What with the whole SIP COVID situation, I decided I wanted to be able to noodle on some music ideas and wanted to get my home studio functioning again. Easier said than done.

Turns out my audio interface doesn’t really work anymore, given the company behind it stopped releasing drivers a few years ago (I’m pretty sure they are essentially out of business at this point). So I unexpectedly entered the market for a new audio interface. My current leading candidate is the MOTU M4 but that seems to be sold out everywhere (probably due in no small part to COVID… sigh)

I’m also looking into a new MIDI controller since my old JV-35 has some broken keys. I was eying the Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol s61. I would love to get the full 88 weighted key version, but I’m not sure I can justify the cost.

Sidenote: I’m using this post to debug my netlify cms configuration
