It's only a matter of time before Rack 5 gets combined with Rack 6 and maybe one day evolves into some kind of live effects rack, with a rackmounted mixer on top for stage usage...

Recording

After years without a viable multitrack (apart from my old 4-track) I finally began recording audio direct to computer in 2009. The following year I embarked on a vast climb up a massive mountain of DAT tapes, many of which are now happily gathered together on computer, and some are being released online as time allows.
