VINTAGE KIT REWIND

The Roland RE-201 Space Echo was the tape delay that inspired a generation, with a sound that came from another dimension – pay close attention!

One of the things that I’ve always liked about the Eurorack synth industry is the eccentric naming that some modules have, often leaving no clue as to what the product actually does. Of course, I can hear the non-modular heads shouting: “What’s the point in an obscure product name?” Well really, there’s none at all. But what it does do is offer that cool quotient, either in the name itself, or in the sheer fact that only you will know what it does.

About MusicTech

In this issue, we look ahead, and analyse two massively exciting innovations that are already fundamentally affecting the music-making and listening worlds. In our cover feature this month, we explore the history, science and music-production implications of virtual reality. VR headsets are becoming increasingly popular and with a wide range of music-themed VR applications available to buy or in development, we ask whether making music in virtual space will rival the traditional DAW-based method, and how composing with virtual reality in mind requires a whole new approach to mixing. Elsewhere, we explore the astounding new realm of hologram performance, speaking to those companies that have used modern optics technology to, in a sense, resurrect deceased musicians and send them back out to the live arena. We discuss the technology behind – as well as the ethical implications of – holograms. Also in this issue, we speak to the legendary Howard Jones, LA’s genre-defying Battle Tapes as well as video-game sound designer Matt Boch, who explains how, when working on the recent game Ape Out, he approached soundtracking in an incredibly unique way. We review the latest tech from Universal Audio, Elektron, EastWest and Korg and also bring you a buyer’s guide to turntables, should you want to try your hand at a spot of DJ’ing. I hope you enjoy the issue.
