Thanks Bruce and dj.
Would like to see a demo on how to mix a song using Audacity.
Also a discussion on how to best control the flow of people who come to see your show.
Is it best to have say a long 30-40 minute show or break it up,into 5-10 minute shows with a few minute gap of not much happening in between.......stuff like that.

do we think its worth recording the presentations and uploading them? I can bring my gear.
Whilst we have tried to in the past and Syd do a MUCH better job of this, I think the point of the mini is for the audience that is physically there. There are more than enough videos already on YT and forums that would cover some of the topics already suggested here. It's a bit annoying to get everyone mic'd up to ensure the video is worth watching so IMO, its one less thing to worry about and we can concentrate on the people who are there. If you want to learn first-hand, come along one & all!

A topic I’d like to hear more on, is how others attach lights/props to their house or trees. Not just the fixings, but designing props for ease of installation.

I’d also like to see how certain sequencing effects were done. I’ve seen some good effects, but couldn’t work out how they were done.
