sE Electronics DM3 is a DI Box that’s actually cylindrical and performs brilliantly

The sE Electronics DM3 is a phantom powered DI box with features that put it in the expensive range, but costs only €119 EUR.

With Logic Pro X on my Mac and whole bunch of free and paid plug-in synths and effects, I decided to start experimenting a year or so ago. My first experiments resulted in what we call “ambient music” these days. To my demanding self, music equals what composers like Bach, Beethoven, Mahler, and more recently people like Pärt, are capable of, not some long-stretched sound that gets interwoven by dark bass lines and oscillating high-pitched screams. And yet, although I don’t consider myself to be a musician, last week I actually managed to create something that even I want to listen to more than once.… Read More Of software synthesizers, Logic Pro X and massive reverb
