S2 E7: Ryan Gruss, The Loop Loft Founder and CEO, Acquired by Native Instruments

Mon Mar 12 2018 (28:47)

Ryan Gruss is one of today’s most successful #drumtrepreneurs. Dissatisfied with the quality of stock GarageBand loops, he made his own. Ryan built, and recently sold his company, The Loop Loft, to Native Instruments in under a decade. The Loop Loft creates loops by working with name brand musicians such as Omar Hakim, Simon Phillips, Matt Chamberlain, and many other drummers and other instrumentalists so that music makers can create songs, loops, and practice tracks that have human spirit. Wouldn’t you rather practice with Janek Gwizdala’s bass through your laptop than your Rhythm Watch’s shrill pulse? Now part of Native Instruments as Director of Product – Content, Ryan is free to focus on creating, while the Native team handles all the back-office business stuff. Pretty great!
