Shaping the Future of Music Technology since 1931Building on a legacy of more than 88 years of groundbreaking technological advances at the studios – from the creation of stereo and recording techniques such as Artificial Double Tracking (ADT), to the blueprint for the modern recording console and more - Abbey Road Red is our open innovation department. Its purpose is to support the endeavours of the brightest music tech entrepreneurs, researchers and developers and help introduce the next set of universally adopted recording technologies into the music business.
We run a unique music tech incubation programme that is unmatched in its bespoke nature and reach, the only one of its kind in Europe and the first when launched in 2015. We collaborate with the brightest minds in academic research; we are committed to sharing knowledge and empowering the industry; and we are pioneering and exploring the adoption of Spatial Audio in the recording chain. The white lab coats are long gone at Abbey Road, but the pioneering spirit of adventure is still as present as ever.

Abbey Road Red launches- ‘Red Turntables’ – Week One RecapLast week at Abbey Road Red, we launched our Turntables one to one remote mentoring sessions for all music tech start-ups out there . We have had an amazing response with a huge amount of sign ups and are grateful to friends in our network for sharing the initiative so broadly.
Last Thursday, we kicked off speaking to founders and technologists from the UK to the US, Portugal, Russia and South America discussing both very new ideas and the challenges of continued growth in this environment. We covered everything from source separation to niche label services, novel plug-in processing techniques, live streaming, adaptive music, mobile multi-tracks and more. It was uplifting to see such a breadth of ideas, talent and optimism!
This week we’re looking forward to round two, or should I say our second spin or spin II. Slots are filling up fast, so make sure you sign up here, if you’re interested in chatting with us about your idea, start-up or scale-up.
