    4. Gear Demo Videos & Sound Clips Archive

      Prior to September 4, 2013 all demos went into this one section. All demos with posts since August 2013 have been moved to the appropriate new demo areas. Too many to move so the rest stay in this "Archive". The new demo areas should make it a bit easier to find the demos you are interested in.
