Smule believes that music is much more than just listening—it's about creating, sharing, discovering, participating, and connecting with people. That it is the original social network with the power to break down barriers, touch souls and bring people together from all over the world. In 2008, Smule set out to create apps that enabled anyone to create, discover, love and enjoy music. Over 125 million people have used Smule's apps. And they are creating communities, meeting new like-minded friends, and having fun making music together on Smule. Smule launched as a creator of Interactive Sonic Media for mobile platforms. Smule's first product, Sonic Lighter, is a virtual lighter iPhone application that launched on September 24, 2008. Sonic Lighter is the first application built on a new audio programming language called ChucK. Smule launched Ocarina on November 8, 2008. Ocarina transformed the iPhone into true wind musical instrument and allowed the player to hear others play the instrument around the world, and has experienced over half a million downloads. Smule was founded in 2008 by CEO Jeff Smith and CTO/CCO Dr. Ge Wang. Jeff Smith previously co-founded and ran Tumbleweed, an email security software company which he took public on the Nasdaq and grew to $50M in sales before stepping down as CEO. CTO/CCO Dr. Wang is a Stanford professor at the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA), the chief architect of the ChucK programming language, the founding director of the Stanford Laptop Orchestra (SLOrk) and the Stanford Mobile Phone Orchestra (MoPhO). Along with Jeff and Ge, Smule was founded by a group of Stanford and Princeton music PhD's and developers.
