Well I studied Audio Engineering at uni, but most of the valuable experience came from working in a recording studio (where I was a tech), so it taught me a lot about what people want of gear, and how they like to work. Then I just applied for this, and got it!

It can be quite cool, I get to fly round the world visiting recording studios and broadcasters, but it can get tiring when you fly somewhere for just 1 day! I think the main thing is that you've just got to be the right kinda person-- you can't buckle under pressure, and you've got to be able to be friendly (that's all you guys out of the equation, sorry! ho-ho) and articulate to a lot of people, especially when you're working with a translator.

But it is quite neat

Soulinsane: for a while I was working freelance building Fairchild 670 limiters... 11 transformers and 20 tubes.... proper beasts, you'd have loved them, I think! (I might speak to you about Output transformers at some point, got a project on the go)

It's good to see some of the old faces still here
