Meet Bob Moses, one of our honorable judges of the Student Design Competition at AES139 in New York.
Bob Moses is Executive Director of the AES, with three decades of experience as an audio product designer. He is most known for his role in inventing audio over Firewire, which fueled the “project studio revolution”. Bob has had his fingers in the design of products for dozens of pro audio companies over the years, and thinks he might still have one more box in him before he fades out.

We, the Student Delegate Assembly are extremely excited to announce that U-He are once again sponsoring this year's Student Recording Competition.
What is the prize? U-He are providing four winning students each with a licence for the synthesiser or plugin of their choice from U-He's catalogue.
Berlin-based audio software company u-he was founded in 2001 by Urs Heckmann. Originally a one-man show, the company recently evolved into a tightly-knit team of employees, active associates and 3rd-party contractors – with ambitious plans.
Especially well known for the Zebra2 and Diva software synthesizers, u-he has developed several other successful products over the last decade, and regularly contributes freeware to popular magazines (available as download or on cover discs).
Despite their underlying complexity, u-he synths and effects are widely acclaimed for their ease of use. This is often attributed to Urs Heckmann's background as industrial designer. Heckmann sees the seemingly unconventional decision to start an audio software company as a direct result of his equal love for industrial design and for synthesizers.
Most recently, u-he has been exploring concepts for analogue synthesizers, and the first results can be heard in the software synths ACE / Bazille (audio-rate modulation paths) as well as Diva, Presswerk and Satin (accurate simulation of electronic circuitry). Hive is u-he's first foray into the world of low CPU dance-oriented synths.
