About Tone Projects

Based in Copenhagen Denmark, Tone Projects is a boutique audio plug-in developer creating world class products with finely tuned character and uncompromising musical & technical quality.

Who We Are

All Tone Projects products are developed by Rune Lund-Hermansen, often in close collaboration with talented producers, engineers, and DSP specialists. Our goal is to create original high-end audio gear that inspires and empowers artists to make great sounding music. We aspire to create tools that stand the test of time and we’re proud of the fact that several of our 15 year old products remain the preferred choice by many artists today.

Our Sound

You’ll find no standard off-the-shelf algorithms in any key part of our plug-ins. Every time you insert a Tone Projects plug-in you’ll be inserting the culmination of exhaustive research and experimentation, countless hours of listening tests, and careful fine-tuning. We typically spend more than a year refining our products, but as they say, good things come to those who wait obsess over tiny details.
