Hardware, software, acoustic and electronic instruments, analog and digital recording and signal processing - you name it, chances are excellent that a bunch of us are interested in knowing more about it; and, if the stars align correctly (and the price is right), maybe even adding said gear to our own collections. Discovering, researching, and sharing past and present experiences with gear has always been one of the primary things that brings people to MPN...and keeps them here.

To that end, MPN is awfully lucky to have some of the most well respected and heavily experienced gear geeks in our industry as members, several of whom are keen to share their fondness for torturing musical instruments and audio tools with us. A large part of their motivation is that as the site is basically employee-owned, these folks are free to say whatever they want. smile

It's important to understand that - unlike conventional gear reviews - these community-based explorations aren't just someone pontificating, but are specifically set up in a forum format so that community members can ask questions, add comments, offer suggestions, and even have a platform for opposing viewpoints -- whatever is on your mind that relates to the gear we're checking out. What's more, we invite personnel from the company making the gear to participate, and contribute their expertise (all we ask is that you identify your company affiliation). Our goal is to open a dialog among users, MPN Experts, and manufacturers that will benefit us all.

As with most things here at MPN, the GearLab forum will be a work in progress - a living, breathing entity that grows and changes with the interests and participation of the community. The level of information and shared experiences with gear collected at MPN over two decades is already formidable - these should continue to add to that.

Thanks in advance for your input and participation! wave

By way of a little introduction about what MPN GearLab threads are, they’re ongoing community-based explorations in the form of threads on this forum. Only moderators can start them (for now, anyway), and they’re more strictly supervised than a “regular” post on, say, the Keyboard Corner. Manufacturers and community members alike are invited to participate and ask questions, but the thread originator (me in this case) has their hands on the product and will be doing the bulk of the writing, speaking straight from experience. That said, the back-and-forth (and to a lesser extent, stream of consciousness) feel of the GearLab lets the community steer each thread towards what’s important to know about.
