Excellent magazine. Always look forward to reading the latest issue Reviewed Thursday, 21 May 2020

Great Magazine please do more software content and some more freeware reviews. It's getting harder to pick the best of the Freeware VST and DAW lot. But could I ask that you do a Cakewalk by Bandlab review. One thing that gets me is that so much on what is in Cakewalk already is still only now coming to Studio One and other paid for DAW's. Yet you magazines avoid mentioning that. Please reach out to the Cakewalk Backers and write a really good review of a free product that quite honestly is fantastic. Reviewed Tuesday, 24 March 2020

As someone fairly new to "Electronic Music", DAW's, etc., I appreciate the articles, the reviews and the downloads. Reviewed Thursday, 27 February 2020
