Having gathered your votes on our long list of nominations last month, we're pleased to present - in alphabetical order - the final shortlist of the 10 products competing for the Computer Music Music Software of the Year Award.
The final winner will be announced at the prestigious MIA Awards bash at the Park Plaza Riverbank hotel in London on 4 December.
Run in conjunction with the UK's Music Industries Associaton (MIA), this award is designed to celebrate the very best in performance, quality, value for money and retail success. The shortlist recognises the finest products to have come to market since November 2012, but is in alphabetical rather than ranked order. Browse the gallery to see the hardware that made the final list!
