Gearslutz Awards

why not have an "award" for difrent categories like "low-end" , "high end" or high end compressor, low end compressor, best DAW, best pre, best mic, EQ plug etc. etc etc .
and maybe with the help of a member make a logo.
and vote via a memebrs poll and every year or less give the "simbolic award".

reasons why?

i dunno, seems it could help small manufactures who are memebers and not .

promote gearslutz and gear. help jules , mods, etc.

and maybe get less threads involving "what compressor to buy" or "best neve clone"?
which where cool the 1st few but there must be hundreds of those.

any other anyone can think of?

saw a few small companies with "read the reviews in" which gave me the idea.
if this is old news then,,, oh well.

watcha think?

I'd stay away from the gear ones. Nobody's used all the stuff -- especially the new, innovative stuff which should be getting the awards (Latch Lake Mic King! Latch Lake Mic King...ahem!). Besides...two words for Jules: 1) stress 2) ballot box stuffing

...and 3) more stress.

O.K.: "Rant of the Year." And your nominees are:
(you get the idea).

Or some music awards might be nice:

"24-bit dynamics-friendly release of the year"

well, in a structured and well organized way and its a poll thing so its If the members like it based on usage , marketing, whatever. a members poll.

the categories would similar to the AES ones, TEC awards etc.

future music and computer music mag gives awards and its based on maybe no more than 2-3 people.

maybe because it would just further hype affordable used gear that would then become unaffordable?
