Voting for the KVR Developer Challenge 2021 is now closed and it's time to announce the winners!
Once again, thanks to everyone who has entered (and donated, and who will donate). Donations will remain open for a further week (until August 17th, 2021) so if you've been holding off donating until you see who won, now is the time.
The 37 entries will of course remain available for download, for free, for everyone, at: kvraudio.com/kvr-developer-challenge/2021
The Winner - WhispAir by Full Bucket Music
As a cross-platform release, Full Bucket Music takes the lion's share of the prize fund (60%).
Congratulations Full Bucket Music!
The Runner-Up - GR-8 by Phuturetone
Well done Phuturetone, 20% of the final prize fund is heading your way.
In third and fourth places, separated by just a few votes, are Full Bucket Music's second entry, a Grain FX plug-in called Grain Strain, and FKFX Influx, a Sequenced Resonator Distortion plug-in by FKFX. Both are available for Windows and macOS. The top 5 is completed by Laras Composition, a Java Music Composition Tool by Heri H. Hasyim.
Soundware Winner - Virtuosity Drums by Versilian Studios
The highest placed soundware entry, taking home 10% of the prize fund, is Virtuosity Drums by Versilian Studios, a cool contemporary Jazz Drum Kit sample library in sfz/WAV format that loads into the excellent free Sforzando player (VST, AU & AAX) by Plogue.
Wildcard Winner - FKFX Influx by FKFX
As an interesting processor / effect plug-in, which received more 5s than all but the top two entries, we have decided to award the Wildcard Winner position to FKFX Influx by FKFX, a Sequenced Resonator Distortion plug-in for macOS and Windows (VST2, VST3 & AU).
We'll finish up by repeating our thanks to everyone who entered, voted, donated or just enjoyed the KVR Developer Challenge 2021. Maybe we'll do another in 2022...
Donations will remain open for a further week (until August 17th, 2021). The winners will be contacted to receive their share of the prize fund shortly after.
