FAB Modules Wiki for Documentation

I’ve successfully setup a Wiki for the FABModules website.  It can be found by going to FABModules.com/docs.

The Wiki will be used to store all documentation, tips, techniques, application notes, schematics, diagrams, photos, PDF and Zip files for all FABs.

I’ve decided on using a Wiki instead of the WordPress database for easier maintenance, and more flexibility. It’s also much faster vs. WordPress since all the files are stored as “flat files” in PmWiki, the PHP-based software platform I’m using.

I’m going to try to build the “skeleton” and “framework” for the Wiki page, and populate it with preliminary information. Then I’ll open the wiki to the public so they can add their own stuff and content as we continue to grow.

All Edit access to the Wiki will be “password-protected” but the password will be publicly provided on the Wiki welcome page. I did this to minimize the wiki being spammed by robots, if I just simply provided open access. My thinking is people who are interested will be reading the Welcome page and find the password they need to edit pages.

FabModules.com is now MOBILE friendly!

I’m still trying to get used to WordPress and all it’s features. There’s a lot of improvements I want to make to the site to improve it’s navigation and usability.

I installed “Jetpack” on this site and enabled the MOBILE WEB feature. I think the website now looks good and very readable even when viewed on a small mobile phone screen.

Check it out on your mobile phone! www.fabmodules.com  (of course, you know that!)

Welcome to our new website, FABModules.com —  brought to you by the same folks at FiveFish Audio!

What are FABModules?

FABModules (or FABs for short) are “FiveFish Audio Building Blocks.”  They are basically little electronic “widgets” that you can combine (like Lego blocks, or Erector sets)  in different ways to create your own audio signal processing unit.  Just like “Lego blocks”, they connect with one another easily, and lets you recreate proven designs (like preamps, equalizers, compressors, etc.) or build, invent or design-your-own thingamajig.

For example: Maybe you’ve dreamed of a preamp with parallel optical and VCA compressors, or  maybe you’re wondering what a preamp with a certain combination of Input Transformer, Amplifying unit and Output Transformer will sound like?

Or maybe you just want a simple gadget that will do one thing well or maybe you’re already racking or DIY’ing your own gear and just need a certain “module” to finish your project.

With FABModules, you can!
