I haven't been on the forums or at the space for about 30 hours.
This is the first I've heard of audio stuff moving from the basement into the classroom.
Was there a problem with the basement?
As far as what the classroom is going to be used for, the discussions I've been part of over the last 10 months or so have concluded "everything", that is, as much as possible, and a great variety of things.
The classroom has been our "flex space", where all kinds of different stuff can happen. We need to have a room that can be used to teach classes, and can be rearranged on the fly. There's a lot of stuff that has to happen away from contamination, under light, and near power, internet, and computers. That's what the classroom is.
That's one of the major reasons we've made so much effort to get a lot of dead weight and crap out of there. (I say "we", I've helped haul a lot of it out.)
I"m not opposed to having an audio whatever set up in there, especially if it's been vetted by John S. and McSteve.
I will say, I'd like for it to be as mobile and rearrange-able as possible.
I did see the forum post 5 weeks ago about an audio mixing setup getting built downstairs. I haven't seen anything from Adam until these recent posts.
Please take this as an example that even people who are invested in an outcome might not notice when this stuff is just posted on the forums.
I'm not saying don't do it; I am saying be prepared for a massive outcry of "what the frack" from the 80% of our current members who don't read the forums. (That's the percentage I think I was told by people who sounded like they knew; Most of the folks I talk to when I'm at the space don't get on the forums.)
