Imagine this if you will:

You’ve got a daughter. She’s very sick, and in the town where you live, there are lots of very prestigious doctors who claim to know EVERYTHING about your child’s illness, and who’d love to demand exorbitant prices to “heal” her. Only problem is- none of them has the slightest idea what’s wrong, and the kid just gets sicker and sicker. So in desperation, you start contacting people all over the world, and finally you find someone far far away who knows exactly what’s going on, and is able to point you in the right direction- over the phone. A day or two later, you’ve got your finger on it, and your child is back to her old self.

Now: I’d never say that electronic equipment is anyone’s child, but I recently had an encounter with a certain tech-engineer guy. Please don’t go bothering him like I did, but if you should find yourself in or near L.A. with a problem concerning DAWs or pro audio gear, and you’re tearing your hair out, and you REALLY need someone who knows what the f**k he’s doing, then please remember:

Mitch Berger at rocks, absolutely.

R.I.P. George McGovern, 1922-2012

Perhaps the last U.S. presidential candidate to have possessed a single shred of decency- I really can’t think of another- has passed away. I am proud to say that I worked for him in 1972, and I would do it again today, if only a man like him could come anywhere near presidential candidacy nowadays.


Hello dear friends and treasured customers,

As of about a week ago, FSS has been sold. The space has been taken over by Simon Berckelman, who will be continuing on in a similar vein to mine; I will take a couple of months to travel and sort things out. The phone number at the studio remains 030 4373 5144, but you will no longer reach me there.

In case you’re wondering, yes, this is a big change for me, but I am absolutely delighted to be starting out on a new path. I remain ever grateful for everyone’s support, and look forward to continued collaboration and much, much more.

Sorry, I haven’t gotten around to redesigning this web site. That’s something that I look forward to doing, but it will have to wait for now.

THANK YOU EVERYONE, and watch this space for further developments!

best wishes,
