welcome

“We’re in an era of choice, connectivity and creativity” Although us music-obsessed folks here at cm HQare proud to champion computer-based tune-making, we never shun the use of outboard gear. If anything, we’re excited to live in a world where anyone can make music using any conceivable combination of physical and virtual tools. We’re in an era of choice, connectivity and creativity. That’s why we’re exploring the synergy between modern digital and classic gear this month. First, our cover feature, Punch & Power (p20), shows you how to use both analogue-modelled and digital mixing tools to strike the perfect balance between classic dynamics and modern weight. After that, house pro Alex Arnout makes a track from scratch on video (p42), using his enviable array of classic Roland kit alongside in-the-box mixing – grab…

uad software v9.1

It could be an expensive month for lovers of Universal Audio’s DSPpowered UAD-2 plugins, with five new releases. Let’s power on the Apollo Twin and check them out… In recent years, UA have offered improved remakes of several older plugins, and now their official emulation of the iconic SSL 4000 E Channel Strip (£229) gets this treatment. It offers high and low filtering, four-band EQ, gating/expansion and punchy compression. The new version is fully remodelled with “end-to-end circuit emulation”, capturing aspects like the Jensen mic preamp transformers and dbx “gold-can” VCA output. It’s now Unison-ready, so owners of a UA Apollo interface can record through the emulated mic/line preamp stages, with hardware impedance matching. The Moog Multimode Filter Collection (£189) features the all-new Multimode Filter XL and the previous UAD Moog filter…

app watch

Before we get into the app news, a quick word on Apple’s new iPad. Its name might not feature a suffix, but this is actually the replacement for the ageing iPad Air 2, and at £339 for the entry-level 32GB version, is now the cheapest Apple tablet. We like the look of it, and we suspect that many musicians will feel the same. www.apple.com You might think that you know what a sequencer looks like, but Seaquence will surely convince you otherwise. This new iPhone, iPad and iPod touch app enables you to make music using not a grid or row of buttons, but a collection of sea creatures, which change their behaviour as you adjust parameters. It sounds like a gimmick, but there’s a polyphonic synthesis module working away behind…

get with the programmers

“The games are fully personalised, as the level increases according to your achievements” cm What’s your background in music and in programming? NG “I think I have the programmer mindset. I understand programming… but I don’t write code. We have two great programmers on the SoundGym team, and I think that this ‘programmer mindset’ of mine makes the communication and the idea-to-product process very fluent and effective. Besides being CEO at SoundGym, I’m a musician (producing music under the name Gingold X), and a sound designer. I love synths and technology, and Reaktor is my dreamland, where I can make crazy sonic ideas come true.” cm What inspired you to create SoundGym? NG “I wanted to create a unique environment, where music producers and engineers can get proper audio ear training and improve their…
