In this issue, you'll find new articles (Music Marketing, Song Structure, Vocal Recording), new downloads (Vocoder, Sampler, Drum Replacer, Vocal Remover), new announcements (Vocal Trainer, Guitar DVD, iZtope RX, Advance Room Correction), new discussions (Orchestral Sounds, Studio Construction, Microphones), new music listings (New Age, Electronic, Rock, Jazz). And of course, we've got a brand new contest underway. Enjoy!

In the last issue, I gave a special thanks to all those who have posted nice reviews about my books over at Amazon. Since then, there have been some more great reviews about my Sonar 6 Power and Sonar 7 Power books, so additional thanks go to: Lance Martin, Ollie Garber, J.P. Spratt, Travis from the UK, G., D. Wilson, Louis Baldino, Richard Thomas Romanowski, Mixmkr, Wayne from KY USA, and Russ Darensbourg. If you have already purchased my Sonar 6 or Sonar 7 Power books and would like to post a nice review on Amazon, go to:

New users will start at the beginning and learn everything they need to know to use Sonar 7 for recording, editing, producing, mixing, and bringing their music to the masses. Upgraders will learn about all the new features in Sonar 7 as well as enhancements to existing features that may affect their current production workflow.

DFreqFINISH - New Year Resolutions

The end is here... that is, the end of 2007. Can you believe it? Where did the time go? I accomplished quite a bit in the past year - wrote a new book, spent time with family and friends, improved my fishing skills - but it's never really enough, right? I always wish there was time to do more. Oh, well... such is life.

For the next year, I have some special projects I'm excited about that I can't talk about yet, but I hope to complete them. I'm sure I'll be writing another book. And there are just too many things to list that I'd like to achieve in 2008.

How about you? What are your wishes for the next year? Drop by the DigiFreq Forums and share your thoughts for 2008:

Thanks and Happy New Year!
