Welcome to the August/September issue of Audio Media. This month we’re discovering the latest trends and technologies in our audio for broadcast guide.
The International Guide to Broadcast Audio starts on page 15, with its IBC Preview including some tips on making the most of your trip. With the show looking to be bigger and busier than ever we’ve enlisted IBC Daily correspondent Will Strauss to highlight some of the major trends on the show floor.
Also in the August/September issue we ask if composers are increasingly relying on in-the-box solutions; we visit Chale Abbey Studios, the latest addition to the Isle of Wight’s thriving music scene; and maestro Garry Schyman talks BioShock Infinite, Game Music Connect, and more.
With each new release digital audio workstations become more powerful, intuitive, and creative – which is why this month’s Technology Focus draws attention to DAWs and DAW controllers with an Expert Witness from Nick Mitchell, a KMR Audio product consultant and freelance engineer and producer.
As always, the August/September issue is loaded full of real world reviews and this month our trusted band of reviewers took on the Dynaudio BM Compact mkIII small-format near-field monitor, the RME Fireface 802 USB and FireWire audio interface, Slate Pro Audio’s Raven 2.0 update for its Raven multi-touch virtual consoles, and the TSL Products SoundField SPS200 software controlled microphone.
