It’s Black Friday again next week and with the current cost of living crisis, we all need to find ways of saving. Dropbox alternative pCloud has announced a raft of savings including some good free storage offers.
If you are looking for ways to protect your intellectual property (yes, that’s also your music) as well as share your demos, pCloud offers a great alternative to industry leader Dropbox.
pCloud is a relative newcomer in the market and has set its sites on being the go-to cloud service for musicians looking to further their music career. Here’s why.
Any producer will tell you that streamlining your workflow is crucial to achieving effective results. At the same time, we must all securely protect our files and be able to share them safely.
pCloud has been designed by musicians and they believe they know this better than anyone. pCloud is the music cloud for artists. So much so, they are giving 500GB for free for 3 months to music producers, DJs and musicians. We appreciate they are not mutually exclusive but you get the idea – pCloud is here for creatives.
One Size Fits All With pCloud
It’s a common issue in most studios, that one of the favoured workhorses has so little space. Over the years their local drive has gone from terabytes of space to less than 200GB. Anyone with a sample collection will tell you, that’s not going to get you far.
That’s where pCloud can help. You can get up to 16TB for a Lifetime worth of storage which is going to be good for as long as you will probably fret over the EQ of your kick drum. It’s a great offering for producers and they want to be the service for music producers and DJs.
What Do Producers Need?
Most professional sound designers, beatmakers, and producers report that they need more than 1 TB of storage space. After all you generally have to maintain the projects, DAW plugins, extensions, and a huge sample library. Especially these days with Splice dominating the desktop hard drive. And with regards to the latter no need to download from Splice twice and get a double hit on the precious credits!
Having quick access to a whole library of projects and components is a huge advantage. You easily pull those up from pCLoud Drive with the same respective folder structure and drag and drop those components. pCloud will keep your hard drive clear. You’re then clear to focus on your budding music career. One less thing to think about!
