AES 142 Thank You Mathew Lane

AES 142 Thank You Mathew Lane

Many thanks to Mathew Lane for sponsoring the student recording competition!

Mathew Lane audiotools are innovative new solutions, created when no other hardware or software could be found suitable for the task.

The DrMS spatial processor is Mathew Lane's first product, already widely accepted by audio professionals as a unique plugin. It's being used by top producers and engineers on songs by well known artists such as Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay and many others. Legendary mix engineer Dave Pensado is a fan and has been showing the use of DrMS on several of his Pensado's Place Into The Lair videos.

DrMS is a unique spatial processor, available as AAX/RTAS/AU/VST plugin, with a wide range of applications for mixing, mastering and post production - going from simple MS (Mid-Side) encoding/decoding, over stereo field width and depth enhancement, to fixing mono compatibility issues and more.

AES 142 Thank You U-HE

AES 142 Thank You U-HE

Many thanks to u-he for sponsoring the student recording competition!

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.
