Who needs mics? Last Wednesday at Starbucks, I saw two college age guys
sharing a table. Each had a laptop in front of him. One had a Les Paul,
the other some other electric guitar. Each instrument was plugged into
some external audio device that was plugged into his laptop. Each had
headphones on. Each was playing and recording, replaying, etc, etc.
After a while, they packed up their guitars and computers and left.
Portable studio. Why should they worry about having large monitors or an
acoustically known room? Their audience won't be listening on that kind
of equipment or that kind of room. They'll probably be listening on
earphones, possibly at the back of a bus with the sound cranked up so
they can hear it over the bus engine ...
