AES 141 Meet the Sponsors! U-He

U-He have been generous enough to once again sponsor 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.

AES 141 | Meet the Sponsors! Auralex Acoustics

AES 141 | Meet the Sponsors! Auralex Acoustics

  Check out Auralex, sponsor of the Student Design Competition at AES 141!

Auralex Acoustics® was founded over 20 years ago on the belief that there had to be a much better alternative to the expensive acoustic foam panels available at that time. Indeed there was; not only dramatically less expensive, but also with significant performance advantages.


Today Auralex takes great pride in offering a full line of acoustical products based on the “better price/better mousetrap” principle.


The great initial success of Studiofoam® quickly led to other innovations including our industry-leading Venus™and LENRD™ Bass Traps. When no reasonably priced diffusors existed, we developed the high-performance T’Fusor™and MiniFusor™. When our customers demanded a modular, absorptive, expandable, and, most importantly, portable solution, we introduced the MAX-Wall™ (the first acoustical product to ever be featured on the cover of a major industry magazine) and Stand-Mounted LENRDs™ to great widespread acclaim!


When there were few low-cost, effective construction and isolation products, we answered with SheetBlok™U-Boat™ Floor FloatersPlatFoam™, and other affordable solutions. Most recently, our staff has created specialty products such as the GRAMMA™ (Gig & Recording Amp & Monitor Modulation Attenuator) and our hot new MoPADs™ that answer critical isolation needs and result in dramatically truer sound.

 

While some may try to imitate us, they fall way short.
