  1. 100% guarantee that no horn players in 2017 Bloo used IEMs. It was just the front ensemble and quads. Also, pumping in a met to those would be a disaster in drum corps because of changing delay times with their movement. All that is being sent to the in-ears is from other live musicians.
  2. Incorrect. Sampling an entire phrase of brass music is not legal. Sampling each note of a phrase and triggering 1 by 1 IS legal.
  3. At the end of the video it listed all the songs and the appropriate copyright licenses.
  4. Something I’ve not seen mentioned re sync licenses: TIME! The license Flo needs for DVR is the same DCI needs for the Blue Rays. DCI finals is in August, but I’d assume they start working on it as soon as the corps submit their material. DCI doesn’t announce until November at the EARLIEST the stuff they can’t get the rights to. It’s a long and complicated process for one tune, let alone 5-10 per corps times up to what, 30+ corps? Besides the super high costs (and quantity) of the rights themselves, you’re looking at a MONSTROUS lawyer bill to cut the time it takes to acquire them all for even say San Antonio.
  5. That’s what it used to be, I know some shows this year have been 18 (Detroit/Rose Bowl for instance.)
  6. 18 minute interval time before San Antonio, 17 minute interval time after.
  7. It's the same team WGI has been using for a while.
  8. Like DCI finals which Tom Blair produces, Flo itself does not produce WGI finals. They hire the production company that has been doing finals since before Flo existed.
  9. Very important to get a generator with an inverter on it, which is what almost all of the corps are using. In addition to that, most are also using power conditioners (although some use the cheap ones that are just glorified power strips). Most people use backups for synths/mixers etc, but don't put their amps/speakers on battery backup because it would drain the batteries extremely quickly (amongst other reasons that's a terrible idea).
  10. In this DCI rulebook it talks about the power that SHOULD be provided by the venue (often times this spec is not followed, especially at smaller shows). The rulebook also mentions that corps use house power at their own risk, and that in event of a failure, no second performance shall be granted. That being said, almost all groups use their own power (generators), and most have the sensitive equipment (mixers, laptops, synths) on their own battery backups just in case.
  11. The links provided are custom to each user, so when you posted personal link on a public website, someone probably filled it out and hit send before you completed it.
  12. Garrett marched Cavaliers for several years in the early 2000s. This weekend Garrett and his wife were brutally attacked while walking their dog in their neighborhood. They were held up at gunpoint and robbed. Click here for a news article/video (warning, it's disturbing). "Dallas friends, we need help. Today we were told it’s unlikely these criminals will receive anything more than probation. That’s totally unacceptable. Please reach out to (214) 653-3600 or better yet the DA’s campaign Office at http://www.keepfaithjohnsonforda.com. These criminals must be tried as adults and receive 20 years MINIMUM." "Unfortunately today we were made aware that our own city does not support us the way our community and neighbors do. We met w the detective for our case at the DPD and received startling news. It is highly unlikely that these criminals will receive anything more than probation (if that). We appreciate the honesty but refuse to accept that reality. This is not at fault of the brave men and women that protect our city but bc of the DA and more specifically, the Juvenile DA (appointed by the DA). Our detective stated that in his 4 years at DPD, the juvenile DA has not tried a single one of his juvenile cases. They have had juvenile murderers get 5 years probation. A detective specializing in juvenile crimes said the same. This is truly heartbreaking and eye opening. These criminals/this gang, deserve punishment. Their victims, not only us, deserve justice. We are told that won’t happen. This is unjust and disgraceful. If you read this and think ‘oh, I live in ____ and it won’t happen to me.’ You are wrong. The police force is down 800 officers, approx 50%. It can happen to anyone and no one is safe. There are literally not enough officers to protect our city. I urge everyone to share this video clip with audio to anyone and everyone and give the DA’s office no choice but to DO THE RIGHT THING. One of the boys’ own mothers reached out to me with apologies and anger, she wants justice and long term jail time for her son just like we do. It is far from his first offense and was released from some kind of legal custody in APRIL of THIS YEAR. Please share, post, tweet, whatever it takes to make our city protect all citizens from crimes like this."
  13. That’s actually not accurate. “Live looping” is strictly forbidden in the rules. The “loops” were actually played on a sampler note by note.
  14. Worth noting that the rights/fees to stream a piece of music on pandora/spotify are completely different than those required to stream/record DCI shows. This bill should have minimal, if any, effect on the marching arts.
