"I have found forte to be robust and powerful, and it doesn't fall over if the guitarist looks at it sideways. I can recommend it to any keyboard player wanting to go "virtual" on stage."

History & Philosophy


Brainspawn was founded in 1998 to publish a series of DirectX audio plugins, including a spectrum analyzer and other test-oriented plugins.  In 2002, the company introduced forte™ 1.0 as the world's first audio application designed specifically for live performance of virtual instruments (VST plugins).  Over the years, forte™ users have grown to include touring rock bands, TV and film score composers, Broadway shows, circuses, and classrooms.  Brainspawn has progressed by learning from customers and striving to make forte™ the trusted choice for live performance.

What's with the hot-tub?  It's an old joke about how our products were conceived and possibly the future above-ground annex to a secret underground lair.
