The annual NAMM show has recently wrapped up in California, bringing the curtain down on the year’s most significant outpouring of new instruments and studio gear (hence this new issue’s bumper news section!)

With all this gear news, it can be easy to feel like your current setup is dated or inadequate, but it’s important to remember you don’t need the latest gear to make great music. It’s all about making the most of what you have. In a sense, that’s the heart of this issue’s resampling cover feature – learning how to take your existing material and create something new. Push your basic building blocks beyond what they once were to inspire new soundscapes and textures.

All print and digital readers can grab all of this issue's video and sample content from filesilo.co.uk/futuremusic
