Audiotonix Acquires KLANG:technologies

Parent company of Allen & Heath, Calrec, DiGiGrid, Solid State Logic and DiGiCo adds manufacturer of immersive 3D in-ear monitor mixing technologies.

DiGiCo announces the acquisition of KLANG:technologies as a key new addition to the Audiotonix family that already includes audio brands Allen & Heath, Calrec, DiGiGrid, Solid State Logic and DiGiCo. The deal, which was concluded last week, further brings together some of the most influential and innovative brands within the professional audio industry.

James Gordon, CEO of Audiotonix, comments: “We have had the pleasure of working with KLANG and their pioneering immersive technology for a couple of years, and when the opportunity arose for them to join Audiotonix, we were keen to make it happen. We have always stressed that with our M&A we would look at each brand’s requirement and help support them with their aspirations. On that basis, KLANG will become a key part of DiGiCo’s future, as they combine forces to improve the listening world of artists and monitor engineers alike. It is about to sound a lot more natural, with the arrival of I-IEM (Immersive In-Ear Monitoring).”

Austin Freshwater, GM of DiGiCo, adds: “We have been working in the background with KLANG for some months on increasing our level of integration. Over that time, it was clear the ethos of the development teams was similar, with a lot of shared common goals. Combining the control of the KLANG system into the DiGiCo worksurface will allow I-IEM and 3D personal monitoring to be a part of an engineer’s natural work flow, and that’s just the beginning for us and the KLANG team. We are keen to meet all their existing supporters and help more potential users understand the difference a KLANG system can make.”

Roman Scharrer, CEO of KLANG, summarizes with: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the team at KLANG. Having the wealth of industry knowledge and relationships that only the DiGiCo team have at our disposal is really going to allow us to demonstrate the benefits of our technology to those we feel will benefit the most from our groundbreaking development work. Being part of the Audiotonix family will allow our R&D team to bring more of our ideas to life. We can already anticipate that 2019 is going to be a busy year for us and we will continue to excite our users with innovative and sustainable solutions.”
