Splice, a New York, NY-based platform for music creators, raised $2.75m in seed funding.
The round was led by Union Square Ventures with participation from True Ventures, Lerer Ventures, SV Angel, First Round Capital, Code Advisors, Rob Wiesenthal, David Tisch and Seth Goldstein. In conjunction with the funding, Andy Weissman, partner at Union Square Ventures, will join Splice’s board of directors.
Co-founded by Steve Martocci, who previously co-founded GroupMe, and Matt Aimonetti, formerly of LivingSocial and Sony PlayStation, Splice provides musicians with a platform to create, save and share music via collaboration and version control tools, which add to currently used digital audio workstations (such as Ableton Live).
Currently in private beta, Splice has been working with a select number of artists spanning diverse genres including electronic dance music (EDM), hip hop and rock to get feedback on the initial product.
The company has just opened up a community site, blog and a waitlist for the private beta at www.splice.com and plans to open an office in Los Angeles, CA, soon.
