Monday, September 27th, 2010

The first BARMMAP event at Pyramind in San Francisco and the first of a planned series of community mixing meetups. The event has been built around a suggestion by Chris Porro that members of the BARMMAP community all get the same raw files to mix. People may volunteer to send their mixes to me so that I may collect them all in one spot.

Past Event – Audio Myths or Audio Missed??

This BARMMAP John Defiore will be offering a presentation exploring common perceptions and potential misconceptions of audio equipment (like does this fancy cable make a difference and how about wooden knobs? $100 converter and $1000 converter?), human listening anomalies, and more.
