Make Better Music with Harmony Central | View Online | V17.12
 


Welcome to Make Better Music! We’re having lots of fun here at HC, and are already looking forward to attending the “Between the Waves” conference in Madison WI, Sweetwater’s ever-fabulous GearFest, and of course, the magnificent madness known as Summer NAMM.

This issue, Craig gets you started with a look at how to determine if your gear owns you (uh-oh!), followed by how to determine if your speaker needs a tweaker. Chris talks about connecting effects pedals, the differences between Dreadnought verses Concert acoustic guitars, and digs into the SuperMegaUltraGroovy Capo 3 app. Phil opens up the Paul Reed Smith Sonzera 50W amp, and Dendy looks at the honkin’ big Sabian Artisan Elite Hi Hats.

Guest Contributors David Phillips interviews Pink Floyd's drummer Nick Mason...and David Himes asks if you really are serious about “making it” (and more importantly, what that implies), and we have a 3 question survey for you: which DAW do you use, and would you recommend it to a friend?

Audiophile

They’re called fanatics—people who listen to their vinyl albums on vintage gear like Macintosh amplifiers, old KLH speakers, and turntables with Stanton cartridges. They swear it sounds better, which of course, can’t be true—right?
