(Part of a sporadic, if highly questionable, series to not only celebrate Ron M’s elevation to “expert” status by Line 6, but also to firmly re-affirm his firm determination to remain a fully ...and firmly... independent end-users’ advocate. With or without additional firmware.)
Introducing The ILM86d Concept (Configurable To SPM86d & TAM86d): (Rated PG)
All of Line 6’s bit-mapping and modeling expertise should immediately be turned to developing the vital ILM86d, along with its optional SPM86 and TAM86 alternative firmware.
Sampling and bit-mapping of the acoustic environment, using the pair of microphones built into this device, should effortlessly facilitate the application of perfect phase cancellation (that only digital processing can bring) for the total muting of anything said by the in-laws.
It would clearly be but a small step from that to the SPM (spouse muting) and TAM (teenager muting) versions.
