in C++, or download ready-made patches from our growing online patch library.
