Spotify Acquires Cloud-Based Recording Software Soundtrap

Spotify is getting into the field of music production! 

While most streaming platforms are sticking to providing the best music consumption service possible, Spotify has started to branch out into music production services.  The popular streaming service recently acquired Swedish start up, Soundtrap.  

The company was publicly launched in 2015 and was created to provide an intuitive, cloud based digital audio workstation (DAW).  The DAW is built into a web browser and enables users to collaborate on a project with anyone around the world at any given time.  For those of us into producing, Soundtrap has a lot of similarities to Splice but with more features. While Splice can be used to share different stems, song files and so on, Soundtrap can provide an all intensive production experience between collaborators in real time.  

The company offers free and paid subscription for their services and while details of the deal aren't public just yet, one would assume that Spotify would keep a similar model for the same services.  If you are curious to find out more about Soundtrap and everything that entails with their service, a link to their tutorials will be listed below.

What do you guys think? Are you excited that Spotify is getting into the field of music production?  Producers, will you find a way to incorporate Soundtrap into your workflow?
