As I write this, the annual NAMM show is wrapping up in California, bringing the curtain down on the year’s most significant outpouring of new instruments and studio gear (hence this issue’s bumper news section!) What trends can we divine from 2020’s forthcoming releases? Well, it looks like every MIDI controller has to have a sequencer built into it now (I can live with that), and synth brands are embracing the power of analogue-digital hybrids. With all this gear news, it can be easy to feel like your current setup is dated or inadequate, but it’s important to remember you don’t need the latest gear to make great music. It’s all about making the most of what you have. In a sense, that’s the heart of this issue’s resampling cover feature –…

is the mpc one the backpack-sized beatmaker you’ve been waiting for?

It’s fair to say the past decade has seen a few twists and turns for Akai’s iconic MPC line. In 2012, the range morphed from its traditional ‘all-in-one-box’ format to become a hybrid controller-software system more akin to NI Maschine. In 2017, however, the MPC returned to its standalone roots with the impressive MPC Live and its behemoth sibling the MPC X. The One now joins that range as a more compact and wallet-friendly counterpart to the MPC Live. Much of what impressed us about the MPC Live remains intact here. As you’d expect with any MPC, the main focal point of the control panel is a grid of backlit, velocity-sensitive performance pads. As with the Live and X, these are joined by a high-def 7” touchscreen along with four touch-sensitive…

moog’s subsequent 25 updates the sub phatty for modern studios

We first got word that Moog might have a new synth on the way thanks to a leak back in December, and now the US synth icons have confirmed the arrival of their latest, the Subsequent 25. As its name suggests this new instrument shares a lineage with Moog’s Subsequent 37 and its predecessor the Sub 37, although its closest relative is 2013’s Sub Phatty, which it replaces in Moog’s line-up. The Subsequent 25 is a two-note paraphonic analogue synth paired with a 25-note keyboard, making it the most compact of Moog’s current crop of non-modular synths. It packs two oscillators, which are accompanied by an additional sub oscillator and noise generator. These can be used in two ways – Unison mode, whereby the three oscillators are stacked, and the new…

2hp’s lunchbox is a tasty mini eurorack case to take on your “modular picnics”

2HP have unveiled the Lunchbox, a cute little Eurorack case that you’ll be able to buy on its own or stuffed with tasty modular morsels. This 42HP case comes fully powered and with a latchable lid, and thanks to its carry handle, can be played with pretty much anywhere. If you want something that’ll run out of the box, you can choose to have one of 2HP’s Picnic Basket, Synth Voice, Drum Machine or Effects Box systems installed. Otherwise, you can fill the Lunchbox with your own modules. Expected in March, the Lunchbox’s price is still to be decided, but you can find out more on the 2HP website.…
