Last year we took Soundation, the browser-based music studio, for a spin and we liked what we saw. The Swedish company is now launching a brand new real-time collaboration feature, Collab Live. According to Soundation, this feature enables seamless collaboration and lets creators produce music in multiplayer mode. Sounds perfect for these crazy COVID-19 times, right?
“Every move you make in Collab Live is synced in real-time and 100 % seamless. It’s basically like Google Docs for music production, but even more collaborative as you can see other co-creators’ cursors, what they are working on and every action they make in the studio, as they make it”, says Adam Hasslert, CEO of Soundation. “We are the first music creation service to take collaboration to this level”.
Collab Live enables creators to produce music together in real-time, removing the need to manually sync projects, making it easy to collaborate on songs whether they’re working simultaneously or in different sessions. All you need is a laptop and an internet connection. The technology also allows for live streams and webinars for learning purposes, as well as encouraging music creators to engage with their fans on projects.
The feature lets you follow every move your co-creator makes in real-time, from the movement of the cursor to what channel and region they’re working on and the changes they make, even as they’re being made. Soundation has also set up an official Discord server, making it easy to find other creators to collaborate with, communicate with your co-creator, create groups and share inspiration and updates.
Collab Live is currently in open beta available to all users, with Free Users limited to one collaboration project at a time.
