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

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.
