Effects - Tech 21 - EBS - M-Audio - Red Witch

B. Andrew Barta launched Tech 21 in midtown Manhattan and introduced his unique invention to the world -- the SansAmp. It was, in fact, the culmination of something he simply wanted for his own personal use. As a performing musician with an electronics background, and whose “day job” was repairing, modifying and customizing amplifiers, Andrew had the expertise -- and determination -- to make his vision a reality.
Ironically, Andrew never intended on becoming a manufacturer. He initially tried selling his technology to some of the major manufacturers. But they weren’t able to foresee the potential and how much impact the SansAmp would eventually have. (Not so secretly, we are delighted no one bought the idea!)
Unable to abandon his idea, Andrew had to set out on his own. Although this kind of product had never before existed, it took a surprisingly short amount of time to gain acceptance from players. All they had to do was hear it.

Tech 21 pioneered the direct recording movement and created an entirely new category of signal processing. The revolutionary SansAmp tube amplifier emulator was the first device to enable musicians to dial in monster tones and patch them directly to a studio mixer or stage PA. Finally, it was possible to get stunning, consistent tones without futzing for hours and hours to find that elusive ‘sweet spot.’ Instead, the 100% analog SansAmp delivered all of its mammoth sounds from a pocket-sized pedal.


Since 1988 EBS Sweden AB has been designing and manufacturing professional equipment for bass players. The idea and concept for EBS is to develop and build innovative musical equipment geared towards professional users. 


M-Audio is one of the most revered names in music computer interface and studio integration solutions, keyboard and controller products, and essential musical hardware from microphones to studio monitors.

M-Audio was founded in 1988 under the name of Midiman. The company was originally engaged in designing software and hardware solutions designed to address the challenges of connecting MIDI, audio, and computers together in a system in order to facilitate the composition and production of electronically-based music.

In 2000, MIDIman debuted the name “M-Audio” for their latest line of audio products. They enjoyed consistent growth from both the MIDI interface and audio hardware categories. In 2002, the first of the famous Oxygen series keyboards hit the market, establishing the important new category of portable keyboard controller.

The company continued to expand, with an ever-growing product line distinguished by sophisticated engineering with an emphasis on versatility and usability. M-Audio now offers state-of-the-art products in a wide range of categories that serve both the amateur and professional musical markets, including MIDI interfaces, keyboard controllers, drum machines, recording monitors and subwoofers, headphones, and microphones.
