It's been a great summer so far, and as we head into fall, we look ahead to exciting new technology for the recording musician. Our September issue delivers the goods on a topic that's vital to the musicians we serve: The state of the DAW in 2012.
Nothing is constant but change, and music creation software today has to do different things than were expected of it even a few years ago. We gather the most important and trend-setting changes in the world of DAWs and lay them out in earily understood terms. This is combined with a first look at the most hotly-anticipated new DAW of the year-the mindblowing Auria, that provides multitrack recording, plug-ins, mixdown, drum replacement, and more... all on an iPad.
Our look at DAWs and music creation on iOS continues with reviews of portable-studio and multitrack recording apps, as well as a couple of extremely powerful sample-playback instruments with impressive onboard libraries. Look for reviews of products by Camel Audio, IK Multimedia, and Retronyms. And for your computer DAW, we review soundware from U-He, Cinematic Strings, Best Service, and more.
Away from the world of DAWs, there's a spread of fascinating articles, interviews and reviews for every recording musician. We look at new microphones from Audio-Technica and Cascade, a portable and affordable audio interface from Focusrite, and a hands-on test of Yamaha's powerful new 01V96i digital console/interface/control surface. Accomplished LA-based producer Jim Roach shares his secrets for bringing out the best in recorded performances. And Eric Ferguson takes us down the recording signal chain in Recording Fundamentals.
All this and more makes for a fascinating reading experience. Whether you're keen to know the newest DAW tech or eager for timeless knowledge on tracking and production, there's something to love in the September 2012 RECORDING!
