MUSIC SOUNDS BETTER WITH YOU

You no longer need to be a studio pro to make sweet sounds with tech, so isn’t it time you let those creative juices flow? All you need now is some instruments…

Synths

Want to make old-skool electro pop music like Depeche Mode and New Order, or challenging ambient soundscapes like Ariana Grande? Put yourself to (Kraft)werk with our pick of the coolest dinky DIY synths and vital add-ons.

Strings

Guitarists get to pick from Fender’s 10-in-1 Telecaster, Vox’s 11-in-1 amp, a Bluetooth six-string that fits in your backpack, and a bunch of axe-cessories including the secret of Ed Sheeran’s loopy success.

Keys

Pia pia piano time like the present to learn the keyboard and join a band. Check out the LED keys that light your way to brilliance, the touchpads favoured by Wu-Tang’s RZA, and the Akai mini marvel that can follow you everywhere

Beats

Whether you want to drum like Animal from the Muppets or scratch like Mix Master Mike, Sphero’s smart rings make beats on any surface… and you’ll need bomber jacket at the ready for the return of Technics’ legendary decks

ROLAND TR - 08

Modelled on Roland’s legendary TR-808 drum machine, the TR-08 is a beat maker from the brand’s boutique range and has all the classic electro and hip-hop kicks. The original 808 was even used by Marvin Gaye to programme the grooves to Sexual Healing, y’know. The battery-powered 08 is more compact, but still manages to squeeze in a sequencer for snare fills and intricate hi-hats, plus a mini speaker for instant gratification on the move. £319 / roland.com
