Here is a detailed list of all (or most) of the tools I use for web development and audio engineering. Information on this page may update frequently.

Editor + Terminal

  • Sublime Text is my text editor of choice for code. I use the Material theme with Emmit for HTML & CSS workflow, PHP Companion for helpful tools like “Goto Definition”, and SFTP for file transfer.
  • I use Termius for my terminal and SSH client. It works on Mac, Windows and mobile.
  • My build process differs project to project, but it usually involves Grunt, Gulp or WebPack for CSS & JS linting/compiling/concatenating.

Desktop Apps

  • Chrome is my main browser for development (because dev tools). Firefox is my browser of choice for most personal use.
  • FileZilla: The free FTP solution for both client and server.
  • MAMP: A local server environment for Mac or Windows.
  • Slack: All your communication together in one place. It’s real-time messaging, archiving and search for modern teams.
  • Simplenote is my go-to app for all digital note taking. It’s straightforward and cross platform.
  • Todoist is where I store all my brain dump data.

Recording

  • Reaper is my DAW of choice. It has a bit of a learning curve but I love it.
  • I use the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 interface for all studio recording.
  • The Mackie CR4s are my mixing/reference monitors.
  • I use a set of Tascam TH-200X studio headphones for tracking/mixing.
  • Mics:
    • The MXL 990 condenser mic is my main mic for vocals, guitar, strings, percussion, etc.
    • I use a pair of CAD CM217 condenser mics for stereo recording.
    • Shure 57 dynamic mic for all the loud stuff and experimenting.
  • I occasionally use my ART MP Tube Preamp for vocals.
  • The Tascam DR-05 lives in my commuter bag for field recording.
