Sintefex Audio and inventor Mike Kemp are pleased to announce that the US patent office has now granted two patents on the EQ and dynamics sampling technology used in the flagship award winning FX8000 Replicator, and under licence in the Focusrite Liquid Mix(tm) and Liquid Channel(tm).

Mike Kemp said "I was investigating reasons why digital processing wasn't sounding good ten years ago when I invented the techniques covered in these two patents. There have been many other people wanting to do the same, perhaps inspired by technical papers and demonstrations I have given over the past few years. I'm pleased that although it has taken a long time to get these patents through the international system and issued in the United States, at least the priority of my ideas has been acknowledged to precede many recent offerings."

The two patents cover both the much discussed Dynamic Convolution (tm) process (7,039,194), and the techniques for digitally simulating dynamics processors by storing the parameters of an analogue system (7,095,860).
