Heh, I'd put that right on my testimonials page, if I had one! :thumbup:

Then go and create one straight away Desmond, and revel in the praise that will pour upon you :thumbup:

Another shiny vintage SOS from 1991 just went up, which you can read when you're done with today's shiny new SOS issue! ;)

The Analog Synths article has some rather lovely guide prices for those vintage analog synths nobody wanted back then (£500 for a CS80, anyone?)... and I was personally looking forward to the Pat Leonard interview, and it didn't disappoint.

Also, another milestone - this evening we also just crossed the 1 *million* article views milestone - that's real views (without robot traffic, and only views on articles, not other pages/searches etc).

So that's 1 million cool pieces of retro knowledge and nostalgia consumed by you lot since we started, all for the very reasonable price of free. Good deal! :thumbup:

Thanks to the fine folks that helped make this possible (credits in the About page).

Oh yes - a vintage copy of "Sound On Stage" #5 popped through my letterbox today (eBay), and Mike also has the first issue, so perhaps we might be looking to add that before too long...

I shall now return to radio silence, I only like to put occasional updates here from time to time when relevant or noteworthy...

I am becoming more and more convinced that Desmond is either an advanced AI or is actually some kind of collective. How else do you explain the breadth and depth of knowledge combined with the output? :clap: :clap: :clap:

Just finished off 2020 by uploading the final five issues of E&MM, which is now complete on the site.

Including content on: Fairlight Series II, PPG Realiser, Brian Eno, Talk Talk, Gary Numan, and much more synthy/sampley retro goodness!

I'll take a little content publishing break for a bit (but will still be working on content in the background as ever) - for the next batch of issues I will be working through the 1992 and 1993 years of Sound On Sound - 24 issues, through to completion - and many of those are *whoppers*!

ByeBye 2020 - (we won't miss you - sorry, not sorry) - let's hope things get better for '21...

Happy New, folks! :thumbup:

Thanks, Desmond. I have been enjoying the E&MMs as they have been put up. Some great content in there, gear review, interviews, projects... It’s a bit shocking when you think “I remember that issue...” but then, that’s part of what makes it fun (the nostalgia) as well as informative.

I look forward to checking out the most recent issues.

An amazing resource, thank you :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Yes, thank you Desmond, and very well done indeed. I've been enjoying the E&MMs -- I remember them from the first time around...
