Hard­ware over­load

Future Music - - FM | WELCOME - Si Truss, Ed­i­tor si­mon.truss@fu­turenet.com

This month’s FM is some­thing of a new gear frenzy. For the past few years now, the be­gin­ning of Au­tumn (sorry it’s of­fi­cially no longer sum­mer now) has brought with it a slew of new gear an­nounce­ments to ri­val Musikmesse or even NAMM. This Septem­ber has seen that tra­di­tion con­tinue, with a bumper crop of ex­cit­ing new gear re­leases ahead.

First up we’ve this is­sue’s two cover stars – Pi­o­neer’s bold stand­alone To­raiz sam­pler and NI’s brand new Mas­chine Jam con­troller. We’ve put these two stu­dio-and-stage span­ning tools head-to-head on our test bench, be­gin­ning on page 82. This is­sue fea­tures an ex­panded news sec­tion too, to fit in all the lat­est an­nounce­ments of ex­cit­ing gear from Korg, Roland and Spec­tra­son­ics.

We’ve cou­pled this on­slaught of hard­ware with our mas­sive Mod­ern Sam­pling cover fea­ture, a transat­lantic in­ter­view with elec­tronic icons Vince Clarke (Era­sure, Depeche Mode, Ya­zoo) and Paul Hartnoll (Or­bital), a mas­ter­class on sidechain tech­niques, and a whole lot more. We hope you en­joy the is­sue!
