In this issue of MusicTech : It’s common for musicians to re-establish themselves as producers. After years of on-the-road toil and disputes over royalties, it’s no surprise that many seek a life of relative stability behind the desk. But career switches in the opposite direction aren’t something we encounter often. However, if there’s one man who can successfully make that transition from producer to artist, it’s Paul Epworth, the internationally renowned Grammy-winning mastermind behind the key works of Adele, Coldplay, Bloc Party, Florence and the Machine, and mountains more. In our interview this issue, Paul explains why now is the perfect time for him to embark on a solo foray into uncharted territories, and how he’s able to juggle that with being one of the world’s most celebrated and in-demand producers.
Also this issue, we bring together a range of room-correction software to run a group test, with the intention of learning just how much of an improvement they can actually make to your equipment and space. Elsewhere, we speak to Cardiff-based rock recordist Romesh Dodangoda, while Texas trio Khruangbin guide us through their rural recording process, and Harlem Shake architect Baauer gives a guided tour of his production HQ.
We also have our usual range of tutorials and guides. Lined up for the test bench this month, we have a deluge of instruments, software and tech from the likes of Polyend, PreSonus, Native Instruments and Kali Audio. We hope you enjoy this jam-packed issue.
