My site is hosted on bluehost.com, which gives me unlimited FTP space at no additional cost, so I don’t worry about running out of space or expiring links.
I’m able to set up an anonymous FTP account for each regular client with separate passwords.
As the world becomes smaller and more studios and artists collaborate with each other remotely, it's important to grasp how to share audio files and projects over the net. Audio file sharing via the Internet currently uses four common transfer methods: cloud, perishable, direct and FTP.
Cloud type transfer is when two users share common storage space on a third-party server, often requiring an invitation from the account holder to the downloader.
This is handy for distributing rough takes and mixes to a band, which will automatically expire a week later.
Direct transfer is particularly useful on deadline projects where two parties are collaborating live via Skype or Instant Messenger.Make sure that each file is continuous and, if they have punch-ins or edits, the file must be consolidated.In Pro Tools, select the region of the overdub track from the start point of the backing track file, hold down the Shift key and click the end of the overdub region.Always label the folder for each set of files with the sample rate and bit depth and never mix multiple formats together in the same folders.To send a multi-track session to a mixer, just use the same method with all the files consolidated from the same start point.A New York producer may wish a Nashville musician to record an overdub without knowing what recording app they use.
