Founded in 1990, Prosoniq, based in Karlsruhe, Germany, has provided key technologies to many companies in the music business, including Quantel, Emagic, Steinberg and Cakewalk.

It has also researched and developed many more technologies and tools for applications, including image decomposition, phoneme recognition, structural audio information retrieval and rendering, and more.
Today Prosoniq is best known for its Time Factory time-stretching and pitch-shifting batch processor, sonicWORX Isolate voice extraction/suppression and spectral editing application, Orange Vocoder classic vocoder plug-in, Morph real-time audio morphing plug-in, and NAS synthesis engine as used in the Hartmann Synthesizer.
