Whitelabel Support

We added a dynamically generated color banner based on org logo

We've been busy refreshing our sound templates, to make our licensing simpler and ensure the content we offer is suited to your most common AudioStack usecases. As a result, we've added a whole bunch of new Sound Templates in both the API and platform, and will be removing outdated "demo" templates at the end of May.

🚧

If you're currently using "demo" sound templates either via the platform or the AudioStack API, you will need to switch to alternative sound designs.

If you're struggling to find something that meets your needs, please contact support [at] audiostack.ai.
