Nathan Santino

What was the first instrument that you learned to play?
A RD-100 piano.

What’s your favourite synthesize in the shop?
The Roland Jupiter-80.

Do you have any hobbies outside of work?
I’m an audio engineer and a pianist. Making music is my passion, and help people create their own music both in and out of work! Whether it’s showing customers how to use the latest software or helping them find the kit they need to produce the sounds they want, I am always more than happy to help a fellow producer.

For people making music at home, what would you say their essential studio gear should contain?
A good pair of active monitors is a must. Adam Audio monitors are great, I use them myself. A decent midi controller is necessary too - the Akai Advanced midis are popular. And finally, everyone needs an audio interface. I usually go for one from Apollo, Apogee or Focusrite.
