Kemper Profiling Amplifier
Ever wish you could bring all of your beloved amps to a gig, without any risk of damage, and without a need for roadies? Amp profiling may succeed where amp modeling has let you down. Incredible stuff here!

Ibanez JBM100 Jake Bowen Signature Guitar
Hard rockers and shredders unite! You don't even have to be a fan of Periphery to love this unique solidbody.


Hofner Club 500/2 Club Fretless Custom Bass
You say you want a revolution? Get your hands on this classic beauty and let the fun begin.

Cort Jeff Berlin "The Rithimic" Bass
Fantastic signature instrument will make you rethink what you know about the brand.


Dave Smith Instruments Prophet 12
Hands down, this is easily one of the finest hybrid digital/analog synths ever made.

Dave Smith Instruments Pro 2
Who needs a twelve-voice polysynth when you have less? Huh? Sometimes, maybe less is more...

Casio Privia Pro PX-5S
At a glance, you'd think it's just another stage piano—and a good one at that! But as it turns out, the PX-5S is a pretty powerful synthesizer and ROMpler, too.

MOTU MIDI Express XT Patchbay
Need a MIDI patchbay to connect all of your synths, sound modules, and computer? Thank goodness the only company left making these devices does such a good job!

Samson SM10 Line Mixer
If you've got a keyboard rig, this fantastic mixer may be exactly what you need to handle all of those audio outputs.

Live Sound

Shure Beta 87a & 87c Microphones
Two microphones, nearly identical, but with very different results. Which one will benefit your vocalist?

Cerwin-Vega XD5 Desktop Speakers
& XD8s Subwoofer

Need a set of decent speakers and sub for your non-studio computer workspace? Most desktop computer speakers suck. These don't.


Waves Gold Plug-In Bundle
When it comes to tracking or mixing your next session, there's a reason all of the pros working in-the-box reach for the gold...


Arturia iSEM Synthesizer
Aturia does a great job recreating vintage synths, and this latest synth for iOS delivers the classic Oberheim SEM.

Listening To and Reading

Latest CD and Book Reviews
Great new musical releases from Winger, Paul Gilbert, Marco Minnemann, Udi Levy, In Flames, Rush, Fire Garden, and the essential book, Music 4.0, byBobby Owsinksi.


Check this space every week for additions!

The Not So Distant Past...


Eventide H9 Harmonizer
To call this multi-effects processor a pedal really doesn't quite do it justice.


Carvin PB5 Five-String Bass
Once again, Carvin built us an outstanding bass for review. If you crave a P-style bass but want to take things to the next level, you've got to check this one out.


Roland V-Comobo VR-09 and
RD-64 Digital Stage Piano

Roland unleashes a pair of keyboards designed to be all that the gigging musician on a budget needs.

Ultimate Support Apex AX-48 Pro
It's time to take a stand! Or, at leasttake a fresh look at revisions and updates to the classic stand you probably own at least one of already.

K&M Spider Pro
Can you stand the excitement? Two stand reviews in one month! We love having multiple options for our keyboard rigs, and this one's super cool!

Yamaha MOXF8 Workstation
Great Yamaha sounds and weighted piano action in a lightweight package that is affordable? How did they do that?


PreSonus Sceptre S8 CoAxial Monitor Speakers
Great sounding monitors with unique design may be just what your pro studio needs.


IK Multimedia iRig HD
The guitar interface for iOS devices that launched a revolution gets a major update to support the latest devices.
