What is Soundtrap?
Soundtrap, the online music studio, has been gaining a lot of traction recently having just received $6 million dollars in Series A funding. It's a cloud-based music and audio recording studio that is essentially a multiplaftorm freeware version of garageband that can be used across IOS, Android, Chromebook, Mac and Windows. It's a great little tool for music making that currently has a lot of users in the education system being an official Google for Education Partner.
Is Soundtrap free?
There's a lot of features you'd expect from a traditional DAW included in the free version, but if you want to take your projects a bit further and gain more advanced features like Autotune (by Antares nonetheless), Guitar / Bass amp rigs and video collaboration, you can pay for the premium ($9.59 a month) or pro ($4.79 a month) versions. Here's a little video from Soundtrap to explain more:
Along with the ability to create your own songs, you can post them to your public profile and communicate with other users, opening up possibilities for collaborations and getting your music heard. Check out more info over on the Soundtrap website: http://www.soundtrap.com/
