Hello Everyone,

After discussing this at the zoom meeting last weekend we are now planning to try different types of online Kitchen Open Mic Events! …. and other assorted "live" get togethers.


This Saturday at 8:00 P.M. Amsterdam Time ( 20:00 CET , 2:00 P.M. EDT) we are doing an "Acoustic Open Mic" test run via zoom.
@budhabuilding  has been so gracious to offer his technological support to make this happen.



We will have a few performers this time while we try to get the format and technical issues figured out. This will feature performances by @Layerson , @Pleudoniem , @oorlab … we hope  ;)  , @Monty Cash Music  … we hope  ;) 

( I was hoping that @Mylene and @Rachel_D would perform since they were at our meeting as well. )


This one, the "acoustic kitchen cafe" will be a simple play and sing acoustically into the phone or ipad type of performance.


We are also planning an " electric/electronic kitchen cafe" that we are still working the details on. Finally more "kitchen counter"  pub - type hangouts was suggested by @Pleudoniem … and I think we'll be able to do some of those as well.


We will really appreciate you stopping in even if just for a few minutes on the zoom room. Can you hear it okay? Can you see it okay?
Again this is the test run  ;)  We hope it goes well and can become a part of what we do here in the kitchen.   :)


Many are using this quarantine in a way that is opportunistic to try to sell merch, to promote their music, do a livestream concert, to sell their book, get you to buy their class, etc. … this is not necessarily bad …... but I'm happy to say here in the kitchen we are trying to do something that is non-commercial that just brings people together to create and share. :ok:

Hi guys!

I’ve been trying out my computer and gear, rigging it up and joining a zoom test meeting, works like a charm. However, I’d  like to run everything trough Logic because then it’s gonna sound much better. I’m also using a webcam that can capture audio, but it sounds like I’m in a tin box.

So, my question is, @budhabuilding or @Bill from November Sound or anyone else for that matter, do you know if that would work or will zoom get the audio before in enters Logic?

My acoustic guitar, which has a built in mic, is rigged trough an effects pedal, so that will have wet sound but it would be nice if one could build an audio chain before letting zoom get it to add some limiting and compression.

Worst case scenario you won’t hear what’s ever going on at my side, and that’s probably gonna be an improvement. (I’m gonna play fingerstyle on my guitar, at least for one song. Hopefully the other song too, if I can learn the lyrics by heart in time)

whoa!!! @Layerson  you're going all out!  :)  You're even going to memorize your lyrics?  :D 

Do not worry this is just the test run for fun.  :) This acoustic café will probably be the most low-tech way of kitchen café events.

HI All,

Sorry to be a little late   ::)

Here are some great tips for playing music with Zoom:

@Layerson if you want to route audio you can use software like Soundflower (bit buggy) of other alternatives

Personally i use 2 computers .... or a computer and my iPad
You can use most class compliant USB devices on you're android and ios devices....
Please use a powered hub for fixing power issues

Thank you @budhabuilding for organising all this.
I love to attend, but can only stay for a Very short time. Yes, that’s a pity. But not being able to come would have been worse.

So half an hour is all I have. And I will quietly leave, so I won’t disrupt festivities.

I already look forward to this.
Yesterday Youp van ‘t Hek on TV, today open mic..... Tomorrow our youngest.
Mijn weekend kan niet meer stuck (!).
Kind regards, Gus
