Need a gift for a gifted musician?
I started as a bass player in the middle 70's, in what was then called a heavy metal band. I later studied audio engineering, and worked as an audio engineer in a recording studio. I happened to get into the field just as things were going from anologue to digital, and the developement of midi. I was lucky enough to have saw both sides of recording techniques. It was during these years that I learned to program and sequence musical pieces.
