In this episode, Andrew and Pete discuss hardware and software for making music. We’ll cover the basics of how electronic music is created and recorded in modern home and pro studios, and then dive in on the stuff we can all use.

There’s also an R16 that’s $100 cheaper, and an R8 which is $200 cheaper (the R8 also looks like it’s a good bit smaller, so it might be a nice one to use for “found” sounds:

    Hi guys, I really enjoyed your podcast. After listening to Pete talk about his rack mounted synthizizer, I was wonder if you have heard of the IPad app called Cube Synth. http://mobile.virsyn.com. I would really like to hear what you think about this and if you think Iit is similar in ways to your analogue system you demonstrated with that deep WOOWHAA sound. Pete, you can contact me directly and give me any thoughts you have abou this., Regards Gary
