With only a few days left of 2018, we wanted to wrap it up together with you! First of all, we’d like to say thank you to all of you fantastic users who are hanging in there, giving us feedback and developing your music production skills with us. Secondly, we want to sum up our top moments of the year: 2018 has been big for us!
April 2018 – Soundation was born (again). Our rebirth was announced and new journey began. We thought it was time for a change and brought in a new team of experts in management, design, communication, development and more, as well as new investments in order to maximize Soundation’s potential.

May 2018 – Kai joined the Community. Nobody missed it when Soundation’s new client success hero / music master Kai entered the community in May and brought on structure, quick answers and fun challenges.
September 2018 – We said goodbye to orange. After working closely together with Kurppa Hosk to develop a new simple and precise visual identity for Soundation, we started rolling it out across all our external channels. Check it out here.
October 2018 – Our first Remix Challenge went live. In collaboration with BMG, we launched our first Remix Challenge. The winner got to release their remix together with BMG and Swedish pop artist Nova Miller.
November 2018 – We became faster than anyone. It was a proud moment for us to be the first music production software to run on WebAssembly Threads, which contributed to considerably improved speed, performance and stability. Read more here.
December 2018 – The new Soundation studio was revealed. We ended 2018 with the most important update of all – the launch of our new studio with a fresh UI and improved performance. Read all about it in Audio Newsroom’s amazing review.
