Paul Wiggins, managing director of Studio 52 and Empire Records, points out, “When you’ve spent 25 years in the music… View this post

Snag a comfy chair at Starbucks and kill a few hours making music on your laptop. Perfect! Composer - This one is perhaps a little limited, but it’s still fun. A drum machine with synced synthesizer. Tone Matrix - 256 buttons, and one sinewave tone, I find the… View this post
