  1. I don’t generally leave comments, but I just have to tell you that maybe the most valuable piece of knowledge I have gotten from your posts and your book is how great Knurlies are! I move stuff around in my racks a lot more often than is probably necessary. But Knurlies make it a tool-less exercise. I now have 200 of the little guys and I’ve replaced the screws on my M32, Subharmonicon and DFAM cases so I can move them in and out of my Eurorack.

    So thanks!

  2. I have a huge problem. I’m getting back into the music business, and lots of things have changed and I’m a little bit confused. I have set my eyes on the fantastic Native Instruments KK S88 and the Maschine+ and Logic Pro. But I’m very much a keyboard player and I’m also fascinated by the Fantom, I think it’s a great workstation and I already have the JupiterX. My headache is if I can have both the Fantom and the KK S88/Maschine and run them both into the Logic or wether it is too much? Can anyone help?
