I almost gave up voting because there are just too many inconsequential links in this post - Next time I suggest you ONLY POST THE ONE LINK THAT ACTUALLY MATTERS!

Done.

Quite a few of the categories did not apply to me, but clicking "none" is a small price to pay to be able to give a boost to the good folks at PG Music and what I consider one of the 3 essential pieces of music software on my computer.

I'm providing the only link there is for voting. In order to cast your vote for us, you have to choose something from every category (or choose 'none' for these categories). smile

(yes, there were additional links in my post for the rules etc., however the "vote here..." link is the only one you'll need to vote)

And that's precisely the one link I nearly missed. I see now you've put that one in bold, however, which is much better cool

p.s. It then didn't even let me vote for your category anyway, something about "have already voted" confused
- So it looks like I got all worked up in vain

I wonder why SOS does not even list outstanding Software Instruments such as Pianoteq. Do these SOS people require some fee to even get listed on their voting charts?
