I took these pictures on the last day of the MIDAS XL8 USA rollout in Albuquerque a few weeks ago and I promised not to post them right away because there was a second groud of invited guests that they wanted to surprise and then I forgot I had them until today.
Check out the new Blue mics we have been testing around Careysound, here we have the Blueberry and the Bluebird strutting their stuff in the studio and... hey, wait a minute... that guy looks familiar... oh it's none other than our multi talented manager Dale spending an afternoon in the studio. Maybe, just maybe if you ask nice he will let you hear how the recording came out. How about it Dale?
A Day In Pictures
Apparently my name has been changed to Rob.
On to the show.
The stage is set.
From humble beginnings. Are those Lego blocks on those 2X4's?
The MIDAS touch.
You have to be tall to see over the crowd.
Hands on. A magical experience.
Yes, It Is Rocket Science.
Back on the bus.
A little out of the way spot for dinner.
Real SoundMen eat Mexican food. The was no can in this Mexican.
Oh, so that's why they said to bring along a jacket. Wish I would have listened.
A dramatic end to an amazing day.
Let the sales commence.
Details to follow when I can get a little sleep.
All good saga's begin with the sun rising at dawn and so does this one. I think someone forgot to tell MIDAS that real SoundMen don't do 7 am breakfast calls (or at least not in my version of a SoundMan) unless they are just getting to bed from the day before, but yet, here we are. So quit complaining man. There are new digital trails to blaze. westward wagons ho and all that... hey wait a minute. why did they say bring a jacket? This is the desert southwest isn't it? Oh well - when in Albuquerque...
What's wrong with this picture?
I've got a special prize for the first person to help this electrician out
and tell him where he went wrong.
In Greensboro the Regency Room was the host to the Afro-Cuban sounds of BioRitmo as part of the Piedmont Jazz and Blues Festival series coordinated by the Eastern Music Festival. The rental departments EV Qrx system with a MIDAS Venice provided the audio for the event with none other than Ken Carey at the controls.
And keeping it all in the family across the other side of the state John Carey took the night off from his new job at the Flying Anvil to engineer for The North Carolina Jazz Repertory Orchestra.
Founded in early 1993, by James Ketch and Gregg Gelb, The North Carolina Jazz Repertory Orchestra has already established a name for itself as one of the great jazz repertory orchestras now playing. The audio magic for that event was CareySound's Dynacord Cobra system.
Spring once again welcomes the Piedmont Jazz & Blues Festival to downtown Greensboro. This years festivities began last Saturday with Professor Jazz performing at the Renaissance Jazz Café and continued tonight with Gypsy Jazz II at Solaris Tapas and The PJBF Benefit at Greensboro's newest downtown night spot the Flying Anvil.
Small town charm, big city music. Greensboro's celebration of jazz & blues.
The annual event is a collection of independently produced concerts coordinated by the Eastern Music Festival. You can find the festival schedule of events by clicking here.
Pete, Brian and Andrew, partners in the Flying Anvil, are great guys with a great vision and deserve your support.
