Over the next few months, you’ll notice changes in the pages of the magazine. Craig Anderton, who founded this magazine almost 30 years ago (back when it was called Polyphony, for those old enough to remember) and coined the term “electronic musician,” is embarking on a new career with Gibson Guitars. At the same time, we’re thrilled to welcome back former Electronic Musician Editor In Chief Gino Robair as Technical Editor, starting next month.

In this tiny magazine world, we’re all connected in some way: My first association with Craig was in back when I was in college, soldering together clunky versions of the filters and metronomes in his classic book Electronic Projects for Musicians…fast forward to 2010, when I joined him at EQ magazine, which ultimately became the new Electronic Musician.

In between those years, Gino and I spent more than a decade working side by side, him at EM and me at sister mag Mix. Gino, an accomplished musician with credits ranging from Tom Waits to Anthony Braxton, has contributed regularly to Guitar Player, Remix, Mix, and has already helped us shape the new Electronic Musician in many ways—including playing an instrumental role in our annual Editors' Choice Awards.

Fear not: This won’t be the last you see of Craig. “With Electronic Musician firmly established as the premier technology magazine, it seemed like a good time for a new adventure,” he says. “But I'll remain involved in an advisory capacity, and will keep writing my 'Craig's List' column. The magazine is in great hands with Sarah and Gino, close friends whose loyalty to Electronic Musician's readers is absolute. Besides, 'never say never'—Electronic Musician is part of my DNA."—Sarah Jones
