The web forum formerly known as Gearslutz unveiled its new name – Gearspace – to reposition the brand to be more inclusive. The forum is a resource for audio engineers, music producers, audio schools and organizations. It focuses on professional and hobbyist recording and aims to be an open platform for discussing and learning about audio recording gear and best practices.
“After nearly two decades, it feels great to move forward with a more progressive and inclusive name,” said Founder Jules Standen. “We’re certain our new name, Gearspace, will stand the test of time and provide a more all-encompassing platform for the pro audio industry. The change will affect the forum’s name, logo and URL. Gearspace will continue to offer the same audio-focused content and will strive to be the best online community possible for people of all genders and cultures.”
The forum serves as a point of reference for audio professionals, educators and hobbyists, alike. The new name will welcome a more diverse user base across the industries it serves. Since its inception in 2002, the forum has grown to more than 400,000 members, with over one million discussions and 13 million replies.
“This change has been in the works for many months,” added Standen. “We are all excited about this next chapter.”
The renamed site will go live this spring.
