Welcome to Make Better Music! We've worked late into the night to bring you a very diverse edition with some fun included.

In this issue, Craig's List gets truly delusional and explains why cassettes were the best gosh darn playback medium ever! Craig also gives his feedback—and is surprised by its lack of the same...on the new IK iRig Acoustic Stage Miking System for acoustic guitar. Phil gets serious with his obsession about microphones, but more than redeems himself by explaining how you can create a home/project studio microphone cabinet that won't break the bank. He also does a deep dive into Gibson's Memphis ES-275 Figured hollowbody guitar, while Chris takes on Peavey's XR-AT Mixer with Auto-Tune, as well as Elixir's Optiweb Nickel-Plated electric guitar strings.

Guest contributor Matthew Mann gives a keyboardist’s perspective on the hot new ROLI Blocks, and Gearphoria's Blake Wright goes in search of the inside story on Nelson Instruments.
