Missing past issues? Can't find an Sound On Sound article?
- On 15 June 2016 we launched this current incarnation of the SOS web site, which currently hosts 12,563 independent, high quality, in-depth test reviews / techniques / interviews and tutorials — plus News and SOS Forum posts.
- On 11 December 2020 we added over 500 past issue articles. We are working hard to get the remaining issues converted into the new site format but this can only be done in main magazine/website production 'downtime' and it is a long-winded, convoluted process and we apologise for the delay.
Past issues are generally being added one edition at a time to this SOS site, in reverse order, until we get back to January 1994 — although we have recently been adding individual articles and still-relevant/useful series from older issues, when requested.
Thanks go to a wonderful non-profit organisation called Web.Archive.org, who run their Wayback Machine service that catalogues billions of web pages daily from all web sites. This means it has captured snapshots of the full SOS legacy site, as it used to be — meaning SOS articles not yet on our own site can still be found in Wayback's extensive web archived pages.
We have catalogued the SOS missing articles from January 1994 to December 2001 and built two indexes: one by issue and one listing all articles. Clicking article links on these Index pages will open the legacy site article on Wayback Machine.
