    Soooo happy that Powerglove is able to make it back again!

    We'll be spending plenty of time in there for sure. And we'll try to film as much as we can!

    LOVE poverglove, they had the best mosh pit last year also it was pretty cool to have some of the proto men in the same room. i loved that you guys have ear plugs provided it was very thoughtfull and awesome.

    since you guys are bringing instruments is there any chance you will bring some chiptune / dj stuff for us to mess around with, if not i may have some non modded consoles to lend out but none of the software

    Unfortunately, I don't think we can provide any of that kind of equipment, but if you talk to the chiptune performers, they may let you mess around with theirs.

    Thank you once again, Magfest!

    I'm pretty new to the chiptune scene, but I mess with famitracker a bit. I wouldn't love to lug my giant laptop around though, if anyone has a small netbook we could get some cool things going. I'm all about having a makeshift how-to/mini-jam if there is any downtime.

    hey if you guys need a laptop donated i have 2 im not using, 1 need drivers nad a copy of window and is a 17inch wide screen and some what current and then i have an old beat to hell tablet opc that needs a power cord

    so if you guys can use it and just load it with w/e you want and just have people plug their memory cards / hard drives in it , that should work great. also the tablet beat as it is but works great so i dont care if on the last day its just wrecked

    Honestly, that sounds like a pretty rad idea. Famitracker shouldn't take much to run. I don't think I'd be the best teacher myself, but there might be someone to step up to the job. Also, this would allow anyone that uses Famitracker or a similar tracker to just bring a flash drive with their files on it as opposed to whatever they were going to bring, providing the right software was installed.

    yeah the 17inch hp needs some drivers for every thing on it and that i would like back after the weekend but the tablet that just needs a power cord, it uses the same cord that my own laptop used let me get the stats for it, but i dont care if i get it back. i literally found it the trash at work and its beat to hell but the screen works great, nothing doesn't work on it so should be great to be publicly used and even smashed if any one wants

    You are kinda in the area near Boston, right? I'm pretty tight on cash right now but I would gladly donate my time. What are the specs on that tablet pc?

    YES. This was my favorite room last year and I will be hanging out as often as I can this time around too.

    During the open jams, is jamspace chip/VG music only or are more traditional acts welcome too?

  • GrimRupertGrimRupert regular Registered User regular
    Is there a specific hashtag or twitter we should follow if no official schedule is established? I'd love to see Arm Cannon or Power Glove live again.

    I'm a website!

    All music is welcome, but be aware that open jam time is usually geared towards random individuals playing with each other, so it might take a little scheduling to get a full band to play together on stage.

    Check out @MAGFest for all the latest jamspace updates, as well as updates on MAGFest itself, which happens every January in the DC area.

  • NickTheNewbieNickTheNewbie regular Registered User regular
    Updated OP to include chip acts. We'll be jam packed on the schedule this year, so unfortunately open jam time will only be in the evenings (8-close) and sunday.

  • NickTheNewbieNickTheNewbie regular Registered User regular
    First day went pretty great aside from open jam falling apart at the end (sorry about that). See you guys tomorrow.

  • NickTheNewbieNickTheNewbie regular Registered User regular
    MAGFest would like to express its heartfelt thanks to PAX and everyone else who made the Jamspace awesome this year. All of our scheduled acts rocked the house, and you all were a great crowd to have watching them. Our apologies for not having as much open jam time as we did in years past, but the open jam time we did have turned out great. Watch out for us again at PAX Prime, and, of course, at the next MAGFest, January 3-6, 2013, right outside Washington D.C.
