Canadian startup BeatConnect is one of the companies offering a new spin on digital audio workstations (DAWs) with an emphasis on remote collaboration. Now it has raised a funding round of CAD$3m (around $2.2m) to continue building its product and business.

Led by FICC with participation from Anges Québec and Triptyq Capital, the round will support BeatConnect’s drive to sign up more producers and musicians. Its service includes a shared sequencer, cloud storage and video chat features, and like other music creation / education startups, it’s aiming to be used in schools and by students, as well as by musicians of all levels.

“We’re creating an accessible microcosm,” said co-founder Alexandre Turbide. “You make something, you share it with everyone, people listen to it and give feedback, and then make something of their own. It motivates users to explore and share their creativity, and it does that in an enjoyable, accessible way.”
