iZotope’s unique Spire Studio product launches with the help of Cardinal Peak’s hardware engineering team

LAFAYETTE, Colo. — Cardinal Peak, a full-service engineering firm specializing in the development of Internet of Things (IoT) products, provided hardware engineering expertise to iZotope for their Spire Studio product. Spire Studio is used by musicians as a complete portable recording system, featuring professional sound quality and one-touch set-up.

“Cardinal Peak was a key contributor in turning our vision for Spire Studio into a physical product,” said iZotope co-founder and CEO Mark Ethier. “The industrial design of Spire Studio is unique and introduced hardware challenges that the Cardinal Peak hardware engineering team had to navigate and adjust to quickly. With their help, we were able to maintain the integrity of the user experience while balancing cost and functionality.”

“Our hardware engineering team worked closely with iZotope’s development team to conceptualize, design, and layout the electrical subsystems to meet the mechanical constraints and the demanding performance targets,” said Matt Brzezinski, Director of Hardware Engineering at Cardinal Peak. “We are thrilled to have played a part in the launch of Spire Studio and look forward to working with iZotope in the future.”

Spire Studio is now available for purchase on and at select retailers, and the integrated Spire recording app is available for free on iTunes.About iZotope Inc.
