July 31st 2018: Site development on hold until Autumn. Following last week's unwelcome hacker attack, the Cambridge-MT site seems now to be back in a reasonably stable and usable condition, although we can't guarantee we've completely removed all malicious scripts from the server. However, I was already planning to completely redevelop the site in September/October to accompany the forthcoming second edition of Mixing Secrets For The Small Studio, during which process the server will be totally cleaned out and reinitialised. Until then, though, I won't be adding any new resources, so as to avoid destabilising the current site in the short term. If you'd like to support my ongoing development of this site, please consider joining the Cambridge-MT Patrons. Thanks for your understanding. Mike S.
