I know of a couple of things that will be on offer this weekend, and it is unlikely I will make it through unscathed... :headbang:

I thought there was supposed to be a timetable on the site today, but I don't see it :(

I think it's a free event but won't be upset if I'm wrong either.

Well I thought the whole event was excellent! I really enjoyed the sections I was able to catch live and I'll be watching the remainder over the next day or three.

A superb effort from everyone and a brilliant result. Bravo! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Missed a good chunk, but what I saw was great!
(I'll catch up over the next few days)

Huge thanks to all the organisers and participants for making this happen

Respect for the huge stamina and profesionalism from Jamie for holding it all together.

Thanks to all who watched the live stream and contributed comments.

It was a lot of hard work and we were spinning way too many plates on Saturday. Hats off to Jamie, our show host, for a fantastic job well done. You can catch up with this 8 hour marathon on YouTube. See https://www.synthfest.co.uk/live-stream for link.

The site will remain online for many months so do go and explore if you've not been. Lots of videos and exclusive content for SynthFest UK.

Finally, a big apology to Paul Ward aka The Elf, for not getting his video about using Cantabile software for his live performances online at the start. You can catch it here anytime. https://www.synthfest.co.uk/paul-ward

An incredible job to keep that live stream going. I can well imagine the amount of paddling going on under the water. :clap:

Glad my Cantabile/MIDI Designer live performance system video can now be seen. Here's a link to a synchronised video made during lockdown that features the performance system (one in each studio) as described:

This video features the amazing John Dyson - a brilliant musician and a heck of a good human being.

Indeed, very impressive - and remarkably few glitches. I actually got to see far more than I usually do :tongue:
