Hi everyone, Two big announcements.
Relaunch of RockyMountainSynth.com
I just relaunched a completely refreshed dedicated website for the meetup. I worked hard to make it super groovy and I hope it will help us attract even more like-minded synth enthusiasts and help potential venues better understand what we’re about.
The new site has a News Blog which will act as a communications hub. I’ll also be adding a media gallery (that’s way better than the one on meetup.com), free downloads (like soundsets and cheat sheets,) notes and links from past events, a resources page, and I’ll be bringing back the “Member Music” playlists.
To be clear, this online resource is meant to enhance real-time events – not to create another online community with forums and such. Real-time is where it’s it at, man 😎.
Swing by https://RockyMountainSynth.com and check it out and while you are there, please take a moment to subscribe to our News Blog so you can stay up to date on news and announcements for upcoming events.
New Online Events – Woo Hoo!
We will be expanding event options to include real-time online events.
Save the date! Our first online event will be Wednesday March 11th at 7PM MST. I’ll send an official announcement via the News Blog and via a meetup.COM
You’ll be able to join with voice and video using your MAC, PC, iPhone, iPad or Android. Hosts and presenters will be able to share video, audio, and screenshare. Certain events will feature live performances.
These will be in addition to our face-to-face events. To help differentiate between face-to-face and online events Victoria Lundy of Cuttlefish Arts has designed a variation of our logo and made me a groovy virtual background for the video conferencing system.
Our new virtual event format will allow us to:
- Keep up a momentum while we skip snowy months, navigate the fascinating and complex world of booking rooms, and dodge viruses
- Bring in interesting remote presenters
- Reconnect with past members who have moved away from the Boulder / Denver Area
- Stay connected with our current members who may not be able to make it to a face-to-face event
- Offer optional focused breakout events on more esoteric topics
- Thanks to Victoria Lundy for consulting on art direction and copy for the site
- Eddie Corcoran for help with reviewing the web site
- Eddie, Darwin Grosse, Tim Thompson, and Mike Bryant for helping me troubleshoot the email opt-in system
Huge thanks to Jeanne Mosher, Victoria Lundy, Eddie Corcoran, Victor John, Malia Martinez, and Gregg Cannady for offering feedback end ideas on the usage and testing of the video online conferencing system.
Stay tuned for more,
