SPO­TIFY FOR ARTISTS For un­signed artists, get­ting mu­sic on Spo­tify has tra­di­tion­ally in­volved pay­ing a third-party com­pany to help out, but things are chang­ing. The Spo­tify for Artists pro­gramme will en­able cre­ators to up­load their mu­sic di­rectly and free of charge. EASE THE LOGIC LOAD Dou­ble point-re­lease DAW up­dates of­ten aren’t much to write home about, but Logic Pro 10.4.2 is a notable ex­cep­tion. Why?

THE ONE WE WANT (BUT CAN’T AF­FORD) The Moog One looks – and will prob­a­bly sound – gor­geous.
