Essential Apple Podcast 193: Mark Disappears …

Recorded October 4, 2020

This week Nick and Simon are joined by Mark (who has problems with his mixer, so his sound is unfortunately not as good as it should be – I did what I could to even it out – thank you so much Chris’ dynamic compressor – but in parts is he a little weak or clipped) and we walk around in what is and does not happen this week in Apple.

This week’s show art was drawn by Jim ̵
