OUR HISTORY

OUR HISTORY

AudioLot was founded in 1999 on the basic principle of Buy the right gear the first time, instead of purchasing something you will quickly outgrow and end up selling for pennies on the dollar. Founder Joshua Aaron has used this principle as the guiding force throughout the growth and evolution of AudioLot from a small recording studio in the basement of his first house, to a boutique firm offering analog gear, to the full service studio consulting firm it has become today.

Starting on the piano at age 9, Joshua had an instant love for music, and is now proficient in numerous instruments. He has written multiple albums, co-written countless songs with other artists, and performed all over the world. Fortunate enough to make music with some of the biggest names in the industry and in some of the best studios around the world, Joshua wanted to learn everything he could about all facets of the industry. He watched and learned, asking questions along the way, and was soon tasked by a variety of record labels to bring in artists, that were being considered for signing, in order to evaluate their performance in the studio and make final recommendations.

The contacts and friendships Joshua made over the years, as a musician and engineer, opened the doors for him to explore new relationships with the incredible inventors, engineers, and manufacturers creating the gear. This behind the scenes look, and the conversations with these visionaries, gave him a a unique and in-depth knowledge of what it took to make the gear and the thought process that led to its development. As a lifelong student of the art of music, graduated to the next level of understanding, AudioLot was born from Joshua's desire to share this collective knowledge and expertise with the world.

In the coming years, as the industry moved away from analog and into the digital realm, AudioLot refocused its efforts to meet the needs of the industry. Realizing that up and coming engineers could greatly benefit from his years of experience, Joshua expanded AudioLot, introducing pro audio consulting. The enjoyment he received from speaking with eager engineers building their first studio, or seasoned ones expanding their arsenal, was far greater than selling a piece of gear. To date, AudioLot's consulting services have benefited studios across the globe, from Alaska to Australia. But, it couldn't stop there.

Engineers of studios small and large were looking for more than the knowledge of, and specs on, certain gear. They needed somewhere to put it. Joshua realized he could recommend a great microphone but if the room was deficient, the client would never experience the true magic of that microphone. And so, the demand for AudioLot to become more involved in the creation of studios gave rise to custom recording studio design/build solutions. Working with amazing architects and acousticians, Joshua put together an elite team that specialized in the conception and creation of unique studio designs for even the most challenging spaces. After many years, AudioLot proudly remains a leader in the pro audio industry able to provide a wide array of services to its amazing clientele.
