I’ve been fascinated by machines my whole life. The idea of machines as alienating has never rung true for me. I find that the best machines have a kind of beauty in them, and sometimes even magical, poetic qualities.
Audio recorders, microphones, headphones, computers, software, mixers, synthesisers, samplers, cameras… People are often looking for advice about equipment, so in these pages I will review various bits of equipment I have owned and used over the years.
Please bear in mind that I am an academic researcher and DIY electronic musician, not a professional audio engineer/producer, so this influences my views.
