The iPad and iPhone were supposed to usher in a new dawn of music making, but it’s certainly taken long enough for that dream to come true. Yes, there were some fabulous early apps and synths – Auria, the Arturia and Korg suites and GarageBand, naturally – but the whole experience was, for me anyway, quite sterile and the lack of any tactile feedback meant I never jumped over to using an iOS device as my sole music maker.

But then Korg’s Gadget arrived. It was the first all-in-one DAW that I found myself using to produce complete tunes in minutes, plus it was an app that allowed me to transfer ideas I had out and about to my desktop setup with relative ease.

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…
