Today we have a plethora of live mixers, digital and analogue, from the affordable to the super expensive. You can get them from under $100 or if you wish you can spend over $100,000. The Behringer X32 was a game changer and has sold thousands upon thousands of units since its launch in 2012. The 18 channel digital mixer, the Behringer XR18 costs only $448.00 USD, plus the cost of an iPad or tablet to control it. In light of this we are fascinated by Make Your Own Sound’s series on building your own digital console system, using your own hardware (Computer, Audio Interface & controller) and software (they recommend RML Labs SAC). Martin gives us a set of detailed and clear tutorials and we recommend this as a must watch series. Learn how to mix and match your favourite hardware, optimise your PC and get to grips with the SAC software.

Richard Hawley’s song Darlin is one of those songs that instantly grabs your attention. Partially because of his warm soothing dulcet tones and also the beautiful guitar and bass lines that transports you from the hustle and bustle of modern life and into a world where nothing really matters for 3 mins. It appears on the album Lowedges released in 2003.
We love the channel Once Upon A Synth and especially love this series wheee he makes a song using just one synth. Now in this day and age we tend to feel that we really need lots of gear and lots of plugins in order to make a record. Truth is that you can use just one synth or one plugin and create all the sounds you need. This video revolves around an analogue synth which is a lot more remarkable. So make your song with what you have already. Also subscribe to his channel as well.
For many years I ignored gimbals as I really had no use for them, having owned a DSLR camera and using the iPad Pro as an extra camera (with its large screen of course). That all changed at Christmas when I bought the Oppo Reno 5g phone and then on Valentine’s Day went and had a look at a gimbal and was blown away by the DJI Mobile 3. This thing is amazing and will make our smartphone film making and music videos look like the real deal. Click on the link and check it out. It is low cost and offers tremendous value for money.

Iggy Azalea is back with an explosive new single Savior and a controversial video full of religious symbols and imagery. The song is pretty decent and borrows from Lisa Stansfield’s hit “All Around The World”.
Counting Stars is a beautiful sounding Retrowave song by NINA.
NINA is a German Synthpop/Synthwave singer-songwriter now based in London. A classically trained singer, NINA has been described as Lana Del Rey meets Robyn.
For those of you who don’t know, Retrowave is a modern revival of 80s synth pop wonderfulness in all its glory including, bizarrely, some of its fashion. What I would say is that when you get a decent song in this genre, it sounds incredible.
Counting Stars is taken from the album Sleepwalking which you can pre-order from the link below
