Due to an exceedingly generous grant from a one MR. LEONARD PINTH GARNELL, our fair magazine, EQ, finds itself in the wholly enviable position of being able to offer, for a limited time only a few NEVE consoles, a few SSLs, to your tastes, some G5s, about $500,000 of outboard gear, plus a dinner date with the editor of your choosing and the ability to conquer the very fabric of space and time, FREE with every subscription.
We know, we know: it’s this kind of selfless giving that makes EQ one of the cooler reads around. And for the meager price of a stamp and an investment in the ink and all the elbow grease it takes to scribble your name on a sheet of paper, you can also be the proud owner of The Cool Stuff.
Add to this about a month of master lessons from the estimable EDDIE KRAMER and you have a clear-cut situation of you staring at the calendar to make sure that you haven’t stumbled into an elaborate April Fool’s joke.
Which, of course, you have.
Coffee beans and nostril insertion charts included. No extra charge.
And when the laughter, stunned silence, or appalling shock slightly subsides a bit you’ll take stock of April in all the other ways we’re actually managing to play it.
To whit: With Williamsburg’s own masters of downtown cool, TV ON THE RADIO, and their stony take on making music make budget sense. The most muscular post-NAMM coverage around. MITCH GALLAGHER on latency issues galore, NEAL POGUE on the 10th anniversary of his award-winning hit and how he produced it, plus: reviews, reviews, and reviews of just about everything you could ever want reviewed.
