Glitchmachines was established in 2005 by sound designer and musician Ivo Ivanov. During our first 5 years in business, we were focused on building handcrafted circuit-bent hardware instruments. We sold a limited number of units through boutique synth shops in California and custom made instruments for numerous artists and sound designers. In 2010, we shifted our focus to creative plugins and sound effects.

Our mission is to bring you the best in forward-thinking sound effects and unconventional audio software. Our vision is to push boundaries and go against trends in order to continue to innovate, all while keeping our prices affordable and retaining the highest possible quality in our specialized products. Our goal is to stay connected with our audience in order to make a meaningful impact on the creative communities with whom we fuel industry growth and technical advancement.



Founder and CEO Ivo Ivanov has worked as a sound designer and content provider with creative audio companies like Ableton, Native Instruments, SoundMorph, Twisted Tools and Tiptop Audio to name only a few. His forward-thinking sound design has been featured in countless sfx libraries, games, software plugins and multimedia productions. Ivo’s unconventional sounds and creative tools are used by some of the most notable game companies, post production facilities, recording studios and artists in the world.



French software developer Thomas Hennebert works closely with us to help create our plugin products. He originally established himself with plugin releases such as the critically acclaimed Eurydice, Bucephal, Gorgon, Danaides and Bow Echo and continues to release an impressive lineup of boutique processing software under his own brand name, Inear Display. His recent projects have received high accolades and include forward-thinking plugins such as Amalgame, Regressif, Ephemere and Litote to name just a few.
