The story and the team
VirtuosaTM was first launched by the company
AudioSoft in 1997, as envisioned by its founder Francois-Xavier Nuttall.
VirtuosaTM was one of the very few pioneering jukeboxes in the early days of
music on the Internet. VirtuosaTM soon became very popular because of its
impressive benefits and its high quality programming. Several bundles were
made with important electronic equipment manufacturers. The community of users
grew exponentially until the year 2000, when the company changed its
focus and, as a consequence, decided to terminate the development of this product.
BUT, the team who first brought it to life could not stand letting it go like this.
Thanks to its tenacity and unconditional commitment to provide the highest
added value to consumers, it brought VirtuosaTM back to life in 2001 in a newly
formed team with additional members : The FunVibes Team. Firmly believing
in its leadership and vision, the FunVibes Team enabled this jukebox to stand up,
shine and live again for your enjoyment. This was probably one of the first phoenix stories
on the Internet. VirtuosaTM is back, STRONGER THAN EVER, and this
is why it has been renamed the VirtuosaTM Phoenix Edition !
We sincerely hope you enjoy using VirtuosaTM as much as we love developing it.
