About Us

db audioware is a media technology company based in Glasgow, Scotland.

Audio Software

Professional audio software is our original speciality, particularly the design and build of high performance audio engines and audio plug-ins.

db audioware audio software is used by musicians, sound engineers, broadcasters and educators; it works around the clock in thousands of studios and radio stations worldwide.  As well as our own range of audio technology products, we have provided consultancy services to some of the biggest names in the audio world.

Lighting & Show Control Software

Since 2010, we have developed a range of lighting and show control software.  DMXIS, our first lighting product, was created for solo musicians and bands who want to add an automated light show to their act (without having to employ a lighting engineer).  Subsequent products have continued to support the growing number of live performers empowered by the LED lighting revolution, as well as offering innovative new tools to lighting professionals working on full-scale theatrical productions and architectural projects.

Education Software

In 2009, we released Sounds Active Essential Sound Engineering, a unique interactive package that teaches the fundamentals and techniques of sound recording and production.  Designed for schools and colleges, it has effectively become a national standard teaching resource in our home territory of Scotland, but is used throughout the UK and as far away as Australia, in a variety of educational settings.
