My first hardware review here on Sonicstate was of the Machinedrum, I think he gave us the web exclusive, and he was extremely helpful and good fun too. Always shy of the camera, we could never persuade him into talking to us at the shows, even though he was a great communicator and - if I may be so bold, a handsome devil! My last communication with him (May 2007) was to let him know of a video featuring the Monomachine - he said " Really cool indeed! :)".
Our condolences go to his family, friends and work colleagues.
