Another year has flown by and voting is now open for the fourth annual SOS Awards for outstanding audio products. The SOS Editorial team have thought long and hard and drawn up a list of up to 14 nominations in each product categry. All you have to do is cast your vote for the product that has brought you the most joy over the past year.
The SOS reader‑voted categories are as follows: Audio Interface, DAW Software, Effects & Processing Hardware, Hardware Controller, Hardware Recorder, Headphones, Keyboard/Synth, Microphone, Mixer, Monitors, Plug‑in Effects, Plug‑in Processing, Preamp, Software Instrument, Sound Library, and Live Sound Product. In addition to these, there will also be one Editor’s Choice award, to be picked by the SOS editorial team.
Voting will take place throughout October and November at www.sosawards.com with the results being announced in time for the awards to be presented at Winter NAMM 2014.
