AudioStack has raised a £2.5 million pre-Series A round led by Quadri Ventures to revolutionise large-scale audio production for enterprises through artificial intelligence.
AudioStack’s technology suite provides an end-to-end platform with the capability to scale audio production without sacrificing quality – from voice overs, to audio spots, dynamic creatives, custom brand voice synthesis (voice cloning), sound design, mastering and delivery.
The London-based startup says it allows studio quality audio assets to be created faster than real-time, empowering users to create thousands of variations of audio assets, ensuring better quality audio based on voice and language – and reducing the turnaround time for audio production from several days down to a few hours or even minutes.
Led by co-founders Dr Timo Kunz, Peadar Coyle and Björn Ühss, the company is working with some of the world’s largest ad agencies ranging from Omnicom to Publicis, publishers such as Acast and iHeart, and global brands spanning McDonald’s, Porsche and Mountain Dew.
“This funding round will enable us to continue our global growth and double down on the business cases that are working so well: we have been helping our customers realise enormous savings throughout their creative processes while enabling them to massively scale the output of their production to levels they never dreamed of, allowing us to supercharge creativity,” said Dr Kunz.
The funding round was supported by existing investors including prominent angel investor Fred Destin and media investor and former CEO of AdsWizz, Alexis van de Wyer, who sits on the board.
He commented: “There is huge market potential for AudioStack and this pre-Series A round will build on the impressive momentum the team have already achieved. I know from experience that large brands and agencies are crying out for a solution to the problems that hold back audio production.”
Andrew Drylie, Principal at Quadri Ventures, added: “AudioStack is setting a new standard for audio production and aims to become the leading infrastructure for audio production globally. They have an incredible team who have revolutionised an antiquated industry with a category-creating Generative AI solution.”
