What else does it need?
Would this be something that could in theory be used for sound editing, or is it a completly different beast, I ask ignorantly?

Not everyone that might have an objection to setting aside those tables for a specific project reads these forums, and technically Steve has the authority to represent the interests of the full membership in matters like this.

And I'd like to show that this is the case. I know about the interest from going around and talking to people (both within hackfactory and the community at large). Part of the point of this thread should be for people to speak up about their support or dissent for this project and the reasons why.rigger wrote:the project should include a design process that minimizes the footprint, simplifies the "UI", and maximizes the usability.
The thought of NOT doing this has literally not even crossed my mind up to this point. To not do so would be irresponsible and frivolous. Rest assured that this will be the case.rigger wrote:Taking up a "corner of the classroom" on a full time basis doesn't work for me given my current suspicions about how much (or rather little) use this equipment will receive.

arthur.science wrote:As for whether or not it makes sense to add more equipment when an existing setup needs to be re-organized, I would argue that this is actually the BEST TIME to integrate new hardware. What would NOT MAKE SENSE is to disassemble all connections, figure out your signal paths, reconfigure current hardware, set it all up, and then DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN so that you can incorporate new hardware (which inevitable changes signal paths).
