Equipment and gear

I’ve been fascinated by machines my whole life. In general I don’t find them alienating. The best machines have almost magical qualities. Like the Roland SH-101 monosynth, which on paper looks really basic, but in practice sounds effortlessly fantastic at most settings.

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 that background influences my views.
