In 1995 I was persuaded to leave Argonaut and join Manic Media. The Manic team were working on the follow up to the successful and addictive Super Karts, called Manic Karts.
One of the first tasks was to build a Recording Studio.
Therefore, as well as developing the sound software required, I project managed the conversion of a barn into a16-track digital, 16-track analogue project recording studio complete with acoustically designed and treated control room, live room, vocal booth, chill out area, and Kit (a DDA QMR mixing desc and lots of outboard/MIDI gear.)
And then we went on to make some music, with a variety of people including the much missed Jo Bruce (founder of Afrocelts) and Jo Strummer.
