We've launched a new section where we feature reviews of music software (mainly plugins, VST, VSTi, DX, DXi) every now and then. We'll usually provide sample mp3 files available for download so you can audition the software. We've also formed a section where all the contests and their respective winners are announced (participation to these giveaways is naturally free).
There's a stripped-down version of RockReviews now available for users with handheld computers (PDA) and mobile phones with web browsing capability. It's called Rough.RockReviews
For the most part, it has the same content as on the main site, though not all sections are included. Every CD and DVD review of music and music videos related to rock and metal can be found there, but software reviews aren't included (so be sure to continue visiting the main site as well).
