Coverage of recording related equipment has always been important to Sound On Sound. It obviously is to you, too, for many readers have expressed a desire to see more articles explaining the applications of equipment the magazine reviews in a recording environment. Your requests have not been in vain, for in the ensuing issues you will start to see a much greater emphasis being placed on articles that demonstrate what you can do with hi-tech instruments and recording equipment, and how you can make better use of them.
Heading in the right direction, this month David Mellor presents an overview to his new series called 'Recording Techniques' (p.34), which is aimed at demystifying the recording process and laying bare this 'black art'. Follow the series each month and you will learn many so-called tricks of the trade, as well as gain a terrific insight into the professional recording world. If it proves as popular as David's 'How To Set Up A Home Studio' series, then we're all in for a treat.
Incidentally, for those who enjoyed David's articles and would like to keep his words of wisdom close to hand, the home studio series will soon be appearing in the revised and expanded form of a book. Full details of availability in due course... Meanwhile, enjoy the issue.
