Audiohand launching private beta test later this week

Audiohand, a Knoxville startup that will deliver a Power Pitch at this year’s Startup Day, provides an innovative, economical way for artists to be able to record their music. In just days, all of the planning and preparations will be unveiled when Audiohand will launch a private beta test with up to 100 bands trying the app. The official date is November 1.

“The beta version is going to look pretty close to the actual product,” said Co-Founder Haseeb Qureshi.

Audiohand’s secret sauce is its ability to use multiple mobile phones to capture a musical performance and then integrate the multiple inputs properly to create one high-quality, band-sourced, stereo track.

Helping bands find an economical way to record their performances is just the first in a line of applications for the technology.

“Once we get the band sourcing down, we’re going to focus on fans,” Qureshi says.

Audiohand was a participant in the Knoxville Entrepreneur Center’s (KEC’s) inaugural “MediaWorks Accelerator.” Since July, the company has added two seasoned players – Mark Montgomery and Jonathan Sexton – as Co-Founders.
