Sonic Control is to music what Fox is to news and sports. Sonic Control is the online webzine for musicians, composers, songwriters, recording and production enthusiasts. Our purpose is to bring the exciting world of music technology and related issues to the every day user with simple, easy-to-understand articles, reviews and video programming starting with Inside The Recording Studio.
All of our new reviews are written in plain English with as little “geek speak” as possible. Our forums are staffed by knowledgeable professionals who have no trouble answering the most basic questions without making you feel dumb for asking.
Launched in 1998, Sonic Control has grown at a rapid pace and has successfully become one of the most popular award-winning music information, review and community hub sites on the Internet. In late 2004, Sonic Control was purchased by Alexander University, Inc.
