Wheatstone Acquires AudionLabs


Wheatstone-logoWheatstone Corp. has acquired AudionLabs, and with it their VoxPro digital audio editor.

Audion’s VoxPro is a PC-based software program used in radio studios as a broadcast-specific digital voice editor designed to record and quickly edit phone calls on the fly for on-air broadcast.

Terms and price were not disclosed.

Charlie Brown created the first VoxPro editor in the early 1990s while working as a Seattle morning jock and founded Audion Labs in 1994; both he and Wheatstone CEO Gary Snow said as part of Wheatstone, VoxPro can now be sold worldwide, benefitting from Wheatstone’s

24/7 support and distribution channel.

Wheatstone and Audion Labs have had a longstanding relationship over the years, resulting in the integration of the VoxPro editor into the WheatNet-IP audio network environment for online sharing, editing and archiving audio files. Audion Labs will remain a separate brand under Wheatstone. Audion Labs’ CTO Rick Bidlack will remain with the company.
