Live Sound EngineeringIt was the Grateful Dead who introduced the positioning of the live sound engineering mixing desk in the audience in around 1966. Beforehand the desk was meant to be out of sight. No one had considered that the engineer needed to hear the music from the front of the stage in order to get a good balance.
Before the Beatles most Audio Engineers used to wear white lab coats & artists were not allowed to be present during the mastering of their records. This is one of the reasons the Beatles set up their Apple record company, so that they could have more control over their work.

One of the 1st pieces of music production software was a Commodore 64 program called Pro16 in around 1987. In those days the 5.25" floppy disc was the latest thing in data storage. This later became developed in 1989 into the program that we now know as Cubase.

Damon Albarn from Blur & The Gorrilaz used to be a neighbour of TRW. He had many Korg synthesisers that were part of the same range as our MS20. There was a plan to link them up together to create a monster synth set up. Unfortunatlely he moved before we had a chance to try it.
