Who is Dove Audio?
Dove Audio is a new synthesiser company set up by myself, Paula Maddox, to bring to life my new synthesiser ideas and concepts.
“Purity, Integrity and Love” what do you mean?
In a world full disappointment, backstabbing and hatred I wanted to create the reverse;
“Purity” – We will always do our best to get the most pure sound and build quality we can from our designs, this includes using high quality components.
“Integrity” – We treat people how we want to be treated. We value our customers and our friends, if you have a problem with our product then we have a problem that we will work with you to solve.
“Love” – We love our products and customers. To spread our love further and to help rid the world of hate, 10% of profit from every sale will go to an anti hate charity based in the country that the order originates from.
Who is Paula Maddox (a brief history) ?
I have been around the world of synthesisers for nearly 30 years. I started a company called “Modulus” back in 2000 to bring some of my projects to the commercial world. The Monowave was the first commercial product;
However not content with that I wanted to create a polyphonic version with more features, and so teamed up with Hartmann Music and the Tempest concept was born;
Sadly Hartmann Music ceased trading shortly after and the concept was put to one side.
I then began working on DSP based synthesisers and used the SoundArt Chameleon to create the Monowave II, which took the Monowave into DSP terrain, adding a third oscillator, digital delay and numerous other features, but keeping as close to the sound of the original as possible. Paula then created Phoenix which was a 6 voice version of the Monowave II, but replacing the delay with a chorus. Both which share a stunning virtual ladder filter.
My next creations were going back to my roots with hardware, and GorF was born after encouragement from my friends;
It was about this time that pocket synthesisers and gadgets started to become popular, so hot on the success of GorF I launched Tron and Zira;
From there I went on to form what is now Modal Electronics in 2013 and to create the Modal 002, a truly powerful polyphonic hybrid synthesiser with many features never before seen on a synthesiser;
002 was very well received and praised for the quality of the sound. From there I wanted to bring the sound of the 002 to a better price point but also to integrate it with the world of Modular synthesisers and the Modal 001 was born;
At this point I began working with a friend and together, as part of Modal, we created the Modal 008, the first truly analogue polysynth for several decades. Once again with a host of never before seen features;
From there rack mount versions of both 002 and 008 were created, 002R and 008R;
I left Modal at the end of March 2017, but now after a break, I’m back with new ideas and a fresh start with Dove Audio as my company name, with a firm belief in the three keywords of the company; Purity, Integrity and Love.
