Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) March 03, 2014
TrackBoost, a technology company based in Indianapolis, IN, has announced the launch of a web-based application that allows musicians to automatically EQ and enhance their music for self-distribution.
The software - http://www.trackboost.com - is an alternative to professional audio mastering and adapts recorded music to play at its most optimal level, through the use of techniques similar to that of a professional audio engineer. The easy-to-use software opens up access to a technical service previously reserved for signed artists, or those with strong financial backing.
"Years ago, the music industry used to have a barrier to entry—musicians had to be signed by labels to produce a professional quality album. The music industry has changed dramatically. Everyone is recording and promoting their own work now. There are great tools out there already—but many of them require talent or training in audio software. We bring a unique level of professional sound quality to anyone who wants it, regardless of how much training they have," says TrackBoost co-founder Scott Stover.
The idea for TrackBoost came in April of 2013, when co-founder Kathryn Hedgepeth was on sabbatical from corporate life creating a short documentary film. She enlisted Stover, a trained Audio Engineer, to help her enhance the clarity of a legacy classical recording for the film. The two discussed the barrier to entry in audio editing, then spent a week sketching out and designing prototypes for TrackBoost. The software went into beta in July 2013, then launched in December.
Stover says, "Users have given us great feedback about TrackBoost and we already have musicians selling their work on iTunes. It's amazing working with such talented and entrepreneurial people. We're looking forward to a long commitment aimed at supporting musicians in producing their work.”
TrackBoost will have its formal industry launch at the SXSW Music Gear Expo, March 13-15, in Austin, TX.
