Mad about music technology?

Audio issue 2 cover

Ever fancied inventing a completely new musical instrument? How about creating a perfect-sounding virtual replica of a classic instrument like a Fender Stratocaster guitar? What's microphone bleed and why does it mess up your recordings? More interesting still, how might some electronic engineering fix it for good? What is set to replace mp3 players, allowing you to remix your music collection yourself? Want to create a virtual Albert Hall or make music with fire? It's all possible.

What do all these have in common? They are all projects of researchers working in a branch of electronic engineering called audio engineering. If you are mad about music technology, then check out ee4fn's sister magazine Audio! and find out about what the researchers who have turned their music hobby into a career are up to. Music has never been so hot!
