Whenever we make music, we’re – often unconsciously – attempting to move people in the same way that we ourselves have been moved by music. When I say moved, I don’t necessarily mean emotionally, either, it can be to dance, to think, to assist with zoning out and relaxing: basically, to have an effect on the ears and minds of other human beings.

With that in mind, it’s important to consider just how the artists we hold in high regard did that to us. Often it can be the subtle things – ie, the sonic signatures of production gear, which can be a major factor when listening to the work of the celebrated artists of yesteryear. However, in days gone by, unless you had a recording contract and thus the access to a high-end recording studio, that coveted gear wasn’t accessible to you. In today’s connected world, we can easily (and affordably) access high-quality reproductions of this legendary kit, which enable us to accurately capture their hallowed sonic characteristics.

About MusicTech

Emulating the artists that inspired us in our many music-making ventures is as much about rekindling those feelings as it is knowing how the sounds were created. In our cover feature this month we show you how to get impossibly close to the sonic signatures left by your musical heroes. Continuing the theme we present our newest feature ‘Recording Spotlight,’ where we speak to Peter Franco, engineer on Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories, and gain insight into the complex, painstaking work that went into creating this modern classic. Additionally, we sit down with dance-music producer Stefano Ritteri and rising UK production star Rhiannon Mair, get into the meat of Cubase 9.5 and get hands-on with all the latest gear, tech and software. We hope you enjoy the issue…
