The August 2014 edition of digitalDrummer is live, with the most detailed examination of hybrid drumming.

On the gear front, we look at two benchmark hybrid products – Roland’s TM-2 trigger module and Aquarian inHEAD and onHEAD FSR-based trigger heads.

And the featured artist, Jon Farriss, was a hybrid pioneer who was at the absolute bleeding edge of technology when he combined acoustics and electronics to create the distinctive INXS sound.

Michael Schack, one of the modern exponents of hybrid, explains of the art and science.

And there’s the usual mix of product reviews, VST offerings, performance profiles and DIY advice in the latest issue of the world’s only dedicated publication for electronic percussion.
