Listen to Shapeways’ Community Manager Ana and I talk about The Vibe at SXSW in Austin last week:

Want to touch the first sound you ever created? Want to carry your child’s first words around with you every day? No matter which sound you care about most, The Vibe by Shapeways lets you keep it in your pocket *and* protect your iPhone at the same time. Pretty rad.

Shapeways created a super straight-forward way for you to print your sound as an iPhone case. Head over to our App Gallery to access the app, connect your SoundCloud account and select your sound:

David Pro Tools + SoundCloud

Love Pro Tools? Love SoundCloud? Now using them together just got easier. Avid’s latest update to their cutting-edge audio production software includes sharing to SoundCloud – from creation to utilizing your online community, Pro Tools 10 has you covered.

Pro Tools 10

 

Pro Tools is one of the most popular audio production software choices for recording, composing, editing and mixing both music and sound used by leading music studios and Hollywood sound editors (e.g. Pro Tools was used in the making of movies such as Gladiator and Mission Impossible 2). The SoundCloud integration offers audio makers the freedom to collaborate and effortlessly share their works, whether it be a hit single, the soundtrack for a TV commercial or the sound effects for your favorite video game.

With SoundCloud baked into Pro Tools 10,  audio producers from all fields can share their sounds privately with collaborators for feedback or share polished works to the world. Throughout the creative process, Pro Tools and SoundCloud make audio production and promotion easier.

In addition to SoundCloud, other key features in the update include Clip Gain, multiple file formats supported within one session and higher resolution sound with more headroom. Find out about all the new features in Pro Tools 10 here.

“SoundCloud’s integration with Avid lets professionals collaborate and share the sounds they create more easily with colleagues and clients,” said Alexander Ljung, founder and CEO of SoundCloud. “As someone who has worked extensively with Pro Tools, it’s also a personal achievement to see SoundCloud integrated so well with the latest version of the leading audio production software.”

SoundCloud and Avid are giving away a copy of Pro Tools 10 to an active member of the SoundCloud community who can let us know how SoundCloud sharing in Pro Tools will help improve your work flow.  Share your recorded explanation with SoundCloud.com/pro-tools-contest .
