Magazine issues we don't have
While we have completed collections of a few publications, there are many issues that we don't yet have.
If you have any issues we are missing, then you can send them in the post to us for scanning.
If you need the mag back when we're done, that's no problem, just include an SAE and we'll pop it back in the post as soon as it's scanned.
If you have access to a scanner (ideally, an A3 scanner for best results) and are happy to scan your issues for us, then all the better!

There are other magazines we are also collecting, such as International Musician, Making Music, Electronic Soundmaker, One Two Testing, The Mix, Music UK and others, as we aim to build up as complete an archive of UK music production magazines as we can.
We don't yet have permissions to publish this material, but efforts are ongoing to source the current rights owners to enable this. This is often quite tricky as publishers and magazines often change ownership in a myriad of ways!
In the meantime, we will still try to obtain issues - so we still want this stuff!
Don't have any issues we need?
Issues come up for sale from time to time, particularly on ebay. If you want to help contribute, you could
consider buying an issue or two that we need, and either scan them youself, or send them to us for scanning. That would be super-awesome - we've already
bought a bunch of magazines on ebay for the site, but we unfortunately can't get everything we'd like.
You may not have any issues we need, but you could consider donating some money - this will go towards site running costs, and would also be used to purchase additional magazines where we can, or additional assets such as a faster scanner or other things to help get content online more easily.
Ok I can help - what do I need to do?
Start with the form above to tell us what you plan to donate - we really appreciate it, and with your help we can hopefully end up with complete collections of all this stuff.
