The page-turning browser version of SOUND ON SOUND, known as the REPLICA, was created during the pandemic lockdowns in 2020 to enable our global non-subscriber readers, who could not legally visit their local newsagent/bookstore, to continue reading their much-loved music techology 'source of truth' every month.

Tens of thousands of readers instantly signed up, and told SOS they loved reading the magazine this way (on large desktop monitors or tablets it's a great experience).

So we have chosen to continue offering this REPLICA — it's a great introduction to the magazine for newbies, anyone living in parts of the world where SOS is not sold in physical form. It also boosts coverage for our supportive Advertisers alike.
