I always wonder why my cold meat is "premium quality" as well. Or why I actively save the planet, when I buy it in its bio degradable packaging. After I drove it home from the super market, in my fuel saving car, which actively helps to prevent armageddon, and the end of the world.
I bet if we spent half the R&D money we put into green technology into getting birth control to every single human on the earth that wanted it, we could save the planet.

I am reading it nearly every time when I am looking at the homepage of a synth developer.
They claim, that their vst is award winning.
What are all this awards vst´s can win this days and who awards them?
I have no idea.
The awards we present on our website are from tests in well-known printed magazines. Examples:
https://www.tone2.com/gladiator3.html
https://www.tone2.com/icarus.html

There are also websites, youtube channels and blogs that do tests. Examples and references:
https://www.tone2.org/forum/index.php?topic=544.0

As a customer it makes sense to check out of the 'award' is from a serious source

Icarus 1

Producer spot:
http://www.producerspot.com/review-icar ... n-by-tone2

"It's a really amazing synthesizer plugin. Tone2 have done a wonderful job at crafting this great synth which is for sure a game changer. Icarus is an incredibly versatile synth and able to produce awesome sounds in a jiffy. It's a must-have synthesizer plugin."


Soundbytes magazine:
http://soundbytesmag.net/review-icarus-tone2/

"A truly powerful beast with nearly endless combinations of sound manipulation capabilities. I really like the vocoder’s sound, and the resynthesis they’ve included is easy to use. It has awesome waveform/wavetable editing, tons of high quality presets, and its huge number of filter and effect types really make this a knockout synth you simply must try for yourself."

OK, but seriously, this is just basic marketing and networking. If your company receives an award for your product, you use that to your competitive advantage and you acknowledge and show your appreciation for the award by mentioning it on your website. I don't see the problem here. :shrug:

Why should a printed magazine waste expensive paper with articles about crappy plugins? Their customers want to be informed about the stuff that is good and about garbage

I agree with Markus here. I'd go even further, people buy those magazines to read about the good stuff, not the bad. As circulation dwindles, ad revenue falls and budgets get tight, they simply can't afford to write about crap anymore. Plus, of course, there's so much stuff out there, they can pick from enough good stuff.

:roll:
I am familiar with CM. They send me every mag that contains a test about a product from my company.
I don't know about other companies but want to point out here clearly that we never paid a single cent to CM for anything.
