As you're no doubt aware by now Britain's only magazine for Computer Musicians is now the only monthly magazine for Computer Musicians. Twice as many reviews, interviews, twice as much news plus some exciting new features planned for the next couple of issues including a tutorial series on music writing/notation plus an industry update section where we keep you informed of the latest developments on the top packages for the most popular computers plus hints and tips from the manufacturers themselves.
Also, in the next issue we will be giving away some stonking prizes in a free to enter competition.
We've got Casio's VZ-1 synthesizer plus a days professional studio time at ARC for the best demo sent into us. Full details in the next issue.
Still enough of the next issue, what about this one? We've got an in-depth look at The Digital Muse's Virtuoso, the first part of our micro sampler round up plus, of course our star interview with JJ. from the Art of Noise.
On a slightly different note, we've had several letters from readers with Spectrums and C64s wondering when we will be covering stuff for their machines. The truth of the matter is that we've been having a tough time tracking down any products for those machines. If you know of any companies still doing music software for any of the 8 bit machines please send us in some details and we'll get them reviewed for the next available issue. Alternatively, if you own one of these packages send us in a review (between 1000 and 2000 words in length) and we'll consider it for inclusion.
Anyway, enough waffle, enjoy the mag and see you again next month.
