Online presentation with MSBA and CSJA

On Sunday, August 26, and Monday, August 27, the Mid-States Band Association and CSJA broadcast an online presentation for sponsors of MSBA shows, particularly for those sponsors who have not hosted a Mid-States show before. Presenters included Dick Turner, Executive Director of MSBA, Greg Mills, President of MSBA and Executive Director of CSJA, and Jeff Waggoner, Assistant Director of CSJA.

What is that cable he was talking about during the presentation?

Our older Sony recorders – the ones many of our members have been using for years – require a somewhat uncommon cable to connect to a computer. It is called a mini USB cable and can be found on Amazon.com at this link. Most of our members should still have one (the one that came with the recorder) but it’s safer to have one. It costs about $5.

Sony created Windows software to help manage these recorders. However, most recorders should show up on today’s laptops just like USB thumb drives. You may download the Sony software here.
