    Excellent group of people with tons of awesome projects! Had a great time, and loved the venue too. I especially like that there are giveaways of synth products to play around with.

    it was great to meet all of you. I will have some of my gear at the Macspa in Denver on August 25. The MacSpa is located in at 739 Wyncoop in Denver. The event starts at 11:00 am and is free. The purpose is to get folks together for a hands on experience with synths and related instruments. The will also be a Moog Theremin there as well. I look forward to future meet ups and also want to get to learning Ableton.

    I've got James slotted in to do a demo on the Dave Smith Tempest analog drum synth. I have one giveaway for the drawing lined up so far - Tone2's new Saurus virtual synth. I'll have a second synth soon.
