Summer brings to mind sunny days, beaches, parties... and what would all of that be without a guitar or two... or three... or fifty? Come join us for the July issue of RECORDING, where we dive into the endless delights of All Things Guitar!
Frank Gambale is a guitar luminary -- a legend in the studio, an educator and a great source of guitar recording wisdom. We bring you a great interview in which Frank discusses his latest projects and explains his approach to great guitar recordings. Speaking of educators who really know how to make guitars sound great, we have two fantastic articles from Michael Schulze in this issue! The coproducer of our video series not only gives us a great primer on miking guitar amps, but goes into detail on the many applications of stereo miking as well.
If you've heard the term "reamping" but really aren't sure as to what it is, how it works, what it sounds like, or what it can mean to your recordings, you won't want to miss this issue, as Paul Vnuk Jr. teaches about the wonder and wisdom of reamping and takes a hard look at reamping products from Radial Engineering and Little Labs.
Paul also brings us a look at the Telefunken M80 and M81 mics on guitar cabs as well as other applications, and gets way into new guitar processors from Chandler Limited, aided and abetted by Allen Goodman. We round out our guitar-gear coverage with reviews of the cool new G5 processor (and its little brother the G3) from Zoom, the Korg Pandora mini, the tone-mangling FutzBox from McDSP, cool guitar and mic interfaces from Apogee, and much more.
Add in our regular features, a new Recording Fundamentals from Eric Ferguson, Readers' Tapes with Marty Peters, and more, and you have a summertime feast that's sure to satisfy, whether you're into guitars or the broader recording landscape. Come join us at the picnic for the July RECORDING!
