“Nowadays, I believe that producers and arrangers need to be familiar with the realm of engineering in order to do our part right. As one of the primitive steps into doing so, I’ve always been very careful about my choices of the clock, especially because it’s applicable to all stages of music production. To me, the Micro Clock MkIII is a tool that allows my imagination to take the lead. ”
