Updates from Springtime Argentina

It’s springtime here in Buenos Aires!

I’ve been doing everything with my Beyerdynamic DT770 headphones so far, but for mixing I need speakers. If you’ve done some music recordings on your own, you probably know all the bad things that will happen to your mix, when you only mix with headphones.
