SONIC TALK 074 - Back in the groove after NAMM we're joined by Mark Tinley sound artist and long time collaborator with Nick Rhodes, Chic band member and Nile Rogers' main man Richard Hilton, PJ Tracy composer and man about Minneapolis, Dave Spiers from GForce Software - makers of fine software musical instruments. This week we talk of mergers and acquisitions, in the light of Roland taking a majority share in Cakewalk, Gibson and TC Electronic announcing a merger and of course Microsoft's bid for Yahoo, Helicon technology gets a look-in along the way, followed by Novation's Nocturn controller, Inside Synthesis, our latest IPTV series on FM synthesis and FM generally, then a bit of a Mac-fest with the new Airbook and Mainstage in use. Finally we finish up with Rich having good things to say about the new Apple keyboard - of the QWERTY kind. Remember...
