I've been a member here for a little over a year and I've made some great friends so far.

I live and work in Los Angeles..

I'm sure a lot of other people who frequent this site do, too...

We can also meet halfway in Las Vegas...

And I might be going to the East Coast soon.. Florida for sure, at least.

Or we could all buy plane tickets to New Zealand and surprise Tim. heh. And from there, ya'all can hop in my G6 and we can fly over to South Africa and see Andrew.

But, I was also thinking, the studio I work at has about 25 Mac laptops. I could set them up all in a circle in my studio and skype everyone and we can see/talk to each other. Hah! (joke)

Anyone thought of a meet up before? Would be nice to meet some of you.

  • I was fortunate enough to meet some of the guys during my stay in New York :) – Filipe Chagas Aug 23 '11 at 11:50

I vote for a meetup scheduled around a tower implosion in Vegas. Then afterwards, we all share the files.

Adding onto Jay's idea, what if we meet up around a big sound event like a tower implosion or stadium collapse, and then turn it into the source for a live Sound Design Challenge!

Or do another scavenger hunt one like this past month's. It could be fun to have all of us running around some city with our gear! Maybe break out into teams too? Just some fun activity ideas for the meetup itself :)

I live in Salt Lake City, and my budget is pretty limited, but I could probably swing Las Vegas.

If we plan it around a convention, it gives people traveling farther the incentive, but it also means hotels may be more expensive.

  • Good idea and agreed. When is the next large shin-dig? AES? – Utopia Aug 23 '11 at 4:34
  • AES, then Winter NAMM (I believe)... – Dave Matney Aug 23 '11 at 13:32

  • I went to the second one, it was pretty good man! You should try and get down to the next one! – Fred Pearson Aug 23 '11 at 21:09
  • Wasn't in the country for the first one and my wife was ill on the second one. Determined to get to the third! Isn't there one planned for September? – ianjpalmer Aug 24 '11 at 7:06

I happy to meet up with anyone if there close to one of the most isolated metro cities on earth... 'Perth, WA, Australia'... It appears to be incredibly far from everything... :( But great for environmental sounds! :)

I believe there's a group trying to get started over on the sound_design yahoo group as well. I bet if you joined forces you could get a decent turn out.

I'll be in LA starting Jan 2012 and would love a chance to put some faces to names. In the meantime, @MixingManiac will be out there starting in Sept and I am positive she'd be down for a meetup too.

EDIT:

Just wanted to give this post a nudge. I'm in LA now and it would be awesome to put some faces and names to the handles. After the unfortunate passing of Seann Flynn in early December, I don't know if the LA Sound Group will continue or not. I do hope that it does. It sounded like a great crew of peers that I was really looking forward to be a part of.

  • I met your wife at the LA Sound Group I went to. – Utopia Jan 12 '12 at 4:40
  • So I was told @Utopia. That's part of the reason I was looking forward to more of them. Although I do like @KathieT's idea of being out of our caves and in the wild. – Steve Urban Jan 12 '12 at 9:55
