Meet ArtistConnect

Hey Everyone,

Want your sound to get heard by billboard artists?

Meet Artist Connect, a platform where you can share your loops with Billboard producers and collaborate with top music creators worldwide!

ArtistConnect Website: https://artistconnect.de

Here’s how it works: Billboard producers on the hunt post "opportunities" on the ArtistConnect site, essentially requests for what they need in their production. As a loop supplier, you can upload your loops or one-shot samples directly to the site and offer them to these producers. This has already sparked some fascinating collaborations! Plus, you can independently offer your loops and samples as sets, attracting even more producer interest.

The deal is straightforward and fair: users retain 100% of their earnings from song placements and beat sales for their compositions.

In the near future, we’d like to make this connection directly accessible from our website, allowing Audiotool users to upload their loops straight from Audiotool. But first, we want to test it out together with you.

Please let us know if services like these offered by ArtistConnect are interesting for you: https://forms.gle/4BwJNNaEf353YbDi7

Have fun!

NEW EPISODE: Cooking with naswalt II | Delay is Cheating

Audiotool Sound Kitchen | Cooking with naswalt II |

In the second episode of Cooking with naswalt, our Audiotool cuisine chef tackles our delays and shows us how he enhances his tracks with them, making them sound fuller.

Whether this constitutes cheating, as he provocatively suggests, we'll leave that up for debate. We wish you great entertainment with this episode and some interesting insights.

Sound Crafting with Cal Lycus | Episode 3.1 | Levelling a rough Mix

Welcome to Audio Alchemy Episode III part 1 | Levelling a rough mix with Pink Noise

After Cal Lycus dedicated the last episode to mastering a track with Audiotool, there were requests to also cover something about mixing. We've followed this request and are starting a multi-part episode about the art of mixing with Audiotool.

In the first part, Cal discusses leveling using pink noise. Never heard of this method before? Well, honestly, neither have I. But that doesn't make it any less interesting. So watch and be amazed.

Big thanks to hurakan for allowing Cal to use his track  multitude .

Enjoy the ride and stay tuned for more tutorials to come.

Join the Audio Engine Open Beta!

We have an update for you, however we need your help with it.

We are inviting you to join the open beta. Help us refine the core component of the upcoming Studio version: the Audio Engine.

Already using the Booster? Do you know your tracks well and have a good ear for subtle differences in sound? Do you want to play MIDI instruments with low-latency?

You are the perfect candidate to join the open beta and share your feedback.

Join the Open Beta -> (Sign Up closed for now)

Note: There will be future chances to join the next phases of the open beta.


What’s in it for you?

Experiment with the first key piece of the upcoming Studio and share your feedback to shape the future of Audiotool.

What is the Audio Engine?

The Audio Engine is the core of the production Studio and handles all audio processing. Basically, it transforms what you see in your desktop and timeline into what you hear during playback. By default, the Audio Engine runs in the browser. The Booster application – well – gives you a performance … boost.

What do you need?

  • You must be able to download and install a new Booster application to use the new Audio Engine in the current Studio.
  • Access to a MIDI device (like a piano or controller) to test the input latency.
  • Your email address for us to contact you.

What do we need help with?

  • Identify differences in sound comparing the current and new version
  • Play instruments with MIDI input (or the virtual keyboard) and share feedback on latency
  • Test performance using your projects


A message to you

Audiotool was born out of the belief that everyone should be able to create music collaboratively and independently, regardless of their financial means. This will not change.

We‘ll become an open platform supporting third-party plugins and are trying our best to be as compatible as possible with other DAWs to allow producers moving between ecosystems. With that step we‘ll also introduce options to buy or subscribe to content, services or special features, but today’s features and more will always be free.

Understanding Our Technical Evolution

Our journey has been fueled by passion and innovation. Since our restart in September 2022, we've been hard at work. We’ve raised a Pre-Seed financing round that enabled us to hire a very talented team and have since been in the process of taking Audiotool to the next level.

Our tech is getting a restart too. The current platform, though mostly functional, is built on older, increasingly deprecated technologies that make any seemingly simple change difficult. This first beta is one piece of the puzzle in launching a new version with the features you love but with better performance, easier use, lower latency, and most importantly a foundation on which to release regular updates.


We hope this update addresses some of your concerns and underlines our commitment to continuously improving Audiotool. The discussions in the community around recent events haven’t escaped our attention. We will address these in a future statement. We are excited to let you take a sneak peak at some of the new things to come. It's an honor to have you as a part of this journey, because your feedback is crucial for this next big step!

Inspectre "Aliens" | Remix Contest | Winners

Inspectre announces the winners of the "Aliens" Remix Contest

Last week, our first remix contest since the lifting of the sample length restriction came to an end. We teamed up with the Berlin-based band Inspectre, who provided us with the stems of their track "Aliens". And you took advantage of this opportunity.

Nearly 50 awesome submissions made it difficult for the Inspectre guys to make a decision. As a result, instead of one, they chose two tracks that made it onto their upcoming EP. And they are: Inspectre - Aliens [Jays Mix Chapter #01] #short by JayFK and Inspectre - Aliens (Mr. Outside Remix) by Mr. Outside Congratulations from our side.

All that's left is for us to thank Inspectre for taking the time to listen to and evaluate all the remixes. We wish you all the best for your future career.

And of course, our heartfelt thanks to all of you for once again raising the bar for the delivered quality. You are a blast.

Stay tuned. We're already working on the stems for the next contest.

Update: You can now record your sets in Mix

Good news for the users of our DJ tool Mix!

We've added the ability to record mixes! You can now record your sets and share them on platforms such as Mixcloud or Soundcloud.

A major part of this feature is protecting our creator's music, specifically the tracks that do no have downloads allowed. This means that while you can play all of audiotool's tracks in your mixes, but 'non-downloadable' tracks will not be available during recording.

To break it down:

  • When preparing to record a set, make sure the tracks you want to use are marked with a check mark in the Trackslist section.
  • During recording, attempting to play a 'non-downloadable' track will simply bring up a reminder on the player to say it can't be played. Just load another track to continue. Recording will not be interrupted.
  • If you want to find your music in recorded DJ mixes, set the tracks to Downloadable. ;)
  • Lastly for DJs convenience, a full tracklist will be shown after recording is finished, make sure to give the artists credit!

We also opened a new topic for sharing mixes:

We wish you lots of fun with the new feature!

Audiotool Summer Games | Winners

Hurray, we are excited to present to you the three final winners of the first Audiotool Summer Games. These past ten weeks have been thrilling and intense, with results that once again showed us the talent within our community. Thank you very much for the numerous high-quality and original submissions. You are the best.

Let's start with 3rd place:

#3 Amp7070

He managed to leave his mark on every challenge he participated in. Rather than simply completing the task, he infused it with his unique touch, making it his own. Particularly noteworthy, from our perspective, is his winning track from the Empty Timeline Challenge. Not only did he solve the task with technical know-how, but he also delivered a mega cool track that leaves no doubt about his compositional talent.

#2 Lavalamp

It has always been clear that Lavalamp is a highly talented young user. But we have the impression that here, at the Summer Games, he was able to truly surpass himself. Each of his submissions is full of musicality and creativity without losing heart even in the face of abstract challenges.

#1 retro

For a few weeks now, it has become clear that someone here knows what they're doing. He delivered one banger after another and even managed to win one of the two extra challenges. We were already aware of his abilities, but here he really showed what he's capable of. Congratulations to all of you. We look forward to meeting you in person in Cologne on November 25th and officially presenting you with your prizes.

Thank you all very much <3

November 25: Meetup & Party in Cologne

Save the date for a Meetup on 25th November in Cologne!

After this amazing experience in Los Angeles, it quickly became clear that we want to do more of these types of events. As we have hinted at in a few places, we now want to invite our European Audiotool Crew to meet with us and celebrate 13 years of Audiotool music. As luck would have it, Dublab has a branch in Cologne alongside its headquarters in LA and is once again excited to join us for the whole event.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our studio in downtown Cologne with a program similar to the one in LA, featuring DJs, live acts, and even rappers. And you are not mistaken in your assumption: once again, we will need beats from you. So be ready.

Since the capacity of our studio is limited, we would need your advance registration. You can do that here: https://bit.ly/AudiotoolMeetup2511

CLOSED: Audiotool Summer Games | Round 10 | Frigolito

Dear community, participants and observers,

The Summer Games are now entering their final round. After enjoying some interesting sound experiments and grand pianos in Round 9, Frigolito now presents a final fun challenge.

For this, he went to freesound.org and randomly searched for a sample. He had to take the first one that met our requirements. You can watch the detailed video of this process here https://youtu.be/apLm9OG_w9M

Make a track using this sample and have a chance to win great prizes.

Challenger's Note: The audio file does not need to contribute as actual audio. For instance, it could be used as the sidechain input of any applicable effect e.g. the Compressor or the Auto Filter, affecting another audio signal indirectly. As long as the use of the audio file makes an audible difference to the end result (as opposed to silence), anything is allowed!

You can find this sample in this track freesounds.org Challenge by Frigolito . Just click on remix and get to work.

And then submit your track here https://www.audiotool.com/contest/weekly_challenge_10

Challenge Summary:

  • Create a track using the sample from feesounds.org 301024__modularsamples__oberhei
  • Everything else is up to you

Good Luck!

CLOSED: Audiotool Summer Games | Round 7 | revry

Hey everyone,

We're starting off the week with an exciting new challenge. Audiotool has teamed up with Revry, the leading streaming platform that offers a wide range of queer films, TV shows, music, and much more. https://www.revry.tv/

Since 2016, Revry has been organizing the QueerX Awards, which annually celebrate and recognize the diverse talents and contributions of the LGBTQ+ community. https://www.queerx.com/

Approximately two million viewers worldwide will be tuning in to watch this award ceremony. Past presenters, awardees, and nominees included Jennifer Lopez, Joe Biden, Bowen Yang and Patton Oswalt to name a few.

As you can imagine, a show of this caliber also requires music. And this is where you come into play.

Submit your tracks here: https://www.audiotool.com/contest/weekly_challenge_7

Co-founder and CEO of Revry, Damian Pelliccione, challenges you to produce a track for the end credits, after the grand finale of the show.

In detail, this means:

  • Produce a track that is catchy and punchy, with a theatrical musical flair
  • Any genre is allowed, as long as it's groovy
  • Music that embodies a Broadway sound is encouraged
  • We want to see how you can revitalize the credit scroll music to make people smile
  • You are allowed to submit existing tracks of yours

Keep in mind, it's a celebration of queer artists everywhere. The music should transport that spirit.

Good Luck!

Introducing our Jury: Mr Standfast

Mr. Standfast has been enchanting his listeners since the beginning of Audiotool time - 13 years ago - with his analog-sounding synth pieces. Always beautiful, never uncomfortably cheesy.

He lives out in the mountains of Virginia with several synthesizers, and resurfaces every now and then with a melody in his head.

We are thrilled that he has agreed to support us as a jury member of the Summer Games.

Beat for Vocals | Winners | Party and Meetup Update

As part of our party in LA last Saturday, the three rappers/vocalists Elle E.D., DSTRK, and po9t selected tracks from you and performed them live in front of an audience consisting of Audiotoolers and invited guests from the music industry.

By now, you have probably already heard which three beats the musicians chose. po9t started off, not letting initial technical problems faze him, and delivered an enthralling performance that was groovy and emotional. We are proud of you, po9t

He chose the track beat by Snadbrugen

Next came DSTRK, who selected the track dont know a name so heres a nice cover art made by ai by Gofkuh and, being the professional he is, delivered a fully composed Rap ballad with R&B elements. Wow!

Immediately after, Dublab Djane and host Lady C introduced Elle E.D. -who was visibly delighted to be in Daniel's Studio above the Sunset Strip on her birthday .

Elle E.D. had prepared and recorded some vocal tracks prior and rapped over the track VVS by Prod. Quinn (FL Era) And it sounded great, as we think. Well done, Elle!

The Meetup and Audiotool Party at Daniel Rowland's Studio in West Hollywood was a huge success and we’ll for sure do more of these events. During the Meetup from 2 -5pm we chatted about our new and upcoming audio engine as well as features and UI concept of our upcoming Audiotool version.

At 5pm Kepz presented our new DJ application https://mix.audiotool.com/

We welcomed more than 100 guests and the house was full at peak time. Dublab DJs Akumen and Damar Davis started with playing two awesome sets of Audiotool music, showcasing the variety of genres within Audiotool. po9t , DSTRK and Elle E.D. rapped over their challenge track pick and Jackson Hale a.k.a. Astrum captivated us with his modular synth rig.

Tlim Shug a.k.a. VLTRA performed a COOL Audiotool DJ set and supported III Camille, who freestyled over other summer games beat submissions.

We’ll share photos and videos over the next days and probably weeks - It's a lot of content we have to go through ,-)

We have received expressions of respect from many sides for the quality of the music, which was exclusively from all of you that evening. It was amazing.

Currently, the Time Signature Challenge by Jordi Moragues is running. Don't forget to participate and earn points for the calculation of the overall winner. Join here: Connect >> News >> CLOSED: Audiotool Summer Games | Round 6 | Jordi Moragues

Recreate Sound Challenge | Winners

I don't need to mention it again, but I will anyway: Cal Lycus ' task was challenging and perhaps a bit technical for most of you, but the guys who participated delivered and earned valuable points for the overall ranking. Let's just take Amp7070 , for example, who doubled his score by winning for the second time in a row and now sits at 3rd place on the leaderboard.

Here is the entry that secured his victory:

#1 when theres no pitta bread left

And here again for comparison, Cal Lycus ' original sound:

Summer Challenge Sound Design

Prize: 1 Sennheiser headphones HD 280 PRO and 1 limited Edition Audiotool T-Shirt

retro² apparently wasn't convinced by his own entry, but the jury saw it differently and awarded him the points to land him in 2nd place. And with this, he secures his position on #2 of the leaderboard.

#2 Recreate Sound Challenge

Prize: 1 limited Edition Audiotool T-Shirt

In 3rd place, we have brain-walker , who reached the top 3 for the first time but managed to climb to 5th place in the overall rankings with the bronze medal in this challenge.

#3 Recreate Sound Challenge (brainwalker's edit)

Prize: 1 limited Edition Audiotool T-Shirt

Thanks Cal for setting up this challenge.

That's the halftime standings. There are still about four challenges ahead of us, so everything can still change for the overall victory.

First of all, we congratulate Amp7070, retro², and brain-walker on their wins. If you haven't already, please send us your t-shirt size and shipping address.

Hey Audiotoolers,

Cal Lycus ' Recreate Sound Challenge was tough, but the results we had were really close. Props to all who participated.

Check out how Cal created this monster sound: Summer Challenge Sound Design

The winners will be announced tomorrow. The winners of the Beat for Vocals Challenge have probably already been spread around, but we will officially announce them again tomorrow.

But now, let's move on to round 6 with Jordi Moragues :

This way → https://www.audiotool.com/contest/weekly_challenge_6

Jordi challenges you to create a track with a different time signature than the usual 4/4. It can be 3/4, 5/4, or even more unconventional. The rest is up to your creativity.

Challenge Summary:

  • Create a track with a different time signature than 4/4
  • All time signatures allowed except 4/4
  • You can use any synths, drum computers, samples (within Audiotool Terms), and tools
  • All genres are welcome
  • Other usual rules apply (see Contest Page)
  • Deadline: September 25

Creator's Notes:

  • Complex meters like 7/8 will be valued higher than simple or compound meters like 3/4
  • Melodies should be composed to fit the time signature. They can't feel like 4/4 with something added afterwards, for example.

Enjoy and good luck!

Introducing our Jury: Jackson Hale a.k.a. Astrum

Jackson Hale, also known as Astrum , was one of our very first Audiotool superstars. Even as a young lad, initially under the name The Crazy Druminator, he took his first steps in electronic music production with us, until he quickly transformed into the Astrum we know today.

We had the pleasure of meeting him personally and witnessing his high-energy live performance at audiotool.con in Cologne back in 2013.

With Zonra, Jackson has created another alter ego and dropped some incredible albums.

We're super stoked to have Astrum on our Summer Games Jury and to have him join our party in Los Angeles on September 16th, where he will present new versions of some of his own Audiotool classics.

We can't wait!

Jay's Kitchen Sounds | Winners

Oh, that was exciting again.

This time, the result was very close. So close that even two artists have to share the second place. We haven't had that before.

The Challenge: JayFK took his microphone and collected sounds in his kitchen. All of them were of high quality, yet it wasn't easy to make something musical out of them. But you wouldn't be you if you couldn't shine even in this task. So many great entries, yet the jury had to determine three rankings.

We will start with the winner

  1. 1 Microwave complaint by Lavalamp

Jury Member and challenge Creator JayFK said about this track:

“Oh my god, awesome! The sounddesign... Aaaaahh. And I love the end with the dishwasher :-)”

Prize: 1 Sennheiser headphones HD 280 PRO and 1 limited Edition Audiotool T-Shirt

  1. 2 itchy Sounds by Olondro

Jackson Hale a.k.a. Astrum wrote about this track:

“Banger indeed. clean sound design and mix all around, atop a massive sounding bass drum”

Prize: 1 limited Edition Audiotool T-Shirt

  1. 3 Jay's Kitchen Challenge by retro²

Fritiof Palm a.k.a. Frigolito’s opinion was:

“Retro's submission displays a substantial level of craftmanship and creativity by bringing out a sizable variety of tonal sonorities out of the mostly non-tonal dry kitchen recordings in this crisp and vibrant composition. Delicious!”

As usual, the top ten scores will contribute to our overall tally on the Summer Games page. Ultimately, the participant with the highest overall score will be awarded the main Award. (will be updated during this day)

Leaderboard this way:
