From the moment I got my iPad earlier this year, one of the first things I said would be awesome to have on it was a Tenori-On app. In fact, I was staggered that it hadn’t already been done, especially as there were other Tenori-On-esque apps available, such as Beatwave. Well, in a massive splurge […]

As regular readers will know (or possibly not), in the last few weeks I have been painfully parting company with a number of pieces of beloved studio equipment. This is most definitely not the norm.

“With great power comes great responsibility” Most recently used in the Spiderman movie, but often quoted elsewhere, this is a very accurate statement. The internet gives many individuals great power, but very few of them wield it responsibly. I’ll cut to the chase and explain why I’m using that quote. A few years back, Alesis, […]
