Polyphony Archive now complete

Postby desmond » Tue Mar 26, 2019 10:42 am

We launched our Polyphony archive just over a week ago, and the collection is now *complete* - all 45 issues have been sourced, scanned, and PDF'd for your enjoyment.

Thanks to Mike G, Vesa L, and RetroSynthAds for filling the holes!

We will be OCR'ing Polyphony as per the rest of the mags on a rotation basis to be fully searchable etc over time, but you can download the PDF's now if you wish.

Surprised you weren't aware of it, it's kind of legendary in certain circles!

I've also added another one - "Synapse"
http://www.muzines.co.uk/mags/sy/all

I haven't managed to hear back from anyone regarding permissions yet, so for now I won't be adding any content (but issues #3 to #12 were posted online by the founder a few years ago and are already around on the internet if you look around).

We've sourced issue #2 and are still looking for issue #1...

I don't know how I didn't see this sooner, had a little browse through the SOS issue from the month I was born, really interesting (at least for someone as boring as myself!).

Great work, thanks!

OH! The unintended callousness of youth. So many of the regulars here remember buying the 1st issue of SOS as an adult. The bubble has been burst, we can't pretend we're 30 somethings anymore.

Craig Anderton was the Editor of Polyphony, I recall, and it became Electronic Musician magazine, which Craig edited for many moons.

Yep - well, Marvin Jones was the founding editor, but Craig took over from him during the run, and then Polyphony eventually became EM.

I have the first two EM issues still produced by Polyphony Publishing - in content, they are still very much Polyphony, but due to the name change and potential rights issues surrounding it (EM is still a going concern), decided to not include them in the Polyphony archive, unless Craig would have said it was ok to do so.

I tried a few times to contact Craig to let him know about our plans to do the Polyphony archive, but he's a busy chap and all...

if you felt like it, you could do a spot of Wikipedia editing - eg the current entry for Synapse includes a link to "Read...issues in their entirety", but all the subsequent issue links in that old archive are broken.

That’s because the issues were originally posted at Cyndustries, but the site went offline and when it was rebuilt, the issues were never reposted.

As we don’t have any official permissions to provide the content yet, there’s not much point in making much effort to point people to mu:zines, for now...

But yes, many old links out there are broken, including blog articles and so on...
