Thanks! The SOS Team worked very hard to produce it, and it's always good to have the ducks line up in a row to create a balanced vibrant issue that's got something for everyone in it.

I especially loved the Recording Music Videos For Social Media article, by this Forum's very own blinddrew.

I couldn't agree more. Furthermore it's also an issue that resonates with me on a synchronicity front.

When I began my previous subscription a year ago (the one that just expired) I asked the subs department not to send me the paper copy even though I was entitled to it as I really like the PDFs and I'm vaguely mindful of the environment.

A month in advance, I renewed my subscription a couple of months ago without thinking anything of it. When Ian posted the link to the Arturia PolyBrute a day or two back, which I'm overjoyed about and pre-ordered immediately, I still thought nothing of it.

Then, this morning a shiny paper copy of the mag arrives, the first paper copy I've had for a long time, and it's got the Arturia PolyBrute on the cover and that very review is of course a major feature, along with all the other stuff you mention. This is an issue I really would have liked the paper copy of and... boom, there it is sitting on the desk in front of me.

So on this event the stars have aligned rather nicely for me and once again I find myself nodding to the universe in appreciation for a little unexpected pick-me-up moment :)

Not picked up my copy yet but looking forward to.. Vince Clarke, Jarvis Cocker, Arturia, Nord W2....and the usual suspects....

Recording Music Videos For Social Media - loved it (digitally so far).

Cheers Martin, hoping my paper copy will make its way up to the great white north later this week. :)

Nicely timed article for us because my wife Anne and her band are working up to making a music video right now so I'm going to pass a copy of it to her. I can also attest that seeing your name on an SOS article is a genuine gas :)

I thought it was blinddrew, but wasn’t entirely sure, but I agree I thought it was an extremely useful article and clearly written. I’m impressed! Well done.

I have to remind myself how brilliant all the components of the magazine are. I get so used to the high standards month after month and year after year that it’s easy to lose sight of how much hard work must be going into each issue.
Bravo all!
