Mason on Computer Music cover!

Its no secret that Mason are pretty geeky when it comes to their productions.

In this month's edition of Computer Music there's an insight into their World which features a cover mount CD sample pack chock full of their signature sounds and samples.

The sample pack is the result of a lot of hard work playing with weird analogue kit and generally hiding away in a darkened studio for days on end. 

The magazine is out now.
