TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SoundForge, Inc, known for developing services based on the concept of merging IT with music equipment, announces the launch of Pedalforge.com, an audio preview site for music equipment.
About the service
This service provides users with the ability to check-out sounds and compare music equipment over the internet, which has been conventionally difficult to do without physically visiting a brick-and-mortar music store.
Some of the key features include:
- The ability to evaluate tones while actually operating the music equipment
- The ability to chat with experts
- The ability to browse reviews collected worldwide
Among these the most unique feature is the ability to try out equipment
over a browser.
Users can observe changes in the sounds in real time while actually manipulating the controls of the music equipment.
The audio preview site currently specializes in electric guitar
equipment. However, there are plans to provide service covering a
comprehensive range of musical instruments in the future.
Note that the service is compatible with both mobile devices and PCs, and is available in English, French, and Japanese.
We are planning on building 'the world's largest music store platform that can be used any time, anywhere'.
We will use IT to solve past issues of not being able to be familiar with instruments without physically entering a store, or even not being able to judge the instruments after physically visiting stores.
Our first step will be to provide the content delivery system, that we are currently developing to the global e-commerce sites within the year.
We intend to provide the means for users to gather more detailed music equipment information by providing equipment sounds, pro-level reviews, and other information to places such as Amazon and other respective music store e-commerce sites.
The company began operations in April 2014 after acquiring seed funding from Japanese seed accelerator Movida Japan.
Movida Japan is currently providing the support to further service coordination with leading companies.
