(Thank goodness for ST on this site: Nuts and Bolts, 24/7. Never fails to stick to the meat-and-potatoes, yet still be entertaining. Basically, he IS this site.)
I read nothing substantial about this system in this "Conference" thread. I don't think I even saw a picture of an L1, let alone a substantive mention of one. Please refer me to the substantive posts I obviously missed. I saw a lot of flowers, and some people stretching at dawn.
So where is the posted text of all the meaningful and/or relative presentations from this Conference? Or the videos? Or an Admin post stating that they are coming soon?

Eve shot most of the presentations and we are in the process of downloading the data and will begin the editing process. It takes much longer than posting the photos.
I am guilty of posting photos that I feel capture the gestalt of the conference. I realize that they can be far astray from the technical aspects of the L1 system. And I think you are right that they are most valued by the attendees. Still, we know from past conferences that many are inspired to attend future conferences because of reading about the very positive experiences folks have had. I feel that the photos help to convey the value of these gatherings.
With best regard,
I guess for me it is a "You had to be there thing". I had never seen anyone using a L1 until this conference. I saw a full band down to just acoustic instruments and everything in between. There was a vast amount of information at this conference and I know will take the people in charge time to gather it all together into something that is informative to all, if you were there or not. I can understand that for those of you who could not make it that a lot of post seem like inside jokes but it is not meant that way. We were all pumped about this event including the Bose people and even the past attendees. I feel it went beyond all expectations. I encourage everyone to try and go the next one or whenever they can make it. As for L1’s in pictures there are plenty to be seen.
As Tom Munch said..."it's about the music isn't it?"
The L1 is a music delivery system, it doesn't make music on it's own, people make the music.
Everyone who played or sang in North Carolina blew me away, and not just because they were good musicians, but because each one had something unique and different that belonged to him or her.
So I hope you'll forgive us for gushing in our own little corner of the forums.
The L1s of course worked great, the T1s made things really easy, swapping players around all day and night.
I could go on and on about the L1, but you know all that.
The gatherings, to me, are about meeting the guys at Bose and the folks making the music.
It was just a really nice vacation too.
That was the first time, I heard 4 L1's, with Cliff's band. It was great. We walked around in front of and behind each musician in Cliff's demo. The field of presence, without volume overload, was definately something one had to experience firsthand. Sorry, great memories can be discussed, but reality is being there.
I got to jam on my bass with around 7 musicians, a wonderful experience. The clarity and definition was there, with no struggle or volume battle.
I got to meet some truly talented and very nice people. I felt that everyone had something to offer, the biggest was friendship and camaraderie.
I now understand what it is like to be at a conference, as opposed to hearing about one.
If I come home from this conference and change/improve just one thing, as I now feel inspired to do. It was well worth it.
Funny you should single out ST. If you read posts from previous conferences you'll find that he is just as affected as any of us, & that's not a bad thing. The community we have created & the brotherhood we have is essential to the kind of support we give & the philosophy of fairness that is the foundation of this forum. The initial afterglow of any of our conferences is overwhelming gratitude for our fellow musicians & then later it gets down to brass tacks about what we learned technically.
The L1 Users conferences were first conceived by a few L1 owners who met on the forum & wanted to get together to spend a weekend playing music. The support of the at-Bose guys & the tech talk came along after the initial conversation began. We're grateful that Bose has whole-heartedly supported every conference, but these conferences are first & foremost a chance to share each other's music & company - at least that's how I see them. I'm lucky enough to call some of the at-Bose guys "friends" because of these conferences, & they have shared a wealth of technical knowledge with us, but you'll find that most of them would rather play music than talk shop any day. That's what it's all about.
