Check out the page that discusses important changes to the Dropbox public folder.

A moderator will update the old post for you upon request.




Thanks Todd! I deleted the email on that long ago, so was scratching my head how to reply to Rob.

Thanks everyone. It looks like I will l have to give Dropbox a try.

Of course, I have previously used another method on this forum with SoundCloud, and you can set it up with a secret link. The file can be created directly out of the Band-in-a-Box program. I am just not sure if members here have ever been able to access my files on SoundCloud and I would like to try providing a secret link and seeing if you can indeed connect to my file "All By Myself" (ignore the typo in the link), which is one of the ones I prepared for practice purposes with a new band I play with. Here is the link:

http://soundcloud.com/grah-bonejazz/all-by-meyself/s-uxHw5

Of course, it will not be very secret putting it up here. That is not important. It is just to check that the file can be accessed and played using the link. Can it?

Thanks for your test.

I was able to play it.



Note that Soundcloud is uncertain financially. It may continue to be there but it's running out of money.

Dropbox has worked fine for a band that I play with.

The whole repertoir is in Dropbox, one folder with sheets in PDF-format (and subfolders pr tune) and one folder with audiofiles in MP3-format (and subforlders per tune).
Toplevel contains spreadsheets with set-lists for practice sessions, gigs etc.

The band leader uploads and adjusts the structure regularly as new tunes are added/removed.

You can have 15 GB stored in Dropbox before you have to pay anything so I think all band members have their account.

Soundcloud and Android don't seem to mix

My laptop connected okay. But I think Harrison hit on something. There may be some band-mates who only use an Android and some who WILL NOT connect to the Internet on any device, no matter what; same with FaceBook. I was in one band where if you didn't connect with FB, you could not be in the band.

Hope it all works out!

This is exactly where I am headed. So it does seem that Dropbox is the answer.

Correction: it seems that you can have only 2 GB of data in Dropbox without paying and not 15 GB as I stated above. It is google that have 15 GB for free.

But still - 2 GB gives you room for lots of mp3 files and PDFs. And it has so far worked well for our band with Dropbox.

If you've been a membe rfor awhile they occasionally have challenges (for which the answers are invariably on the internet if you wait a few hours) and those grant you additional storage space.  You can also refer friends and get .5GB up to 15GB I believe, which is probably where that number is from. I may or may not know someone who sat at their internship on a slow day and created 29 e-mail addresses to get to the 15GB cap a few years ago.  :/

Do they still add GB if you invite others and the join Dropbox?
We used this in a big band so each member had enough room to pull down one WAV file of a full rehearsal while I ended up with enough to store several weeks of rehearsals online...

Not sure.  They did for a very long time and their business model is market penetration. (only like 6% of customers pay). That said, the $10/month for a terabyte is pretty good. I prefer google drive because they have no file size limit so you can store basically anything there.
