There is a strange resemblance of these products with SonicStage Mastering Studio. I guess the ‘SonicStage’ name brand was taken partly from Sonic Solutions’ SonicStudio; particularly the SSMS’s Stage Mastering seems to be an addition. For the fiscal year ended in March 1993 Sonic Solutions had revenues of $9.43 million and a profit of $1.21 million. In the fall of that year the company announced it would begin integrating Sony's higher-definition Super Bit Mapping CD audio technology into its products. The firm's equipment was being used by most major record companies, studios such as London's famed Abbey Road, and organizations such as the British Broadcasting Corporation. Sonic Solutions also cooperated with Sony with introducing ATRAC3 into their equipment in 2000. Not only was the 24 bit 96kHz recording of SSMS made possible by Sonic Solutions’ innovation, but it was in 1996 that the SonicStudio High-Density workstation was released, and Sony partnered with Sonic Solutions to use DSD in the system. SBM, 24 bit 192kHz, and the DSD (which requires SoundReality chip of Sony VAIOs) were all based on history of Sony Corp and Sonic Solutions. It was a long partnership. And it continued for a long time. Sonic and Sony’s relatively unknown relation. Sonic Studio’s homepage also has a honeycomb design (2016) and this is reflected in SonicStage.
