Our story

My dad, Paul Titchener and his cofounder, Mark Kaplan launched their first audio software product in 1997. Paul was the digital signal processing (DSP) expert and Mark helped package the new DSP tech into something people could use. DSP-FX (the predecessor to FxSound and DFX) was awarded Most Innovative Product of the Year by Electronic Music Magazine.

For over 20 years, Paul and Mark helped bring high quality sound to millions of people. And without emptying out our customer's pockets in the process.

When my dad unexpectedly passed in 2016, I began working for FxSound, and soon after I bought out our partners and took on the CEO role. While I'm not the audio wizard my dad was, it's my aim to see my dad's vision through.

You shouldn't need a master's degree and a wallet overflowing with cash to get great sound. For too long, high fidelity audio has been a luxury for the few. It's our job to bring high quality digital sound to the masses.

That's why in 2022 we decided to make FxSound completely free and unrestricted. If you'd like to help support new development on FxSound, you can donate here.
