What would a mix issue be without a mixer? We test the Mackie Onyx-i FireWire-capable mixers and see what’s new and exciting in this lovely mix (sorry) of analog warmth and digital flexibility. Also in this issue: the magnificent Everest channel strip signal processor from Summit Audio, two impeccably-voiced microphones from ADK, a tabletop interface and DSP engine from Focusrite, world-class soundware from FXpansion and AudioBro, and lots of other products on review.
The September issue continues our look into the legalities of music creation with more from respected music-industry lawyer Todd Gascon and journeyman recording artist Bruce Kaphan, an intriguing look forward to a little-known part of the AES show this fall in San Francisco, and much more. Make your mixes marvelously magical with the wit and wisdom of the September 2010 RECORDING!
