“I’m a total analog gear junkie… always have been. Plugins are cool, but I prefer tubes and wires. Plus, software didn’t really exist when I first started. So I’ve amassed a collection of useful blinking boxes that help me with obtaining fat, wide, and engaging mixes. Though gear is only as good as the engineer operating it, having great gear makes a good engineer even better.  Here are some of the things that make me better.  That and coffee.  Coffee definitely makes me better.” – Thai Long Ly
