Is there a back issue of CM that I really ought to get if I get just one (mainly for the free software)?

Even the one with Dune CM would be great but I can't find it?
This isn't what you think.

I *think* (not 100% sure, more 80-ish %!) you buy any new issue and then in the online File Vault you'll have access to all the previous freebies released up to (and including) that issue...

Not all, but about 80% of them will be available.

Dune CM has been on all the issues since the release. Just get the latest issues, and you'll get all the CM Studio plugins. They sometimes also had exclusive one-time synth offerings, like Cakewalk's z3ta+, but, you won't be able to activate that anymore, because Cakewalk are out of the business anyway, and, they also obviously had a limited amount of serials available for the offering.

The current one (issue 257, July 2018) is titled Essential Freeware, so it's not only got a disc full of goodies, they give a guide on where you can get more.

The issue with BazilleCM, includes 20 videos for learning to
use it, making a nice intro for learning modular synths,
and prep for using the full Bazille someday.
And a goodly number of the full Bazille demo presets and sundry
donated presets will also partially load in the lite BazilleCM,
which itself comes with a nice assortment, around 250 so.
Cheers

If it's software you're after, definitely get the most recent issue. Thorn CM is great! And of course you'll also get the rest of the CM software suite, including Dune CM and Bazille CM.

Not quite - you do get the "CM plug-ins library" but not the one-off specials (unless they have been added to the cm library). Here's the library from cm253:

Issue#200 exclusively has Cakewalk Rapture, full version. Note it's old one, not later Rapture Pro. Still my favorite wavetable synth along with Z3ta+2.

sorry how do you access software from back issues please ?

I bought the latest CM digital version and can access Thorn CM via the filsilo vault - but any previous software given out like Brazille CM is "locked" in filesilo and you need words from the page of that particular issue ? Am I missing something ? From reading above it seemed you might be able to access anything from previous issues too ?

thanks

Just download, the "All software instruments" file in your current issue of CM and all previous synths will be there. Do the same with effects,

edit: the file is called "PC Instruments CM258" or "Mac instruments CM258"
