They lost their readers. The people that complain here are not enough to run a full fledged magazine. Svetlana was brought in to save it from going under and that's what she did: she turned it around but changed it into an EDN type of industry publication. No more authors to pay, but industry designers writing in their employer's time and actually paying for advertising.

The sad thing is that diy people happily pay $ 50 for a boutique cap but not $ 10 for a magazine where they would actually learn something. The money is in the rip-offs and not in the education these days.

Edit: EW is of course still being published

But sadly the Geocities site for Cyril's Bateman's articles, designs and software is gone, apparently.
Several forum members, including D. Self have since tried to contact him.
Any news, even perhaps not so good. could be worth posting here.

I did a bit of googling and turned up These:

DIYCore.com - Home
http://techdoc.kvindesland.no/radio/...3155212518.pdf

Have now downloaded for later perusal

The first link has all of the EW capacitor sound articles in PDF (not scanned)

Doesn't help with where is Cyril, but does help anyone who wants to read the cap sound articles (updated from the original published ones by CB in 2003).

Tony.

My last contact with him was mid-December. I'll try to raise him.

Nice hunting there, Tony. The last time I searched I found a ref. only to the 1998 article and various posts on another UK forum about making personal contact.

The 2003 updates include the building of an absolutely amazing distortion meter to
measure very small effects. Full details and CD were available for the project.

Really, Jan. That's very encouraging news, I hope Doug Self was aware and followed up.

The trick was searching for the document name capsound6.pdf which was in one of the dead links to the geocities site (posted on another forum which turned up when I googled initially).

I have tracked stuff down using that strategy before.. searching on the author turns up nothing, but if you know what the document was called there is a reasonable chance it will turn up somewhere

thanks for the link-
Cyril Bateman ( note the spelling) wrote this to stop the voodoo about capacitors.
here are the complete series available as scanned PDF´s:
TechDoc

I suggest to download and keep for future reference, just in case.

This is a MUST READ for those who wish to really know about capacitors in audio circuits.
Best, analogbuff

Does the owner of this site have permission to distribute these documents? If not this would be another illegal file sharing site.

Until pretty recently Basteman was still selling some of his documentation for a fee.
