There are so many superb plugins and bits of music-making software released each year that picking a single 'best' is perhaps impossible.
That said, there are always stand-out examples - those that have solved problems or stimulated creativity - and these deserve shouting about.
Here we ask you to browse our shortlist of the top performing new software and let us know which you feel is most worthy of recognition and, perhaps, that title of best new plugin/software of 2020.
Want to vote in our other Best of music tech 2020 categories? You can do that here. Voting closes at midnight on 5 December.
