    I don't live in Australia. You should've made this clear at the onset. Where you ask for what I think a reasonable price is, you limit the answer to three digits. Why? I need to explain my suggestion. $200 for a one day pass is too much in my head but $300 for a three day pass would be good.

    The Real Link to the survey (this board uses BBcode, not HTML tags).

    **I already edited this earlier? It said "You cannot make another post so soon after your last"

    i need to know about you, before i can say how it will benefit you.

    tell me what what would benefit you? we want to know what people want before we start organizing and planing

    Home Page:
    as codemonkey says, his suggestion is the best way to link, or... post the url the way it is, avoid the html <a>, and the board will do link like so

    I like the way audiokid did the link
    except when the link gets stupid long

    you get to see where the page might be living

    this can help tell you IF you want to go there
    and who might be running the site
    ... vested interests and all that stuff

    not suggesting the surveymonkey is anything more than ... say a PHP-Nuke for forum software
    but here it is for building an online survey

    I'll shut up now

    back to the audio

    ok we are all good about the coding of the link

    lets get back to the convention and what your experiences from previous ones are, and what you want to see at a new one

    you can fill out our survey to help


    or just talk about it here.

    cheers ;)

    I tend to buy gear from people I know
    ... and go to their factory to see it being built

    the software I already have/chosen ... might be different if I needed to change

    the change from AVID to FCP happened as a result of both price and pressure from customers

    I like venues where I can park the car

    can't give a dollar figure as I can't justify the entry price anyway
    the only conventions I go to are the ones where someone else paid for me

    Pro equipment and Home Studio equipment is the same thing to me
    it's just a reflection of budget and I'm more likely to use cheap gear on the professional jobs as i need to make a profit
    the jobs for the love of it get the best gear

    you can't hear gear at conventions anyway

    I'd go to a convention to meet people
    Roland and Korg can be there but so what
    we can get info from the net
    If JLM Audio is there ...will Joe himself be there
    If Buzz Audio is there ... wil Tim be there

    Manley ... Eveanna or Hutch ... that's a long shot for Australia

    but you get my drift

    Crane Song ... ooo Dave Hill
    now I'd go for a chat with Dave

    GreatRiver and a chat with Dan and a discount on a single channel EQ

    I've been attending the AES conventions in NYC exclusively, for the last 36 years. Nothing will compare to the middle to late 1970s at the Waldorf-Astoria. What do you mean you can't listen to anything? It was quite easy in all those lovely suites, on the upper floors. Not bad at the Hilton either. Especially when they kept the alcohol flowing! It made everything sound so much better as it wasn't even a single malt mix but I'd say well blended overall! The listening tests were more effective since the rooms were relatively quiet. Now that was a convention!

    Like others, I'd only go since I always got free passes. I never bothered with the lectures although I did wander into a few (not having paid to attend). I really don't give a crap about the technicalities of audio. Only the sound. So the lectures really don't interest me as it's too much technical blah blah. I have however spoken to a lot of manufacturers. This is one of the reasons why I'm NOT IMPRESSED with Digi design. Especially this past October. I hung out at other booths where I could have more intelligent conversation with knowledgeable people. For such a deep program (ProTools), their experts are unimpressive. At least I find them rather inarticulate.

    Not interested in other audio conventions nor ProTools.

    Big sound!!! Help needed, speed bump problem.

    Ok has any one heard of Big Sound in Brisbane or better yet has any one been to it. would like to know more about, because it could be a competitor that is very poorly marketed or we could use it via cross promotion to draw more customers from.

    cheers marketing team for M.A.T.A. (Music and Audio Trade-show Australia)
