Development video

Join us in the LEWITT studio and watch the development video on Project 1040.

Together, we'll improve 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.

Now we are bringing our prototypes to recording studios all around the world to make sure the outcome is the best it can be.

And we also want you to be part of the final result.

Collaboration is key

Project 1040, what has happened so far.

Project 1040 began as an extensive dialogue with our friends in the audio community. 

It's this partnership that always helps us to learn about pain-points, understand how to improve the recording workflow, and give you the tools that you really want.

Finding the right sound

The sound in your head.

We found that tube technology provides the greatest flexibility to create different sound characteristics.

Picture a glowing tube. Now you may think about a warm, compressed, saturated sound, yet the person next to you may have been thinking about hi-fi-like clean sound. All of that can be true for a tube microphone.

After countless prototypes, we settled on four sound characteristics; Clear, Warm, Saturated, Dark.

The perfect workflow

Dial in the perfect sound, remotely.

The ultimate microphone system will give you a comprehensive set of options to dial in on the perfect sound. And what is the best spot to hear it? Right at your studio desk, in your sweetspot!

You’ll have a remote control on your desk, which communicates with the mic via standard studio 3-pin XLR cable.

Not only will you save time and effort, but your sessions will run smoother and sound better than ever.
