I had a dream last night, where I was telling Dave Amels that Anamod should do a VF14 replacement. True story.
edit for clarification:
Dave Amels is a brilliant programmer, designer, musician, engineer, etc. His company, Anamod, makes gear that does "analogue modeling." He designs analog circuits that model and mimic gear which is no longer produced.
I wonder if it is possible for him to make a circuit that could be used in place of a VF14. As I said, it was a dream I had. the interesting thing is that I dreamed of asking somebody to make a possible substitute for the tube, and not remake the tube! I suppose this means I'm past the first stage of grieving: Denial.
