LANDR Adds $6.2M From Rapper Nas, Richie Hawtin, WMG For Cloud Based Audio Mastering
Cloud based audio post-production platform LANDR has raised $6.2 million in funding from rapper and record producer Nas, HDGL (Cirque Du Soleil founders Guy Laliberté and Daniel Gauthier), Warner Music Group (WMG), Plus Eight Private Equity (DJ's Richie Hawtin, Tiga, John Acquaviva, and Pete Tong), Real Ventures, YUL Ventures and others.
The company also announced the launch of its newest mastering engine ‘Ionian 1.0’. To date LANDR has mastered more than 1.2 million tracks for 250,000 users thanks to strategic partnerships with TuneCore, CD Baby, InGrooves, and Alibaba’s distribution platform in China, Xiami.
"Technology has allowed for more creators to be birthed. More and more music is being made but certain parts of the process don’t have consumer tools to help make fine and crisp finishes," says rapper and producer Nas. "I believe LANDR is an affordable groundbreaking technology to help musicians make music that has a quality finish like any major label artist with a budget."
