About MusicTech

Over the past 20 years the internet has transformed the world of music-making. Sharing our works-in-progress or collaborating with people around the globe is but a click away. But what if you've never done this before? Assembling the correct tools to begin doing this easily is the bedrock of this month’s cover feature, where we highlight the essential techniques, tips and resources to start composing in the Cloud. Elsewhere this issue, we speak to video game composer Jesper Kyd, whose impressive credits include many key games in the popular Hitman and Assassin’s Creed franchises. Kicking off our review section, we bring you an exclusive look at Yamaha's new MODX 6 – and discover it to be a wonderfully featured instrument that innovates on many levels. We also have our usual plethora of tutorials covering all the major DAWs, an essential guide to mixing that deconstructs that most crucial of processes, helpful gear-guides and more. I hope you enjoy the issue.
