We found that we work well with people who love what they do and want to help creators. We are a bunch of music/audio nerds who believe we can change the world and fix some big problems in media. This app was launched from a jungle in Thailand so we could keep cost low and offer this service for free to users because we just wanted to help creators. This passion continues throughout the company today.
