Hi All,

I'm significantly happy to report that we had a swell meeting today in Suffern, with about the best turnout that could be hoped for (except for missing those of you who weren't there). The presentation was enjoyed by all, and talking with them individually and as a group was even better. There was a huge amount of recording and technical expertise in the room, and they freely shared and kibitzed.

The meeting kicked off just after 1:30pm, and we had to restart a couple times to not leave out the new arrivals, which was fine. There was in fact a Jet/Patriots game today in Meadowlands, starting at 1pm, so traffic in the Northeast Corridor was screwed up for hours.

Despite that, we got through the program, although fascinating and welcome comments from attendees made precise timing impossible, but that was a minuscule price to pay to get to be part of that conversation.

The last stragglers left at about 6:40pm, after enjoying Fletcher and Plan B's wonderful food and beverages for a notable amount of time.

Present were Fletcher, Larry/Silvertone from my thread in the Hoffman forum, Dominick Costanzo from Battery Studios, and Tom Fine from whatever his mastering studio is called (can't find it online right now), plus this author.

As I said, there was a lot of recording and technical expertise in that collection of folks, and they already knew a LOT about the gear in the pictures I showed them, and were interested to see the history and details that I presented.

I did record it, but between the fact that there was a significant amount of bleed from the football watching in the bar, and that I don't have rights to the music examples I played, that recording will never be released. Sorry; for at least a while, you're going to need to be there.

Thanks to Fletcher and to all who attended. You all made my day.

I have to add that it was seriously fun to meet you, Larry, and Tom -- and great to see Dominick again.  Thank you so much for bringing this wonderful presentation to our humble saloon, and if anyone reading this has the opportunity to see it live and in person at AES -- avail yourself of the opportunity!!

I so enjoyed not only the presentation but as we were a small group we let our geek flags fly... and being retired from "audio", it was damn fun to have a couple hundred pounds of useless knowledge come flooding back to my world.  I can't remember the last time I had that much fun in that building while learning!!

Peace

Just in case anyone reading this can be at the NY AES Convention with the ability to get into the Paper Sessions, my 30th St presentation will be tomorrow, Saturday, at 10:45am in Room 1E08.

The one I'll give is about the sixth incarnation of this talk, with information unearthed as recently as two nights ago.

It's a full hour and a half long, so come prepared.

This will be the last time I'll bug you about this here. Thanks again, Fletcher, for being so welcoming.
