#ShowUsYourGear

Share a picture or video of your music gear
and an anonymous donor will now give $10 to ccMixter.


We love the focus on audio and sound at ccMixter — especially in a time where appearance and glitz have nearly stolen the soul from music. That being said, we’ve loved getting to know some of you a bit more through your recent Music Connects Us tracks — hearing your voices and where you are from has made us all, well, more connected.

What if we share visualizations of our creative process, while still focusing on the music? Well, that’s what we’re hoping to do with the #ShowUsYourGear project. And, ccMixter will get support it needs in the process through our creative sharing!

How to participate?

1. Upload a picture, screenshot or video of your gear to your social platform of choice (instruments, mixing gear, headphones, speakers, VSTs) .

2. Tag it #ccMixter AND #ShowUsYourGear

3. Tag two other people whose gear you’d like to see (one person on ccM, one outside to spread the word).

4. Include the URL for our fundraiser: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/ccmixter-open-music-for-the-world/

ccMixter’s Sharing Platforms:
- Facebook
- Twitter
- YouTube
- Vimeo
- GooglePlus
- Instagram
- Pinterest
- Your Own Website or Blog ( paste a link in this forum)

This webpage has embedded widgets to capture everyone’s uploads in one place. http://ccmixter.org/show-us-your-gear

Thank you for contributing your creativity to ccMixter. We can’t wait to see what’s behind your recording curtain!

Synchronicity or what? - we made this “video” for and old 90s track of ours yesterday just before this topic appeared here.

It shows some slides of us in the studio yesterday -and a rather silly one too :)

We’ll of course do a proper on in the next few days.

That’s a lot of gear.I use to have a room full like that, donated it all and then went basically virtual.

You might like this one:

This shows a rack full of (my wife’s) midi synths recording SackJo22s song, with commentary.

I love MIDI modules, being a MIDI-programmer by trade. I’m a huge fan of the Wurlitzer Theatre Organs, and found that a rack of MIDI kit is probably the closest to a massive theatre organ that you’re gonna get, sort of an electronic version.

I’d like to play a real Wurli!!

If you haven’t cut back by now there’s no hope. You realize this right Paul :) It’s the bane of every musician.

I LOVE seeing pics and vids of everyone’s music tools! This will be a blast. SO COOL how an anonymous donor offered to contribute to ccM in this way.

*Warning* My pics will likely include my enthusiastic studio cat. She always ends up sitting near or on my gear!

Just a thumbnail shot of one corner of the ENKaudio studio. To the left, our Cwejman s1 m2 synth; to the right, a legacy Tektronix 7904 analog scope.

More (and older) on FaceBook.

4 of you shared great pics of your gear today. That’s 4 bucks for team ccM. Thanks ya’ll.

If all 5,000 artists here each shared just one picture, that would be $5,000 given to ccMixter.

Strength in numbers my friends.

I am trying to post pictures to Facebook (I’m not on other platforms except Twitter and I haven’t used it in so long I forget how). I have tried to tag one picture (think I did it in all lower case)… Can someone get in touch and tell me what I need to do (because I’m confused)?

essesq, you can open an account at Dropbox.com. It places a folder on your desktop and all you have to do is move the picture in there and share it. When you do, it places a link to your clipboard that you can use in the forum. It’s pretty easy and free. Good Luck! =)

I love seeing everyone’s gear.

I just thought I would share a campaign success story. One of my friends who is really just a casual friend and not a particularly close friend, and he is not a member of ccM, just uploaded a photo of his gear on facebook (gorgeous double bass.. . oh my!) and tagged it for the fundraiser. I did not tag him in any of my “show your gear posts” But he jumped in anyway. It makes me happy that we have his support and to see how our efforts are expanding.

not sure what it is exactly, but looking at these pictures causes me to smile — outside, but moreso, within. your workspace is beautiful with the plants, lamp and pictures on the wall as inspiration. admittedly, i love the dusty closet as much as the tidy desk.

Now this week only: each picture that is posted and tagged #ccMixter and #ShowUsYourGear gives $10 to our fundraiser.

Thank you all for sharing many cool pics of your gear already. If you could add a few more, and encourage some of your friends, this is a simple way to help ccMixter grow strong and free! Thank you.

Awesome! I’m hoping we have added them all to our complete list that keeps on growing. $406 so far. Very cool.
