We don’t discuss review scores with publishers or developers prior to the review being published.

The Audio Spotlight will regularly adjust its assessment of sample and SFX libraries and hardware over the life of those products. These changes will always be explained and transparent. This is done completely at the discretion of The Audio Spotlight writers and editors.

If there are factual errors, we will update the review. If the facts aren’t written anywhere on your website, we will not update the review.

Companies may send sample or SFX or other products or samples to our editors in order for our staff to review such samples and determine whether we will provide a review of the product on The Audio Spotlight. We do not accept any samples on any preconditions, such as, that we will agree to provide a review simply because the company sent us a sample.

Occasionally, we decide to review something which has not been provided to us by a company. In this case, an editor will purchase the product for themselves and we will mention it in the review.

Our reviews do not and will not contain any affiliate links.
