We had a great time at NAMM & NAB 2023!

We recently attended both NAMM and NAB 2023, introduced Audio Design Desk 2.0 and Makr.AI, and won some awards!

Let’s take a look at everything that happened in a quick tour of our whirlwind experience!

We first showed ADD 2.0 at NAMM 2023 in Anaheim, CA. Attendees were blown away by huge leaps forward in technology, integration and the introduction of more AI features. With faster and more intelligent search and replacement capabilities, ADD now also provides auto-mix, stem separation and noise removal tools. It definitely stopped people in their tracks.

We also shared a sneak peek of our new social collaboration platform and many amazing features, like the marketplace and learning academy. It is the world’s first dedicated space for creative professionals and content producers, driven by next-generation AI and collaboration tools. It will allow people to connect more directly, produce more freely and streamline workflows in unbelievable ways. It’s a game-changing step forward for the future of our shared creative industries. It also gave us a chance to introduce more new products and integrations like Isolator, Plot Point, Sounds, Sessions and TalkToo.

And then we had to hustle over to NAB 2023, which was happening in Las Vegas, NV… Yes, the events actually overlapped! When we got there, we won Product of the Year and Best of Show for ADD and Makr.ai! This is the second year in a row that we have won Product of the Year at NAB. We were blown away! They hosted 1,700 exhibitors and over 100,000 attendees this year. It was quite an honor.

Many of our new tools are still in development, but some are already in Public Beta. Makr.ai will continue to grant access to new features as they roll out. You can sign-up for early access here.

Below is a comprehensive list of awards earned and products announced, along with their current status.
