In typical fashion, Apple not only announced Logic Pro X in July, but it also released the software on the very same day.

Our agenda also included Songwriting week, which included our countdown of the 56 greatest songwriters of all time (based on your votes) and a list of 40 ways to write better songs.

In fact, July was marked by lists, as we also briefed you on the best valve combo amps in the world today. Drum fans, meanwhile, we treated to a rundown of the 20 greatest drum beats of the millennium, which was actually only 13-and-a-half years, but sounded a lot longer.
