It's actually Polypony, a magazine for rich kids who have more than one small horse. ;)

Thanks, bear with me, probably something didn’t propagate...

Edit: Should be fixed now - sorry about that! :blush:

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.

Ooh - a magazine I've never heard of before that I can now read at my leisure 8-)

And it covers synth circuit mods :thumbup:

Bravo desmond! :clap:

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.
