Robin Danar

Musician, recording and mixing engineer, and producer


"The Audiophile Desktop Bundle is a powerful package. As a producer who is also a touring FOH engineer, the ability to do a simple setup to my laptop and actually feel like I'm in a real studio while in my hotel room is something I've never experienced before... The depth, clarity and imaging were vast and the speakers were downright fat sounding as well. But they became invisible and I was actually brought into the music."
