  1. You know you watch Pete Johns too often when you go outside and there’s a live huntsman spider sitting on the wall just outside the door

    true story

  2. Hi Pete! I have a question (off topic) : I am currently using an iPhone 6s 64GB. I’m planning to replace within the next coming months. My question is: what can you recommend for a more recent iPhone? The only preference what’s most important is that it has at least double the amount of storage from what I use now. Thanks 🙏 in advance my friend!

  3. Hello, I record my vocals in ios and then bring the stems onto the Windows PC for further mixing and Mastering. Now I have no need to further record, do I Need to use a audio interface or can I use a Headphone D/A or a mixer? I really have been having problems with ASIO4all with irig Keys I/O…which is great for IOS just buggy with this ASIO4All just for simple mixing and Mastering on PC..Thanks again Pete

  4. Ah! I finally get what “class compliant” means now. I was always like “which class?” when I heard it lol

    Wacom Tablets for example are NOT class compliant, as it needs special drivers installed to work on a Mac.
