Some mu:zines updates - the recent batch of SOS issues added takes us up to the end of 1988. So 1985-88 are now complete.

The next batch of issues in the queue will be Home Studio Recording to get that up to the end of 1984.

I've started a blog series doing a deep dive into the workflow and process I use to convert a print mag into it's online form on mu:zines, for those interested in what's involved.

Indeed!

I've just written a post about your SOS archives on our Facebook page, and it seems to be getting a very warm reception!

Many thanks Des,

A few little bits of news to relay here:-

Happy to say that we can officially add International Musician, The Mix, Making Music, One Two Testing and Micro Music to our archiving and republishing efforts - which gives us permissions now for *all* of the publications in our initial remit, just in time for our second birthday next month...

Thanks to everyone that helped make this possible - Tony Horkins, Chris Kempster, Tony Bacon, Paul Colbert, Adrian Walker, Brian Giddings, and Darrin Williamson... I'll now be including all publications in the processing/publishing rotation.

We've also got some good new mag donors lined up who will be helping fill holes in our collection, so we should hopefully be able to complete scanning of at least The Mix, One Two Testing and Micro Music over the next few months...

I know I keep repeating myself here... but this is a fantastically good and very much appreciated resource. 'They' said it couldn't be done, but you have proved them comprehensively wrong. All power to your digital elbows! :D

Thanks Desmond. To name a TV series - Absolutely Fabulous!

I was browsing through the old H&SR and E&MM kits/projects over the weekend. Happy days, when I used to dream of building a delay or chorus unit. :geek:

Muzines is an astounding resource for the global music community.
Well done! :clap:

Hmmm, someone needs to create an award, so that you can win it. :angel:

Happy Birthday to mu:zines - we reach the ripe old age of 2, today!

Blog: One... Two! Birthday time again!
http://www.muzines.co.uk/blog/one-two/24

I've also introduced a new feature - Ads! :thumbup:

No - not running advertising on the site - you can now search/filter for ads, both gear and vendor ads (eg "Soho Soundhouse").

This lets you run searches like:
- Show me all the Akai Sampler ads in the 80s
- Show me Yamaha Sequencer Ads
- Show me Akai MPC60 ads from Sound On Sound
- Show me Mixer ads
- Show me all "Keyboard Shop" adverts

To use this, go to the Gear + Ads page (http://www.muzines.co.uk/gear and flip the Ads menu to "Search Advertisements" and us the filter options exactly as for regular gear review searches.

Now, where's the cake..? :beamup:
