Soundwave Research Labs co-founder Hugh Tripp inspects a new ribbon microphone invented at the lab.

Soundwave Research Laboratories Inc., makers of Crowley and Tripp ribbon microphones, announced that it has filed multiple patent applications for U.S. and foreign coverage of its proprietary acoustic technology used in its advanced products. "Acoustic Transducer Arrangements" and "Composite Acoustic Transducers" are the titles of two new applications made by the company for its patent-pending ribbon microphone technology and thin-film medical imaging sensors.

The patent filings, the contents of which will be published significantly ahead of the statutory 18-month waiting period, cover a wide variety of discoveries and inventions in the fields of ribbon and thin-film sound devices. The technologies that were invented at Soundwave Research Laboratories include carbon nanotube ribbon microphones, extremely high-strength ribbon processes and significant improvements in the consistency, purity and quality of the recorded signal.

"We are committed to advancing the state-of-the-art in microphone technology through our materials research program, and through our work with musicians, producers and engineers who have contributed greatly to the innovation process," remarked Soundwave's president, Robert J. Crowley. "Now that ribbon microphones have re-entered the mainstream, it is time to leave old notions behind. Our recent filings reflect that we now have pending patents in the U.S. and in Europe and Asia in accordance with the Patent Cooperation Treaty."
