ToneStone transforms music production into entertaining, interactive experiences by providing easy tools, countless sounds, and gameplay mechanics.
Our mission is to empower the next generation of music creators.
Music-making is overdue for democratization
You can make and share amazing videos with the phone in your pocket, but musical creativity is still elusive to many. That’s why we started building ToneStone. We realized that so many people want to make music, but that the available tools weren’t great for casual creators.
Empowering people as creators, not consumers
ToneStone is founded by Greg LoPiccolo, a longtime musician with over 20 years’ of experience in the video game industry.
Greg’s journey in interactive music experiences began at Harmonix, where he led product development and oversaw titles like Guitar Hero and Rock Band. Even though these games were hugely successful, Greg always believed there was even greater potential for music and gaming.
Eventually, Greg started building ToneStone, based on the core belief that music and gaming could yield incredible creative outcomes.
By combining music with gameplay, on the scale of a platform with endless UGC possibilities, ToneStone is designed to bring musical creativity to all of you who have music in you, and want a better way to express it.
This is just the beginning
We have so many exciting features and capabilities on our roadmap. We’ve barely begun to incorporate the many, many ways in which ToneStone will deliver fun, immersive creative experiences. Here are some of the initiatives we’re working on:
Advanced music gameplay
License-free song creation for other platforms and titles
The Big Picture
ToneStone is a big, messy, and dare we say, radical project. We want ToneStone to be a new hub of musical creation, driving new music forms, genres, and scenes. Our aim is to make a platform that enables a new digital music economy — one that offers novel forms of participation for users, existing artists, and everyone in between.
