So what's your favourite synth? Why do you love it? Is it that you know it inside out? Or can you quickly tweak a few choice parameters and tailor a sound in moments? Or do you love it because it's got a raft of great presets already on board? Or - even worse - do you have a synth that you've never used simply because the act of getting to know it feels less like making music and more like doing your maths homework? Well, we're here to help.

This month's Expert Synth Programming feature (and the accompanying audio examples) will show you the power that's inside the synths you already own, and give you the motivation to finally lock horns with them and make great new sounds. We're sure you'll like it.

Similarly inspiring are this month's pair of In The Studio With features, the first with the legendary Stereo MCs and the second with production dynamo Dom Kane whose numerous skills get shown off big style with almost two hour's worth of video included with this issue!
