How free hosts can help you working on your music with people around the globe

by on September 17, 2012

Music2Deal is a platform for producers, songwriters and artists around the world. But what happens if you decide to record a song with somebody who lives at the back of beyond? I would like to present you some platforms and possibilities which make it easier to exchange big music files.

1. Dropbox

Dropbox is a very easy and effective way to share and exchange your files with others. It is a free service and non of your files will ever be lost, even if your laptop is totally damaged.
You can work from any computer, no matter where in the world you are and this makes it very easy to work on a song with others.

Pros: It’s free; 2GB free storage space; easy and quick

Cons: You need to register as a user

2. File-Upload

File-Upload is a free service. After a quick registration you will have access to unlimited storage space. If you don’t want to register as a user, you will only be able to upload 200 MB per upload.

Pros: Unlimited storage space; it’s free

Cons: You need to register as a user if you want to use the unlimited storage space

3. Rapidshare

Rapidshare is a free hosting platform. You need to register as a user to use the service. One negative aspect is that your files will be deleted after 30 days.

Pros: It’s free; no upload limit

Cons: You need to register as a user; your files will be deleted after 30 days

  1. Hi Mario,
    We have plenty of free sites to upload music.Seems fine.On the contrary, we have software that can download audio and video from any site robbing creators of deserved funds.I suggest creators to upload only 60-90 seconds of their work, not more.

  2. Hi Chalam,

    you may be right with your objection. But unfortunately working online is sometimes the only possibility for artists from different countries to work together. I think your advice to only upload 60-90 seconds of the work is very good, but it may also complicate the process. There should be a host that is absolutely safe from robbing, that would make it much easier!

      Hi Mario,
      It’s no advice of mine.Advice is easy to give but hard to take.No host is free from being robbed. I listened to my friend Rick Ivanoff’s songs on emusic last evening.I was glad to notice a fade out of his songs after the 60th second.emusic.com has millions of such files,no artist seems to have complained.And business is good.
