Often in FM, we like to go as deep as possible into a subject, exploring the whats, hows and whys and picking a theme apart from start to finish. 

That’s not what this issue is all about though. This issue is about Studio Hacks, aka helpful little things – quick tips, ideas and hacks that can help make your music making life better straight away. We’ve rounded up some of our favourite pieces of short, to-the-point advice on matters ranging from sound design to mixing to studio workflow. They might not revolutionise your music making individually, but we hope they’ll have the cumulative effect of making your day-to-day creative process feel instantly improved.
