Want to share what you’ve been working on? Been working on something in Ableton Live? Got a computer program, or a synth patch, or a special electronic instrument? Or, just want to see what a lot of other people are doing and have a chance to learn from them? Come on out! We’ll have a table for you to set up on. Bring your headphones for maximum enjoyment!
Want to try out playing or demonstrating in front of a live audience? There will also be a round of “open PA” time, where you can take the stage during a 5 minute time slot to demo or play what you brought. (Be sure you have a 1/4″ or XLR output)

Our March Meetup generated some great ideas for upcoming topics. Since the June meetup will be held in a software factory, we thought it would be fitting to have the theme be “programming”. We’re applying some creative license to the interpretation of this theme, so you could see presentations or show-and-tells on anything from programming beats and melodies (sequencing) to DSP (Digital Signal Processing). Details will come soon, stay tuned! Comment below if you have other future topic suggestions, or ideas for presentations (including your own presentation or show-and-tell!).
