The list has been since I remember a place to announce audio works, not
only software, and when someone give us links of their work, it happened
often that he got critics from listeners, so he can fix some of his audio

But anyway the audio creator/producer has the last word, like the same on
the side of software givers.

This said with all my respect for audio and software creators.
