Latest review

First review round: 4.0 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

I first approached the CMJ editor in 2010 about a 25-year retrospective of the importance of the Systems Concepts Digital Synthesizer project at Stanford. It turned into two articles plus a review that were all published together in the Fall 2013 issue. One article discussed the architecture of the Synthesizer, one the research project surrounding it, and the review focused on some of the music composed using it. Thus, this was a very big project with lots of technical and historical details to get right, and it took years to complete. The CMJ editorial staff was superb throughout; very supportive, with many valuable suggestions, responsive to my concerns, balanced and light with their editorial pens. A very enjoyable experience. They have my highest respect.
