Missing past issues? Can't find an SOS article?

If you have reached this page it is most likely because you have tried to access a URL for an Sound On Sound article which has not yet been migrated from our old site.

  • On 15 June 2016 we launched this new website, which currently houses in excess of 8,585 articles plus news.
  • We are working hard to get the remaining issues brought over as fast as possible but this will take us time.

Past issues will be added one at a time to this new SOS site, until we reach January 1994, so please bear with us.

Web Archive

However, there is a partial solution - thanks to a wonderful non-profit organisation called Web Archive, who run a Wayback Machine service. This provides snapshots of the full SOS site as it used to be — meaning SOS articles not yet on this site can be found in Wayback's extensive web archives.

Once there, select the Month/Year and open the contents list. Clicking links to articles will open most of them.

Synth Secrets (May 1999 to July 2004)

Some 2004/2003 Synth Secrets are already on the SOS site, but all 63 parts of Gordon Reid's Synth Secrets series can be located on the Wayback Machine archive site - click here.
