I love this series of simple video interviews with Rupert Neve from Rupert Neve Designs. Here he discusses creating his first transistor-based mixer.
Support the Future of Music Coalition! [donate!] The FMC is "a small, Washington, D.C.-based non-profit that fights to get musicians a seat at the table in debates about the future of music. FMC's HINT (Health Insurance Navigation Tool) program, which provides free consultations for musicians about their health insurance options, continues to have a positive impact on the lives of musicians. We do a lot with a little, so your dollars will have real impact - from providing health insurance information to fighting for equitable compensation for artists and analyzing policies that impact musicians' ability to reach audiences. FMC is committed to supporting musicians' right to earn a living making their art. In order to keep making a positive impact, we need your help. Your tax deductible contribution to our efforts will ensure that musicians' voices continue to be heard in the halls of power and beyond. Every dollar helps. And, if you want, we will list you on our website as a supporter of FMC." These are good people who are doing the right thing - not some self-serving assholes playing the political game for their own profit and mobility. Learn more here.
