Richie Hawtin and Pete Tong invest in cloud-based mastering startup
LANDR is a one-stop, artificially intelligent mastering system that ranges from $6 to $39 per month. While it doesn’t claim to beat the quality of a professional audio engineer, it’s worth noting that the company brought in fifty different audio and mastering professionals to refine its technology.
Now LANDR has attracted some of electronic music’s biggest names to its platform. Pete Tong, Richie Hawtin, Tiga, John Acquaviva, and Steve Angello are among the newest round of investors for the startup, which reached a total of $6.2 million in funding. YUL Ventures, Real Ventures and Guy Laliberté and Daniel Gauthier were also a part of the first round for the Montreal-based company, which only launched in May of 2014. While the impact of the platform remains to be seen, it certainly has the potential to transform the way amateur music creators refine their work.
