Greetings to all of our friends in the PotluckCon community.

As we all know, these are challenging times for recording professionals as the music business models we work within are changing. The conference has worked diligently over the years to help our community learn how to evolve and continue to succeed in that environment.

Unfortunately, I am exhausted from months of chronic indigestion brought on by post cancer radiation damage to salivary glands and I need to take care of my health. For this reason, I am not able to deliver the rewarding experience you have come to expect with our conference and I respectfully ask for your understanding in our need to cancel PotLuckCon 2015.

Thank you to everyone for your love and support these past three years and we hope to reemerge in the future healthier and stronger.

Independence Day

4th of July is one of our favorite holidays. We are lucky to live in a country where we have free access to make records and own recording studios. The free access to express oneself musically is a freedom many don’t contemplate yet we’d all greatly miss if it was suddenly gone. The PotLuck Audio Conference represents a cross section of diverse creative talented people who have chosen to get together and celebrate their independence and freedom during one awe inspiring weekend. From cutting vinyl to hi res audio delivery, PotLuckCon strives to provide a real time forum where you can freely express your audio philosophies and passions while enjoying a relaxing resort and an ice cold beverage.

In honor of the 4th, we are extending our Hotel room cut off to the 11th of July. We are also extending our standard registration rate of $75.0 till July 15th.  Our casita Suites are set, panelists are dialed in, and the final preparations are underway. We invite you to please explore our workshops and activities and check out our panelists and exhibitors. We guarantee this year is going to be history making. We hope to see you there!

Summer is Here!

Today is officially the start of summer! To celebrate, we have extended the current $75.00 registration price till June 30th. The conference gets stronger every day and the panels and workshops are ready to go. Final panelist selections are completed and the calls for bios have begun. The host hotel is filling up and now is the time to register as you don’t want to miss this year. Our range of topics and hands-on workshops offer something for everyone. If you have not done so yet, we encourage you to take a look at our schedule and topics. PotLuckCon is the only place where your questions and concerns are shared by all as we head into the vast unknowns of the music business. From Meta Data to digital connectivity to analog signal processing, the PotLuck Audio Conference will help you be prepared for the next phase of all things related to recording. Together we are as stronger as “Everyone brings something t0 the table”!

PotLuckCon 2014 Workshop Schedules

Our Workshop Schedules are constantly evolving, but the basic schedules for Friday and Saturday are available for your consumption.

As we add panelists, the information for the workshops will grow and include bios for the participants. Please check back often for new info.

We look forward to seeing all of you at PotLuck Audio Conference 2014!
