By pairing software developers with consumers who offer critique in real-time, MOD Devices, German-based effects processor developer, aims to develop products that create a community. Founder and CEO Gianfranco Ceccolini established MOD to encourage a dynamic addition to the creative economy community.
Ceccolini notes, “In this world of total connectivity, our platform catalyzes the interaction between artists and musicians with a unique community-driven approach. The direct contact provided by this group fosters the collective. This conversation drives not only the development of the audio plugins but also the devices themselves. We feel that connecting the minds behind the tools with the creative community using them is in step with a new model of digital collaboration and directness.”
This marketplace for unique ideas was inspired by the urge to create a community that can be easily adapted by beginners. While simultaneously catering to expert musicians who want to express themselves, MOD created a simple first step solution to both parties.
I invited Gianfranco on the podcast to discuss his creative economy idea in depth. We also talk about how their project was funded on Indiegogo in just 24 hours and how he built an audio processing platform that unleashes musicians’ creativity.
