SOS May 2014 is now available!

EZDrummer 2 reviewed, Pharrell's 'Happy' and win UA Apollo setup...

This month we have EZDrummer 2 gracing the cover, the follow up to Toontrack’s best-selling EZ Drummer software. It adds loads of new functionality, but is it still just as easy to use?

We bring you reviews of the Nord Drum 2 and Nord Pad 6, Moog’s Minifooger stompboxes, the Warm Audio WA76, the affordable SE Electronics Magneto back-electret condenser mic, SSL’s Sigma analogue summing mixer with software remote control, Elektron’s Analog Keys synth, the Roland VT3 vocal effects processor and SPL Crimson audio interface and monitor controller. We’ve also got reviews of new gear from Yamaha, Tracktion, Audio-Technica, U-he, Mackie, Genelec, Kurzweil, Electro-Harmonix, Sonoma Wire Works and IK Multimedia.

In the Inside Track feature this month, we look at the biggest hit of 2014 — ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams and talk to mix engineer Leslie Brathwaite. Then in Classic Tracks, we find out the story behind the Blues Brothers’ classic ‘Everybody Needs Somebody To Love’.

In the May 2014 issue of SOS, we’re giving away a Universal Audio Apollo Quad audio interface with built-in DSP along with all 65 UAD2 plug-ins that are currently available. That’ a prize worth worth an astonishing £9000/$14,000!

On top of all that, we have regulars such as The Mix Review (Disclosure, Tom Odell, Bonnie Raitt), DAW workshops, Notes From The Deadline, Studio File and Spotlight, which this month rounds up modern single-driver monitors inspired by the Auratone 5C.
