I would say in its own way SoS magazine has had an impact upon musicians all around the World.

There's a saying, if you could leave the World a little better than you found it, I would say SoS magazine it's staff it's writers have done this.

I'm very proud to have been involved on both sides of those hallowed pages.

Well done SOS - the ship has been steered well.

Thankfully non-essential.

Respect to all creators and loyal supporters.

Thankfully, indeed. What I should have said is that my keyring is significantly more populated than it was when I first picked up a copy of SOS :lol:

Thanks a lot.

Congratulations, and thank you! :thumbup:

Partly responsible for a fair number of purchases over the years, but at least they're all good ones...

My first SoS purchase from WHSmiths had one of my Synth heroes on the cover.

I recall circling all the gear I wanted but didn't have money for. The fun was in circling what I wanted.

Dreaming about all the gear I saw on SoS, then hopping along to local music shop in Kent to see which they had in stock. I miss those local music shops.

Since then, from 2k onwards, nearly every modern music gear I have purchased, I search SoS magazine and database to read whether it's been reviewed. SoS forums too.
Any gear that catches my fancy that others have reviewed I check to see what SoS thinks of this gear.

If I recall correctly Yammy SY85 was on a front cover, thereafter a few years later I purchased SY85.
I just purchased an Audient ID4 because of SoS views of it.

When I had very little idea of computer music 2002, SoS magazine articles, forums, came to the rescue.

I also like reading SoS for articles on diverse range of music from all around the World.

I can’t remember how I came across SOS, my usual magazine was always Home & Studio Recording, I actually bought things on the basis of its reviews, I can remember, an Alesis 1622, and a Midiverb 11, I only bought the magazine for something to read in my shop when I was bored.
After that I started buying SOS when my wife left me, I grabbed it furiously from Sainsbury’s, anything to take my mind off of chucking myself under a bus.
I can’t rember buying anything based on an SOS review, but the depth and knowledge of the reviews was always a guiding factor.
I used to be all over the readers ads, my favourite bit, it was great when they were printed in the magazine.

35 years! Amazing. I think my first copies were back in '90/'91 when I was looking for a 'keyboard' and was browsing SoS along with stuff like Music Technology and H&SR – I remember specifically looking at the JD800 and SY22 (only one of which was anywhere near my paltry post-college budget) and ended up with a Juno 6 (still here). But those magazines got me through lunch breaks on the crappy Sat'dy job.

Cheers!
