Editor's Notes

February 06, 2019:

It seems the big decision consumers have in this category is between models with full physical controls and those who cede their knobs and faders to tablets and PCs. Allen & Heath have one selection of each type, but their fully physical model takes priority for its reliability even if the user forgets to charge their iPad.

Daniel’s recent obsessions include horology (making him a pro when it comes to all things timekeeping) and Uranium mining and enrichment (which hasn’t proven useful just yet).
