Despite the many challenges, music tech startups continue to appear in a wide variety of forms from software to services to hardware. Recent noteworthy accomplishments include a Pando Choice Award for Artiphon, Songvice's graduation from Amsterdam's Rockstart accelerator and a spot in the V2Venture pitch competition for Shuttersong.
Artiphon Wins Pando Choice Award
Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1 with Apple GarageBand
The Artiphon is a unique instrument employing an iPhone that bills itself as the "first serious instrument for the professional mobile musician."
By that they seem to mean iPhone musician or mobile app musician cause the acoustic guitar is just one example of a highly mobile instrument that's served musicians quite well over the years.

According to The Next Web they are:
"targeting the electronic dance music sector, where the cost barrier to entry has reduced massively in recent years but experience is still valuable when trying to produce a hit track."
Songvice recently graduated from the Rockstart accelerator in Amsterdam.
