JK has a desire to help people understand and get the most out of their gear. In 2009, he started SoundsAndGear.com as a virtual outlet for product reviews, tutorials, demonstrations, and testing, in conjunction with the SoundsAndGear YouTube channel.

His desire is to continue helping others find, learn, and use their musical tools in a way that allows them to fully experience whatever creativity they wish to express. Find him at jkswopes.com, maschinetutorials.com, or on social media.
