SOS Reviews EW MIDI Guitar Instrument Series

From Sound On Sound September issue: "Despite its somewhat humble beginnings, MIDI has revolutionised the way we compose, re cord and perform music. It is, however, a technology that is somewhat easier to capitalise upon if you happen to play keyboards. For those whose primary instrument skills lie elsewhere, generating MIDI note performances from your (non-keyboard) instrument of choice can still be a frustrating experience."

Fullerton College Graduate Becomes Youngest Audient Owner

California, USA – “It really is the little brother of the ASP8024 I have grown to know and love,” says Fullerton College Recording and Music Production graduate, Timothy Jones, describing the brand new ASP4816 he’s had delivered to his home studio in Orange County a few short weeks ago. Possibly the youngest Audient console owner in the world, he leaves Fullerton College this year with top grades -- and the world at his feet. Timothy proved himself keen to develop his music technology skills both in and out of the classroom by building a small control room in a converted industrial warehouse not far from his home. Using it to work on his own compositions either on his own or with other music

GearSlutz Reviews Sound Forge Audio Studio 12

"SFAS12 would be useful for anyone needing to digitize and edit old vinyl records, cassette tapes, or downloads, and for simple audio editing of video files. It could also serve as an adjunct to a DAW, as its default audio track editor. And with Ozone 7 Elements provided at no extra cost (currently selling for $129), it’s a very good buy."

The British Amp Invasion: How Marshall, Hiwatt, VOX, and More Changed the Sound Of Music

Montclair, NJ - The British Amp Invasion chronicles in detail how what seemed at first like a minor also-ran offshore industry turned quickly into a true world leader. The book features backstage histories, compelling behind-the-scenes stories, and liberal use of period imagery. British guitarists were primed to make some of the most influential music the world would ever know, but they needed a voice to do it - and British-made amplifiers gave them that voice. Many early notable American amps were designed for jazz, country, and dance-hall music, but the seminal British amps of the late 50s onward were designed to hit the ground running for rock 'n' roll. And as that music gradually dropped

Decibel Magazine: Bob Rock on Metallica (and UAD gear)

Music Marcom's own Martina McConnon facilitated an interview with legendary rock/metal producer Bob Rock with Decibel Magazine for our client Universal Audio. "Personally, I love digital. The transience is maintained. I don’t have to EQ as much. The whole argument to analog and digital. There’s a sound to analog. To me, it’s a plug-in now, a UA (Universal Audio) plug-in. I don’t have to fight it. I make warm records now. My records are big and fat. And digital." "What are some of your go-to plug-ins? I gather you’re into UA’s product." "Bob Rock: Ninety percent of what I use is UA, yes. I can tell you that my list of plug-ins is basically a list of what we just discussed. It’s funny, I got a
