    Amping the brass line

    I think many people can tell when the brass is amped or live, however if you mix a live horn line with a pre recorded horn line and it's done well, it's very hard to tell.

    Corps goals/ideas for 2016?

    I have been in LOS when a band was playing with the roof open and I really didn't notice a difference. I'm also not sure that if the roof was open you would be able to have all the black fabric to dampen the sound. If it was possible to have both, then it would be worth trying to do, but without all the black curtains I don't think opening the roof would help. The other problem with opening the roof is that it puts all these shadows on the field that I don't think people would like that would be there for the majority of the performances.

    Attendance SHAZZAM!

    A few years ago, Michael Cesario made a big plea for drum corps to entertain the fans more. Five years ago I would only really like 2-3 shows in the top 12. Now, I basically like them all, as well as the 13-15 shows and the 16-18 shows, etc. In the past, there would be a lot of shows I wouldn't care if I missed, but now I don't really want to miss anyone. The shows are all also very different. There was a time it seemed every corps was trying to use the same formula, but now it seems every group has their own style, more so than in years past.

    Electronics 2015 - Good and Bad

    As long as we have indoor performance venues, electronics will be necessary. Indoors, it's impossible to have enough tubas to create the amount of sound needed when playing backfield. Outdoors this is not an issue as much because the tuba sound would bounce off the concrete bleachers on the visitors side. I feel like this year, the groups are doing a much better job blending their electronics sound in with the brass and percussion. Those that aren't either are doing it on purpose because their show has an electronics theme to it, or the sound person didn't get the volumes right for the venue they were in. One thing I has found to be true, don't ever sit low on the 35 yard line...

    San Antonio Lineup

    Actually, you are incorrect. The Troopers go on 1:08 after Colts, who they haven't lost to all season and beat by 3.90 two nights ago. The Troopers go on 1:25 after the Academy who they have beaten all year until last night when they won by .25. The Troopers go on 1:42 after the Blue Stars who they lost to by .85 last night and .5 the night before. The Troopers will be just fine. If any corps is going on too late, it is the Colts, not the Troopers.
