In 2014, a group of audio scientists came together powered by a common vision: connecting the world through sound. SabineTek was born. We came from cutting-edge research institutions. We each brought with us our unique expertise in fields ranging from acoustics and telecommunications to electronic engineering.
CONNECTING THE WORLD THROUGH SOUND
We created our own design lab, and put our brains together to develop powerful audio recording engines, acoustic algorithms, & product prototypes. We are pragmatists—we get excited to solve the real problems of everyday people. One of our founder’s daughters had a music concert and he realized it was impossible to get a good recording. So we got the idea for a truly easy, powerful wireless microphone that anyone could set up, use anywhere, & get studio-quality recordings. We cracked other difficult problems like noise and echo, array beamforming, and feedback control. We made an efficient codec algorithm with less than-5-millisecond short frame latency, which improves on the well-known MP3/AAC codec. We also hold the world’s leading acoustic AI intelligent algorithm for the high-quality separation of multi-channel and multi-source. Our DAFX technology provides dozens of professional digital audio effects for entertainment, music, and general communication scenarios.
DOING IT OURSELVES: GOING TO MARKET
We knew our innovations were improving the industry, but we saw a problem. Third-party product developers didn’t always unleash the full power of the underlying tech. We realized: we could do it better. We knew we had to do it ourselves. Since Summer 2019 we launched two successful crowdfunding campaigns for our wireless recording suite: SmartMike+ in 2019 and then AudioWow in 2020. We were overjoyed by the support of our customers who funded our first round of product development. Content creators of all kinds appreciated how easy it was to get started and to free themselves from the constraints of overly-complicated audio setups. With SmartMike+ we gave them a super-compact, professional recording microphone then with AudioWow we gave them a powerful, wireless audio studio the size of a matchbox. And they got the freedom to create and do what they love. When we exceeded both funding goals, we knew we were on to something.
OUR MISSION & VISION
Our mission is to connect the world through sound. We do this by creating powerful audio solutions that are powerful, freeing, easy enough for anyone, and fun to use.
We are out to create a world where the most memorable moments in life are captured with the highest fidelity, a world where nothing precious goes unheard, and where people feel empowered to fall in love with the sound.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe in frictionless creation.
We believe that your voice is worth hearing.
We believe you should focus on doing what you love.
We believe in sharing ourselves with the world.
We believe we are better when we are connected.
We believe in the power and beauty of sound.
