What is AudioSauna?
AudioSauna is an online application that allows you to create music. It has a digital keyboard and a mixing panel, just like a real electronic music artist would use. You can use all kinds of sounds and imitate other instruments. You don't even need to know how to read musical notes to start composing!
What makes AudioSauna so much fun?
This website gives you the chance to become a real electronic musician, just like Daft Punk or Skrillex. You can use the keyboard to create the music you want and then add all kinds of effects to it with the mixing panel.

It's super easy to use and most importantly: it's free!
