Another scorcher in the UK, we're all wilting here apart from  soundartist Mark Tinley who's got his headlights on in the basement, where it's nice and cool. In not so sunny Connecticut, Rich Hilton is with us before heading off to work in the studio with Nile Rodgers, Dave Spiers a founding father of GForce Software  also telecommutes in from GF HQ , Dave Robinson editor of ProSoundNewsEurope.com and  late comer Noneric catches us for the last 20 minutes from Berlin, where lives a particularly rock n roll lifestyle ;-).

Obviously, we can't do this show without a portion dedicated to one of the last Great Pop icons Michael Jackson - rather than dwell on his more eccentric side, we celebrate his music and offer a few choices for favourite MJ tracks. We then move on to the proliferation of music and technology education courses and what's missing or what it means, then another subject you just can't miss, well certainly not in the UK anyhow, was last weekends Glastonbury Festival which drew crowds of over 175,000 and boasted some of the biggest gigging names - which is what makes it officially the biggest festival in the World. Then its the UAD2 Solo PCIe card for some DSP action.

Also this week, in the quest for the perfect mic, Nick tries out the Røde Procaster, a dynamic mic with more than a nod to the looks of the classic ElectroVoice RE20, I do quite like the sound, particularly the noise rejection, it has a fairly tight cardioid pattern, but singificantly lower output than last weeks condenser. Thanks to SourceDistribution.co.uk for lending us this to check out.
