and I was happy in that one of the larger festivals in the world has adopted
the double hung PA concept and an honor that something I spent so much effort
on, is catching on. And saddened a bit as well that the company did the press
releases as if they had come up with the concept on their own. Which is entirely
a feasible possibility as the idea of a side by side PA makes a lot of common
sense. Had I not been at that same festival:
on the last Peppers tour while touring with a double hung PA, I discussed the
concept with that same company, it's feasibility and advantages. Otherwise,
I would have given them the benefit of the doubt that they stumbled on the same
idea. That is not to say that the Peppers tour was the only time versions of
a dual system have been implemented, though to the best of my knowledge, the
Peppers tour was the first time it was implemented to increase the headroom
and clarity of a large scale line array system.

So, what else is up? Well, I thought this was cool. A 6 Stroke gasoline engine
that improves efficiency by adding water injection and expansion strokes while
increasing cooling and eliminating the radiator

Me? well, I have been reading emails and notes an such sent to me but lax on
responding much. So strange how time slows down and all the gaps fill when I
stop moving around the world quickly. The question I so often heard, "Where
do you get all the time to write the blog?" is now one I find myself asking.
Speaking of time and being honored, I am taking the time to travel up to AES
as I have been asked to speak on a workshop forum discussing microphone techniques.
Fair enough, I can handle talking about that and what is really cool is that
I will be on the forum with none other than Dan Healy. Some may ask "Who
is this Dan Healy guy?" Well, Dan not only mixed the Grateful Dead for
many years but also was involved in developing the "Wall Of Sound"
