THE QUEST FOR TONE
What a magic word that is—it conjures images of fantastic guitar tracks, smooth bass, slammin’ drums, and much more. When you don’t have tone, you don’t have a record, no matter how much you work on everything else... and in the March Recording we take a look at this elusive, yet vital, aspect of making great music. Read about where tone comes from, what does and doesn’t influence it, and how you can seek and find it, no matter how simple your rig may be.
In this issue, we start our huge 2-part coverage of NAMM 2008, talk to jazz guitar great John Scofield about (what else?) his signature tone, and over a dozen unique product reviews.
Also in this issue: two articles that are bound to cause controversy... a first look at a new audio product endorsement program with some pretty impressive names behind it, and the truth about Microsoft Windows Vista and audio.
All this plus our monthly columns, Song Production in Pro Tools with Mark Hornsby, Readers’ Tapes with Marty Peters, and much more. Find your tone with the March Recording!
