electronic MUSICIAN - February 2016 - The 2016 Editor's Choice Awards
Electronic Musician – February 2016
This issue brings you the 2016 Editor’s Choice Awards. We approach awards a little differently here. Rather than shoehorning gear into rigid product categories, we prefer to pick the winners first, and then create a unique award for each product that truly celebrates the things that make it special.
So join us in celebrating this year’s 25 winners – innovative products that will help you make better music, whether you’re in the studio, onstage, or in the DJ booth.
