Resolution releases early issues

Posted on: Tuesday 14th of August 2018

resolution_the_early_yearsThe publisher of Resolution magazine, S2 Publications, has made the first five issues of the acclaimed pro-audio magazine available online and downloadable, for free.

Resolution as first published in May 2002, with a cover image of producer Oskar Paul (Óskar Páll Sveinsson) standing in Strongroom Studio, features on AES47 and Sony Music Studios Tokyo, and reviews of Merging’s Pyramix 4, the AKG C451B mic, and the Steinberg Houston controller(!).

Five editions were made available that year, before the title settled into its familiar eight-print-editions-a-year format.

Now, for the first time, those early magazines are accessible and downloadable, for free.

“For more than 15 years, the writers of Resolution have brought you definitive reviews, insightful interviews, and bucketloads of tricky techie audio stuff you just wouldn’t find elsewhere,” says publisher Dave Robinson. “We thought it was about time we opened up the archive and shared Resolution’s experience, in that ‘online turning page’ format that is now commonplace.

“Now readers can take a peek at what we thought in 2002, see what technology and brands made it through to the present day, and, in some cases, do a ‘then-and-now’ with hairlines and waistlines.

Further archive material will be added over the coming weeks and months.

“Of course, while we celebrate the title’s rich history, we’re keen to encourage pro-audio practitioners to subscribe to the free fortnightly newsletter, as well as to the core magazine, be it as a print or a digital subscription.”
