Live Sound Virtual Meetup?

Postby Dave B » Sun Nov 01, 2020 11:59 am

Hi everyone,

The idea has been floated in the Lounge that we could do some sub-forum/sub-topic Zoom meetups during Lockdown II (this time it's personal). I am happy to host and, as I do a bit of live sound, thought I'd float the idea here.

Would people be interested? If so, any preference for day of the week?

I'm always up for a chat but it would depend on fitting around other stuff.

Ignore the post count, I have no idea what I'm doing...

Yep, I'm in. My knowledge only extends to the edge of the stage, so always keen to learn more.

Possibly... early in the week is better for me, especially now I've had to ramp up podcast and videocast production for Sunday activities.

I’d be up for that. For me, like Drew, it depends on fitting around other stuff at the moment.
The hours I work are irregular at best so I’ll see if I can make myself available :thumbup:

I'm up for that - looks as though I'll be available most evenings for a while ...

I've checked my diary and that seems to be the case.

Do yourself a favour, wear earplugs at gigs.

I'd be interested, but it will depend on children and wife! Make a decision on time and date and I'll see if I can make it :)

Anyone brave enough to put a day)time on this or are we still waiting for clearance from the technical advisors?

How about Monday the 16th? at about 8/8.30ish? Or do we want it sooner?

I'm usually free by about 8.30 so I'm fairly relaxed. Wednesday is the only evening that might be an issue.

Mondays are generally good and that's a handy time.

That gives us a little time to share tech wisdom on how to hook up the various bits and pieces that might be useful.

I've done some exploring of acoustic guitar and similar soundboard instrument amplification which might be useful to someone, happy to share the few nuggets.

Of course, the first ten minutes will consist entirely of a group of guys sat in front of their computer going...

One, Two... One, Two... Two T-T-Two..

Now, where did I put my coat?

I’ll be working late that night. I can only do Thursday that week but please don’t feel the need to work around me - I could well end up working that night too! :headbang:
