It was a very good year... right?

It´s awards season, and here at CM we´ve been pondering our favourite music technology happenings over the past twelve months. Here are some of our most treasured moments from the last year:

The Good

• Windows XP running on Intel Macs

• The rise of Reaper

• The KVR Developer Challenge

• Zebra 2, possibly the best soft synth ever

• SSL Duende

Of course for every Golden Globe there has to be a Razzie, so here are some of the less than scintillating things that we´ve endured:

The Bad

• Sonalog Gypsy MIDI - nice idea but so expensive

• Arturia Brass - failed to give us the horn

• Increasingly irritating copy protection mechanisms

• Wave Idea Bitstream 3X - wonky sliders

Those are our high and low-lights, but what have you loved and loathed over the last twelve months?
