Clyp was founded in 2014 by Jordan Patapoff and Tyson Ferguson. The idea was originally hatched in 2012 when Jordan wanted to record a little guitar riff he had been working on and share it with his friends online. When he began to search around the internet, he discovered that this simple audio sharing service didn’t exist. That’s when Jordan and Tyson decided to take things into their own hands and build it.
After getting out an early beta version of the product, Jordan and Tyson started to realize that this was going to be big. In January of 2014, Clyp was officially launched. What started out as a web-only product soon extended to apps on both iOS and Android. They began to notice a community of creative people starting to form around sharing audio. People were recording new songs, others were learning new languages, and we even had a couple record their soon-to-be son’s heartbeat to share with their family.
Today millions of people are listening and sharing Clyps with their friends and the Clypster community.
