About 1000 Tracks

Hello, and welcome to my website!

My name is Elena Stepanova. I am the editor-in-chief of the electronic periodical www.1000tracks.ru, journalist, sound producer, composer, and astist-researcher.

The scope of my professional career involves sound recording, electronic music production, writing about music technology history. I also have been teaching music production using audio + MIDI sequencers such as Apple Logic, Avid Pro Tools, and Steinberg Cubase.

I graduated from GMUEDI (State Musical College of Pop and Jazz Music, Moscow, Russia), with a diploma in Music Production and Sound Engineering, and later from SAE Institute (UK) where I studied for a MA in Creative Media Practice degree. My MA thesis dedicated to online music collaboration was written in English, and I have a Master Of Arts degree awarded by the Academic Council of SAE Institute/Middlesex University in December 2011. I am currently working on my Ph.D. dissertation (Musical Arts).

On this website you will find my articles dedicated to the following topics:

  • professional audio equipment news
  • audio recording, mixing and mastering
  • audio + MIDI sequencers
  • audio and video editing
  • history of music technology
  • music and musicians

My articles and translations were published in various printed media (In/Out Magazine, Light. Sound. News Magazine, Radio Magazine, Zvukorezhisser (Sound Engineer) Magazine, CyberTimes Magazine etc). I also write articles, news, and reviews specifically for this website.
