Articles I've Written



In the late 90s, I wrote a monthly studio-techniques column for Bass Player magazine, and about a dozen articles articles for Recording Magazine.

As a user of the Panasonic/Ramsa DA7 digital mixing console, I've collected a lot of my discoveries and thoughts about that device on a set of essays pages.
