Uh no... and I can't find a link showing the current issue's cover on KB Mag's web site. Will it get me in trouble at work... like your avatar (not complaining or anything... definitely not)?
...Music can be used to stimulate mass emotion, while mathematics cannot; and musical incapacity is recognized (no doubt rightly) as mildly discreditable, whereas most people are so frightened of the name of mathematics that they are ready, quite unaffectedly, to exaggerate their own mathematical stupidity.

Yeah I saw it, strange. Gear is the star this month.
I'm not sure if you're being cynical or not, but still...
It's not unusual at all for gear to be on the cover. I remember various Moogs have been on the cover, and the Alesis Ion was on the cover years ago, and going back I think even an M1 was on the cover.
Tangentially, I really miss the 80s and 90s cover, which were really imaginative and compelling. My favorite was the extreme closeup of cracked keys on the cover of January 87. And the MIDI-Veins-hand for the sequencer edition of May (?) 87.
Ah, too bad print is dead. You'd think cool covers would be easier to come by in the era of digital editions and photoshop. Alas, publishing was more creative when it was harder to achieve.
