Fourier Audio, founded by Henry Harrod, is transforming the live sound landscape with their advanced software and platform solutions. Harrod, a seasoned sound engineer and producer with a background in mechanical and acoustical engineering, co-founded Fourier Audio to bring sophisticated plugins and software tools to live production environments. With the pandemic halting live theater, Fourier Audio seized the opportunity to revolutionize live sound by leveraging digital tools traditionally used in studio settings.

The transform.engine platform, a robust solution providing real-time digital replicas of physical assets, now features the iLok USB embedded within the hardware. This is leveraged by Fourier Audio’s innovative software running on the platform for enhanced security so it is protected against piracy and unauthorized use, enabling them to confidently distribute and monetize their products.

Henry Harrod, co-founder and CEO of Fourier Audio, shares, "PACE is considered such a gold standard in our industry. It would be wrong for us not to have a good working relationship with them. We couldn’t do what we are doing and how we do it without the relationship we have with PACE."

The partnership with PACE Anti-Piracy was a natural choice for Fourier Audio. Harrod recalls, "I grew up in a world where plugins were starting to replace hardware equipment, and PACE was front and center. The elegance of having a USB key that you can move around and carry with you is useful to someone using the transform.engine."
