Where Did This Crazy Site Come From?
Pro audio writer, editor and web publisher Steph Jorgl spent four and a half
years covering new developments in digital audio and writing in-the-studio pieces and
feature stories on top producers, composers, engineers and sound designers for both
www.apple.com and www.prosoundweb.com. The online pro audio feature content she
produced for tech giant Apple quickly drew to the tune of a million pageviews per
month, or 80% of the features traffic to the site.
||After witnessing the extreme draw of Jorgls self-generated music and audio
content, Apple subsequently developed and launched the iTunes Music store, bought
Emagic and developed and released several audio software products, including
Soundtrack and Garageband. And after regularly monitoring the traffic to her pro audio content, and
gathering a sizeable readership, Jorgl decided to launch her own features-based
online audio magazine, at AUDIOHEAD.net.
Within six weeks after launching with coverage of Winter NAMM 2004, Audiohead.net drew over 600,000 pageviews and a sizeable mailing list of Audiohead.net Sound Junkies. Electronic
Musician magazine then cited Audiohead.net as a key resource for audio online in
its September 2004 issue. In addition to the Audiohead.net site, Jorgl regularly
contributes cover stories and content to Digizine and EQ Magazine and helped out as Technology Editor for the
launch of Harris Publications Scratch
Magazine in Spring 2004.
I Did It For The Audio!
Audiohead.net strives to deliver insightful biographies, in-the-studio pieces, audio event coverage, tech tips and tricks, and unbiased, self-hosted product reviews
and spec sheets that give the reader the straight dope, in a non-salesy,
digestible way. This magazine is designed for audiophiles of all types
from laptop rockers to full-blown pro audio producers, remixers and composers.
Audiohead.net launched in January 2004, featuring coverage of the
Winter NAMM conference, updated interviews from the archives, new
interviews and features, and over 100 pages of original product reviews and
features on how to use these things in your studio.
Badass Audio Contributors
Audiohead.net has also
enlisted some great contributors, including guitar tech genius Andres Torres (Queens of the Stone Age, P.O.D.), Richard Devine
(Architect of Aural Mayhem), and Dave Hill Jr.(audio app genius and author of Live 2 Power!), who are contributing their respective expertise to
the Tech Tips and section.
Audiohead.net would love to hear your
ideas for future content, including any tips and tricks you might have up your
sleeve for audio and sound slingin. If our technical editing team feels the
tricks are both valid and compelling, well post them in a special section
within Tech Tips called Readers Tips and Tricks.
