Issue Cover

MusicTech  |  July 2020  


The human voice can be a malleable instrument. In a mix, it can be chopped, duplicated or used as the raw material to craft apocalyptic choirs or ethereal soul-tugging soundscapes. In a conventional track, the central hook is usually carried within the vocal melody, and so it’s massively important that the recording, treatment and placement of the vocal is done to the highest possible standard.
In this month’s cover feature, starting on page 014, Jono Buchanan guides us through the steps required to create such perfect vocals, and suggests a few more creative ways with which to manipulate the voice.
Also this month, we spend some quality time with production icon Stephen Street, whose impact on British rock is nothing short of seismic. Recently awarded the Outstanding Contribution to UK Music by the MPG, Stephen explains his process, thoughts on the industry and studio memories on page 024.
Elsewhere, you’ll find a fun guide to crafting your own multisample instrument using household items, and we head to Barcelona to learn more about DJ and producer Wehbba’s incorporation of found sound into his work.
In this month’s tutorial section, we focus on techniques using all the major DAWs, and recent interviewee Jesse Ray Ernster guest-writes a guide to his go-to drum gating approaches in Pro Tools. On the review bench, there’s a mountain of tantalising gear to read up on, including Logic’s sizeable recent update, Arturia’s thrilling KeyStep Pro, and Moog’s semi-modular wonder, the Subharmonicon. I hope you enjoy the issue.

Within every issue of MusicTech readers learn about music production and recording, ways to improve their technique and tracks to inspire their creativity. If recreating vintage studio sounds excites you, then you’ll be glad to hear that every issue includes hands-on guides to teach you different areas of creating music. Packed full of gear reviews and pro tips too, a MusicTech magazine subscription is the perfect gift for anyone wanting to create and master their music.


Written by musicians and industry experts, you will learn how to make your music stand out and add different flavours to your mixes from the pros themselves. Maybe you’re eager to build your own studio and share it with your community of music enthusiasts? Or perhaps you just want to stay up to date with the latest music news or new tech releases? Whatever your passion, you’re sure to find it within a MusicTech digital magazine subscription

Excellent magazine. Always look forward to reading the latest issue Reviewed 21 May 2020

MusicTech

Great Magazine please do more software content and some more freeware reviews. It's getting harder to pick the best of the Freeware VST and DAW lot. But could I ask that you do a Cakewalk by Bandlab review. One thing that gets me is that so much on what is in Cakewalk already is still only now coming to Studio One and other paid for DAW's. Yet you magazines avoid mentioning that. Please reach out to the Cakewalk Backers and write a really good review of a free product that quite honestly is fantastic. Reviewed 24 March 2020

Great mag and easy to read mobile version

This is a great way to read the mag and the new easy-to-read mobile version makes it even easier to read the content on your phone when out and about. Reviewed 15 August 2016

Xperia play

Very good, but needs to be a mobile edition, bigger text and what not. Also it would benefit from hardware controlls. But all in all very good and affordable. Reviewed 23 November 2012
