Music startup Audiu – which aims to revolutionise the way musicians give and receive feedback – has been awarded ‘Best Music Project 2017′ at last month’s Sonar+D technology conference.
Presented by Slush Music at Sonar’s tech offshoot, Sonar+D, the startup has been praised for its innovative approach to gamifying the act of giving feedback, with its collaborative and networking features being described as a cross between Google Drive and LinkedIn for musicians.
Founded by Ed Worboys and Mike Goodfellow in 2014, Audiu offers a revolutionary suite of tools and resources to help musicians learn, improve and grow by the exchange of constructive feedback, either by its innovative Feedback Stream, Pro Marketplace or the recently announced Feedback Sessions Live.
Audiu has announced a raft of new partnerships in recent months with music production and performance hardware and software specialists Native Instruments, online music distributor TuneCore, drumming software experts Melodics and premium sample creators HelloSamples and Prime Loops.
Audiu will host their first Feedback Sessions Live event on July 27th. The bimonthly interactive online event will see Audiu inviting top artists to offer bite-sized feedback, opinions and advice on users’ tracks. The first event takes place with techno don WHYT NOYZ offering community members his thoughts on their tracks. His favourite tracks from the session will win some fantastic prizes from Native Instruments, including a Maschine Studio.
Audiu has also just released its free iOS and Android app so users can take the Audiu community wherever they go. The app provides users with the ability to listen to the Feedback Stream, leave feedback and ratings, earn Rep Points and connect with like-minded users, friends, colleagues and collaborators.
