In the case of Soundtrap, doling out unlimited cloud-based storage gives it an edge over free music editing tools like Audacity and GarageBand (which both require a third-party provider like Dropbox for unlimited storage).
Given that the premium versions of Soundtrap are priced at $14. 99 for podcasting and $9. 99 for music, most amateur users will likely stick with the basic plan.
"This new version gives freedom to anyone who likes to be creative with music or podcasts, and we are very excited to see what our users will do with all the new capacity," said Per Emanuelsson, managing director of Soundtrap at Spotify in a press release.
Soundtrap, the cloud-based editing tool for music and podcasts, has decided to throw in free unlimited storage for its non-paying members.
But even without those added features, Soundtrap’s unpaid users are still scoring a tremendous deal; free editing software with no limits on storage.
Previously, Soundtrap’s basic plan limited users to only five saved songs or projects.
The basic music recording tool will also grant users access to double the number of music loops (2,210, compared to only 750 before) and more software instruments.
Soundtrap will no doubt score some new users out of the move, even if they don’t end up purchasing the premium plan.
In expanding its basic offerings, Soundtrap is intentionally following in parent company Spotify’s footsteps.
