Thanks for clarifying.

The articles all look interesting and useful. Congratulations on 
bringing together such a broad range of contributors.

The only one that sticks out is the Ableton article but if they are 
making the effort to contribute and not just attempting to spread their 
brand in every location possible then it seems reasonable to include it.

The description doesn't give me the impression tthough. It does look 
suspiciously like advertising to me. If that is not the intention then 
you may want to adjust the wording slightly.
