We’ve started talking about soundtracking recently – creating albums of sound recordings. As Aroundsound grows we’ve seen more people who want to create collections or albums of sounds and share those with others. Examples include bedtime stories (recorded by a grandad for his grandchildren), lessons and lectures, musical notes (ideas and drafts) and environmental collections (birdsong, nature notes).
We’ve now made it even easier than ever to create collections of sounds and share those with other with others. Anybody who joins your collection as a member can comment and even add their own sounds, plus they can be notified when you add a new sound.
You can find the ‘collections’ tab on your app, where you can create a new collection and start adding sounds. When you’re ready to share, simply change the privacy to ‘visible to the group’ and then you can invite members to join your collection. You can change the privacy at any time, back to a private collection if you prefer.
What’s more, if you are an iPhone user, you will be pleased to know that the latest app release now includes ‘trimming’ recordings, a feature we have made available in our Android app for some time. This means it’s super easy to select just the part of the recording you want to keep, and trim out anything else. The original full recording will still be saved and you’ll make an additional, new trimmed version. Pick and trim the best moments then save or share with others.
Aroundsound helps you to record, replay and share life’s moments – the everyday that is powerful without being perfectly produced. We’re calling that soundtracking. It is developing all the time both on Android and iPhone, with collections and trimming being just two of the latest features that you’ve asked for.
Download and give it a go, and please tell us what you think. We’d love to hear what’s in your soundtrack this week!
