Platform hoping to become the TikTok of music-making launches on App Store
A new social music-making app called Endlesss has launched on the App Store today, enabling self-isolating musicians to create collective tunes remotely.
Free to download, each Endlesss “Jamm” is a virtual musical hangout with a live chat room.
To launch the new app today, Endlesss have lined up a day of collaborative jams featuring special guests such as Imogen Heap, Coldcut's Matt Black, Flux Pavilion, Dan Le Sac, KiNK and more.
Musician and technologist Tim Exile founded Endlesss to bring the joy of spontaneous collaborative creativity to music-making in the way TikTok and Instagram did with other media. Players exchange ”Rifffs” and create an evolving piece of collaborative music together. The jam could go on for hours or you could record a 30-second riff and share it.
Built into the app are software versions of the gear in a music producer’s studio; drum machines, samplers, synths and FX.
Operating in Beta for the past year, there are already thousands of users enjoying Endlesss, but the company plan to launch a Kickstarter later in April.
The projected funds from the Kickstarter will help develop the next generation of the platform, which will include an expanded social network and professional features by offering early-bird discounts, exclusive avatars and a chance to help create the future of its features.
The core platform is free and offers an additional collection of soundpacks and FX for a £4.49 monthly subscription. The trial period has been extended from seven days to two months in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
A professional subscription tier offering lossless audio, pro features and deep integration with pro equipment will be developed as part of the Kickstarter campaign.
