Where have you been?!
Keep them coming!!
This is a great podcast for anyone who makes music with synths! There is a good balance of relatable biographical information and clearly explained easily applicable techniques. It's also concise which I really appreciate. Please keep them coming!!!
If you want to hear a couple boring idiots jerking off with a Volca Keys, this is for you. Truly awful. No sense of actually entertaining.
