Many thanks for all the entries to the readership survey we published last issue. We've had literally hundreds to sort through all with interesting comments on the mag which have been taken on board. The most encouraging thing to come from it was that practically everybody seems happy with the format as it is so we must be doing something right! Anyway next issue we'll be picking the winning entries that will receive a years subscription.
So what have we in store for you this month? Well, all the regulars are there - Chris Smiths' synchronisation feature, Paul Overras' tutorial on the MIDI protocol plus a head to head review of the two major ST sequencer releases of the year - Cubase from Steinberg and Virtuoso from the Digital Muse. We also have an exclusive preview of the UK Electronica '89 concerts held on September the 23rd. If you're around on that date it sounds like quite a good bash. We will of course be there to cover the event for the next ish - we may see you there!
As for next issue we've got a few surprises in store, one of which involves a radical new concept in computer music software, the other must be kept a closely guarded secret. You'll just have to get the next edition to find out.
Also planned is a readers technical help section where you can send in your queries which we can (hopefully) sort out for you with our team of experts. So if you've got any problems involving your computer music set up, however big or small, then send them into us today. Need any more excuses to get the next ish? Okay how about a mega competition involving some bombastic prizes including a day in a professional recording studio. Stay tuned for more details!
Don't forget the next issue, is out on the 10th of November - see you then!
