A bumper crop of attendees this week, firstly we have Dave Robinson - editor of Pro Sound News Europe, just back from touring soccer stadiums in South Africa, Mark Tinley - sound artist and creative thinker,  Dave Spiers - co-founder of GForce Software,  PJ Tracy  - emmy winning composer from Minneapolis and Rich Hilton award-winning  producer, engineer and player from Nile Rodger's studio.

Synths a plenty in the first topic of the day  - the Vangelis Bladerunner soundtrack and its miriad of emulations, then we're on to the inexplicably popular keyboard drum solo video from DavieMeShow, a talk about recording real hi-hats - remember them? Finally we lament and discuss MTVs loss of the Music Television part of it's title.
Finally, I give you a top tip for getting Windows on the cheap.
