Another great reason to get Computer Music magazine is the CM-505.
‘The CM-505 is a 24 note-polyphonic VST drum synthesizer. The instrument is designed specifically for creating synthetic drum sounds; no samples are used to create its sounds, not even a single cycle. The sounds created by the CM-505 have their roots in classic analogue drum machines. Although the CM-505 can replicate many of the sounds of these classic analogue drum machines, it also extends them into new sonic territory.’
The CM-505 comes bundled with loads of other free vst plugins on the disc that comes free with Computer Music every month.
Also the articles, reviews and tutorials make the magazoine worth it’s cover price alone.
The DVD disc crammed with lot’s of music making goodies just makes the magazine a great buy.
