PreSonus Does a Successful Overhaul with Studio One 3 – Review

After its debut, Studio One started to stand out for its strong effects, straightforward interface and usage, and easy audio and MIDI editing. Of course, as anyone will find with a DAW, Studio One had its weaknesses – mainly, a dearth of virtual instruments – and it seems that PreSonus [...]

Serato Remote: All the Features You Know in Mobile Form

Apps specifically for DJing with an iPad have already been around for a few years. Algoriddim immediately comes to mind.

Native Instruments’ Maschine Studio: A Bunch of Features Right at Your Fingertips

Out for nearly five years now, Native Instruments’ Maschine has set a new industry standard as a hardware-software beat-production workstation. Its functionality bypasses Akia’s MPC, while serving as a high-quality studio hub (but not a full DAW) with built-in sequencing, sampling, and loop slicing.

Welcome DAW Newcomer: Bitwig Studio 1.0

In Search of a More Fluid Mix – A Review of Flow by Mixed In Key

UAD-2 Satellite DSP Accelerator Review: Vintage Sounds Paired With Modern Functionality

If music throughout the 2000's and 2010's – and that’s pop, rock, and EDM specifically – had any specific characteristic, it’s this strange affinity for the old.

One DJ Software to Rule Them All – A Review of The One DJ Software

Whether it’s iPad control, video playback functionality, or novel ways to launch samples, updates to the traditional format of DJ software have been few and far between in the past few years. When I first encountered The One DJ Software by Audio Artery at NAMM 2012, the project was still [...]
