Mike Brown RIP

Mike Brown of Livewire Electronics passed away yesterday. I never met him, but the person I used to build modules for got his start building modules for Mike, and from the stories I was told, he was the nicest, most generous guy on the planet. Plus he designed the AFG and reissued the Synthasystem filter-- both gold medal moves. His passing is a true loss to the community.

In this "classic" 2008 NAMM clip, not only do we get Mike giving a great demo in a quiet space (show me another NAMM clip where no one yells or wears a mic), but there's a prototype AFG, Chaos Computer* and Audio Compositor** in his system!

Rest in peace.
