OtiumFX becomes Tone Projects (Sonitex STX-1260, Compadre Beatpuncher and Basslane all updated)

Tone Projects

Effective immediately OtiumFX is changing its name to become: Tone Projects. Along with the name change a new website is launched at www.toneprojects.com and all former OtiumFX plug-ins – Sonitex STX-1260, Compadre Beatpuncher, and the freebie Basslane - are released in updated versions under the Tone Projects brand. The updated versions are free for existing customers and contain new features, improvements, and bug fixes.

The team behind Tone Projects remains unchanged from OtiumFX, but the new brand reflects the refined focus and experience gained after 6 years as a developer of unique audio plug-ins. The new name is also intended to strengthen the brand clarity and recognisability amongst international users.

"We're quite proud of the good reputation the OtiumFX brand has earned, but we wanted a name that better conveyed what we're about; and let's face it, a name that people can pronounce. Tone Projects will continue the very same philosophy that was behind OtiumFX and carry over our tradition for making finely tuned plug-ins with distinct character" says Rune Lund-Hermansen, head of Tone Projects.
