Founded in 1990 as Jupiter Systems by, Dr Harold “Andy” Hildebrand, a former research scientist. Over the course of his studies at the Sheperd School of Music he invented a ground breaking new looping system that would be the basis for one of his most signature plugins. Almost immediately he created a number of quality software plugins as the brand grew, including in 1997, 'Auto-Tune,' a program that corrects pitch vocals.
Auto Tune became a phenomenon, becoming one of the companies most popular products and making the newly formed Antares, a staple in plugin production. What's even more spectacular is that it offically became the largest selling plugin of all time
