My tech stack and additional gadgets
Switched from a 13" MacBook Pro 2017 which was clearly the worst machine I've ever bought from Apple. The M1 Air is absolutely the opposite: fast, lightweight and perfect for an everyday home computer.
It's one of the last dinosaurs, but good enough for coding and it doesn't smoke when I'm using Docker or Chrome.
The bigger the best with less distractions, I don't believe in multi-monitor setups or multitasking.
I jumped on the mechanic keyboard train after using Apple keyboards for a decade. It has shiny RGB lights which looks cool, but I barely turn them on and sadly the batteries aren't the best in the category.
I only looked away once from the Magic Mouse to try an MX Master, and absolutely loved it! It's more ergonomic and I just love the endless scrolling wheel.
Great for HD conferences, but less ideal for YouTube content creation.
The first AirPods which fits in my ear. Very comfy, sounds nice and it's charging fast. I also have a Sony WH‑1000XM3, just in case I need some punchy bass.
I'm a loyal iPhone user since the 3GS.
On my desk
I'm not an avid user of standing desks, but it's good to have an option to switch postures. I have three heights set: sitting, standing, and "making music" which is somewhere in the middle. I skipped the top, because that's overpriced.
It's originally a dining table top from IKEA, but I drilled it to the Autonomous frame. I love desks with more depth, and having a decent space for all of my stuff.
People had been talking about it in the office, and I finally gave it a go after a few months. Immediately dropped my desk lamp and saved more space. It's hard to find the best position on the top of the monitor when you also have a webcam, but the remote control is very cool.
They're brilliant active monitor speakers with good enough bass for a small room. After two years I bought a standing desk clamp for both, now they're using less space on my desk and positioned to the same height where my ears are.
A bit far from Fast Tracker 2 which I grown up in my childhood. I've tried Logic and Fruity Loops, but nothing beats the layout and the possibilities with Live.
Great for writing songs with loops, doing live acts and DJing. And it's also a perfect match for Ableton Live.
Awesome little tool for producing music and playing with VSTis. Sometimes I miss more keys, but the fact it fits in your backpack is unbeatable.
It is my first and now legacy MIDI keyboard. I almost sold it, but the knobs and triggers do feel very real.
It's a good microphone, but not for podcasting as it records every tiny details in the background.
Wireless isn't good enough for mixing when you need instant feedback. However be careful with the volume: it's really crisp and very loud! The only downside is that I have to replace the ear pads every two or three years.
