DiGiCo acquires Fourier Audio

UK-based live sound developer and manufacturer Fourier Audio has been acquired by audio console manufacturer DiGiCo. Building on its acquisition of KLANG:technologies in 2018, DiGiCo says the latest deal further strengthens its investment in live sound innovation. Over the last 24 months the Fourier Audio team has been developing a new platform bringing the power of studio audio software plug-ins to live engineers, codenamed ‘Project Core’. It will be presented for the first time on the DiGiCo booth at AES New York later this month.

“At DiGiCo we are always looking at how we can enhance our customers’ ability to provide new and exciting possibilities in live performance audio,” said DiGiCo MD Austin Freshwater. “With Fourier Audio, we are investing in a team that will soon launch an integrated plug-in processing engine, ‘Project Core’, bringing new opportunities for DiGiCo to work with third party software providers, truly plugging in the world of live sound on a platform our clients can trust.”

The latest addition to the Audiotonix family sees Fourier Audio join a growing roster of pro audio brands that includes Allen & Heath, Calrec, DiGiGrid, KLANG:technologies, Harrison, Slate Digital, sonible, Sound Devices, Solid State Logic and DiGiCo.

“Knowing first-hand how successful and well regarded DiGiCo and the wider Audiotonix family are in the live market, this is a fantastic next step in Fourier’s growth,” commented Fourier Audio founders Henry Harrod (CEO), Peter Bridgman (CTO) and Gareth Owen (CCO). “Being part of a global network of partners and clients that are at the top of their game – in live events, touring and installed audio – gives us the opportunity to rapidly change the way that engineers and artists shape their shows. It’s an exciting time to be in an invigorated live market and we can’t wait to dream big with our new colleagues.”

James Gordon, Audiotonix CEO, added: “We are always looking for the next audio innovators that are a good technology and cultural fit, and with Fourier I’m pleased to say we have found both. Bringing this talented team into the Audiotonix fold under DiGiCo will allow us to give live sound users access to a wider range of our own and other 3rd party developers’ plug-ins. At AES New York we invite all plug-in manufacturers to come and have a frank and open discussion, and I can’t wait to start talking to these plug-in brands about how we will be able to open the live sound market to their unique tools.”
