    Today I came across this app called Scratch Track. The app lets you record song ideas and easily share them with bandmates to foster collaboration and keep everything in one spot. Here’s the founder on Medium talking about the app:

    The concept for Scratch Track came from years of playing in DIY/punk bands, where musicians are always adapting to the latest, cheapest recording tools for capturing basic ideas. In recent years, we’ve found ourselves and many others relying heavily on the Voice Memo app (a simple recording tool that comes pre-installed on the iPhone). Capturing new ideas with Voice Memo was incredibly easy, but unfortunately, everything after that was a struggle.

    You can watch a quick trailer here. The group sharing/collaboration feature is pretty great. I think being able to add notes and tags to the song clips would help with searching and sorting. This is definitely an app I’ll be keeping an eye on.

    Hmmmm, I just added an app that sounds exactly like this called BandLab. I wonder which is better.

    Been using it for a couple weeks now with a friend to spur creativity. I haven’t used it in a couple weeks due to being super busy, but they plan to implement track stacking (if they haven’t already) at some point which super cool and will vastly up the quality of collab that this app provides.

    Maybe it was a sponsored post and didn't want to draw attention? either way i think it adds to the appeal.
