    Hi Rounik, Yes, I was there! It was a real treat. Steve's discussion of cabling in the Environment was straight forward and clear. I love his analogy of Logic's Environment to the basement of a building, where all the electrical wires, pluming, etc. originate and feed up to the rest of the building, or into the Arrange Page, in Logic's case. In making this analogy, Steve clarifies that, although Pro Tools, Ableton, Cubase, etc. all have a basement, Logic is the only DAW that allows access to this basement for truly customizable control of the music-making process. Steve also gave a great demonstration of how to use Logic's Beat Mapping, Exporting, and Flex Editing features to have some great mash-up fun. The demonstration was very well received by the many attendees. Then came the musical performance! Steve, Jordan, and Josh were great! There were many outstanding moments, including Steve and Jordan's demonstration of the new version of MorphWiz, Jordan's very popular music making iPad/iPhone app. However, Steve and Jordan really hit a homerun with their performance of 'Into the Abyss'. They totally gelled on that one, with Steve's Sculpture performance and Jordan's keyboard sounds (much of which were coming from Omnisphere, running through Logic) combining beautifully to create cinematic - type soundscapes worthy of the best of Hollywood! Josh Ott added much to the music with his inventive and original real-time art work, which is performed on an iPad, in concert with the music, on technology that he creates himself. Josh also creates some excellent apps for iPad, such as Thicket, and Snowdrift. The folks at the Soho Apple Store were also very accommodating. Their in-store theatre provides a great venue for the Apple community. Many thanks to Steve, Jordan, Josh, and all involved in putting together a very entertaining, informative evening. You are all shining examples of what a thriving arts community can be!
