Yvan Grabit

Steinberg Media Technologies GmbH
R&D Technical Leader
After a quiet childhood and youth in Pays de Gex—an area jammed between the French Jura mountain and Geneva—Yvan Grabit played in different brass bands as a drummer while completing an Engineering degree in Image Processing and computing at the Institut Supérieur d'Électronique de Paris. 
Grabit then researched at Fraunhofer IGD in Rostock for eight months, then moved to Paris and Cannes to work for Aérospatiale (now part of Thales Alenia Space) in satellite image processing as a developer and project manager. Not long after, Yvan decided to change his field of work from image processing to audio and began his career as a developer at Steinberg. 
He started in the Nuendo team, then developed different plug-ins, such as LM-4, The Grand and HALion with Charlie Steinberg, and took on the responsibility of developing plug-in integration in DAW, surround features, and VST-SDK (version 2 and later on version 3).
Today, he is the team leader of a research group that works in different fields like MIR, 3D/VR audio, restoration, Machine Learning, etc. As technical lead of VST, he promotes and maintains VST 3 and supports third-party developers.
Grabit continues to play drums, guitar, and piano in several music groups.
