E&MM Launches New Publication
The September '83 issue of E&MM will be sold with a FREE copy of HOME STUDIO RECORDING, a brand new magazine from the publishers of E&MM.
In the last few years, home recording has fast become a major area of active interest for musically inclined people. Almost everyone involved with making music has extended their practical and creative skills by recording music in their own home studio.
With the appearance of low cost recording equipment at a quality hitherto found only in recording studios, the musician is now able to dabble in an area previously exclusive to top professional groups and performers.
'Home Studio Recording' has also been an increasing part of E&MM's pages, so much so that it now requires a whole new magazine to cover it fully!
The techniques of recording are no longer the mystical secrets of professional sound engineers and studio technicians — if you're an electro-musician or just serious about listening to music, you soon become involved with home recording.
HOME STUDIO RECORDING will give you the answers to creative recording, even with the most basic set-up, and show you the latest equipment that will help you build up your own home studio at minimum expense.
Each month HSR will be looking at many aspects of the recording process, revealing techniques used by the professional that can be applied to home studio equipment.
Reviews will cover cassette, tape and video recording machines, mixers, microphones, monitors, amps, headphones, sound processors and all the accessories that will become part of the successful home studio.
HSR regular features will focus on specific areas like using mixers, recording with portable keyboards, interfacing equipment, video music and multitracking. We'll also expand cassette reviews to get more up and coming composers/recordists into the magazine each month.
E&MM's continuing success has been due to its practical and technical approach that makes it like no other music publication — our greatest compliment is to see its content copied in print, but E&MM's strength lies in the experience of its editorial staff and consultants worldwide.
HSR will contain electronic and computer-based projects for the home studio and will feature interviews with top musicians who compose in their own studio, helpful advice from studio engineers and producers, as well as visits to active home recordists.
At the same time E&MM will concentrate more pages on the new directions of music making, particularly for the musician with a micro. Currently, computer magazines have only discussed what is already available for the computer musician, but E&MM's policy will be to continue to investigate new ways of using the micro to make music — from next month in our COMPUTER MUSICIAN supplement.
