Hi, Patrick, I lived  four years down under and two in Sydney before 
living for Melbourne, I think it would be nice that your do some 
recording of your gig and put them on line with an explanation how you 
did it. Wish you good luke for your live performance.
I can see your using Xjadeo and Lives, could you tell us what for? Are 
you doing Dj video while mixing music?

Best regards from Paris
