The Definition of Inventory

Written by The Lennon Bus

 

According to Merriam-Webster the definition of Inventory is:

1. an itemized list of current assets: as (1) : a catalog of the property of an individual or estate (2) : a list of goods on hand

The beginning of every Lennon Bus tour begins with this itemizing of assets, catalogs of property, and lists of goods. It is important we have all of our eggs in a basket and ducks in a row before we go roaring across the country in a fury of media production. This year we have added quite a few extra assets to our itemized lists I’d like to point out.


The Mbox Pro

The Lennon Bus has been using Pro Tools systems to produce music with students and artist for quite some time now. We are certainly proud of the amazing Pro Tools HD systems we have within in the bus but now you can experience the same world-class results in our tents with the Pro Tools Mbox Pro. The Mbox Pro has made a change that you can see, feel, and most importantly hear and all brought to you by the same engineering team responsible for the high-end Pro Tools HD systems we keep rockin’ in the inside of the bus. I’m excited to explore the power of the new Mbox Pro’s and I’m even more excited they will be in our tents available for visitors to experiment with.


MC Color

No it’s not the name of the latest rapper signed to Crayola Records, but it is a tool that’ll help you get your color grading done faster than a kindergarten teacher on her fourth cup of coffee. It integrates with all the major color grading programs and it provides high-resolution trackballs, trackwheels, touch-sensitive encoders, and a ton of hot keys that you can program to your preference. The MC Color is one cool cat we’re excited to have on board.


In previous jobs inventory was not something to look forward to but with the Lennon Bus and sponsors like Avid, Apple, and Gibson, inventory has really become an opportunity to itemize our assets, catalog our property, and make a list of all our goods we’ll get to share with students across the nation.

Be sure to keep an eye on our schedule as we get ready to kick off our 2011 tour at NAMM.
