New York, NY (December 21, 2018)—This just in: Happy holidays from the staff of Pro Sound News, and FUTURE.

Our daily e-newsletter returns to live news on January 2, 2019, filled with the latest happenings in Pro Audio, but until then, it will present a three-part series featuring our most-read news stories of 2018; our most-read blog posts of 2018; and an “In Memoriam” edition, honoring the audio pros who passed away this year.

If you don’t get the e-newsletter (and you should—it’s free and keeps you up to date, so subscribe here), you can find links to the best-of stories below.

Don’t forget, you can still find us and say ‘hi’ on Twitter and Facebook; we’re always up for a chat. If you need some last-minute gift ideas for audio pals (or yourself), try our Pro Sound News Holiday Gift Guide, 2018 Edition.

Until next year, have a safe and cheerful holiday season, filled with good times and even better sound.
