Help me with my thesis by answering to a survey and you can WIN an OEKSOUND plugin of your choice!

Hi everyone!

I’m doing a survey for my thesis on audio plug-in users, and I would highly appreciate the help and opinions of the community! By answering this survey, you are also helping to develop customer centricity in the audio plug-in industry.

Plugin company oeksound has provided me with a prize to draw among the participants of the survey, so you have a chance to win an awesome oeksound plugin as well! The winner of the draw can choose which oeksound plugin they want: soothe2 or spiff.

Answering the survey takes about 5 minutes. Each and every answer is valuable for the success of the survey. Please answer by June 15th, 2021.

You can access the survey here:
https://link.webropolsurveys.com/S/1B64E574946CE54F

The survey is anonymous. The results of this survey will be shared with oeksound. Filling your email address at the end of the survey is otherwise voluntary but needed to enter the draw. Email addresses of the respondents cannot be connected to the answers and will not be shared with other parties or used for any other purposes. Only the draw winner’s email address will be shared with oeksound to deliver the prize. The winner will be contacted by oeksound by the end of June.

The survey is also shared through other channels.


Thank you in advance!

It's a far better survey than most we get here. Not perfect, but definitely answerable.

It's a truly bizarre thread title.

It’s not a bad survey atall! The only confusion to me was - what is an audio plugin? I assumed it included every kind of virtual instrument, effect and metering tool that can be added as an individual item in a DAW (so excluding built in channel strip in Cubase for example).

Perhaps the OP could put their definition into the survey, or at least this thread?

Good survey IMHO...

... and much better than the short-lived SOS plug-in survey which was predicated on the idea that only music-people use plugins. :roll:

So, Ville Jokinen, I've completed your survey. What happens to it now? That is, what use will you make of the data collected? And in particular will you share your conclusions here? I'd be more interested in that than winning another plug-in.

TIA,

As a hobbyist, question 13 made me answer considerably above my station! :lol:

Hi Richard,

Thanks for the feedback! Yes, you assumed correctly. By audio plugins I did indeed mean all kinds of audio plugins: instruments, effects, metering etc. As long as it's usable in a DAW and is focused on audio in any way.

Hi!

After the survey closes (after July 15th), I will analyze the research results and report my findings in my thesis report. Since I am studying in Finnish, the report will also be in Finnish. My thesis will be published as public information, and I could share it here for you.

Unfortunately, I don't have the time or resources to translate it to English. So unless you speak Finnish, I don't think it would be of any use to you...

Google Translate does an amazing job these days so it would be worth posting up a link.

Google Translate seems to do pretty well with many languages nowadays, but it seems that Finnish -> English translations are very low priority with Google. Understandably though, Finland is a small country. But perhaps one can get some idea of it.

The publication of the thesis goes to august/september for practical reasons, so it'll be a while. But yeah, I will post a link here for those that are interested in the results!

Done, although being from England I had to tick the 'other' field when asked for my location :evil:

Hi all!

Thank you for the support. We have gotten a pretty good amount of respondents, but we still need a bit more! So I'm extending the survey until June 20th. So you still have time to answer and participate in the draw until the end of this week.
