We review the Sontronics Apollo 2 and RØDE NT-SF1 Soundfield microphones, Arturia’s feature-packed Audiofuse interface and Eventide’s Anthology XI plug-in bundle.

Top night with AMS Neve and PMC Speakers dealer SX Pro and over 30 guests at SX's Letchworth HQ last week. Highlight of the night – apart from all the food and booze(!) – was a hands-on mastering demo with leading mastering engineer Streaky. And yes, that's a PMC QB1-XBD system in the back there, £140k worth of kit... You should have heard Coldplay's Yellow playing back through it... ooh, the sibilance is a bit strong, isn't it Dale Chapman?! ... See MoreSee Less

Strongroom London – Recording Studio Vs. Property Developer
Strongroom are asking for support: you can help by writing an email or attend Hackney Town Hall meeting on Wednesday 12th#SAVESTRONGROOM UPDATE: Despite the incredible support of you fine folks, the press, and our legal team, the application for 118 Curtain Road will go to the Hackney Council Planning Sub-Committee for review next Wednesday, 12th December.

We're disappointed to learn that the Planning Officer overseeing this case has entirely ignored all of our concerns, and is recommending the committee grant the application. This is a heinous, reckless decision that would set the precedent for further similar large-scale redevelopments with no consideration of the serious impact to existing communities and industries. We absolutely cannot allow this to happen.

We received no notification for the submission of the application along our party wall, we were begrudgingly granted a site-visit to asses impact, only after threatening legal action, and have been forced to resort to public pressure and FOI requests to obtain any fair information on the status of this critical threat that is already affecting our operation. Our protests and inquiries have been met with silence, we have been undermined and ignored by both the applicants and the planning officer who is now recommending its approval.

However:

• There is still time to write objection letters to the sub-committee imploring them to throw this application out. Email planning@hackney.gov.uk and use case number 2018/0363 in the subject line. This MUST be done by Tuesday 11th at the latest.

• JOIN US at Hackney Town Hall to protest the application, and encourage the sub-committee to resist the rampant march of culture-washing and gentrification in our borough: www.facebook.com/events/1171193883005387/

• Please keep up the pressure, keep sharing, keep writing and get as many people you can down to Hackney Town Hall on Wednesday as you can. This directly affects Strongroom, but represents a wider issue spreading like wildfire across the country. It's time to make a stand: bit.ly/savesr
