Iconic audio innovator Paul Wolff has teamed with visionary startup DCA (“digitally controlled analog”) to create a new legend in professional audio.
Wolff Audio’s mission is to deliver audio tools with uncompromising performance and unprecedented control to inspire audio professionals at every level.
Paul Wolff has been at the forefront of audio innovation for more than four decades as the force behind legendary brands including API, Tonelux, and Fix Audio Designs. His inspired designs have also contributed to breakthrough technologies for Steve Slate, Sunset Sound, A-Designs and numerous more.
Wolff has a well-earned reputation for sonic excellence and has long been regarded as the mad genius in residence for the world’s top audio professionals.
Who Are DCA?
Founded in 2019, DCA is the brainchild of Jared Vogt, creator of TL Labs, one of the pioneering Pro Tools plugin manufacturers, acquired by Digidesign/Avid. DCA’s mission is to create “digitally controlled analog” hardware, and the company is dedicated to advancing workflow and utility.
DCA’s flagship product, ProPatch, is the first truly passive, relay based, software controlled, high channel count, patching system. It will enable exciting new possibilities in signal flow design and management, with zero audio compromise. The first ProPatch units are in the final stages of release at select studios.
The New Wolff Audio
True to its innovative and prolific founders, Wolff Audio will introduce a wide range of products that combine Wolff’s inventive designs with DCA’s digital engineering, including large and medium format recording consoles, classic analog processors, mic pres, equalizers, and compressors. Products will be characterized by enhanced workflow innovations such as digital control, intercommunication, integrated AD/DA conversion and AoIP/Dante support.
THE HISTORY BEHIND THE NAME FIX:
"In 1972, hanging out at a local TV shop in Traverse City, Michigan, a guy comes in with a Strat with 'no sound. The shop owner had no clue. I pulled the back off the guitar and soldered the jack, as it had twisted enough to break the cable, and that "fixed" it. The guitar player looked at me and said, 'Your name will be Fix… The keyboard player in that band, called Chopper, Edgar Struble, is still a friend, and currently the music director for Dick Clark Productions."
