Splice, a New York, NY and Santa Monica, CA-based cloud-based platform for music creation, collaboration and sharing, raised $4.5m in Series A funding.
The round was led by True Ventures with participation from Scooter Braun, Tiësto, Steve Angello, AM Only, WME, Plus Eight Equity Fund LP, as well as existing investor Union Square Ventures.
Founded by entrepreneurs by Steve Martocci and Matt Aimonetti, Splice is a cloud-based platform for music creation, collaboration and sharing for artists of any skill level.
The company, which has raised $7.25m to date, today moved from private beta into open beta and introduced its latest product, the DNA Player, which helps artists visualize music’s source code.
Compatible with digital audio workstations like Ableton Live, FL Studio and Logic X, Splice operates as a private cloud-based studio and an online community. Using the private studio musicians can focus entirely on the creative process by syncing their projects with the cloud, keeping track of all changes and sharing them with collaborators from a detailed timeline. On the community side, musicians can share their work for others to remix, discover new artists to collaborate with, and showcase the story behind their music with the DNA Player.
