How many mic’s are in your mic locker?
There are hundreds of microphones to choose from, and making that choice can be a difficult decision – will that mic suit my voice? Will it suit the female artist I’m recording tomorrow? Will it give me the tone I’m after for this particular recording?
The likely answer to these questions is ‘I don’t know’ – until you try it in session. That’s one reason why most studios will have a selection of microphones, and choose the one that works best for the particular task at hand.
Enter Antelope Audio microphone modelling technology…

The Korg Prologue is unique in that it's a flagship analogue synth with an open-source digital oscillator and effects section available for developers to add their own sounds. The first 3rd party oscillators have been release by DirtBoxSynth and sound very interesting!

So, you’ve got some pretty good studio monitors and you’ve treated your room the best you can, and you’re ready to get the perfect mix, right? Well, yes… if you know that your mix will sound as good when you take it out of your studio and play it on other systems. However, to do that you have to get used to the sound of your speakers in your particular room – and mix to that sound, hoping that it will then sound right on other systems.
Sonarworks Reference 4 software takes the guesswork out of monitoring by using advanced acoustic analysis techniques and applying corrective EQ at the end of your signal chain, countering any tonal imbalance caused by the speaker/room combination.

UPDATE December 2018 – Korg have released a new firmware update version 1.3 that improves tuning stability and speeds up tuning settling time.
Watch the video to find out how to update your Prologue.
The Prologue is Korg’s latest polyphonic synth, available in 8- and 16-voice models. It has analogue oscillators and filters, and also a digital ‘multi-engine’ oscillator and digital effects. It’s these last two aspects that Korg has made open-source, so programmers can get amongst the code and write their own. Sounds easy! It is… if you know C/C++ pretty well and are OK with having no technical support from Korg!

Every computer music setup needs a way of getting signals into and out of the computer, and to achieve this you really need to invest in an 'audio interface', often referred to as a “sound card”.
“But I have a headphone output and microphone input on my computer already. Why do I need a separate box to do the same thing?”

The use of software to record audio and create music has evolved over the last few decades to a point where the majority of studio work is now done with the aid of a computer. There are still a few people out there using “stand alone” multitrack recorders like the Tascam DP-series, and even a few are still recording to multi-track analogue tape, but the use of a computer has become the primary way of capturing and creating music.
