    LOS ANGELES, CA – March 5, 2013 – StudioFeed introduces SubPac, portable tactile audio technology that takes sound to the physical dimension through an innovative device that allows users to actually feel music. For use with any existing audio source, the high-fidelity SubPac allows music to be physically experienced by quietly transferring low frequencies directly to the body. Users experience the ‘boom’ of a kick drum, the warmth of an 808, the expression of a bassist, and the richness of soundscapes through a quiet and portable device. In line with StudioFeed’s community focus, SubPac will launch through Kickstarter on March 5, 2013, with early bird pricing set at $275. The formal launch will take place in Spring 2013. With offices in Toronto and Los Angeles, StudioFeed is a social venture that supports independent music through community engagement and technology development.

    “Without a doubt the most useful studio tool I have come across in many years.”
    – Adrian Sherwood (Warp, On-U Sound)

    SubPac is lightweight and versatile, and can be used in a seated or laying position. It works with any sound source (including Mp3 player, computer, mixing board, gaming console or musical instrument), is simple to operate, quiet to the outside world, and is used along with any headphones or external speaker system.

    SubPac transports the listener to a visceral ‘club’ or ‘live’ experience in the comfort of their home, or on the go. For the producer or DJ, it allows for more accurate monitoring of low frequencies in any studio setup. SubPac adds a new dimension to a variety of applications – including music, gaming, home theater, and music therapy. It is quiet, providing a full bass experience without hearing damage.

    “If you like bass, you’ll love the SubPac!”
    –  Stephan Bodzin (Herzblut) 

    SubPac is supported by a growing roster of respected members of the music community including:
    Adrian Sherwood • Stephan Bodzin • Daedelus • Decibel Festival • Dubspot • Rob Smith (RSD) • Hyperdub • !llmind • Kode9 • LA Film School • Mala • Pinch • Robbie Wilde • Scientist • Hank Shocklee • Tectonic Recordings • and more
