1. "Resolution" Magazine---from the UK--this successor to "Studio Sound" is the best
lasts for several months here


2. "Tape Op" Magazine----tattooed and unbathed, still it does a good job.
lasts for 1 month here


3. "Pro Audio Review" Magazine---at least they still measure equipment on the test bench.
lasts for 1 week here


All other commercial mags are read here in less than 15 minutes and then thrown away.

"Mix" Magazine lasts 8 minutes here before it is thrown in the trash.

That's about 3 minutes longer than it takes me.

Tape Op.

It can be a little discouraging reading the letters section and realizing how much misinformation and technical ignorance is out there -- but the magazine gives every sign of being created and written by people who love recording.

At one point I had subscriptions to just about all the main recording/music rags, Mix, EQ, EM, Keyboard, Guitar Player, even the can't-get-no-respect Recording (wasn't it called Home & Studio Recording back then?)

But I got tired of articles written by folks who were gaga over whatever supposed celeb they were interviewing. Or tech articles rife with tech mistakes. Or -- the worst -- celebrity home studios. Gawsh, I really, really hate celebrity home studio layouts in magazines.

I interchangeably subscribe to Computer Music and Future Music. Good reviews of equipment and a disk with videos of studios (Future Music) and interviews.

I used to have Sound on Sound, but I have lost trust in their reviews. They are far to positive in order to please their advertizers.

Tape-Op all the way. The Tape-Op books are a great read too.

Well..if that's what you're after. Those two are definite home studio fare....SOS is ok in places, although I don't find as much of interest as I used to, and actively disagree with some of the advice (maybe that's a good thing? shows I've learnt more). The relevant reviews to me (ie the ones that aren't for PCs, budget monitors or random weird hardware synths) are reasonably well written, but it's only one opinion as ever - and some reviewers are better than others.

Tape Op/Resolution are much more relevant to me (and personal too - anyone read the Mike Crossey interview in the current resolution? He told me he'd never do a mag interview....) and most of the time are on point.

We're pretty flattered over here at Tape Op by all the nice mentions.

"Tape Op, hands down. The editor is very oppinionated and somewhat preachy at times, but it's full of good stuff. The interview with T-Bone Burnett was from a couple issues ago is a must-read if you can find it. very cool stuff"

I'm not sure if being opinionated is a bad thing. It's how I like to run the mag.

"Somewhat preachy" I can understand I guess. Comes with the opinions. Hopefully it's in a positive way!

"I find it a bit heavy on the alternative music scene."

Really? Have you seen a recent issue? Must have been that stuff about Captain & Tennille or Jack Johnson.

Thanks again,
Larry Crane, editor Tape Op

PS: Someone mentioned that Audio Technology does reprints of Tape Op articles. AT is an excellent mag, but I don't recall these reprints ever happening. Am I wrong?
