Sighting: Live Sound International Magazine

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

QLab appears in the October 2007 issue of Live Sound International magazine: A trip to mid-town Manhattan without taking in a Broadway show would be like skipping Restaurant Row or Ray’s Pizza. With AES’ 123rd Convention in the Big Apple, we visited four top shows to see what equipment is used when the stakes are [...]

Icon Pride

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

It seems that Bobby Anderson really hit one out of the park when he designed the new icon for QLab. I’ve stumbled across several posts on the world wide interweb about his work. The links pretty much sum it up in and of themselves: http://brisbanecreative.com.au/links/the-most-beautiful-os-x-app-icon-ive-ever-seen/ http://scottkoon.org/2007/08/15/im-in-awe-of-icon-designers/ Lucky me, I got his last icon before he [...]

Sighting: Shanghai

Tuesday, August 14th, 2007

QLab at Oracle Open World, Shanghai. Philip Barrett recently sent in this photo, writing to say: Much excitement about QLab from my Beijing & Singapore crew, especially as they are mostly MacBook users. This was then followed by a kind message from Jimmy Cheong, who wrote to say: Hi, I’m Jimmy Cheong, I work as [...]

Our Users Rock

Friday, August 3rd, 2007

In case it wasn’t already obvious, our users are awesome. I got an email from Dave Mickey last night (who you may remember has already appeared on the QBlog twice before), who wrote to say he has written a proof-of-concept iPhone app for controlling QLab: http://www.theaterdog.com/QLabRemote/ That might just beeeee….thecoolestthingever. Dave, if you were trying [...]

New stuff on the way…

Thursday, August 2nd, 2007

It’s been quiet ’round here this summer, but that’s only because we’ve been working too hard to write much on this here blog thing. A new release of QLab will be forthcoming soon, which will be focused on fixing as many bugs as possible. We’ll also have some announcements about some exciting new QLab sightings, [...]

So. What next?

Tuesday, September 26th, 2006

The Figure 53 newswire has been pretty quiet since releasing QLab 1.0. But, lest you should think the factory has been shut down and the forges cooled, I’m here to relay the message that work has quietly continued. (These virtual factories don’t have the benefit of smokestacks to broadcast their mysterious activity from afar, so [...]
