The Vault Edge DW/Sabian Snare Drum

Limited to 50 snares produced, John Good along with Sabian cymbals have worked together to produce an instrument like no other! Firstly, they started with the basic design of the now “Classic” Edge snare John Good developed in 1991 with great success. The idea behind the Edge snare was to bring together what, at the time, was two very different schools of thought, Wood vs Metal shelled...[Read More]

Midas Mixtender

Howdy ho everyone. As you may know (or not, it’s all good) I’m a large fan of Midas products. Midas could make soap, and I would buy it. But one thing that never impressed me is the app for the pro series consoles. Although it was useful, it wasn’t everything people wanted it to be. BUT OH BOY GUESS WHAT?! They came out with a Mixtender version 1.2. This time, you can have access...[Read More]

QSC KLA

Friends, family, engineers in dark dirty venues that barely see the light of day, I have hope for you. Some of know (or may not know) of the brand  QSC. These audio sleepers are starting to reinvent the way we see powered speakers. When I say powered speakers at my job, people immediately think of Mackie or Behringer, sometimes EV, but nothing like the QSC brand. The throw on the K10’s…...[Read More]

Sonor To Release New “Martini Kit”

It appears that the German percussion company is doing their take on the compact drum kit, however, the company is calling it “a new take on the cocktail kit”, which might not quite be correct, but it does look quite promising. And while it might not be a cocktail kit, it looks to be a great compact drum kit. The kit is made of Sonor‘s cross-laminated shells and fitted with Remo ...[Read More]

TC Electronic Finalizer Express

In the world of recording and producing music, there are many people just starting out who believe that mixing a song for their artist is the final step. Except there is one process at the very end that can seem small or unimportant to the untrained ear, but make a big difference to the everyday person listening to this brand new song: Mastering.

Raven MTi – DAW Multi-Touch Control

As a studying music producer, I work a lot with Pro Tools. Both in my classes, and on personal projects. But one big thing about using any DAW (Digital Audio Workstation), through a laptop or desktop computer, is that you have to use the mouse. Which over time can become easy and pain-free, but sometimes it just gets on your nerves when your pan knob just won’t do what you want it to. A few ...[Read More]

M-Audio Axiom Air 61 – The New Keyboard in the Highly Successful Axiom Series

They offer something for everyone, ranging from the budget Oxygen line, to the not-so-budget Axiom Pro line. Now there’s a new series of controllers in the M-Audio lineup, and it’s called the Axiom Air line. The 61 key version of the Axiom Air features the use of eight rotary di...[Read More]

The Worlds Best Selling Drum Kit Returns – Reintroducing The Pearl Export

There’s only one drum kit in the world that can claim the title of the world’s best selling drum kit, and that’s the Pearl Export. So why exactly did Pearl decide it would be a good idea to discontinue the kit back in 2007? We may never know, but they obviously realized how bad of an idea that was and have recently brought it back. Reintroducing the Pearl Export EXX series of dru...[Read More]

Fender Vintage Themed Mexican Stratocaster

Fender has been making their vintage themed guitars for a while now, but they’ve all been made in America. Because of that they also tend to cost a fair amount, which some of us simply can’t handle. But now, Fender has unveiled the Classic Series ’60’s Stratocaster. It’s about time. Mexican made Fender guitars have long been hailed as pretty close to the real thing, a...[Read More]

ROLI Seaboard

One Instrument that has caught my eye is the new ROLI Seaboard, a digital piano that promises to reinvent the way we play piano. While we can see that the ROLI Seaboard is clearly based around a keyboard layout, we can also see that it does not really look at all like a keyboard. So what makes the ROLI Seaboard so different? The ROLI Seaboard is made out of a layer of soft silicon, which is on top...[Read More]
