This year's SOS Awards are the first to place thier emphasis primarily on innovation and contemporary design by limiting the nominations to products launched in the 12 months prior to the voting period. The new format celebrates products launched in the period from September 2016 to the end of August 2017.
We also introduced a much-requested Guitar Technology category, as well as a long-overdue category for music software that is neither a DAW or a plug-in.
See all the winners here, as well as the very worthy close contenders in each category who have been awarded our Highly Commended accolade.
