it'll probably get revised with more graphics later. i find the graphics do quite a bit to help you form the concept in your head.

good to hear it's approachable. i was trying to include much of stuff you get from sound engineering books without it being too dry and esoteric.

R45VT: Amp Troubleshooting
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru...d.php?t=1590946

a.) Subject Matter Handling: 8

the thread addresses troubleshooting an amplifier (more particularly a tube amplifier) and breaks down different areas of troubleshooting.

even though the areas are broken down in logical ways the subject matter was presented a bit ham handedly. subsequent revision of the material as actually groomed it nicely, including a Table of Contents to quickly see the subjects covered.

videos and pictures are included of typical audio anomalies used to troubleshoot and additional material is presented for further research.

i could see more content being added later, but i think there is more than enough content to consider the thread for inclusion.

i could still see a little more additional labeling to help clearly mark each section as being helpful

b.) Article Structure & Flow: 7

the flow of the article isn't incredibly fluid, but content is thorough, example material is well presented and content is divided into sections.

some verbal templating and additional internal labeling would help polish the piece

c.) Independence: 9

the author is reporting the news with clear effort of trying to present as many symptoms to malfunctions as possible.

d.) Accuracy: 10

many symptoms are referenced with video and audio, extra links help verify info in article. i'd like a more techy amp guy to weigh in, but this all seems like very accurate information

e.) Language: 7.5

the language is very knowledgeable without being unnecessarily technical. i didn't feel like a new player who knows nothing about amps wouldn't be able to get the gist of the thread. it conveys in the content plainly.

there is room to smooth out some of the language. certain phrases are repeated often, and certain sections can seem a bit awkward. nothing that obscures the content or the underlining message though. just a little classic grammar school red pencil and high school paper editor crap.

f.) Content & Clarity: 8.5

i like how short and sweet everything is presented. bulleted checklist style with simple one or two sentence explanations and possibly some video or a pic to help reinforce the concept.

you can actually scan through the thread quite quickly, which is nice when you are trying to troubleshoot your amp. the pic and video links also help you keep your mind on the task and not hunting down more content to find examples. smart layout and useful for troubleshooting.

Overall Rating: 8.3

Recommended for inclusion.

Hi guys, back. Managed to get time for actual work rather than forum browsing. I had a read of the articles and the rating system as people are using it. Is there any feedback on the choice of attributes? Is 6 too many? If so based on the comments I see posted, we can skim it down further to 3 if that makes life easier for everyone:

1. Subject (Subject matter handling, accuracy, independence)
2. Structure & Flow
3. Clarity (Language & content)

Also, I can take on vetting work now.

^ Hey Kitty

I think the 6 we have now works well. We are already well adjusted. If you feel vetting, please take a look at R45VTs troubleshooting thread that gumbi posted and rated 2 posts up. Thanks, and good to see you again.

Hey ya'all,

Following up with my post-evaluation evaluation of Gumbi's Principle of Sound knowledge base

Disclaimer: No hard feelings intended in this review, Gumbi, I tend to get too brutally honest sometimes, so don't take my comments and ratings too harshly.

Executive Summary
The article is well written, but a little technical. There are some areas where the content is fairly easy to read and follow, but at the same time, there are areas where concepts are introduced but not delved into.

I'd say that its a great first article, but it needs more attention to the content, especially in introducing concepts and providing layman explanation. The use of everyday examples are very helpful in explaining concepts.

Overall, I think the article brings a lot to the table, but with sudden introduction to concepts without dedicated section introduces a feeling of suddenness and abruptness to the article. Right now, this feels more like a lecture. There's a whole lotta content, but no opportunity to get full clarity on it, unless one hounds the professor after the class.

Princliple of Sound
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru...d.php?t=1590957


a.) Subject Matter Handling: 6
Overall, the subject matter is well handled. The article dives right into key concepts necessary for a thorough understanding, but falls a little short of providing thorough explanations that is accessible.

The main issue is that the article is not always accessible to all readers, and quite a bit of brain power is necessary to understand the content. This is where it falls short. The article handles the subject matter very well IF one has some basic understanding of how basic concepts impacts the sound.

For example, an short, but dedicated section on pitch and overtone would have been great to ease readers in, rather than to introduce the concept suddenly.


b.) Article Structure & Flow 7
The OVERALL structure is simple and clear. The train of thought is easy to follow.

However, as mentioned above, I get a feeling of abruptness, with concepts being sudden introduced, which breaks the flow of reading the article.

Quite a few times, as the author starts a new train of thought, it is rather sudden.

Things which can be done to improve is to start each new train of thought with a simple introduction on the topic being covered (e.g. start of waveform), and as the topic is closed, an conclusion to wrap up the section. That way, the audience will know what is being covered, how this relates to a sound principle, and what this means for the reader.


c.) Independence N/A

Can't see any area where there are normative statements or content that is disputable.


d.) Accuracy N/A

No comment. I don't think I'm sufficiently qualified in the sciences to judge accuracy. For crying out loud, I once managed to convince someone that "colors" don't really exist and is all in the mind.


e.) Language 6.5

A little technically inclined. With a complex topic, I personally think that it can be made more lay man, or at least when introducing concepts, simpler language could be used.


f.) Content & Clarity 7

This ties to the subject matter, flow and language. The clarity of content suffers a little here because the topic isn't simple to begin with, and the flow of the content, the language used bogs the clarity down a little.

trying to review the Ultimate Live Sound thread by Phil Starr

http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru...07&page=1&pp=20

And one thing that should be mandatory is a content page... there' so much information, a content page will be helpful in setting a overview and general flow to the thread.


On a separate note!

I was just reading a thread about a second amp, and a few topics I think would be helpful is:

1. How to buy a used guitar / amp / effect - AKA. what do I check when buying used, so that I don't get screwed over.

2. Buying another piece of gear - Things to consider before raiding the piggy bank.

Actually, I personally have lots of experience sinking money into new gear for the sake of new gear. So I think I'll start that thread on things to consider before buying a new piece of gear. Anyone else think its also a good thread to have?

However, it'll bea thread focused on comsiderations and the decision making process for,a new piece of gear, with little or limited focus on technical comparison of gear.
