I'm asking for ideas on how to get to critical mass on this forum. A couple ideas I've had: 1) I emailed the webmaster at the mackie site asking them to consider posting a link to this forum from their website. Perhaps under a category called resources. Don't know what will happen, there's not a big risk to them if they do, but I'm working for aa corporation right now, and sometimes any risk is enough to kil a good idea. 2) I think as we discover other recording forums, and if it's OK with the hosts, we should post the URL here with a topic of Resource for Mackie HDR2496 Owners, or discussion group for....whatever blows up your skirt. I've posted on the VS-Planet BBS, the Yahoo DHR2496 group and at Ask3dAudio. I'm not too active on the EQ magazine forums, so if anyone else is, maybe you could post there? This forum's interface is the one I'm most comfortable with, coming from the VSplanet, so my goal is to get the critical mass of HDR users here, so we get the expertise concentrated in one spot.
