On May 1, 2018, Shure announced that they would no longer be manufacturing needles including their coveted M-447, which is the only need I've ever really used in my career. It's a sad day, but as we all know nothing stays the same forever.
I've been an Ableton whore since circa 2013 and I'm very much so looking forward to this event. More info below.
A Summit for Music Makers
Los Angeles, 9–11 November 2018
Ticket registration opens June 13. Sign up for updates
Coming to Los Angeles this fall, Loop is three days of talks, performances and hands-on workshops aimed at sharing ideas on music, technology and creative practice. Bringing together artists, technologists, educators and other creative thinkers, Loop is an exploration of what it is to make music today and what it could be tomorrow.
This year the program will be spread across a selection of neighboring venues in Hollywood. Confirmed locations include EastWest Studios, a legendary facility where the sound of popular music has been defined and reinvented many times over, and the Montalbán, a century-old theatre that’s now a community hub for aspiring artists.
I had some fun with this one. Play, share, repeat.
