Watch video trailer for the new issue

Our cover feature this month is an in-depth review of Apple’s freshly updated Logic Pro X. It’s been a long time coming, but there are new instruments, a new virtual drummer, new audio and MIDI effects, and built-in Melodyne-style pitch correction. Apple have made their flagship DAW easier to use, but have they compromised the powerful features that professional users depend on? Find out in our in-depth review.

It's a DAW feast this month, with a review of Avid's new Pro Tools 11 as well, which offers offline bounce for the first time. We also bring you a review of Novation's Bass Station II, and ask what the attractively-priced synth has to offer and whether it lives up to the reputation of its predecessor. There are also reviews of Slate Digital's highly anticipated Virtual Bus Compressors plug-in bundle and Behringer's ADA8200, an update to their enormously popular eight-channel ADAT expander, now featuring Midas preamps.

Our crack team of reviewers have been working around the clock to bring you masses of product reviews from the likes of Gyraf Audio, MXL, Lindell Audio, AMS Neve, MOTU, Fostex, Propellerhead, Focusrite and TC Electronic.

We have an intriguing feature on Erkki Kurenniemi, a Finnish visionary who was building digital polyphonic synthesisers years before the Minimoog appeared - some of which, were controlled by brainwaves! While our Classic Track this month is ELO's 'Don't Bring Me Down'

Rapper J Cole and producer Juro 'Mez' Davis talk to us about recording Born Sinner in this month's interview, and in our Inside Track feature, we catch up with Duncan Mills who worked with Jamie Cullum to leave behind jazz standards and craft a more experimental sound.

In Spotlight we turn our attention to the stage and examine what’s out there in terms of Personal Monitor Mixers for live musicians.

As always, we have the best technique columns our there, including an article on Gain Staging, as well as workshops for the top DAWs, Mix Rescue and the Mix Review.
