Orlando - Oct 25, 2006 - Bob Katz, the inventor, author, mastering
engineer and president of Digital Domain, has been awarded a patent by the
United States Patent Office for his circuit design: "Process for Enhancing
the Existing Ambience, Imaging, Depth, Clarity and Spaciousness of Sound
Recordings." These processes, also called K-Stereo and K-Surround,
recover lost or amplify hidden ambience, space and imaging, and generate
stereo from mono signals without adding artificial reverberation.

several more nominations. Katz's book, "Mastering Audio: The Art and the Science" is widely recognized
by educators, producers, A&R executives and engineers in the recording industry.
