Quote of the Day

“Be truthful—again it’s the question of personal integrity. You have to be a little bit obsessive, and you have to know what you’re doing. But after that’s all done, you put the driver in charge as being your soul, your emotion, your gut, your intuition.”- Wendy Carlos

Price: $5.99


Sample libraries and virtual instruments make it possible to collect entire symphony orchestras, jazz bands, world-music ensembles, and any other instrument you can think of, and put them into your computer for use in your songs. Pretty cool stuff... but there's a little bit of learning to do before you dive in. In this issue of Recording, we help you do just that.

You'll find articles on the passing of great sample-library technologies (Giga) and the birth of new ones (PLAY), in-depth reviews of astoundingly powerful virtual instruments from big-band jazz to soundtrack symphony, and an in-depth look at a sample recording session for a major library maker, with hints on how to get your own recordings library-ready.

All this plus a slate of really cool reviews, our monthly columns, Readers' Tapes with Marty Peters (now online), and much more. Dive into the world of sample libraries without fear, and learn lots more besides, in the January Recording!
