Ed Bauman and I took a road trip on Tuesday to join up with a small group of Reason Users in Los Angeles for the first official meeting of the LARUG. Ed had a pretty long drive down to my place, and then he endured the second 5 hour drive from San Juan to LA. All things considered, we made pretty good time for the 300 mile trip.
Kenny M. organized the meeting at the PF Changs Restaurant in the Beverly Center. Since Ed and I were cutting it close, we drove straight to the restaurant and were the first to arrive. When we checked in with the hosts, they asked us to explain about the “Reason User Group”. I guess to civilians, it sounds somewhat like a MENSA meeting.
It was an interesting group of users who ranged from people learning to use Reason, to people who work for different companies in the music industry. We sat for hours just talking about music and software and eventually the laptops came out and we played around with different combi patches. Ed demonstrated a few of his ReCover tunes and I showed my Beat Repeater Combi (which will be public knowledge next week).
This was a great meeting and I’m looking forward to future LA events. Next time we will try to get more guys from the SF group to head down and maybe have a mini-jam.
