These are the names on the forms, incidentally; I take no credit for typos. We’re confirming with these winners; if any is unconfirmed, we will re-award the prizes.

We got an extraordinary number of entrants: nearly 3,000 qualified entries, and 4,000 entries from around the world. And, the banner prizes aside, we got an amazing selection of websites from readers in the US and around the world. We’ll be sending Ableton beanies around the globe to some of our favorite selections. The variety and quality of websites is truly overwhelming, so I expect to be digging through these over the coming weeks, highlighting some favorites as we go. I really am going through them all; that’s what’s taking so long!

We also got a real look at who you are and what interests you, including some of our sizable international readership; I hope to share some of that with everyone soon.

Thanks to our sponsors: I really want to thank, in reverse alphabetical order, PreSonus, Moog Music, Ableton, Native Instruments, Glyph, Alesis, Numark,, and Akai Professional for making this giveaway possible and for their support of the site. We reached out to sponsors who matter a lot to us, and it’s terrific to have their support of the site.
