London, UK (March 17, 2021)—Under its Abbey Road Red “innovation arm,” legendary studio Abbey Road has acquired audio software house Audiomovers, aiming to make use of its namesake remote production product.
Founded in 2017 by Igor Maxymenko and Yuriy Shevyrov, Audiomovers’ subscription-based remote recording solution allows music professionals to stream, listen to and record high resolution multichannel remote audio in real time, with multiple collaborators, anywhere in the world. The solution includes the Listento and Listento Receiver plug-ins, as well as mobile apps; beta desktop software is currently in development.
The remote software supports lossless multichannel audio, up to 7.1 surround, and allows users to adjust both latency and bit rate. Designed with an eye towards aiding collaboration and adoption into existing workflows, the solution is said to be scalable from one-on-one distance-based recording to a large scale, scoring post-production facility streaming multichannel audio to multiple teams and listeners at the same time.
The software is available in week-, month and year-long subscriptions, supports iOS and Windows, works with most major DAWs and plug-in formats, and supports sample rates from 44.1 to 96 kHz.
For Abbey Road, the acquisition is strategic, allowing it to expand its purview and services beyond the walls of its famed studios. The start-up will continue under the Audiomovers name, with product and technology led by the founders.
Isabel Garvey, Abbey Road’s Managing Director, says: “In the past year, we’ve seen 100% of studio sessions requiring some level of remote access, and the name Audiomovers being repeatedly mentioned. We believe the shift to remote music production is here to stay and we want to be part of this new world, supporting music making in all its forms, no matter where creators might be located. It’s a natural extension for Abbey Road, enabling creativity beyond the physical building.”
