Editor's Notes

January 30, 2019:

There are plenty of great entries on the market for building out both home and professional studios, and names like Mackie, Yamaha, and Behringer certainly carry their weight. Allen and Heath also makes an appearance here, with a model that seems intent on finally taking the company into the 21st century.

After returning to the contiguous states, he took up a position as an editor and photographer of the prestigious geek culture magazine “Unwinnable” before turning his attention to the field of health and wellness. In recent years, he has worked extensively in film and music production, making him something of a know-it-all when it comes to camera equipment, musical instruments, recording devices, and other audio-visual hardware. 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).
