Soundtrap is an easy-to-use audio creation studio under the umbrella of Spotify. It’s cloud based, has collaborative features and works on almost all devices. Great musicians and artists - established or not - shouldn't have to be tech-savvy on audio engineering, so we are making it possible for almost anyone to be able to focus on their creativity and not the complexity that comes with many recording and editing tools today.
