make some space in your studio…

…because there’s some new gear coming your way very soon! The annual NAMM show is our chance to feast our eyes on a massive range of fresh music making technology, as well as get the lowdown on what else is coming in the year. 2020’s show was no exception, with hundreds of new products all vying for our (increasingly short) attention. This month we’ve highlighted what we think is the very best tech we saw; from synths, hardware, software, plug-ins, accessories and beyond, our cherry-picked selections should give your wallet plenty of food for thought. And, yes—it might be the case that you need to exchange some of that older gear to make room for the next generation. Speaking of new tech, this issue we also speak to the inventive co-founder of…

Subliminal Atmospheres Our lead pack of royalty-free loops this month utilises a unique plug-in called PaulXStretch, which is an updated version of Paul’s Extreme Time Stretch. This effect allows you to dramatically stretch a sound (think more like a thousand times longer as opposed to doubling in length), which can turn any piece of audio into an evocative, ambient soundscape. Sound designer Richard James has used various sound sources, including airports, pianos, whale noises, voices, guitars, synths, drums, effects, and forest sounds to create a pack of 100 slowly evolving, cinematic textures. Size 966 MB Format 24-bit/44.1kHz WAV. Future Bass Kits This pack from Equinox Sounds includes three construction kits that blur the boundaries between trap, hip-hop and future bass, with powerful sounds inspired by artists like San Holo, Xan Griffin, MiTiS and more.…

THE MIDI REVOLUTION After what feels like an eternity of speculation and rumours, MIDI 2.0 is finally upon us. At this year’s NAMM Show, members of the MIDI Manufacturers Association (MMA) attended their Annual Meeting to finalise the specifications of MIDI 2.0. According to the MMA’s report, “the complete suite of MIDI 2.0 specifications were adopted unanimously by the MMA members in attendance”. The specifications for the new protocol included; MIDI Capability Inquiry (update), Universal MIDI Packet & MIDI 2.0 protocol, Common Rules for MIDI-CI Profiles, Common Rules for MIDI-CI Property Exchange, Property Exchange Foundational Resources and Basic Resources. MIDI 2.0 will open up the conversation both ways; whilst MIDI has been a one-way monologue, with a transmitter and receiver, MIDI 2.0 is bi-directional. Therefore, MIDI 2.0 enabled devices will be able to…

new year new gear

The annual NAMM show has always been a very big deal for us here at MusicTech. Not only does the show allow us to get out of our office and see the industry face-to-face, but we also have the chance to get hands-on with a mountain of new music technology products, get some sneak previews of the next twelve months of releases and also see how the latest technological innovations are being applied to the next generation of music-making gear. In this feature we’ve compiled just some of the hundreds of new items that caught our eye at the show; these are the new products that made us go weak at the knees and look like they’re going to signifcantly change the way we make music—or just be a hell…
