Project 1040

Developing the ultimate microphone system

Follow the project

Together, we'll enhance the status quo of your studio workflow.

You probably know how it goes in many recording sessions. It starts with a long process aiming to find the right sound for the voice or instrument you want to record. 

Our vision is to make the process of getting the perfect sound as easy as possible by giving you that sound you envision, the one you already hear in your head.

To make sure the outcome is the best it can be, we are beta testing the prototypes in recording and home studios all around the world.
