With a World record of over 30 consecutive Grammy nominations, last night Morten Lindberg and his label, 2L were finally recognised for all their hard work and dedication. We are so happy to be able to congratulate Morten, the 2L label and everyone involved on a truly well-deserved first Grammy Award win for Best Immersive Audio Album with Lux. It has been a long time coming and we are sure this is only the first of many more to come.
Ever since Morten began working with Auro-3D and we were able to use his productions in our demos, the emotional response elicited from listeners during these demos spoke for itself. With his knowledge of Immersive sound technology, Morten has been able to push the boundaries of possibility with what can be achieved in Immersive content creation. 2L was born out of a passion for high-fidelity audio. This, in combination with Morten’s creative expertise, has taken the Auro-3D technology and truly made an art form out of it. We want to thank Morten for his continued contributions both in recording and producing in Immersive sound. His work serves as a continued inspiration to engineers, producers and artists everywhere and sets a standard within the music industry and the evolution of Immersive sound.
