Absolutely: Less mixing desks, less audio interfaces, less computers, less mic preamps, less keyboards, less modular synths, less guitars... less magazines.

Let us cast aside the things of this world. It'll be great.

Well, I’ve sort of done it, the piano is the only thing getting any use these days, and you don't even have to plug it in. My Tascam DR100 battery is fully charged, and later on, so will my glass be!

I believe that it's something like 20% of audio visual companies might go under due to this...... This virus has hit that industry hard, like many others out there we all hang on in there !
