His recent change comes with the implementation of Focusrite RedNet audio interfaces. “Yeah, the DASH format, it’s been over for a while, period,” Lord-Alge acknowledges. “I mean,… View this story

The changes in the technology and the industry the past 15 years or so have been astounding, and… View this story
