Time For A Change

It's time for a change — the nation demands it. After years of the same old thing, a fresh approach is called for! What's that? No, of course this isn't a Party Election Broadcast time-warped from a couple of weeks back — I'm referring to the fact that Sound On Sound is now perfect bound! (Def: pages glued together down the side, rather than stapled.) Yes folks, they just don't make staples big enough to hold together our magazine — this latest issue of Europe's leading hi-tech music recording monthly runs to 160 pages (twice the size of other music monthlies!), and the change means that, even more than before, we'll consistently be able to bring you more news, reviews and in-depth features than any other magazine in the market. Needless to say, we'll also carry on doing that job better than anyone else.

The extra space that bigger issues provide allows us to bring you new articles, such as the ST, Mac, PC and Amiga columns in this issue, and series such as Warren Cann's on drum programming, and it will allow us to both broaden and deepen our editorial coverage over the coming year.

This month we also have product news from the Frankfurt Musik Messe, an exclusive interview with Thomas Dolby (some people treasure plectra used by their favourite axe heros; I have a key from the SH101 that Dolby destroyed on the last night of the Flat Earth tour), a round-up of all the digital reverbs, delays and multi-effects units on the market (quite a challenge — some manufacturers' product ranges change pretty fast, and since compiling the table at least one new unit has appeared on the market), a rare and quite exhaustive feature on influential avant garde composer Karlheinz Stockhausen, plus several other major features and plenty of hot reviews.

One of those reviews was written by Paul White, who has left his post as Editor of Home & Studio Recording to join the team here at SOS Publications, and I am delighted to say that he will be contributing regularly to Sound On Sound, further strengthening our highly respected team of writers.
