Yes, I'm planning to go. The easiest would likely be to centralize the hardware
in Paris, pack it in a car and drive to Hamburg. If I'm alone to drive I'll
make a stop on the way, if there's more than one of us we can probably share
the wheel and do it in one go.

I think we have enough microphones that we can use as ambients in our kit.

It would be nice if we could get at least some of the microphones we're
intending to buy beforehand, even if they're not fully encased in their final
form: the current hardware works most of the time but it's really falling
apart, e.g. one of the headsets was a bit twitchy after two days of use at the
MiniDebConf in Cambridge. Of course this means finalizing the hardware choice
before then which might or might not be possible.

We should also get the mixer that's at Andy's place so we can use it.
