  1. I cannot locate any recent information on the topic. With so much having changed this year for media consumption involving DCI, I'm concerned at the absence of even a fleeting recognition of such products being available this fall for pre-order or otherwise. Did I miss something??
  2. Anyone else having feed problems? Better not going down the OK snafu path again...

    TOC - Broken Arrow, OK - July 18

    Hey @flomarching, why is the peak audio only hitting -24db on my analyzer? It should be approaching -3db. Is this seriously what we're going to get? Do I need to travel with the team and actually give your customers what they are paying for?

    Okay. Flo is just trolling us now, right?? No audio AGAIN???

    and they just turned it way down. What amateurs. I can't believe we have been reduced to this.

    ...and no audio. Thanks again Flo Why did DCI go this route again?? I saw the mic placement and it makes sense why the pit sound is coming from a car speaker...

    Agreed on poor sound quality. What is it that we're paying for?

    APDs are up

    Where is the BASS??? Having listened to the on-demand videos from the Akron show, I enthusiastically awaited the APD's because for the first time in YEARS I was able to hear [and feel] the strike of the front ensemble bass drum. Anyone who has listened to DCI rips for the last 10-15 years and has a good stereo system knows what I'm talking about. I understand that with the addition of the synth in the mid/late 2000's, much of the bass has gone away but please leave something for us that counter silly kids bumping their rap music with some blasting DCI and hard hitting bass that makes us chuckle in their WTF moment as we roll by... [yes, I'm 34 and still blasting DCI on my daily commute] In all seriousness, in the absence of 'drumcat' I don't know that we have a direct line to DCI as we used to, but if your making the APD's and reading this, please consider our request. On another note, it is great to see DCI continuing my request of making a single ZIP file when bundles are purchased instead of one-by-one downloading...

    More Licensing Issues

    I'm glad to have bought the Semi-Finals APD's. I know there not nearly as refined as the published CD's will be, but at least I have the complete PERFORMED content for my listening enjoyment as well as anyone in a 100 foot radius or so if its nice outside! Anyone remember the days of the Finals CD's being published in a matter of a couple weeks after the season ended? To DCI (because I know you guys read this forum): I wouldn't want to be in your shoes with all the licensing nightmares-- 10 years ago corps weren't using 10 or 15+ different pieces in some sort of derivative fashion; Thank You for the diligence in making due with what you have. EDIT: On an interesting note, all the previous shows of copyright challenged material have been pulled from the entire year of performances on the Fan Network. This isn't okay.
  10. Many thanks for the bundle. Such a pain to get each one at a time...

    WORKAROUND: When you get to the download page, right-click and “save target as” and manually download them. It’s not as clean as the single hyperlink click method, but still effective. NOTE: It would be very nice if DCI wrapped those into a single downloadable package. Maybe a .zip or .rar file. Michael

    …still holding breath for San Antonio APD's too. Streaming them is not necessarily the best way when you live/drive in the sticks... I know the DCI Audio guy is a regular on this board!

    2010 DCI Tickets: WHEEEEEEEE!

    I stopped going to finals every year since they started extorting people by making you "buy-up" for the best access. Anyone remember waiting all night in some hotel lobby to get finals tickets for the next year!?!? Those were the days!!!
  15. From the 8th row in the 50, that was a mean hit! She got on off the field and stayed in bounds but after about 30 seconds she touched her head and came back with a hand full of blood. In many years, I haven't seen such an injury! Only after that point did a staff member help her off the field and to the tunnel (mid-show). There was quite a spot left on the front where she was kneeling. OUCH! I hope she'll be in for the remainder of the season!
