Hello, my name is Drew Richardson

What are you working on these days?


Building ambient music generators for focusing at Flowful.app. Still early stage and currently need to create enough content to fill out the playlists. I'm testing 1 to 1 with people on Reddit and have been accepted into Betalist soon, which should give me a solid idea of where to take it next.


What can the WIP community help you with right now?


If people here like ambient music while they're working then I'd be very grateful for feedback on Flowful! Although just seeing other makers ship should help me do the same. I went full time indie a couple of months ago, so I need a way to keep myself accountable now that the inital motivation high has worn off, which is where WIP should help.


What can you help others with?


Up until recently I was a Software Engineer so I know my way around modern web dev fairly well (React ect) so I might be able to help there. Also more niche - what I'm doing currently means I am getting more involved with audio generation in web browsers, mainly the Web Audio API, which can be a real pain. If I can help with that then let me know.


Something else you want to share?


I also produce dance music (mainly Drum and Bass), as a hobbyist, and have been getting further than ever with it recently. I'll be using WIP to keep myself accountable on that too.


Hi Drew, welcome to WIP! Algorithmic music sounds intriguing!

Is there any particular reason you require signup on Flowful before getting to listen to the music? I think most people would want a preview before going through the trouble of signing up, etc.

BTW, there's some other makers working on music-related products as well. So I recommend going through wip.co/products/tagged/music reaching out to anyone that seems interesting. Leaving a comment on one of their todos is quick way to reach them as it will notify them via email.

hey Marc. the forced signups is just a greedy move for me pre-launch. Just wanted to get the emails of those who I share it with so I can contact them afterwards. I'll be opening it up before launch and adding more tasters to the landing page most likely.

Thanks for the heads up, I'll make sure to check those out

Makes sense. I'd keep an eye on conversion rates though, because I suspect a lot of people do not signup and thus do not experience the product.
