ever heard of webinars?

usually i consider myself ahead of the game when it comes to cool things technology and what’s the new fad and such. every now and again, however, i do have a lapse in relevant-ness from time to time. and apparently this was such a time.

i got an email the other day from fohonline talking about the latest news in the world of pro audio. i usually just skim over it, and move on to more pressing things like twitter. well, this particular one had an article about digidesign doing “webinars.” (that would be a web-seminar for those of you having trouble. and for jaron.) the guy doing the series of webinars is robert scovill (longtime live sound engineer whose credits include tom petty and matchbox 20), who has been working with digidesign for several years, and in my opinion they’ve developed the sexiest digital console out there. period. if you don’t believe me, see for yourself here or here. i’m not gonna get too geeky with it, but not only is it sound incredible, but they’ve done something no one else has. it’s called “virtual soundcheck.” basically meaning with the click of a button, you flip over to last night’s show or last sunday’s service and it’s like the band was in the room. what an incredible volunteer tool for churches. if i had 40k to drop right at this moment, i would definitely drop it on the profile. and if i had 54k, would definitely drop it on the big daddy d-show. what’s more attractive than a freelance engineer with his own console?
