New rig!

So, I made a thing.

Completed rig sitting in office/studio

Every so often you just have to rip your studio apart and start over.  During the last year, like everyone else, I did a lot of livestreaming.  As a result I added a bunch of video capability, got a better understanding of how to make some parts of my setup better, and generally messed around with both audio and video.   I got some good work out of it, but I also got such an ungodly tangle of cables and power cords that I was scared it’d become self-aware.  And the iConnect MIDI4+ I’d used as my interface for five years or more was starting to give me grief.   At the very least I needed to rip down the accumulated cabling mess and start over.   But… with the pandemic loosening its grip, and the prospect of some possible live shows

You could send someone an email in Markdown, and they wouldn’t have a clue that it was also something a piece of software could turn into a decent web page. I like Markdown for appropriate uses. I’ve been urging Facebook to support Markdown so that their posts could have simple styling and links. But is it useful as an interchange format for outlines?
