Beat magazine, a well-known music production magazine from Germany, is now also available in English. Also, the latest edition of Beat magazine includes a free copy of the Waves Element 2 synthesizer and T-RackS ONE.
As of June 2020, the online edition of Beat magazine is also available in the English language. The English edition is priced at €4,99, and it includes all the DVD contents and downloads that come with the German edition. For the latest issue, this means that the readers will receive a free copy of the Waves Element 2 synthesizer, T-RackS ONE by IK Multimedia, as well as the Thorn BE synthesizer by Dmitry Sches. The magazine also includes free sample content and additional software downloads.
Apart from the software and soundware content, the latest issue of Beat magazine covers various music production topics and news. It includes an “in the studio” feature with Alex Niggemann and an “on the decks” feature with Simina Grigoriu, as well as an in-depth look at SuperBooth20 (which was still held online despite the main event being canceled).
Taking a closer look at the bundled software, for the price of the magazine, you are getting two fantastic virtual instruments (Waves Element 2 and Thorn BE), as well as a mastering plugin by IK Multimedia (T-RackS ONE). If you’re looking for a powerful virtual analog synthesizer for your studio setup, Waves Element 2 is definitely worth the download. It features high-resolution oscillators, zero-delay feedback filters, as well as an advanced 16-step sequencer for pattern creation and deep modulation.
The link to the bundled software and sample content is available on page 11 of the magazine. It will take you to a page where you can access all the downloads from the DVD. Some licenses (such as plugins) will need to be activated. Here’s how it works:
