I thought we decided not to show the tally until end of the voting?

Anyway, there is a typo in the first post:
"All KVR who meet the following the following requirement are encouraged to vote!"

Best of luck. May the best patch win :-)

It was discussed, but nothing was decided. Unless we move to a secret ballot it really doesn't make any difference - with the votes cast openly in the thread anyone can easily work out the tally.

As far as the arguments for a secret ballot go - I agree, it would be the ideal way of doing things, but it's more easily said than done.

1. Hurry Up and Weight
2. THE BLADE
3. LD VS MW
4. Doomsday
5. Under Water

I feel these fit the "theme" requirements, though several were a tough call, they were ultimately ~ too *musical*. (IMO)

Good stuff ~ enjoyed them ALL 8)

Some very nice patches. Tough to judge, so much variety.
I found 'Doomsday' to be far and away my favorite. Very playable. Using an XY pad in place of pitch and mod wheels really brought this one alive.
'BeatBOXBiosFlash' and 'Hurry Up and Weight' have a similar unpredictable character that I find very inspiring.
I liked 'Tesla Orgasmatron' for the wide variety of textures it produces and of course the name. :)
'LD VS MW' makes me wish I could play keyboard better. I was really surprised how animated this sound became when I play with the pitch and mod wheel.

Honorable mention goes to 'THE BLADE' I love the sound but I found the most interesting stuff happens at low velocity, which made it tough to control. Probably has more to do with my playing style than anything.

Thanks everyone!
Special thanks for Hakey and Brian!
