We're creating the first Shared Cloud Recording Studio!
BandLab is a music creation tool based in the cloud, designed to give users safe, secure storage and access from any device, while making recording more collaborative, like songwriting.
Cloud storage offers users a number of huge advantages over traditional hard drive systems. Disk space is never an issue, and everything you upload is backed up, giving you complete protection from crashes, upgrades, catastrophic system failures, and band drama. Make as many mixes as you want, experiment, and stay organized from anywhere.
BandLab makes it easy to access your tracks, mix, and listen on any device, no matter where you are or what you're supposed to be doing. Mixing traditionally takes a lot of time, so cloud access from your mobile device will add valuable hours to your project. One of the most important aspects of recording is listening, so having your tracks available on the bus or in the office can be really helpful. And BandLab makes it easy to review other projects and mixes, thanks to instant notifications.
The ability to comment and leave feedback in BandLab is absolutely fundamental to its functionality. In-song commenting allows musicians to have a conversation, collaborating in a completely new, and yet wholly familiar, way. Any time the discussion moves forward or someone posts a new mix, users are instantly notified via e-mail, tweet, post, or with a quick glance at the BandLap app. This social style of engagement fosters creativity and has inspirational applications in projects, making it easy to invite others to listen, and to ask collaborators to try their own mixes.
Life has a way of stretching some projects out. It can be a month or more between recording and mixing sessions. When many of us get on our DAWs, their complexity asserts itself and makes the task a chore. BandLab is built to provide users with an intuitive, attractive, touch-sensitive interface and a number of opportunities for customization.
