Hooke Audio Was Found On The Belief That Sounds Matters

(Novel concept, right?)

Technological advances in photo and video have enabled us to record our lives vividly through filters and advances in image processing. What about sound?

Mobile phones cannot record stereo audio. Currently we are recording our experiences in mono, when we actually experience them in stereo. Poor quality audio means that only half of the story is being told.

It’s time to enable our smartphones to record audio like we actually hear it.

Our Story

Hooke Audio was founded in 2014 by Anthony Mattana, who started his career in sound as a theatrical sound designer and composer. Cited by Live Design Magazine as “Young Designer to Watch,” Mattana is a professional at telling stories through sound in both large and small-scale productions. At the tender age of 25, determined to bring the professional audio tools he had access to in the theatre to smartphones, he invented Hooke Audio, a recording platform designed to change the way we record the world.
