Welcome to issue #36 of Tape Op.
I gotta tell you about the second annual Tape Op Conference, which was held at the end of May in Portland, OR. It was a blast, with around 600 people turning out from all over the world. We had panels and workshops on all sorts of audio-geekery — from mics to acoustics to maintaining one's health. The excitement of the attendees was exhilarating (I know, I rarely slept), and the sharing of information, knowledge, tips and such was non-stop — along with the excellent shows at night. Craig and John and I felt like it was much stronger than the first year's Con, and we're already working on ideas for next year — it's gonna be even better! Look for TapeOpCon2004 in New Orleans, May 28-30. www.tapeopcon.com
Thanks again to our event sponsors and all the people who made it out to the conference! You're the ones who made this all possible.
