Crossfader enables you to create awesome electronic music using your iPhone. No experience required.
Just as the album has given way to the single, so too will the single give way to its atomic part, the stem. Stems are to songs what tweets are to blogs. Our Crossfader app is based upon this new molecular approach to music.
Calling Crossfader an app is like calling a piano a piece of furniture.
It is a unique, motion-controlled instrument that leverages the iPhone's accelerometer, gyroscope and parallax features. Crossfader is built upon an underlying Web architecture and set of APIs that enables users to remix virtually any sound on the Internet. It has taken 10 engineers 12 months to build

In all other media, the barrier between consumer and creator has been destroyed: Twitter and blogging for the written word, Instagram for photos, and Youtube for video. It remains very challenging to create and/or mix electronic music. Until now.
The future of music is one where everything is mixable. And Crossfader is the music service for that future.
We're doing this because i) We're all deeply passionate about electronic music and ii) This opportunity is incalculably large
