Speaking on the acquisition of Isabel Garvey, the Managing Director of Abbey Road said: âOver the past year we have seen 100% of studio sessions requiring some level of remote access and Audiomovers name has been mentioned several times.
âWe believe the shift to remote music production is here to stay and we want to be part of this new world, supporting musical creation in all its forms, no matter where the creators are located. She continues, âIt is a natural extension of Abbey Road, allowing creativity beyond the physical building. “

We have designed Audiomovers for those who need audio excellence, which is exactly what Abbey Road is all about. We have an ambitious and innovative roadmap and, thanks to the Abbey Road team, we can become the global choice for remote audio collaboration. “
