5 Cloud Storage Options for Musicians

When searching for the optimal cloud storage platform for your music, a few important factors must be considered prior to selecting a provider. For starters, you want to confirm the storage space is adequate and the platform is user-friendly, secure and reliable. And should the cloud storage provider experience technical difficulties, you need to understand how they get things back up and running. Price is another important element because space can fill up quickly, so it needs to be scalable.

With these factors in mind, here are some of the best cloud storage options for musicians, producers and DJs:

Gobbler

This platform offers unlimited storage space and rapid transfer capabilities so you can rest assured the project files you’ve worked so diligently on are safe and sound while sharing them with others. Plus, Gobbler is infused with military-grade encryption to ensure your files aren’t hacked. Best of all, it is compatible with most digital audio workstations on the market and you can sign up for free.

DJ Backup

Similar to Gobbler, this cloud storage platform allows you to back up, share and access files javascript:noop()while on the go. So when you receive a request to hear a particular track or you simply want to show off your work while out and about, the digital app has you covered. DJ Backup also allows you to collaborate with others across the globe on projects while still knowing that your files are secure with military-grade security. And you never have to schedule a backup because the platform automatically handles it for you. You can test DJ Backup with a free trial.

Splice

When you download Splice to your desktop, you can collaborate with others on projects, track progress and receive feedback on particular musical selections. But, perhaps its most impressive feature is the speed of its automatic upload capabilities to the cloud, which are 10 times the rate of Dropbox. Splice is compatible with Logic Pro X, Apleton Live 8+, GarageBand and FL Studio 11. Users can sign up free of charge.

SoundCloud

SoundCloud is a very popular cloud storage solution for musicians worldwide. The platform offers three hours of storage space, free of change. It also gives you the ability to share your music with the masses through social media platforms or directly on your SoundCloud page. This way you can get feedback on your music directly through the platform. Should you decide to sign up for a professional plan, you can track listeners and the number of plays by geographic location.

SugarSync

Although it doesn’t specifically cater to musicians, Sugar Sync is another reputable cloud storage platform that facilitates the secure upload, backup and sharing of digital files. You can collaborate with others and access files while offline if they are already synced to the cloud. And files can be retrieved, even if you’re away from your digital workstation, via the iOS and Android apps. You can give SugarSync a try with a 30-day free trial.
