With MIDI adopted by most of the major manufacturers there is a sense of relief amongst musicians that at last different synthesizer makes and models are compatible with each other. This feeling is tempered by the problem which most of us face — what to do with all our non-MIDI equipment. Happily, a number of interfaces are now coming onto the market which will allow analogue equipment to link to digital. Prominent amongst these is the Zypher Digi-Atom 4800 (a full-scale review is to follow) which we are offering as the prize in this month's competition.

You may have noticed a few changes in this issue. Besides a change of layout, this month's cover features two synthesizers, the Korg Poly 800 and SCI Six-Trax, rather than the usual band or artist. Very few musicians can ever hope to own a Jupiter 8 never mind a CMI, and with this in mind we feel the 800 and Six-Trax deserve the cover for making professional features available at a semi-pro price.
