In December, everyone's thoughts turn to gift-giving and gift-getting... and we at RECORDING are no different. It's time once again for our annual Holiday Gift Guide, packed full of mini-reviews of all kinds of fun, funky, and useful musical products!
Remember that this isn't just a collection of marketing literature; every product we mention in the Guide has been tested by our staff and given the thumbs-up as a worthwhile gift. We provide you with real insights on over 40 different products, from iOS software to guitar pedals, from microphones to roadie carts, from portable controllers to portable video/audio recorders... and a game controller that also happens to be a very affordable and powerful MIDI guitar!
Among many others, look for reviews of hardware products by Blue, Glyph, Korg, Line 6, M-Audio, NuForce, RockNRoller, Roland, Yamaha, You Rock Guitar, and Zoom; computer software and soundware from Audio Damage, Madrona Labs, PSP Audioware, Puremagnetik, RealSamples, Slate Digital, Tone2, Toontrack, U-He, Valhalla DSP, and Vir2 Instruments; and iOS products from Audanika, Audiofile Engineering, Frontier Design Group, Griffin, and many more!
We fill out our gear coverage with in-depth look at a versatile field recorder from Zoom, powerful new audio modules from Radial Engineering, and a sexy set of desktop dual-concentric monitors from Equator Audio.
And that's not all! Also in this issue: Mark Hornsby continues his enlightening articles on creating real success in the music business; Michael Schulze weighs in on useful tricks when creating audio for video; and we feature a fascinating interview and studio-recording article on Electrons, a project featuring players and producers whose credits include Frank Zappa, Missing Persons, Duran Duran, The Cure, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Collective Soul, Elton John, Megadeth, and more!
Whether you're looking for gifts that you'd actually like to find waiting for you when you open the wrapper, or looking for insights on top-class home studio production and creative success, you won't want to miss the December RECORDING!
