I think it is a great idea to have recordings of the tutorial pieces on SoundCloud. My beef: they are never posted when the new issues arrive. I see an article I like, go to SoundCloud to hear it, and then realize that the latest content is from a prior month.
I could put a reminder in my calendar and go back a month or two later. But in this era when it just takes seconds to upload a recording, what advantage is there to anyone it to not have them available when the magazine is distributed?
