Ok so I suggest only to bring Loudspeaker Monitors and Headphones, and 
at most class compliant usb audio adapters (no firewire). Actually  
builtin soundcards should suffice for demonstration purpose.

I have some thoughts on how to conduct the workshop:
-The workshop should take at maximum 1h 30mins.
-To kick off the workshop I will give a 15-20 min talk on my experiences 
to get impressions from the professionals among you (I consider myself 
an intermediate noob).

-The direction I want to go is aimed at the early stages in the mixing 
process: gating tracks and removing frequencies (initial EQing) to first 
clean the mix.
These are indispensable steps for any genre of music. Compressing should 
also be adressed

-Later steps of mixing such as accentuating instruments/voices by EQing, 
panning the stereo, adding reverb/other fx
should be left out/put at the end of the workshop as they are mostly 
subjective and music/genre dependent

-Then those who wish to get tips on their mixes shall get time slots of 
10mins on the speakers. This way 6-7 people can get tips on their mixes 
(only initial mix), and show their stuff.
-At the same time others can use headphones to directly apply the tips 
of the pro engineers

Discussions about recording and mastering should also be put at the end
What do you think?
