Is the current standard for long distance file sharing amongst other S1 users gonna be cloud based sites like Dropbox? a friend and i are gonna work a bit on a project soon, so just looking for the most effective way to swap ideas back and forth.

cheers!

Check out Gobbler. You get 5GB free and their App makes it easy to share project sessions, though the Windows App is not as robust as the MAC currently.

We use Dropbox in our band.
Its awesome, in just over a year I have 50 gigabytes... and that's with no purchase of extra space.
As far as I can tell, it's from using "Camera upload" and having 4 friends install it (2 band members).

I usually export stems for them to mix and play with themselves.

And 50 gigabytes holds a lot of wave files.

I haven't tried sharing project files, think it would be too messy, but maybe not.

Just the standard methodology works fine.

You trade mp3/wma files until you get what you want then compress the wav with monkey audio and email that.

Interested to hear how it works with gobbler when you get it working.

Gobbler compresses files before transmission, so you'll see faster transfers and use less file space than with the standard cloud alternatives.

So, i'm revisiting this thread to let any of you that are interested know that Gobbler is freakin sweet! It's apparently designed with musicians in mind for the sole reason of transferring files between users. so easy to use. was gonna try drop box too,but just figured if it aint broke....


A big for the Gobbler!

I doubt a big name artist or hit song writers would transfer their files by using these cloud based easy point and click interfaces to transfer files. It is not that pricey or difficult to set up an FTP site for your use to do the same thing. That is secure.
I find this interesting:


4.3 Limited License to Customer Content. You retain copyright and any other rights you already hold in your Customer Content, except as otherwise specifically provided in this Agreement. However, Gobbler needs certain rights to store, transmit, adapt and otherwise use the Customer Content you provide in order to provide you with the Service.

This license in no way affects the private nature of information you post. You may terminate this license with respect to any particular Customer Content posted to the Gobbler website by deleting the information from the Service, except that in the event that another party using the Service has saved the Customer Content and is storing it through the Service, then the license shall continue as needed to continue to provide the Service to such party. Unless the license granted by you to Gobbler is terminated in accordance with these Terms of Use, such license will be perpetual and irrevocable.


I would like to own Gobbler so I could gobble up all your songs to make my own samples and get all your song ideas. I wish I would have come up with that idea first. I prefer a secure FTP site.

ya... don't really care about "big name artists" or "hit" song writers the service works well for sharing unfinished work between users using the same DAW. I would never use it to store my finished files... It is however a means to an end when you just can't seem to get together with the other artist.

btw, is it difficult to set up a secure ftp site? I'm not opposed to that idea either

Well, I know a few decent named artists and they mostly use Gobbler. But overall, most average independant musicians don't have access to FTP services or just flat out won't pay for it. I run a pretty decent business with support videos and mixing and mastering and Gobbler is nearly as fast and less complex than FTP. With Gobbler, why should any independent pay for for a service like that.

Woodbeast, you're in a good position with FTP because you use it for your business so you're luck there. For the rest of us, Gobbler is a better option and growing more and more with professionals in part cause it's free if you need it.

Woodbeast could better answer that. But I'm sure it is more secure overall and if the server is at your house, it's the ultimate backup system. And at times, light years faster.

If you have a commercial web host (Go Daddy, whatever) it's likely that you also have FTP and have just never used it. Most web services come with FTP accounts, but you have to create them and their passwords to use them.

Dropbox and similar is only really a better choice for most because....

- It's automatic and easier for most non-technical people.
- You don't use up a lot of bandwidth on your own server, which might cost more if you have bandwidth limits.

But FTP is easy enough. Just create a discreet ftp account for each person you collab with (or one for everyone) and get them setup with Filezilla or something. They'll only have access to the one folder.

Of course, unlike Dropbox and similar, FTP won't auto download to your local system when somebody uploads something.

The great thing about Gobbler is, that is doesn't upload files again that are already in the cloud, thus saving time and bandwidth when you are working together on a project and are exchanging the files back and forth several times.
Same with downloading by the way. Don't know how this is handled by Dropbox, though.

Tis all good guys. Gooble on or Dropbox on.
Looks like Lmike knows what I am saying.
FTP COMPLEX? It may be for some people but if you know how to enter a user name and password, IP Address in a window you will be good to go.
