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.

AES 143 | Thank You Sponsors! Sweetwater

Doing the right thing...since day one.

It seems so simple: just make your customers happy!
In fact it takes a lot of hard work to make it happen — but not everyone is willing to make that effort. That very simple concept is the reason Sweetwater was founded in the first place. 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.

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.

DrMS now also has little brother called StereoDelta. And even more, Mathew Lane has recently gone hardware by introducing the OnTheMoon SPACECRAFT, a unique analog spatial processor based on his spatialising technology.
