    Music magazines worth to read?

    Hello,

    I wonder what magazines (or, webzines) in the USA and abroad are the best resource for professional music creation (considering film, game and media production)?

    In my country, the Czech republic, there is only one publisher worth to consider in the industry - Muzikus.

    So, what are your tips on leaders worldwide? What magazines do you regularly read?

    I have had a subscription to Electronic Musician magazine (http://www.emusician.com) since the very first issue.

    It covers a wide variety of music subjects and does it very well.

    Hey Larry, do you remember when it was called "Synapse"?

    I thought it was called Polyphony.

    In the UK there are Computer Music and Future Music, as well as some others.

    They run a combined website / forum (along with other music magazines) called MusicRadar where articles and things from the magazines are shown. This may not be the type of music you are looking for, but at least you can see in advance what the mags are like

    I've learned a lot about many aspects of recording and rendering,
    classic equipment and plug-ins from Sound On Sound magazine in the UK.
    You can check them out at their website here: http://www.soundonsound.com/
    and they offer both paper and e-zine subscriptions.

    Petr:

    Electronic Musician is a good music magazine that I have
    subscribed to in the past, but now I subscribe to "Keyboard."
    It is mostly for keyboardists, but it is well-rounded in its
    scope and carries the same advertisements for game, live,
    media, and film equipment as other music magazines do.

    Keyboard also contains write-ups of successful musicians
    and the equipment they use.

    You might like to compare these magazines on line if that is
    possible.

    They've had some problems lately but once this gets up and running:

    http://www.virtualinstrumentsmag.com/.

    it's full of useful stuff. The back issues (in PDF form) are well worth reading.

    Also:

    http://www.emusician.com

    and less so:

    MIx Magazine (I only take it 'cause it's free)
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    I also get a subscription to Electronic Musician. There online magazine has a lot of nice soundbytes and examples to learn from.

    Mix Magazine is excellent too. I subscribe but it won't help much in music creativity. It is more for the engineer and studio techs. However, for learning about mic placement, aux equipment, mixers and how to engineer the product, this magazine cannot be beat.
