Warm Audio has announced it’s launching a new, Austin-based brand called 512 Audio and it is being distributed in Canada by Erikson Audio.

Dedicated to delivering professional gear built for creators, its first products are two XLR microphones一the Limelight and Skylight一 and a lineup of studio essentials for creating podcasts, livestreams, vocal recordings, and more. They are developed by the team behind Warm Audio’s classic-inspired microphones, preamps, guitar pedals, and more.

“Instead of focusing on the specs war, we thought about how audio gear would be used by people, what they want to create, and how they want to connect,” says Tommy Edwards, VP of Product Strategy for 512 Audio and Warm Audio. “512 Audio microphones and accessories are built to capture everything creators need and nothing they don’t. We specifically tuned the mics to focus on the frequencies that would deliver the most for the creators without any noise they don't need. We wanted to deliver the best of pro audio in a tailor-made, uncomplicated way.”

For its initial debut, 512 Audio is introducing five products built to help creators capture speech and vocals: the Limelight (Street Price $269 CDN) dynamic vocal XLR mic; the Skylight (Street Price $269 CDN)  large-diaphragm condenser XLR microphone; the 512-BBA Boom Arm (Street Price $110 CDN),; the Academy Headphones (Street Price $139 CDN) studio monitor headphones; and the Pop Professional Microphone Pop Filter (Street Price $55 CDN).

“Living and working in Austin we are in the heart of a creator culture, but regardless of where you are, creator content dominates what we listen to and watch,” adds Bryce Young, founder and CEO of 512 Audio and Warm Audio. “We all have that creator whose content connects with us, whether it’s in music, gaming, politics, faith or passion projects. 512 Audio was our way to build audio gear specifically for creators to make closer connections to their audiences."
