RIP Dennis Dreadstone (Kidvybes )

I am sorry to report that Dennis Dreadstone (Kidvybes ) passed away today. Here is what his sister said on facebook today.

"Today my brother Dennis passed from this world peacefully surrounded only by love. I know so many of you have prayed and sent positive energy. Your posts meant so much. Please share your memories of him and remember his endless creativity and imagination and, of course, his sense of humor. Give thanks and bless."

For any of you who knew Dennis, you know he was a great guy who loved Audio and Music. He was a great contributor here and in other places. He recently got sick and it didn't take long for it to catch up with him. Hug the ones you love!

Wow! I am truly speechless. I can't even begin to express my gratitude for the information regarding microphones he so patiently bestowed upon me. His honesty was second to none. A true gentleman...he will sorely be missed. My condolences to his family.

R.I.P. Kidvybes

Wow @kidvybes always gave honest feedback regarding mics IMO. He def will be missed regarding the diy mic scene, especially with his penchant for always going a step or two further with builds and tweaks. This is sad to hear and condolences to his family and friends. He always used to joke about his Gap in his front teeth, especially doing VO files testing mics/ capsules. May he rest in audio peace and forever be surrounded by new mic builds. Oh yeah and again he is the sole person for making the warbler mics known and available not to mention the many other products he always gave props too. RIP Dennis @kidvybes"

Wow, he gave so much here with all the info on Mics. It will be different without him always testing out Mics and giving recommendations based off it. R.I.P. Dennis your contributions will be so missed.

I spoke to Kidvibes at length by phone not too long ago. He said he was sick at a later date when I asked to call him again to further discuss the mic merchants. So very sad. Rest In Peace my good man....

He was my favorite fellow slut.

I had no idea he was sick, or I would have sent him a message for sure.

I don't think Ive ever felt so sad hearing of the passing of someone I didn't really know. Honestly, he was one of the reasons I read stuff on GS so much. I will miss his contribution and just knowing he was in the world, as he seemed a genuine soul. I can only imagine how his family and friends must be feeling if I, a practical stranger feels the loss as profoundly as I do.

A sad day. Bless hi.

This is quite upsetting to see him pass. Feel like I somewhat knew him without ever meeting.

Rest in peace Kidvybes.
