Setmixer, a platform that allows artists to record and mix their live performances with studio quality, has raised £600,000 seed funding.

The round, led by Raw Ventures, will be used to launch its AI-assisted mixing process, which claims to create a perfect result for instant releases and prevents live performances from being lost for life.

The startup allows live performances to be recorded in full multitrack studio quality and mixed through an instant automix process. Its smart recorder is permanently connected to the mixing desk of partner venues, ensuring that every performing artist is captured in up to 64-channel studio quality. 

In 2023, Setmixer recorded over 10,000 hours of live music in full multitrack studio quality, equivalent to 1.15 years. The company was founded by Pascal de Mul, who brings extensive experience from multiple media juggernauts, including Spotify and Deezer.
