The company was born out of the success of the Wii LoopMachine, creative music software for Nintendo Wii remotes that Yann created whilst studying for an MSc in Sound Design from the University of Edinburgh. It was featured in Make Magazine, The Independent, Develop, Engadget, and more, and resulted in a hilarious appearance on the BBC for Dragons’ Den.
