Re: emmersive sound

One of the best shows I've ever played was a private little "chill rave" 
called WOOM.  It was great because they had really nice Mackie monitors 
in each corner of the room, as well as a pair pointing at the DJ area 
where we were playing.  With no feedback to worry about, it was great 
having speakers in behind us by a good 15 feet.  Also, I was processing 
my loops through both a Vortex and an Alesis AirFX, both which do very 
nice stereo processing.

Made me want to go right out and get a pair of those Mackie's I must 
say.  Maybe when I get my tax refund...
