Zplane: Science In The Studio
Zplane was founded in 2000 by Alexander Lerch, Tim Flohrer and Martin Schwerdtfeger with the intention of being a pure business-to-business company.

Zplane’s research explores state-of-the-art music processing and analysis technology, such as artifact-free time stretching and pitch shifting. Their music analysis technology extracts high-level musical information from the music signal, like tempo, rhythm, melody and key. Then there’s the commercial side, with plugins like Vielklang, which create natural-sounding harmonies from monophonic sounds, allowing a soloist to become a choir in an instant.
