About Soundtrap

Soundtrap is a cloud-based digital audio workstation (DAW) that is reimagining how music and podcasts are created. Made by music producers, songwriters, and audio experts, our goal is to help you unlock your creative potential.

Three people are looking at the Soundtrap Studio on a computer in the distance. The Soundtrap Studio is blurred in the distance. The person at the forefront of the image has a microphone, and is wearing headphones. The other two people are slightly blurry and out of focus in the image.

We are an eclectic team of engineers, designers, and music producers passionate about music & technology.

Three devices are shown displaying Soundtrap Studio: a laptop, a mobile device, and an iPad/tablet. The studio is shown in dark mode on the laptop and iPad/tablet, and it is shown in light mode on the mobile. This is a graphic image. It has a black background behind the three devices.


We believe that all creative tools should be easily available, regardless of your musical education or location. Soundtrap runs in a web browser, allowing you to create whenever, wherever. Add collaborators directly to your session and work together in real-time. With new loops and sounds added every 2 weeks, we make sure your musical palette is constantly stocked, so you can spend more time on what you do best—creating!

Soundtrap was launched in 2013, as the world's first web-based, cross-platform, collaborative music recording studio. Founded by Per Emanuelsson, Björn Melinder, Fredrik Posse, Gabriel Sjöberg and Magnus Svedjebratt in Stockholm, Sweden.

In 2014, Soundtrap was featured at Google I/O in San Francisco for its ground-breaking technology and collaborative features. The following year, Soundtrap won the AASL award "Best Website for Teaching & Learning" for its ease of use in the classroom. Rapid growth soon followed in both the consumer and education space. Today, Soundtrap has become the preferred audio recording tool by Music Makers and Educators globally.
