iOS musician meet-ups?

Saw that Ableton has this: https://www.ableton.com/en/community/user-groups/

Is there anything similar for iOS music makers? If not, would it be something that could be set up via the wiki? Or are we too rare a species for it to work? I suppose outside of big cities it would be difficult.

Still, I think it would be great to have some real life iOS musician meetings. Possibly even an open-mic kind of scenario (if for no other reason than to have an understanding audience when an app crashes...)

  • @johnfromberkeley and I had an SF Bay Area meetup a couple years back. It was fun - we should do it again.

    And in December. Hoping to have a meetup this summer!

  • We should do some sort of annual iOS Musician meetup in Atlanta. There's gotta be at least a hundred iOS musicians in Atlanta on Instagram alone. Now, if we could only get @Brice to do a sound design tutorial at one...

  • Sounds fun! I’m a bit too far away to join you though (Ireland). That’s why I was thinking a list on the wiki might work. So that whoever wants to organise something in their area could leave a contact email. Possible wiki article title: “Desperate iOS musicians in your area are waiting to meet you”...

    If you're headed someplace for a trip or something, just start a thread here and see if anyone is up for a beer. That's how I got to meet these rather handsome fellows. :)

    Of course, same goes for your home town—just start a thread here and see who's around. We did one here in PDX several years ago (like, AB1 days!) and it was quite fun. Did it at a massive not-too-popular brew pub on a weekday night so that we could find a big table near an outlet and use a little jambox without annoying other people.

    Clever, essentially “local chapters.”

  • I had one here in Mid Wales a few months back - me, three sheep and a scarecrow. Aside from a row about AU vs IAA, it was a good day.

    I hope you've recorded the session so we can profit from the insights :#

    I recorded a bit, but they're just bleating on about deprication :(

    Hope you didn't play any repetitive beats...that would have been classed as a rave and you would have had your ipad confiscated and destroyed !

    Bravo :D .... I missed that one

  • He got baahed anyway...

  • You must've been using BleatMaker 3.

  • or Traktor DJ. Alright, I think this has gone farm enough. No more hoe-ribble puns.

  • @analog_matt well that's 2 for Atlanta. Not sure of a place to have it though. For free anyway. Reserve a pavilion at a park? Gwinnett has some really awesome parks.
