About this project

SoundBridge is a team of musicians and audio engineers who have partnered to develop state of the art music production technology that emphasizes mobility, connectivity and ease of use. After 3 years of testing and gathering user data, we spent the last year working hard to develop the first version of our Music Production Suite - including the DAW, drum machine, effects, virtual collaboration and an entire curriculum for effectively teaching music theory, music production, and SoundBridge in tandem. Our music production software is completely free and we intend to keep it that way. We are very close to releasing SoundBridge 1.0 and all we need is your help for the last big push. We are aiming for a June 2017 launch date. Whether you are a professional, just getting started, or if you simply love music and want to empower artists and producers, back us today!

 

In our effort to democratize access to musical production, we know the tools are not enough, and knowledge is the key. We have developed and tested an entire curriculum for effectively teaching music theory, music production, and SoundBridge in tandem. Our course is comparable in quality to those offered by the top online music production schools - such as DubSpot, Pyramid and Sonic Academy. Instead of paying over $4000 for a course + hundreds of dollars on required software, by backing SoundBridge, you are not only helping us achieve our goals, but you are also purchasing the most affordable high quality music production course in the world.

 

SoundBridge is a full featured Digital Audio Workstation that emphasizes mobility, connectivity and ease of use. We’ve optimized the user experience and made the application high resolution with 5 color schemes, added channel strip & plugin presets, a swing tool, advanced mixer routing, complex automation, randomizers, and much more! SoundBridge is an omni-recording experience, transcending desktop, mobile, and in-browser recording environments. Our online collaboration engine allows you to seamlessly connect, communicate and transfer data, among an unlimited number of collaborators per project.

 

 

 

 

 

Our deep integration with SkyTracks.io allows you to seamlessly connect with other users and collaborate productively.

 

 

 

RitMix is a powerful drum machine containing a 16-step sequencer, MPC-style pad performance section, extensive editing capabilities, and a solid built-in mixer. It consolidates the most essential functionality needed to make complex rhythms on-the-fly and plenty of insert FX, humanizers, and randomization algorithms.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

1) We may not have the software 100% bug-free at launch. We may require a couple months after launch to have every bug fully fleshed out. We will make it as easy as possible for users who detect bugs to let us know, so we can prioritize and work on them them accordingly.

2) If there are a lot of backers attending the virtual version of SoundBridge Academy, we may have to break people into groups and delay some groups throughout the summer. Other than these risks, we are very confident we can deliver on our promises on or before the deadline.
