Glitchmachines was established in 2005 by sound designer Ivo Ivanov. For the first five years of our brand’s existence, we were focused on building handcrafted circuit-bent hardware instruments. We sold a limited number of units through boutique synthesizer retailers Analogue Haven and Robotspeak in California and we custom made instruments for numerous high-profile artists and sound designers. In 2010, we shifted our focus toward developing creative audio software and sound effects.
Our mission is to bring you the best in forward-thinking sound effects and unconventional audio software. Our vision is to push boundaries and go against trends in order to continue to innovate, all while keeping our prices affordable and retaining the highest possible quality in our specialized products. Our goal is to stay connected with our audience in order to make a meaningful impact on the creative communities with whom we fuel industry growth and technical advancement.
Ivo Ivanov is the Founder and CEO of Glitchmachines. He was drawn to synthesizers and computer technology in the 1980s, which inspired his life-long passion for audio engineering and sound design. Aside from running Glitchmachines for over a decade, Ivo has custom-built handcrafted hardware instruments for artists and sound designers across the globe and worked with numerous creative audio companies including Ableton, Native Instruments, Tiptop Audio, SoundMorph, Twisted Tools, Inear Display and K-Devices.
Thomas Hennebert works closely with us to help develop our software plugin products. He originally established himself with plugin releases such as the critically acclaimed Eurydice, Bucephal, Gorgon, Danaides and Bow Echo. He continues to release an impressive lineup of boutique creative processing software under his own brand name, Inear Display. His recent projects have received high accolades and include forward-thinking plugins such as Amalgame, Regressif, Ephemere and Litote to name just a few.
