Audion was founded in 1994 by Charlie Brown, who created the first VoxPro editor in the early 1990s.
The company will remain a separate brand entity under Wheatstone. Audion Labs� Chief Technology Officer Rick Bidlack will remain with the company and operate from his office in Seattle.
Audion�s VoxPro is a PC based software program with optional control panel surface developed to facilitate rapid-fast audio editing. The program was previously integrated into the WheatNet-IP audio network environment for online sharing, editing and archiving audio files. After the acquisition, VoxPro users will have access to Wheatstone�s 24/7 support and distribution channel that includes an international footprint.
VoxPro adds to Wheatstone�s broadcast studio lines that include Vorsis and Audioarts Engineering brand names, as well as IP audio networking, control surfaces, talent stations, audio processing, software applications, and other products developed and designed specifically for broadcast.
