Look—we like to be humble, but come on—it’s nice to be noticed. And we got noticed at NAMM this year to the tune of five awards from various industry honchoes. We’re flattered, and it looks like we might need to be upgrading the old trophy case if this trend continues into next year. Here’s a recognition-roundup from The Loudest Show on Earth.
TEC Award Winner – Best Mobile App:
Capture for iPad
NAMM U – Best in Show / Gotta Stock It
AudioBox Music Creation Suite
Technology in Music Education
2015 Ti:ME Award for Outstanding Contributions to Technology in Music Education
Musical Merchandise Review
Special 20th Anniversary Commemorative Award
Last but not least, we got several noms that we didn’t result in us taking home a li’l statue or glass widget to put in the display case—but that’s OK. They can’t all be zingers. We may well have been the most-nominated company at the show, but we’ll draw the line at actually keeping score.
Other nominations included:
Monitor Station V2 (Studio & Sound Reinforcement)
Capture for iPad (Audio Apps for Smartphones and Tablets)
Temblor T10 (Studio Monitors)
Notion 5 (Musical Instrument Software)
Studio One 2.6.2 (Workstation Technology)
StudioLive 32.4.2AI (Small Format Console Technology)
StudioLive AI Series Speakers (Sound Reinforcement Loudspeakers)
Not to brag or anything. But this is newsworthy, right? Fact is it’s nice to be noticed, and it would seem that we turned a couple heads at NAMM. We got so many trophies and atta-boys that we couldn’t even fit them in our suitcases to go back to Baton Rouge, and they had to be shipped separately.
