In the US, it’s Thanksgiving today – a day when people reflect on the things that they are thankful for.
2011 has been a tough year in many ways. But it has been an interesting year in the world of music – with lots of new gear, software and music to be thankful for.
2011 has brought new synths in all price ranges, from $25 to $25,000. The year has seen fantastic new synths from major manufacturers and boutique manufacturers alike.
It’s also been a year with new electronic music applications and updates to many major DAWs. And 2011 has brought a new level of maturity to mobile music making, especially with developers collaborating to improve the state of iOS music making.
It’s been a good year for electronic music – but what I’m really thankful for is Synthtopia readers – for the time you spend on the site, the constant stream of feedback you leave, for your story suggestions, for the music you make, the gear you create and the apps that you write.
I hope that you have a great day, whether you celebrate Thanksgiving or not. And if you’ve got a moment, leave a comment and let us know what you’re thankful for this year!
