He is also a well known music technology expert regularly appearing on Sonic State’s weekly podcast Sonic Talk as well as co hosting the iPad/touch device show Sonic Touch.

What Gaz says about the Sonuus Wahoo:

“I was blown away by the Wahoo. We first reported about it on Sonic State when it debuted at the Namm 2012 winter show and I was desperate to get hold of one as soon as possible.  The smoothness of the filter is unbelievable and I have been able to get some of the thickest, juiciest wah and filter sweeps I’ve ever heard.  I especially appreciate the synth like complexities with fully adjustable LFO’s and envelopes but am incredibly impressed with how easy the computer editor is to operate."
