Of all the stuff brought, I think it was totally my apple pie that stole the show cool.gif

 

I'll have a couple pics later when I find the card reader for my camera. I totally forgot to take a group shot of everyone, but took a couple shots of all the gear.


Yes, and yes.

Mind if I throw those pics up in MuppetFace's thread. That's where I usually hang out 75% of the time. I've already thrown up some raving concerning the HE-6 and the DT990 paired with the Crack and the Compass

crust:

2 cups of flour

1 banana

1/2 cup butter

1/4 cup sugar

1 egg

a few shakes of salt

a capful of balsamic vinegar (optional)

a smaller capful of vanilla

 

- melt butter in microwave, mix in sugar, egg, salt, vinegar, vanilla

- mash banana, add to butter mixture

- add the whole thing to the flour, mix until dough

- take 3/4 of the dough, roll it out flat, smoosh into a pan, it will be pretty elastic so account for shrinkage

- put in the oven at 350°F for maybe 5-10 minutes just to dry it out a bit

 

Filling:

a whole bunch of apples, I dunno how many, keep cutting until it looks like it'll fill the shell

I don't even bother peeling them

sprinkle with cinnamon, shake 'em all around

sprinkle with flour, shake 'em all around

put into the now half-baked pie shell

spoon in whatever jam you can find sitting in your fridge (grape or strawberry works well)

 

Now take the remaining 1/4 of dough and roll it flat, cut into strips, arrange into a lattice.

Put it back in the oven for half and hour.

 

Kablammo, pie goodness in just over an hour.

Sure thing. I'll try and remember to put pics up tomorrow.

Random question: anyone here have a cheap (and not totally crappy) wireless headphone for sale?

The only face in all the pics: Andrew at the upper left plugging in one of the big Audio-gd opamps into his Compass

headphones on the table from top left:

Senn HD25-13-ii, Beyerdynamic DT770pro, Beyerdynamic DT990, Sony V900, vintage something, AKG K240 Sextett

Monoprice 8323, M-Audio Q40, AKG K272HD, Pioneer HDJ-2000, Fostex T50rp

At this point I figured the table was way too cluttered with all the cables, so one ingenious use of a box later...

I agree, it was a very fun concert!  Neil Peart, what a machine!  Also, I love how quirky they are, ex. having washing/drying machines on stage for every show, etc.  I'll definitely try to get tickets again when they come back next!

I love how he has 2 completely separate kits - the acoustic kit on the one side, and the electronic one on the other.  So many possibilities!!  

 

Lots of drummers that have lots of drums just hide behind them, but that is definitely not the case with him.  My favorite solo of the night was the one where he started with just the bass drum and the snare, and moved out from there!

Crazy how me and you seem to go through the same stages of gear replacement. I just received a Studio V Player yesterday and although the UI can be buggy it sounds quite good.
