back from the future…

I write this fresh from MusicTech’s annual sojourn to Anaheim, California where, once again, we were lucky enough to spend some hands-on time with a wealth of brand-new music technology, set for release at various points throughout 2019. The show was an eye-opening experience for various reasons: aside from the pure, giddy thrill of getting to see and hear what the industry has in store for us this year, it was wonderful to see so much eagerness, across the industry, to empower today’s music maker, whatever their budgets and creative ideas may be. This has always been our own modus operandi and it’s heartening to see the same mindset pervading the music-technology landscape. That’s not to say there weren’t still those products that cater for the higher, pro-end of the…

alan r pearlman

We were saddened by the news that synth pioneer Alan Robert Pearlman passed away in January in Newton, Massachusetts, after a long illness. He was 93.From an early age, Alan R. Pearlman was named ‘ARP’ by his school friends, and the company that he founded took his nickname. In his earlier years of employment, Pearlman worked as a designer of instrumentation amplifiers for NASA, working on both the Gemini and Apollo space programmes. It was in 1969 that he started ARP Instruments, Inc. with $100,000 of his own money and investor funds. Originally named Tonus Inc, ARP Instruments entered the then-fledgling synth industry with the production of the ARP 2002, going head-to-head with the other synth companies of the day.Pearlman drew upon his previous experience designing op-amps, utilising a dual-transistor…

kit out your studio

NAMM, aka the National Association of Music Merchants, offers us the chance to leave our studios and get some colour on our skin each year. It’s the extravaganza where all the music-gear companies announce their products for the year ahead, across all instrument types: guitar, drums, orchestral, piano, acoustic… you name it.With last year’s addition of two extra halls for high-tech music making, it has easily become our number-one destination every January. If you’ve been reading www.musictech.net over the last few weeks, you’ll have caught up with many of the announcements. So rather than bring you all that again, we’ve decided to round up the best bits – the bits you really need to see – and then asked the question: what 10 things did we learn from NAMM 2019…
