Xvive was started in 2014 (as Xvive Audio) by the husband-and-wife team of Nancy Lee and Fischer Mao. At that time, Fischer wanted to produce a state-of-the-art analog delay pedal. Howard Davis (designer of the legendary Deluxe Memory Man) convinced him to resurrect the classic MN3005 bucket brigade chip. This component had been at the heart of many great delay pedals, but unfortunately was no longer in production. Xvive Audio fixed that with their first product: theMN3005. Soon after, Xvive introduced a line of effect pedals in collaboration with German guitarist Thomas Blug. These included theW3 Memory Analog Delay—designed by Davis and including the new MN3005 chip.
In 2016, Xvive entered the wireless market with theU2 Guitar Wireless System. This became a huge international hit for the brand, and established Xvive as one of the world leaders of wireless. It also paved the way for other wireless systems, designed for microphones (U3), in-ear monitors (U4), MIDI (MD1) and audio for video (U5).
