We’re used to dealing with changes to our music-making processes, and we’re always keen to explore how your studio time can be maximised by the advent of new gear or trends.
Nothing, however, has affected the world of music production (and the wider industry) quite like COVID-19, which has had a devastating effect on freelance and gig-based musicians and producers. The UK government enforced its mandatory lockdown as we were finalising this issue, shutting down pubs, clubs and more.
Though there’s obviously a lot of concern right now, there’s also some positivity to be found, as many of us have a great deal more time to spend
indoors, focusing on our tracks as we self-isolate. In our news section this month, we’ve rounded up some of the incredible free products that have been generously offered by big companies in the wake of the pandemic, and over the coming months we’ll bring you features that are designed to help you collaborate with others, self-release and broadcast your music via the internet.
Elsewhere in this issue, we speak to MPG’s Breakthrough Producer of the Year Marta Salogni about her incredible rise to prominence, as well as her
fusion of classic production techniques and DAWs. We also deconstruct the core elements of electronic dance music and explore how hand percussion can add rhythmic texture to your tracks. We’ve got our usual range of step-by-step tutorials across all the major DAWs, and reviews of the latest hardware and software, including Waves’ versatile OVox and Mammoth Audio’s stunning debut Density. 
Stay safe and enjoy this issue.
