I subscribed to this. It was very cool. Lots of how-to articles and artist profiles (first I ever heard of Devo was there).

And then, they stopped arriving in my mailbox cry . I still miss it.

I have almost all of these in physical form. Lots of great schematics with lots of hard to find now parts (unfortunately). A true Electronic musician magazine - all synthesizers, all the time.
essex sound lab
I have them in storage somewhere. MAN this brings back memories.

That Fripp issue, in particular, was huge for me.
timcoster
I love these ... the Steve Hillage interview is pretty entertaining!

Does anyone have the first two issues scanned?
megaohm
Do any of you have issues that are not posted there yet?
I would love to see them if you do...
...and have the time to scan them in!

I don't pretend to speak for other musicians of the era but it was one of the most influential rags out and still retains it's importance to the history of EM during the digital transition days. I slobbered over every issue as they came in the mail. Beat the dust off of Cream or Rolling Stone which were moldy by then.

I've got the first two if anyone wants to scan em in the MA area. I was lucky enough to pick up the entire set off ebay the other week, all 14 iterations hyper

Synapse: What do you think of the new music, that´s coming out that´s called New Wave, or punk music?

Zappa: I think, it´s just a way for people, who can´t play to earn a living.

Synapse: Would you rather, that they be working on cars or---

Zappa: No, because considering the way they play, I wouldn´t want them working on my car;...

the fripp issue only links to the zappa issue content :(

Wow! Thanks for this - some great material - Eno, Fripp, Allen Strange - these were formative years for me. Fripp's "Exposure" I got at the now defunct Sounds, on St Marks, in NYC for $1.25 - best buck twenty five I ever spent! Played that thing to death.

Wow, takes me back, it's wild to think of how things have progressed yet remained relevant. woah

In case you've noticed that some of the TOCs are borked, you'll have to manually adjust the pic=xx parameter in the URL to get to the "missing" pages.

Patrick Gleeson's review of LEM's album, forget which issue it's in, but should be printed as a poster for the wall of every modular synth workspace...

Thanks for the offer. I'm in NY, and somewhat surprisingly none of the area libraries seem to have copies of the first two issues.

Anyone manage to scan the first two issues? It would be great to read those.
kingmaxwell
It's a wrap. I'm deep into the Kraftwork late seventies issue. Reading every page. Whoa. Ridiculous to read Tom Oberheim talk about synth voices in 1978. This is awesome.

I have issue #1 on loan to me. I'll try to scan it in the next weeks.

Did you manage to scan it? This *needs* to be online...!
umma gumma
is there supposed to be a link on this page, to read/download issues?

http://www.cyndustries.com/synapse/intro.cfm

if so, I do not see it

yeah!

thx Tom!

If anyone has issues #1 and #2, and is willing to scan them, or lend them to me for scanning, that would be very cool and a certain unique and very cool web archive would work to make them available in an accessible form in the future... thumbs up
GhostofAlgernon
It looks like I have .gif scans of:

Volume 2, Number 5 - March, 1978
Volume 3, Number 2 - summer 1979

Happy to send these to whomever if they're needed to complete an archive.

I actually think I have the entire archive of all of them somewhere on a disc, but it's not popped up yet. If I find it, I'll make the entire thing available to whomever wants it.

We talked about it before, I scanned it, and totally forgot! Here's the 2nd issue:
http://www.diophantine.net/synapse/Synapse_Magazine_Vol_1_No_2.pdf
(The last 8 pages are scans of a Bryce Robbley score printed on two folded large sheets and which were included with the magazine. Awkward to scan...)

EDIT: and yeah, it turned out to be #2, not #1... when loaned to me the owner thought it was #1, and it doesn't say so on the cover.
GhostofAlgernon
I have found one disc with scans of the following:

1976 Sept-Oct Vol 1#3
1976 Nov-Dec Vol 1#4
1977 Jan-Feb Vol 1#5
1977 Nov-Dec Vol 2 #3
1978 Jan-Feb Vol2 #4
1978 Mar-Apr Vol2 #5
1979 Jan-Feb Vol3 #1
1979 - Summer Vol3 #2


Includes front/back cover scans, plus each archive has .gif scans, plus largish .pct scans for each.


If anybody want these, message me and I'll send you a link to a Google Drive zip file...

Thanks for uploading these. Guinness ftw!

thanks to the uploaders. will keep an eye out for issue 1.

To update this thread - I've still not been able to get a response from Cynthia Webster or Doug Lynner yet, but in the meantime I've added a Synapse entry to document what we have and to try to source the outstanding issue #1.

http://www.muzines.co.uk/mags/sy/all

If we get the go ahead from someone from the original team one day, then I'll update the status and make them available, in both PDF form, and added to the publishing rotation as per the other mags.

In other news - we now have a *complete* PDF archive of Polyphony available to enjoy... thumbs up

hi y'all,

did some sleuthing to find synapse v1n1 and it looks like the David Tudor archive at the Getty has it. A researcher in LA with a good reason to see it should be able to get access.

All the best,

That Kraftwerk interview reminded me of Mike Myers' Dieter character.

Well, I am none of those things but hopefully someone will have a copy they can scan and make available at some point...
