Make Better Music with Harmony Central | View Online | V16.17
 
From the Editor's Desk


Welcome to “Make Better Music.” In this edition, our friends at Gearphoria go inside the "dairy" with Milkman Sound, while Chris Loeffler goes into overdrive with Earthquaker Devices' Gray Channel Overdrive Pedal. Craig Anderton checks out Audified's MixChecker to get a sneak preview of the violence his masters will have to endure, but also writes how to get crazy "modeling" guitar feedback with a keyboard...what? Phil O'Keefe gets to the CORE and asks if it's Manley enough, as well as finds out whether the buzz around Epiphone's Masterbilt Century DeLuxe Classic is justified. What's more, Harmony Central community member and drummer Carmine Strollo tries to "SHU" a bass drum. You won't want to miss any of this!

But while it’s true that technology has come a long, long way since the glory days of Queen’s Mercury era, people have been talking about "music losing its soul to technology" ever since we stopped using bones to hit things...but do they actually have a point? Of course not, and here's why.
