The voting for the sixth annual SOS Awards is now open. Once again we need your help in selecting the most outstanding audio products of the year in a total of 16 different categories, from mics, monitors and mixers to software instruments and plug‑ins. Everyone who casts their vote will automatically be entered in this year’s prize draw to win a fantastic bundle of premium mics and headphones from AKG, worth a whopping $14,000£10,000.
Donated by UK distributors Sound Technology, this year’s prize includes a customised version of AKG’s flagship C12VR multi‑pattern valve mic, matched stereo pairs of AKG C314s and C451Bs, and a pair of top‑of‑the‑line K812 reference headphones. Rounding out the bundle, a set of six dynamic mics — an AKG D12VR, a D112 MkII and four D40s — will take good care of miking drum kits, bass and guitar cabs and a range of other sound sources, in the studio or on stage.
You can vote by going to the web site: www.sosawards.com. Voting will continue throughout October and November, with the award winners announced in time for the Winter NAMM show in January 2016. So get voting — and good luck!
