Issue 24 of Music Tech Magazine
Issue 24 of Music Tech Magazine has hit the shops and there are no surprises as to what we\'ve been playing with since getting back from this year\'s NAMM show at Anaheim, California. Reason 3.0 is finally with us and we\'ve been using every spare minute to play around with the new Combinator patches and mastering effects. Since we\'ve been having so much fun, we thought it only be fair to write up our experiences and give you the first ever in-depth Reason 3.0 review. Find out exactly what we thought in this month\'s issue.
In addition to Reason 3.0, we\'ve also been hard at work reviewing Native Instruments\' Absynth 3, Arturia\'s ARP2600 V, Roland\'s MV-8000 the all-in-one hardware DAW, Sony\'s Acid Pro 5, FL Studio 5 XXL and many more...
Studio engineer, producer and MTM contributor Huw Price knows how to get the best from a vocalist and has imparted no small amount of this knowledge in this month\'s lead feature; Capturing the Perfect Vocal. Huw offers tips on everything from the best equipment to use, to dealing with the vocalists themselves. If you intend to record vocals anytime soon, Huw\'s article will help you make your session memorable and productive.
Software reverbs are now considered by many to be as powerful as their hardware equivalents. Mark Cousins\' feature on Software Reverb takes a look at the range and quality of effects available in the digital domain and how to make the best use of space in your recordings. We\'ve also got a feature on composing mobile phone ringtones, which highlights another way for home and project studio owners to make some money from their talents.
Our tutorials this month include a guide to Logic Pro 7\'s new drum machine Ultrabeat, the Play Order track in Cubase SX/SL3 and advanced drum production in Pro Tools, as well as Ten Minute Masters on Psychoacoustics and Multi-band Processing.
If all of these features, reviews and tutorials aren\'t enough to persuade you to run to your local newsagent for the latest issue of MTM, the MTM CD this issue includes demos of Ultimate Sound Bank\'s X-treme FX, Bornemark Software\'s Broomstick Bass and Arturia\'s ARP2600 V, a full version of Kjaerhus\' Classic Auto Filter and four multi-track drum recordings of Sugarhill Gang drummer Keith Le Blanc from the Drumdrops collections Disco Drops and Temple Of Boom.
