Swedish firm Gestrument is one of the startups exploring apps as music-making tools, having been founded in 2012, and received critical acclaim for its app – also called Gestrument.

Now the company has launched a new version called Gestrument Pro, which is aimed at advanced users. The app enables musicians to compose and play with up to 16 individual instruments – using the app’s own sounds or other synths and apps connected via MIDI. The new app is being sold for $16.99 on Apple’s App Store, compared to the $6.99 cost of the original Gestrument app.

Its launch also comes after Gestrument raised some new funding: SEK 3.3m (around $376k) from investors including Almi Invest, Makrill Invest, Stångå Förvaltning and PGR Tech. Gestrument has also been awarded SEK 900k (around $103k) as a grant from the Vinnova ‘Innovative Startups’ program. The company says it plans to use these funds to continue developing its tech, as well as marketing the apps globally.
