The DropBox is one of the main ways for people to distribute their tracks to SoundCloud users – whether that’s labels receiving demos, DJ’s receiving promos or studios receiving masters etc. For many it’s become an essential part of their daily workflow. And so naturally the DropBox feature received a lot of attention by a couple of projects at Music Hack Day.
As we wrote about earlier this week, our API allows developers to build lots of cool tools to make doing the things that you need to do on SoundCloud much easier. One such tool that we wanted to get you excited about today is a new app called SoundDrop. Developed at Music Hack Day by Greg Lloyd, Arthur Carabott and Robin ‘DonkDJ‘ Watson, SoundDrop makes it easy for users to audition the tracks in their DropBox in one go by taking a carefully selected sample of each track and combining them as a single track in your SoundCloud account.
It’s not quite ready for primetime yet but we wanted to whet your appetites nonetheless. Here’s a quick teaser video so that you can check it out. Tell us what you think.
