Technical and visual excellence

We're an eager audio software company from Germany that brings you premium quality audio plugins for your digital audio workstation. Our processors can be used in the most popular host applications such as Steinberg Cubase, Apple Logic, Ableton Live, Avid ProTools and many others supporting the AAX, VST and Audio Units formats. We put all our dexterity into designing and creating the most state-of-the-art audio software. We want to support you in your everyday recording, mixing or mastering process and provide you with highly creative, inspiring and great sounding tools.

As musicians ourselves we know about the expectations towards audio software. Our development process is entirely focused on what our customers demand when it comes to the shaping of sound – easy to use plugins, that are well designed and functional. All aspects are carefully balanced around the audio processing to create our unique products. It's our passion to bring you the most pristine sounding, visually appealing and convincing plugins. Thank you for appreciating our work and have fun browsing our website.

Why another licensing system?

With all due respect to their creators, we've come to the conclusion that hardware based copy protection solutions are anything but user-friendly. Having to carry two or more dongles on your keychain is an annoyance, but have you ever experienced the loss of one of them? Being required to install extra license management software or drivers isn't particularly encouraging, either. Our goal when creating our own license service was to keep things as simple as possible: Just install the software, enter your email and serial number and you're ready to go. No more time wasted for annoying license download or activation procedures.

Software copy protection may not be famous for being unbreakable. But, of course, we don't support crack-users and we trust our customers just like we hope they trust us. So we came up with the idea of simply embedding our license service into our plugins, enabling you to activate all of them online in just a few clicks. Your studio computer is offline? Well, no problem, just manually copy your serial number from our web based license manager that also runs well on cell phones when you're on the road. Of course, we are continuously improving our system in order to eventually bring you one of the most user-friendly systems around.

We love what we do

We are passionate engineers and passionate musicians and we have studied hard to become professionals in each of our respective fields, always striving for excellence and perfection. Getting there was fun, but it also involved devoting many hours of sweat, work and patience and at some point we had to realize: The journey is the reward. We'd like to finally share products with you that meet our own demands and support you in the part we all love the most: Creating and enjoying music.

Over the time in which the idea grew to form Black Rooster Audio, there sure have been things that stole our focus. Different opportunities crossed our ways, we met and linked with some of the best people but we also went through lows when mentors and supporters turned away. So finally, we forced our way through and we must admit: We love what we do, we love our products and we want you to be a part of it all. Join the Black Rooster Audio community!

We would like to say thank you

We would like to say „Thank you!“, to our loyal customers and our diligent group of beta-testers. We appreciate all your valuable feedback and your amazing ideas. We are proud to establish and support a collective of passionate musicians, engineers and producers that appreciate the quality of our products. We want you to be part of a fellowship that really connects us beyond a mere business relationship. Participate in making Black Rooster Audio more than just a company, but a community!

Thanks so much to our friends and families who went through hard times while we were pushing out the boat. We have sacrificed so many hours of precious time and had so many sleepless nights between doubt and enthusiasm. Being under pressure we surely haven't been relaxed and fair all the time and founding a company is not an easy thing. So we just like to say thank you for calming us down, for bearing with us, for helping us out, for always being there on every level.
