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

MusicTech

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, March 24, 2020

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

Great mag and easy to read mobile version

This is a great way to read the mag and the new easy-to-read mobile version makes it even easier to read the content on your phone when out and about. Reviewed Monday, August 15, 2016

Xperia play

Very good, but needs to be a mobile edition, bigger text and what not. Also it would benefit from hardware controlls. But all in all very good and affordable. Reviewed Friday, November 23, 2012
