Unfiltered Audio is a music software company from Southern California. It was founded with one simple idea: music software should be created by musicians. Joshua Dickinson studied composition at Columbia University in New York City. After stumbling into a full-wall RCA Mark II at the Computer Music Center, he became obsessed with signal processing, custom instruments, and computer-aided creativity.
Michael Hetrick, PhDC, studied digital media at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee while working as a Pro Tools tech for local studios. His passion for modular synthesizers and experimental sound design has led him towards a goal of developing performance-focused interfaces for feature-rich audio processors.
They joined forces with Dr. Ryan Michael McGee at UC Santa Barbara while working on their Masters degrees in the prestigious Media Arts and Technology department. There, they trained under some of the greatest minds in DSP and music technology while receiving guidance in developing their own cutting-edge algorithms. After releasing their first two plugins, Sandman and G8, they have received awards from many sources, including the Audio Engineering Society and Computer Music Magazine.
