For more than two decades, The Electronic Musician Editors' Choice Awards have recognized the best new production tools in the music recording and performance industry. This year, a team of editors and contributors selected winners in 25 categories ranging from microphones to monitors to iPad apps.
The Editors’ Choice Awards issue is always our favorite issue to produce,” says Editor-In-Chief Sarah Jones. “It’s certainly challenging to narrow hundreds of worthy products down to just a few winners, but we continue to be inspired by the innovation we see everywhere in our industry—from exciting debuts from start-ups to game changers from iconic companies. We’re proud to recognize the best of the best.”
All award-winning products have been evaluated by Electronic Musician’s editors and contributors. To be eligible for an Editors' Choice award, products must have shipped between AES 2014 and AES 2015.
