Audiotonix acquires Sound Devices

Sound Devices has become the latest member of the Audiotonix group, a collection of audio brands that includes Allen & Heath, Calrec, DiGiCo, DiGiGrid, KLANG:technologies, Solid State Logic and US-based audio and lighting distributor, Group One Limited. The acquisition coincides with the retirement of Sound Devices co-founder, Jon Tatooles, who has driven the company forward for the last 23 years. Co-founder Matt Anderson, who has been chief engineer since inception and CEO since 2013, will continue to serve in both roles.

“It has been incredible to build Sound Devices over the last 23 years into the organisation it is today,” the outgoing co-founder commented. “I am very excited about the next chapter for the company, and I leave it in great hands. Audiotonix is a great organisation who will build on the success we have achieved. I don’t believe there is a better partner.”

“I’ve enjoyed getting to know James and the team during the past few months,” added Anderson. “In terms of values and culture, Sound Devices fits perfectly within the Audiotonix group of companies. In a way, it will be business as usual at Sound Devices, as we will carry on doing the same thing we've been doing for the past 23 years: focusing intensely on making the best sound products we can. However, the Audiotonix group brings us more strength in terms of access to capital, depth in manufacturing, knowledge in engineering, sourcing of parts and expanding our sales and marketing expertise. I am extremely excited about this new opportunity.”

James Gordon, CEO of Audiotonix stated: “The addition of Sound Devices and their fantastic team to our portfolio of premium audio brands is a proud moment for all involved. Their expertise and technical pedigree in film production, broadcasting and professional recording is a great fit. As with previous acquisitions, we always look to increase the knowledge share group-wide and with FPGA-based solutions and RF wireless technology at their core, we have an enviable opportunity.”
