The Endless Music-Making Journey.
We’ve always been on a mission to help artists sculpt and perform sound; to help electronic music makers lose themselves on an endless music-making journey. Ever since the iconic Bass Station back in 1993, we’ve kept on playing our part, shaping the sound of electronic music. Maybe even music culture itself. From the ubiquitous Launchpad that has seen well over a billion YouTube views, to synthesizers behind the signature sounds of a constantly evolving musical landscape, we want to empower the creative minds that are shaping the music and art of tomorrow. We get that making music takes time. It’s a journey, and we’re focused on making that journey easy to start, yet endless in its possibilities. Your studio is your space to escape. To noodle, geek-out and play. To explore and lose yourself. With that comes a love for variety. The more tools we can bring together, the more immersive your space will be. So we embrace other innovators in the music tech space. Many we’re proud to call our friends. Working closely with Ableton (for over a decade now), Ampify, Elektron, Roland, Korg, Splice, Melodics and many more, all we want is for your creative space to be the most inclusive, cohesive and creative possible. And we're not alone in all of this. We have seven sister brands focussed on the same thing, but in different ways.
We’re going to build a great place to work by embracing the diverse foundations of the world of audio to nurture our talent and build a culture of inclusion at Focusrite – that world includes you. We’re going to lead by example in removing barriers to creativity by developing safe and positive environments for people of all gender identities, knowing that our learning and hard work will be its own reward and using our significant platform to thought-lead and raise others up.
We’re promoting a culture where the LGBTQIA+ community feel they are welcome, safe and positively represented, because at Focusrite they truly are. We’re going to empower creativity within and advocate for visibility of the global LGBTQIA+ music community, including our team members, customers, and collaborators.
We’re going to cultivate an equitable culture –internally and outwardly. To understand the nuances of racial inequality, we need to share and learn. To create opportunities and stamp out discrimination, we need to strengthen and grow. To offset bias and create true equity, we need to uncover and improve. To truly remove barriers to creativity in racial and ethnic minority groups, we need to inspire and educate. We’re going to advocate for marginalized groups and amplify their voices.
