THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO IOS MUSIC PRODUCTION

Making music on the move has long been a reality with your iPad and iPhone and now the iOS format can integrate perfectly with your recording studio, so here is MusicTech’s Essential Guide to iOS music production…

MT ESSENTIAL GUIDE

PART 8

The history of music technology has always been exciting (well, to us here at MusicTech, naturally!). That’s not to say that it hasn’t had its moments of darkness – strap-on synthesisers, for example – but the last few decades have seen the technology that lies behind studio production twist and turn on a quite magical journey. At one time, it was all about ‘digital’ technology, then ‘in the box’ plug-ins, then a swing back to ‘analogue’ – all phrases that studio boffins have come to know and love, as technology advanced and swept us all along. But who could have predicted at the turn of this century that we would become obsessed with ‘touch’ technology – that swiping, gesturing, pinching and tapping would become so much a part of our existences and that mobile would become the latest tech to sweep the music-production world?

IOS TAKES OVER

The Apple iPhone was 10 years old last year. It seems older; it feels like it’s been with us forever, such is its ubiquitousness. A decade isn’t that great a time period, but Apple has shifted more than 1.2 billion of them. The iPad has sold close to 400 million units since its launch in 2010, so the iOS software that drives both of these devices has been touched by a lot of people – a big chunk and proportion of the world’s population.

About MusicTech

In this issue, we’ve amassed the ultimate collection of professional advice on all things music; whether that's creating, recording, mixing, mastering or everything in between. Compiled from our interviews with such luminaries as John Leckie, Tony Visconti and Gary Numan, we’ve also got tips and alternative approaches from our (both pro and amateur) music-making audience. We hope this feature provides some inspiration for your creative studio endeavours. Also this issue, we chat to Catherine J Marks, a producer with some seriously impressive credits to her name and a nominee for this year’s MPG Producer Of The Year. We also spend some time with The Flashbulb, whose beautiful studio in the natural tranquility of Georgia is a thing to behold. We wrap up our A-Z series with Gear4Music, which is chock full of all the key terms and techniques that you need to know. We’ve also got our usual vast array of reviews and hands-on tutorial content, as well as an extensive guide to creating music on the move with an iPhone or iPad. We hope you enjoy the issue…
