the 6 WAYS TO GET A GREAT GUITAR SOUND

Don’t play or own a guitar but want some rock or country sounds in your tunes? Well, it’s now easier than ever to use the technology at your fingertips to create realistic axe tones. Here are six common and not so obvious methods…

Some of us, no names mentioned, got into making music with technology, simply because making music with real instruments was so damned hard. We tried to learn guitar years ago, but the bloody strings hurt our delicate little fingers.

Piano? Yep, tried that too, but the ancient person teaching it practiced educational methods from the 19th century that were enough to put us off music making for years. Then, thank you technology gods, along came computers, and we never had to pick up a recorder or experience piano witchcraft ever again.

About MusicTech

Mastering is frequently regarded as a technique that is best left to the experts, one that requires an almost superhuman level of hearing and a bespoke mastering suite, filled with state of the art equipment. It’s little wonder that when many music makers and producers reach that stage in the process, they outsource their mastering without a second thought. However, that need not always be the case. In our cover feature this month, Adam Crute unravels the deep mysteries of mastering and explains how – with a little know-how – you can take on the daunting task of preparing your music for release yourself. Also in this issue, we had the amazing honour of speaking to Doctor Who’s new composer Segun Akinola. A BAFTA Breakthrough Brit, Segun’s compositions for the beloved series are inspired by the original, experimental approach that the BBC’s Radiophonic Workshop spearheaded in the 1960s, but they still retain his own unique stamp. Elsewhere, we have a whole new heap of lovely products in our review section, with IK’s all-analogue UNO synth in particular being a tremendously useful (and fun!) piece of tech. Our practical, DAW-specific guides this month cover a typically vast range of topics alongside a general guide to EQing your tracks. I hope you enjoy this issue.
