BikeWeek Wrap-up

March 7th, 2010
The Daytona 2010 BikeWeek is now something for the history books. People came to the rally and partied. I did not talk directly to vendors but heard that it was a crowd of lookers, not buyers. The weather was somewhat less than co-operative. The temperatures were low for the whole rally. There was, however, only one rainy day and that mostly in the The Rest of the Story [...]

Gospel Choir Concert

February 6th, 2010
February 4th was the evening of the annual spring Gospel Choir Concert at Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach Florida. I have provided sound reinforcement for the Gospel Choir. This year was the first opportunity to use the SAC rig. This is a choir of singers. There is not too much problem getting the voices out. This year the Alto section was The Rest of the Story [...]

Auxiliary Page Uploaded

January 14th, 2010
My description of the auxiliary section has been uploaded to the Mixer in a Box site. This page is complete with screen shots of the primary screens associated with the auxiliary section. The SAC aux section consists of six full stereo modules. Each can be patched with either plugin effects or as hardware send and returns. This offers a great deal The Rest of the Story [...]

The Scenes Page is Live

January 14th, 2010
I have recently uploaded a description of the Scenes System in the Software Audio Console. The SAC scenes system is very powerful and easy to use. You have the resolution to control a single parameter on a singleĀ  mixer up to a global snapshot of all twenty five mixers. Check out the page on the main site at: The Scenes System in SAC The Rest of the Story [...]

Effects Page Posted

January 10th, 2010
I have just posted a page on the Effects system in the Software Audio Console on the Mixer in a Box site. There are a wide variety of plug-in effects that can be used with the SAC system. There are several native plug-ins and most any VST or DX plug that does not cause latency can be used in the environment. I used some screen shots to help explain The Rest of the Story [...]

Mixer Views Page

January 10th, 2010

There is another new page on the site. It is the mixer views page. It details some of the different views that are available with the virtual mixer. I have illustrated the new material liberally with screen shots and even have one trick up my sleeve. Check it out and find the trick!

A New Page for the New Year

January 8th, 2010
There is a new page and a slightly different look to the Mixer in a Box site. I have added some pictures on the home page to break up the text and make the site a bit more friendly. I have also added a new page. The Z Mixer page has a picture of the Z Mixer strip and a description of the controls on the strip. I put the mixer picture in a scroll The Rest of the Story [...]

My Summer of Successes

December 1st, 2009
I see that the last post was the end of May. I have been slack in posting to this blog. That does not mean that there have been no outings with my SAC rig. In June I did two major events using the SAC rig. The first was the Laconia, NH motorcycle rally. This was a eight day event. I did carry the analog board along and it was used for the Bang Camero The Rest of the Story [...]

BCASCA Jamboree

May 30th, 2009
The BCASCA Jamboree is an annual event with which I have been evolved since its inception. BCASCA is the Brevard Caribbean American Sports & Cultural Association. The event was held Labor Day weekend for several years, but consistent bad weather and a hurricane caused them to change the date to Memorial Day weekend a few years ago. There is a The Rest of the Story [...]
