Here are the tools and tech that I use on a daily basis, 2021 Edition!
Editor + Terminal
I used to work exclusively on a mac, but I recently built a rather capable PC so I decided to try to make Windows work (mainly to justify its cost 😂). Here's the spec list:
My Macbook Pro is an early 2015 13-inch model. I'd argue that except for the upcoming M1 models, the 2015 model is where it's at in terms of portable macOS computing.
Both machines are plugged into a ViewSonic VX2718 27" 165hzcurved display.
I switch between 3 keyboards depending on what I'm doing. The one that I use the most is a Keychron K8 (Gateron Blue). For longer typing/coding sessions, I use a Magicforce-68 (Cherry Brown). And for intense gaming sessions, I use a Razer Blackwidow Chroma TE Stealth.
The mouse that I've been using for a year now is a Logitech M720 Triathlon. I keep telling myself that I don't need a Logitech MX Masters 3, but I really, really want one.
Audio + Video
My system's audio revolves around a Native Instruments Komplete Audio 6 Mk.I USB Interface.
The mic I use is an Audio Technica ATR2500 USB mic, which for some reason, only gets recognized by Windows and Mac as "Advanced USB Audio Device". 🤷♂️
I also like to swap earphones / headphones depending on the use-case. The one that's almost always plugged in is a pair of TFZ-T2's, but I like to swap it with either a pair of KZ ZS10 Pros or an Audio-Technica ATH-M40x when I'm recording or mixing music.
My Digital Audio Workstation right now is Reaper, although I'm still getting used to it since I've been using Logic Pro and Garageband since 2013.
I edit my videos using Davinci Resolve 17.
I use Habitica (as an installed Desktop Web App) for managing my tasks and habits.
I design almost entirely in Figma.
If you've made it this far, then you're awesome, I guess? 😂
