J I bought this magazine steadily in the 90s, it was my favorite companion reading to the beach ...
I laminated some sound magazines before that, and found myself with the complete "home studio" when this song appeared.
The time to j liked having a specialized magazine for keyboards, and Mao's point of view "keyboard." Indeed, in the newsagents there drummer magazine, magazines for bassists, guitarists, but nothing for the keyboard ...
Merging home studio and keyboards has been catastrophic.
It's not that he does not remain some interesting items, but it feels a frenzy to reach all audiences with for example, which are of interest Mondomix little readers, I think, because there are other sources of information about it. The articles with home studios or large studios readers pros are a little "promo for the guys" and we do not learn much, apart from that this decidedly ssl is really too expensive considering the market conditions of the current disc ...
Anyway, I have stopped the purchase, having enough to find only a few pages about me.
A magazine for modern keyboards in my opinion should cover the following areas:
- Material stage and studio keyboard
- Material recording techniques and computer music
- Playing technique of arrangement of components or reading gate
- Technique of creating such analog synth sound
- Interview keyboards and pro builders.
Everything that relates to dj, guitarist etc. in my opinion is a little off topic. There are magazines for it.
finally some continue to do so as "keyboard mag" ...
The niche is too narrow in France? the keyboard in this country suffers a reputation as a classical pianist and quite distressing symptom of a lack of knowledge of music and a rather questionable taste, that are found by chance in most productions "majors" French .. .
A magazine which deserves to specialize in one area before it disappears completely that. The beautiful adventure with arturia Minibrute could be an opportunity for a homecoming but no ....
Mag a very uneven, in my sweet-fall for years, in terms of content.
His ancestor the years 80-90, Keyboards, was an expert on keyboards and the south in general. The tone was almost that of a fanzine community and it was a mine of information.
The current KR was born from the merger of Recording, excellent magazine on the home studio, whose quality was recognized by all editorial, Keyboards and had become, according to me, a kind of magazine to large audiences, such as "soft consensus "clutter with flashy taglines on the cover.
The current magazine is unfortunately more than Keyboards Recording! While some topics are very interesting (reports on the studios, topics of Dr. C, line hardware vintage, some monthly records ...) this magazine gives me the impression ESPECIALLY avoid going out of consensus! The flying test beds more subjects, sometimes showing little more than a long paraphrase of the data sheet. They always end on a positive note, and no product is ever "failed" (though there are occasionally!)
Wrongly or rightly, I do not feel really confident that I felt towards the opinion given by the magazine, and I have several times been a bit taken aback by the tone of benevolent SOME testbeds, where j ' I found the marketing unproven arguments yet remains unchanged in the editorial.
My general opinion is that this magazine through a "little extra push" for 2 or 3 years, and I really hope he will find the way of editorial courage in order to, among other things, to play its role as sentinel consumer service multinationals in the jungle!
