Musician and recording engineer, Peterson Goodwyn, was looking for components to add texture to his audio recordings. With analog recording gear becoming increasingly sought after and consequently, expensive, Goodwyn sought other options. Applying "a little patience and research" Goodwyn realized that he could build the components that he needed for a fraction of the cost of buying them. Connecting with others with a strong DIY spirit, he saw a market for his DIY audio kits and founded DIY Recording Equipment (DIYRE). Like so many great start ups, DIYRE's foundations were in Goodwyn's basement. Realizing the limitations of his space and tools, he joined NextFab allowing a greater level of sophistication in development and production.
