Audio Industry for MusiCares COVID-19 Relief

 Soren (aka Luftrum) is a well-known sound designer from Denmark. The past ten years he has organized a charitable fundraising in October, asking companies in the audio industry for software and hardware donations to be placed on auction for a good cause. That way, they have raised more than $185.000 for Save the Children, $17.000 for Plastic Oceans and $30.000 for WWF over the years.

COVID-19 has had an impact on everything this year, including our music industry. It has affected thousands of composers, producers and music creators who are left with an uncertain future, so this year we are giving back to our peers by raising funds to MusiCares COVID-19 Relief.

MusiCares COVID-19 Relief is a partnership between MusiCares and the Recording Academy (GRAMMY) and has helped upwards of 18.000 music industry artists and professionals affected by the pandemic, focusing on the most pressing needs and prioritizing those who experience a medical, dental, mental health, insurance, substance abuse or eviction crisis.

Throughout October you will be able to bid on DAW’s, plugins, Eurorack modules, effect bundles, sample libraries etc. Currently some 20 developers are already contributing and there are stuff from Sonokinetic, MeldaProduction, Voxengo, Noiiz, Celemony and many more and everyday during October new contributions will be added and everything starts at $5.
