SCV to distribute SPL products for UK & Ireland

Posted on: Monday 13th of July 2020

SCV will take on distribution of all professional audio products across SPL’s studio and mastering product portfolio, for both UK and Ireland. “We are really looking forward to working with SCV Distribution. As an expert for Professional and Consumer Audio, SCV is the perfect partner to support our dealer network in the United Kingdom and Ireland,” said Hermann Gier, managing partner of SPL.

SCV’s newly forged partnership with SPL comes at an time when the company’s portfolio has broadened to more than 30 unique, powerful, recording and mastering products, along with a well-earned reputation for quality across the audio industry. “As manufacturers of unique and incredibly innovative audio technology, SPL are a company that we at SCV could not be happier to be working with,” said Andrew Stirling, SCV sales & marketing director.

SPL was founded in 1983 by sound engineer Wolfgang Neumann who began designing and building his own preamps, compressors and gates while working at a recording studio in the late 1970s. By 1987, Neumann had hired musician Hermann Gier as a managing partner, and the company quickly started to gain momentum.

During the early years SPL developed the Vitalizer, a unique and patented EQ system developed from scratch which gave the company recognition for the first time outside Germany, and has sold at least 100,000 units worldwide across various product generations.

 

This was followed by another landmark release in the 1990s with the birth of SPL’s Transient Designer, which proved to be particularly popular with US studios. After the turn of the millennium, SPL turned their attention to headroom performance, culminating in the invention of their proprietary 120V technology which is now used in a large number of SPL studio and mastering products to good effect.

 

SPL’s company focus has always centred around creativity, performance and most importantly problem solving. Hermann Gier highlights a particular episode in the early 2000s where mixing on headphones in his family home to avoid noise was producing both excellent headphone mixes, and dreadful loudspeaker mixes. To solve the problem and bridge the gap, the company produced Phonitor Matrix technology. By employing tuneable crossfades to emulate the angled position of speakers while listening, SPL made it easier to create mixes on headphones which translated seamlessly also to monitors.
