In my humble opinion there is nothing better than getting in the studio with other musicians, jamming out, and coming up with a masterpiece, or at least a song everyone in the room is feelin’. I also have to admit there is something really dope about connecting with musicians from across the globe and being able to complete a song or two without ever stepping foot in the same room. BandLab is here to help musicians out with the latter.
Most musicians and bands would agree that new songs can be quite fragile. Quickly capturing and nurturing song ideas is the concept behind, BandLab, the first cloud-based platform (iOS, Android and Web) where musicians can capture their ideas and create/produce new songs with unprecedented levels of collaboration with other musicians and even fans anywhere in the world.
After more than a year in testing, BandLab version 2.0 officially launches worldwide today and musicians/bands can sign up for free at bandlab.com or download the free BandLab mobile app from iTunes or Google Play.
With BandLab, musicians/bands can:
Capture Song Ideas — Capture, store and recall song ideas in the cloud wherever and whenever.
Develop Songs — Develop ideas into songs alone or with musicians from anywhere in the BandLab community. Collaborate on multi-track projects without worrying about the tools with BandLab’s built-in Mix Editor.
Unprecedented Collaboration — Invite other music creators and fans on the creative journey by sharing unreleased versions and “works in progress” for immediate feedback. In-app “Chat” feature enables users to easily communicate in real time with band members and meet new collaborators from around the world. New “Forking” feature allows musicians to create their own versions of other community members’ songs and ideas for even more creative inspiration.
“BandLab is about capturing ideas, nurturing them with others and sharing them with the world,” said Meng Ru Kuok, CEO and co-founder, BandLab. “Our platform enables musicians to be ready whenever inspiration strikes and to build on their ideas seamlessly using any connected device.”
