Issue 21 of Music Tech Magazine
Music Tech Magazine has come of age. It\'s our 21st issue and we\'re celebrating by giving readers a DVD free with every issue, with over 4GB of samples and software squeezed onto it. This stunning DVD includes two grand piano virtual instruments, IK Multimedia\'s Sonik Synth 2 Free, Making Waves V5 Lite and masses more. Quite simply, it\'s the biggest and best giveaway any music technology magazine has ever offered. Accompanying this fantastic gift, we\'ve also produced what we think is our best issue yet.

If you\'ve ever wondered how to take your laptop on stage, then this month\'s cover feature - \'Laptops Live\' - will fill you in on everything you need to know. For those of you who haven\'t thought about taking the leap into live performance, this feature may provide you with the inspiration. No matter what your instrument of choice, the laptop is now an excellent tool for adding spice to your live sound - find out how in this month\'s Music Tech.
This month\'s issue also features the concluding part of Keith Gemmel\'s \'Music and the internet\' feature, which details how to get visitors to your site. It\'s one thing having a brilliantly designed website, but it\'s another getting people to browse it. Also in this month\'s Method section, you\'ll find Ten Minute Masters covering recording formats and gates/expanders, tutorials on Logic Pro 6, Sonar 4, Reason and Cubase SX/SL2. Talking of Cubase, in addition to the tutorial on SX/SL2, we\'ve included a guide to the new features in Cubase SX3.
Christmas is coming - sorry, but someone had to mention it - and our reviews section should be the first place you look before asking Santa for any new bits of kit. This month we\'ve packed our Test section with Apple Logic Pro 7, Cakewalk Sonar 4 Producer Edition, Muse Research Receptor, Mackie Big Knob and loads more.
The DVD which comes free with this issue includes complete working versions of IK Multimedia\'s Sonik Synth 2 Free and SampleTank 2 Free; a full version of Making Waves v5 Lite; a 45-day, test-drive version of Sonar 4 Producer; a time-out version of GigaStudio 3; two pianos from PMI (the Emperor and the Old Lady); plus tons more demos and samples.
