As with every single year, the 2014 Musikmesse in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, has crept up on me again and Sonic State have just made me aware that the show is NEXT WEEK! Of course, with NAMM stealing the early 2014 thunder for product announcements, it's interesting to see what other new products are going to be announced.
In particular, with Bitwig confirmed to attend as exhibitors in their home country ahead of the final release date of the Bitwig DAW in two weeks, it's a good time for them to highlight new features of their software.
Judging from Sonic State, there's plenty of new product announcements from Arturia, Korg and Waldorf, so it's great to hear that there's more products coming out. Perhaps they have purposefully held back a lot of gear from NAMM to present here? Either way, it's good to stoke the rumour mill and I look forward to hearing the news next week!
