A Quick History of ACT Lighting with Bob Gordon

Have you all seen this? ACT Lighting posted this great quick video on the history of ACT Lighting with the pres, Bob Gordon.  If you’ve ever met Bob, you’d know that he’s a pretty cool dude!

Check out this quick video history of ACT Lighting:

Also, you should subscribe to ACT Lighting’s Youtube channel, because there are tons of videos on GrandMA stuff! That is quickly becoming one of my favorite consoles, especially after hearing Cat West and Joe Cabrera talk so highly of it. Seeing Jeff Waful rock that thing several times also doesn’t hurt! If you’ve never even looked at their channel, you are missing out – the Console Cocktails series is on there too!

There is also an offline editor, free, for the ORB.
