We look forward to working with Sandro and further developing Studio 1 to unlock the full capability of our current and future products”.
Hudson added: “Studio1 has established a strong customer base with users of many other SDR hardware products. Studio 1 will continue to be available as a stand-alone product from WoodBoxRadio http://www.woodboxradio.com/studio1.html for the foreseeable future , but we also look forward to further developing Studio 1 to specifically benefit present and future owners of our products”

About Studio 1:
Studio1 was developed in Italy by SDR Applications S.a.s. and has hundreds of happy customers around the world.
Studio 1 is known for its user friendly stylish GUI, CPU efficiency and advanced DSP capabilities, including features not
available on other SDR software packages.
SDRplay limited is a UK company and consists of a small group of engineers with strong connections to the UK Wireless
semiconductor industry. SDRplay announced its first product, the RSP1 in August 2014
Of course, I believe this is a very good move for SDRplay. Studio 1 is a very well-respected application and, though I’ve never tested it myself, I’m very impressed with it’s interface. I’ve also received many positive comments about Studio 1 from Perseus owners.
This will give SDRplay a great platform to have native SDR applications for their current and future products. I’m sure they’ll continue to support and develop Studio 1 for all of its supported receivers:
- The Elad FDM-S1, FDM-S2
- Microtelecom Perseus
- RFspace SDR-IQ, SDR-14
- SRL QS1R
- Funcube Dongle
