BandLab Technologies is a Singapore-based global company offering online music production services, audio hardware and accessories. It was founded in 2014 by Meng Ru Kuok and Steve Skillings.
Following several minor acquisitions, BandLab acquired a 49% share in the Rolling Stone magazine in September 2016, and bought the IP of music production software developer Cakewalk from Gibson in February 2018.
BandLab was founded by Singaporean resident Meng Ru Kuok, a Mathematics graduate from Cambridge University, and Steve Skillings, CEO and founder of audio accessory maker JamHub  from Whitinsville, Massachusetts. Meng Ru is a third son of the agricultural magnate Kuok Khoon Hong, a founder of Wilmar International. Meng Ru acquired music retail network Swee Lee  in 2012 and became its managing director; he met Skillings while representing his JamHub brand. 
Skillings came with the idea of a cloud-based digital audio workstation (DAW), which has evolved into BandLab - an all-in-one music creation platform where musicians could make, collaborate on and share their music.  BandLab service was launched in November 2015 after 9 months of initial development,  combining music making tools with social features like video sharing and messaging.
In September 2016 BandLab received Microsoft Start-up Partner of the Year Award. 
In December 2017 BandLab announced that it would "relaunch" two previously defunct brands - Harmony with a line of electric guitars and amps, and Teisco with analog guitar effect pedals. 
In July 2016, BandLab acquired Composr,  an iOS audio recording and music making app from Netherlands;  founder Nick den Engelsman joined BandLab development team and moved his users to the BandLab platform.
In February 2017, BandLab acquired Cognosonic Pte Ltd. from Singapore, makers of AudioStretch, a music transcription app capable of manipulating audio playback speed and pitch in a non-destructive way.
