During recent conversations with Phil, an idea was mooted that we record the Bridport 2014 meet on a multitrack. Piles has a digital 8 channel interface and an ADAT machine (or two). We simply put up eight mics and record it all.
3 or 4 of those mics will be output to the PA mixer as usual. We do not need to send drum/bass/guitar feeds to the PA as the venue is so little.

The Piles has a few SM57/58s for the rough and ready stuff, if someone has a couple of extra boom stands for overheads, or a real bass drum mic, we are off and running..

Thoughts gentlemen please, some may not want their "off the cuff" sonic explorations documented for the assembled motley, others may wish the opposite..
Your feedback, of all kinds, is welcome..:D

It will be no hassle Tom. I've got plenty of gear I can bring down with the PA.

Anyone know what the Bridport dates are for next year? I need to get them in the diary early this time - missed it once and not planning to miss it again.

Hi Liam.
The dates booked for the 2014 meet are the Fri 16th and Sat17th of May..
If we held it a week later it would have been on the bank holiday weekend and not only would there be a shortage of accommodation if not not booked well in advance, but also prices would shoot up.

Really looking forward to seeing you next year.. You are a bloody whizz on that PA stuff...:dude:

Me too - love the lot of you. :) I'm going to book the Friday off from work tomorrow, and that way nothing should be able to stop me this time.

Lucky Phuckers.......I'd love to be at this thing.

It's the 5000 miles, (8000 km's) that's the hold up.
:laugh2:

It's farther for me to get to the east coast of Canada then it is to hop the pond.......sigh.

Hope to make it someday though.

Ha. I used to play at the Crown once a month until Simon decided he wanted a change. Been meaning to get over to the new jam sessions there, just haven't haven't the time.

Sounds great. Sadly about as far away from me as it's possible to get while still being in the same country.

Plenty of us travel quite a way for this one - and it's worth the trip. Over the last few years we've had attendance from all over Europe, and even from the USA. And there was me thinking it was a long way to drive from Lancashire first time around!

Train fair would be over £100. Not really possible for me I'm afraid.

There will be people from Yorkshire and Tyneside passing Derby on their way down. You could always cadge a lift. I'd offer myself, but Derby's quite a big detour for me.

Just a thought.

I would really enjoy us all going to the pub the night before, get to know each other, get a few song ideas for the weekend, and we can chat shit about music and guitars over a few beers.

Also, if you need a place to stay (shameless plug, I'm a barman there) look up the Bridport Arms. It's a ten minute walk from the Crown. Lovely rooms right on the beach, a bit pricey but worth it.

That is where everyone will be staying, same as past few years, I believe. Having you as barman could come in handy :laugh2:
