Jukedeck MAKE creates unique music at the touch of a button, using artificial intelligence. Users come to the Jukedeck site, choose a style of music and other settings (such as mood, speed and exact duration) and a new piece of music based on those specifications is composed in an instant.
The product provides video creators with an incredibly simple and quick way of sourcing royalty-free, original music which is tailored precisely to their needs. During private beta testing, tracks created by the software have already received 16 million views on YouTube.
Ed Rex, Chief Executive Officer of Jukedeck, said: “If you’re making a video, searching through stock audio libraries takes hours, it’s expensive and the copyright and royalty restrictions are confusing. Our goal is to fix that. We want to give video creators a tool that lets them make the music they want in an instant. We want to make getting the right music as quick and as easy as possible.”
Victor Christou, Chief Executive Officer of Cambridge Innovation Capital, commented: “We are thrilled that Ed and the Jukedeck team have been able use the machine learning tools developed within Jukedeck to solve the increasingly painful problem of sourcing unique, tailored music for video creators in a fast, simple and cost-effective way. This funding round further validates our initial investment and allows the business to launch its exciting product globally. With the support of CIC and the other investors, we’re certain to be hearing much more from Jukedeck in the future.”
Ed Rex added: “CIC are the perfect partner for us. They spotted the potential in the technology and were able to provide funds to support our early growth alongside seed funding from the University of Cambridge. Now, they are following through and supporting us in our long-term vision as we grow into a more mature business.”
