Myxt is a San Francisco-based company that aims to change the way we play, organize, and share our music recordings. The company is made up of a small team of five individuals who are trying to make a big impact in the music industry by building an application and suite for managing music files, workflow, listening, reviewing, sharing, and annotation. The service is designed for digital creators, their collaborators, and close-knit fans.
The company was founded by Chris Wetherell and Sheena Pakanati. Chris is a musician and an early engineer at Google who started the popular Google Reader app used by millions worldwide. He then went on to work at Twitter as the lead in implementing its Retweet feature. Chris also started Thing Labs, Avocado Software, and was most recently the chief product officer at Tierra. Sheena, on the other hand, is Stripe’s fourth employee who helped lead the efforts to build their API, dashboard, subscription management products, and first expansion into an international market. Sheena was also a co-founder at Mockingbird, an online wireframing tool, and co-created Spoke, a popular open-source peer-to-peer texting tool.
Myxt Seed Funding
Myxt recently announced that they raised $2 million in Seed funding, which was supported by Accel and Quiet Capital. The company intends to use the funds to develop its centralized audio workplace and expand its growing community of creators. Myxt has also announced the launch of its audio file management platform for creators to stream, collaborate, and discover new insights on their library.
After testing its beta with musicians, producers, and managers for the last two years, Myxt is introducing its solution for audio professionals. The platform provides storage and organization built specifically for audio, including WAV support and time-stamped commenting. Sharing features are also available to make it easy to collaborate with others on a project or engage with fans on social media, including an embedded video export tool. Myxt also offers creative AI tools, such as reference track mastering and auto-generated lyrics.
Myxt is available on the web, iOS, and Android devices. The service is designed to help digital creators and their collaborators manage their music files more efficiently and effectively. With Myxt, users can easily store, organize, and share their music recordings with others, collaborate on projects, and engage with their fans on social media. The company is poised to make a big impact in the music industry, and with the recent Seed funding, they are well-positioned to continue to grow their community of creators and users.
