On December 20, Audiotonix announced its acquisition of Solid State Logic to join a portfolio that already includes leading audio brands DiGiCo, DiGiGrid, Calrec and Allen & Heath. Details of the deal were not available as Mix went to press.
James Gordon, CEO of Audiotonix, said, “We are growing the Audiotonix Group with professional audio brands that have exceptional technology, committed people and a real passion for what they do. With their incredible history and reputation, their enthusiasm and loyal customer base, SSL is ideally placed to be the next partner in the group.
Peter Gabriel, the majority shareholder in Solid State Logic, becomes an investor in Audiotonix as part of the transaction. He added, “My relationship with SSL began as a user, a customer and then as part owner. SSL has always made wonderful innovative equipment that encourages creativity, and I got involved because I never wanted to imagine a world without SSL. It is obvious with this sale that there are many in this growing Audiotonix group that are as nuts about new tech and good audio as we are.”
