Music is, and has always been, a universal language capable of bringing people together. Dissuaded by steep learning curves and an image-driven industry, relatively few of us have the courage to truly express ourselves through music. By empowering anybody with the tools to enjoy, create, and perform music naturally and intuitively, we seek to keep music core to the human experience for everyone. Originally developed as a solution for computer musicians to make music with a guitar, the first gTar prototypes were developed in a garage in Cupertino, CA. As Incident grew our team spent short periods of time in various work spaces, including a renovated icelandic ferryboat in San Francisco's Mission Bay, before settling into our current office in San Francisco.
