Visit to the Electro-Harmony factory!

I just came back from a short trip to New York, where I visited the Electro-Harmonix factory!

Mike Matthews was also there, but I forgot to take a picture (I was very tired when I left for NY and the long flight didn't help :)). As I'm from Belgium he told me how he signed the first deals with the bosses of Sovtek in Brussels and how they went to a restaurant in the "Rues des Bouchers" ("the street with all the fish").

Update: New address!

I moved the site from http://filters.muziq.be to http://www.effectsdatabase.com: easier and more international.

I started using the old URL about 5 years ago, intending to make some small music-related sites under the muziq.be domain, but after a while I decided to make a site about all effects, not just envelope filters and I never started the other sites.

The old effectsdatabase.com site disappeared 2 years ago and and the owner didn't extend the domain name registration. Register.com didn't release it for registration until a few weeks ago.

Please, spread the word (and link)!
