Is it just Sugaree or am I not clicking right place?
go to the archives................
Bump cuz I'm Pumped!
Anybody getting a video feed? All I'm getting is audio. It sounds great, but would like to see something.
Video comes in clear and in hi-def on my system. The sound is crystal clear too. This is really great. Kudos to Bob Weir!
Kimock should be coming up soon
Looks ands sounds great on my computer....
Thanks for posting about this...sounds MUCH better than the last Ratdog show I caught. And that's a real dotneck 335, right?
Not bad for a lonely Friday night with Ms. Snarkle out of town...
Much obliged for the tip.
At least Kimock looks like he's having fun...these other dudes are so damn serious....
Sound and video are pretty awesome. Liked that corinna
Won't work on the MacPro but works perfectly on my Ipad. Holy crap, they are in the zone! Kimock is having a ball!
Yeah, Kimock is super smooth.
This is an interesting paradigm. I can see a lot of potential here. I hope his venture works out.
Sure looks/sounds promising, from what I checked.
I'm listening on my good system and without a doubt this has the most visual and audio clarity of any "televised" live concert I've ever witnessed.
We may very well be witnessing history being made. This really gives me hope for live concerts and the music business.
Kudos to Bobby once again for breaking new ground.
That was amazing. I hope to see more of this.
OK, what was with the stick that Bobby would randomly whack himself in the leg with? Anybody?
The entire room was simulating various reverbs that Bobby could change via his iPad. He was using the stick to hear the various kinds of ambience.
He is still learning the system himself and was trying different room types. You could really hear it from the piano.
Wow...that was quite something! It's been a long time since i've seen Mr. Weir looking so engaged, or sounding so fine. In fact, I've never heard him sing better. At several points I found myself—alone, in the privacy of my office—laughing out loud at just how good it all was.
Question for Mr. Kimock, should he check in: who wrote the horn charts? They did nice work (and so did you).
Answer for BlackStrat Fan: as I understand it (and I don't understand it fully) the "slap stick" is used to measure the inherent acoustic response of the room, probably because it's loud enough and has a sharp enough attack that it cuts through the ambient noise level. Based on how it sounds, the techs (or Weir himself) can then alter the characteristics of the sound system to simulate whatever kind of acoustic environment they want—as Weir explained during the intermission, the Meyer system can can make any venue sound like a cathedral, or your living room, or the Grand Canyon, or...well, you get the picture. But the clapper itself is just a calibration device.
It's all about leveraging technology to bring live music to more people. Bob Weir is definitely on to something here. Also, he is SO much better in a relaxed, intimate setting without the noisy crowds and all the other BS. Hopefully Kimock will give his perspective, on TGP, soon.
