Since 2013, music creation and collaboration platform Splice has aimed to change the way artists and producers share samples, stems, patches and ultimately music. Now, it happily announces it has paid participating artists $5 million in revenue, as well as earned $35 Million in funding to continue its mission.
“Our mission is simple: to help musicians maximize their potential,” Splice CEO and co-founder Steve Martocci is quoted in a press release. “Our vision is big: to transform the way musicians create and collaborate, to foster a culture of openness in music, and to uncover new revenue streams for artists through artist-to-artist marketplaces."
One of Splice's favorite features is its extensive, royalty-free sample library. Artists including Mr. Oizo and KRANE have monetized their signature sound while allowing other producers the chance to play with their palette.
