2020 marks 25 years since I started Listen, Inc. What a year to try to plan a celebration! We began the year with grand plans for parties and events to celebrate with employees, distributors and customers, but as you know, 2020 has not exactly gone according to plan…
That said, I would like to take a minute to share a little about Listen’s history with you. When I reflect on the 25 years since I began work on the first commercial software and soundcard based audio test system, I am struck by the number of firsts we have had over the years. Many features and capabilities that others have launched in the past couple of years have been included in SoundCheck since the 1990s, and most of the analysis techniques we pioneered are considered industry standard today. I am immensely proud of what my company and employees (both past and present) have built over the years, and feel honored to be able to refer to so many leading names in the audio industry, both companies and individuals, as my friends, colleagues and customers.
Check out our timeline below describing the history of SoundCheck and associated products, and an article that featured in this year’s Loudspeaker Industry Sourcebook, discussing the changing landscape of the audio test and measurement industry over the past quarter-century. Here’s to the next 25 years!
