Well, the Jam is over and this is what happened: Lots of people showed up, we jammed for hours and hours, a new polyphonic synthesizer was built, an old home made polyphonic synth was discovered and everybody was nice and friendly, we had a great time!
Our initial plan was simply to invite everyone we knew for a weekend of jamming, synthtalking and playing.. I think we succeded quite well with that.
On Friday we were joined first by Kotten, who brought his cool, tiny MIDI-controller, which he had written a MAX-patch for to use it as a KLEE-sequencer (very cool). He also had a Kinect with him that we interfaced with MAX/Msp to play some body-controlled acid!
Later more people showed up, and the jam was in full swing. Later still some dudes showed up with an 808, two 303′s and a SH101. Needless to say, more acid was blasted through the PA :)
When the hours got late we decided to call it a night and went home to Salkin for a good nights sleep.
The next day, we went back to STPLN. Davey kept up the tireless work on the Syltjam Synth (separate blog post coming). More people showed up. Too much happened to accurately recap everything in detail.
Late at night things got intense when some people got going with a spontanious, booming acid-jam! Some of the gear used was Octatracker, Machinedrum, XoXbox, Shruti-1, MFOS Minisynth, a suitcase of delays and… a telephone handset!

All in all it was a very nice event, and we hope to do it many times again!
A big thanks to everyone who showed up!! You were awesome, each and everyone of you!
