If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite

You say that like im doing stuff against people's wishes....

last night after cleaning up a lot of the existing cuts, getting rid of some extended dead air, and various other tweaks..... I called it a night at 3:30am

You all let me know how many more changes we want and I'll see what I can fit in, tongue.gif
Also as an aside..... my ears are officially tired of listening to the music.... lets me solely focus on listening to the speakers (gatta stay positive).

its all good, i knew you were working on it last night i just stopped chatting with you pretty early so i was not sure what exactly was done

Not sure if asking which speaker is playing is the way to go, is it?
I would think it would be which one you preferred. Find out which one you preferred after the show. I know I can't guess what speaker might be playing.

Guessing which speaker is just for fun. Of course you should be noting which you like the best and specifically what you like and don't like about each. smile.gif If a certain track stands out as stellar - note it down as well.

This will be updated as the track information is updated as well.

Switch the track list to be landscape, add an area for notes to be written. Have one copy for each attendee times the number of speakers. so thats like 75 copies....

I'd offer to print it out, but its been one of those days....
recieved a large shipment of computer equipment for multi-year project... go to print out bill of materials...

printer is out of paper .... fixed that

printer is out of toner.... can't deal with that..... I think its time to go home... tomorrow is going to be a wash as well...

Good idea on the landscape - done. If we can get the tracklist finalized by sometime Friday morning I can print at work most likely. That will be a lot of paper, but doable. wink.gif

I would think every one of us has the ability to print.
Save yourself and request everyone bring their own copies.

Thanks guys, very much appreciated! I thought of the double sided printing on the way home as well. Should be able to get it to a very manageable printable size. smile.gif

They have it on Itunes. I downloaded a few songs from it this morning. As I said earlier there is a very small percussion set for about a minute 20 seconds and it so crystal clear, it is like some playing drums in your living room. I really wish the track was about 10 minutes, I could just listen to drum solo's all day. I do have to admit that after buying the Noesis, I have found myself becoming a Jazz fan.

Have you heard Boxenkiller? Most realistic drum song I've heard. The youtube clip isn't great but this will give you an idea.

How about the SHO-10's I bought from you? They did win a blind test at a previous AVS GTG with strong competition. I think they could SHOw quite well at your GTG! LOL. I could bring them if I could get off the damn wait list

I'd be interested in hearing those Brandon. I'm actually looking at maybe picking up some Single 8's or Bag End M6's.

If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite
