If you pick up the new issue of Computer Music magazine this month, you’ll notice that something’s changed. In fact, quite a few things have changed, for CM has been completely redesigned.
The May 2008 issue (CM125) goes on sale in the UK on Wednesday April 09 and, as editor Ronan Macdonald explains, arrives with a distinct new look.
"CM's new visual direction brings a fresh, contemporary feel to every page, making the magazine easier on the eye and more accessible than ever. Computer Music has always been renowned for its cutting-edge design and layout – from the lavish cover artwork through to our oft-imitated walkthrough format – and with this redesign I can confidently say that it's never looked better."
The new issue contains an exhaustive guide to EQ, plus advice on launching a career as a producer/remixer for hire. You can learn how to adopt a ‘less is more’ approach to arranging, while there are reviews of (among others) Euphonix’s striking MC Mix controller, Digidesign’s Eleven guitar amp sim and Apple’s much-hyped MacBook Air.
Computer Music is available at all good newsagents and also at www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk.
