I have never heard of Endel, and I just checked it out, and I have to say it’s amazing.

Assuming we are speaking about software tools;

Work:

  • Visual Studio or Visual Studio Code (depends what I'm doing)
  • Azure DevOps
  • Windows Terminal (and therein, PowerShell)
  • Whatever video conferencing solution is du jour
  • Microsoft Office (mainly Word, sometime Excel, Powerpoint under duress)

Not software, but essential for my sanity:

  • Noise Cancelling Headphones (Sony WH-1000XM3).

Pleasure:

  • Ableton Live
  • VCV Rack
  • Arturia V Collection (tied with NI Komplete, I guess).
  • Max for Live
  • Visual Studio Code

Not software, but essential for for everyone else's sanity:

  • Noise Cancelling Headphones.
