Minnetonka Audio Software traces its roots to the software engineering services firm, Minnetonka Software, Inc (MSI). Formed in 1986, MSI provided custom software development services to a diverse client base, including medical, imaging, security and audio industries.
Through its relationships in the audio industry, MSI delivered audio drivers, plug-ins and editing applications to many OEM customers. In 1989, MSI developed the first professional-level graphical audio editing software for PC platforms, incorporating many innovative features that set the standards in the industry.
Minnetonka Audio Software, Inc. (MASI) was formally incorporated in 1998 with the charter to produce professional quality digital audio editing products. As the technology evolved, MASI maintained a position as a technology leader, and was the first to produce a multi-track surround sound editor, Mx51. The discWelder series of products, for authoring DVD-Audio discs, continued the company’s lead in supporting high-resolution and surround audio formats. The discWelder product line spans the diverse needs of both the professional and the mass-market home user.
MASI continues its industry leadership with the development of the SurCode series of audio encoding products to support industry-standard formats including Dolby E, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Pro Logic II, DTS and DTS-HD. SurCode has quickly become the “go to” brand of ready to use, surround sound technology, as plug-ins for popular workstations such as Pro Tools, Nuendo, Pyramix, Fairlight, Avid and Final Cut Pro in addition to stand-alone software. MASI is a leading provider of pro audio OEM solutions, and all their technologies are available for Windows, Mac OS and Linux, along with most all workstation platforms and operating environments.
