AES 143 | Thank You Sponsors! Acustica Audio

In these modern days of accessibility, nearly anything can be purchased. If you have money, you can simply have things. This sets you apart because you are able to amass more tools.
 
But Acustica has a different idea about the future: true power is knowledge. When it comes to our tools, anyone with a small amount of money (compared to the enormous cost of audio gear and software) can have tools more powerful and more “musical” than they have ever imagined. We are living in a radical and liberating era of audio and audio technology, nearly everyone who works with audio is seeing this. Now the differences between the average person and the wealthier person are much smaller in respects to the tools that can be attained. They meet however on the common ground of knowledge. And now, only creativity, ability, and what one does with these tools are the barometer of difference.
 
We believe true richness is found in possessing knowledge. Knowledge and hard work equates to wealth. Here at Acustica, one can easily acquire amazing tools to prove that...

AES 143 | Thank You Sponsors! Sonnox

Sonnox is the leading designer of innovative, high quality, award-winning audio processing plug-ins for professional audio engineers. Oxford Plug-Ins are used in an extraordinary range of audio applications including mixing for music production, live sound, broadcast, TV & Film, and even scientific and forensics projects. 

The Sonnox design team traces its heritage back to the 1980's, to the development of the legendary Oxford OXF-R3 digital mixing console. With a base price of $1 million, the OXF-R3 was installed in major recording studios worldwide, and became widely accepted as the first ‘musical’ sounding digital console. 

As music production began shifting towards digital workstations, the console inspired a series of unique software developments starting with the Oxford EQ and Dynamics plug-ins.

The expanding family of Oxford Plug-Ins quickly acquired a reputation for excellence among leading engineers worldwide; a reputation that was earned through a no-compromise attitude to audio performance and a desire to push the boundaries with intuitive and novel user interfaces.

Sonnox continues to develop unique, high-quality plug-ins for audio production, embracing new technology and formats with partners such as Avid, Universal Audio and Fraunhofer.

Since 1979, founder Chuck Surack has committed to "doing the right thing", and this belief is at the core of Sweetwater's identity, ethics, and practice.

AES 143 | Thank You Sponsors! Leapwing Audio

Many thanks to Leapwing Audio for sponsoring the student recording competition! 

We love analog and we love digital. We also recognise that there are things you can’t do in the analog domain and understand that focus is key. You will not find us creating analog imitations. There are other companies that do this very well. We want to solely focus on tools that use the strength of digital to shape and improve sound.

We are geeks but also end-users. We don’t want to build complicated tools, where it takes a user 10 minutes to get a decent sound. Our goal is that once you open our tools, that within 10 seconds, you understand what it does and you get a great sound within the next 10 seconds.

We have a clear dedication to build something that’s easy to use and intuitive. 

We pride ourselves to focus on only using the highest quality filters and algorithms we can come up with, knowing the current boundaries of modern-day CPUs. We might spend weeks getting filters to sound just the way we want. We also strongly believe that our paying customers should not be our beta testers so we’ve set up a very strong testing and debugging framework to make sure our plugins leave here in the best possible condition.
