Music-making platform Splice is having a refocus within its business that involves shutting down its ‘Studio’. That’s the feature that launched in 2014 enabling musicians to collaborate when creating music tracks.
“Although the potential of Studio to help music creators collaborate was core to our founding ideology, this feature hasn’t been a focus for us since 2017,” wrote CEO Kakul Srivastava in Splice’s announcement.
“Simply put, we haven’t been able to provide the quality of experience of which we can be proud. In fact, keeping it functional has actually slowed us down from delivering more value, faster.”
Studio is shutting down in stages between now and 31 May. Srivastava indicated that the focus will now be firmly on “the parts of Splice that matter most to you: our Sounds product and new, better search and AI-based exploration tools for our industry-leading catalog of samples, as well as our growing rent-to-own Gear marketplace featuring top plugins and DAWs”.
