Re: Moving To The CLOUD?

I have all my music and all my work files synced between two computers via the cloud. The files my computers access sit on the hard drive, but they are synced via the cloud.

I don't know which of your options that represents, though. Probably none f the above.

I voted option 4 because there will probably be no way to totally avoid it...and it might work out o.k. for some things...but then I am old school. I would like the right to be able to have a choice!

I can't wait until it gets cheaper. I'd love to store a lot of the old music and movies I don't watch much in the cloud and just keep a small "most used" collection with me at all times.

This is why iTunes + AppleTV is awesome. You buy, you stream. No need to store anything.

Have you ever had a hard drive die and forgot to back it up? I have recently.I was left with old backup files. Which led me to moving everything (photos,music,videos,docs) to several cloud services. I think it's a security risk. But, I decided to take that chance and not deal with backup drives.
Yes, there is that. (hardware failure). I can see cloud services as backup and storage but for real time work I see trouble ahead, at least in the short/medium term, with regard to local bandwidth issues due to massive increases in multi media type traffic. If (no, when) cloud computing takes off and becomes ubiquitous there will be a lot of pressure on the ability of the internet to deliver real time services (such as accessing large files) in areas not serviced by the fastest technologies, like optical fibre vs copper.

I cant move anything to the cloud because my isp (Charter)still has a bandwidth cap. Companies are pushing this cloud shit but continuing to cap bandwidth.

Wait. How are you doing this? I mean, what cloud service is this?
Dropbox is how.
been using it for a few years now and it is awesome, especially if you produce with another person

Sugarsync

Google Drive

also their is a new kid on the block

also for deep storage check out
https://mega.co.nz/
free 50 gigs cloud.. good for archiving old files to free up some space.


i'm sure their is more.
all of them have free space.
i the cloud storage is awesome.
I have lost a few drives in my day and it is nice feeling to know when your drive goes down you don't loose anything important.

I use the Cloud now for backing up any Live Pack available for download. I'm a Live Pack hoarder :D

Yep, Google Drive to sync the desktop and laptop (and keep stuff safe).

I'm kind of deliberately not doing 'Collect all and Save' or exporting renders or stems into the Drive folder though. They'd take all week to upload on this connection, and use up all the available space.

So I still have to make sure all sample libraries and VSTs are the same on both machines, by copying directly.

I suppose I don't have a good reason to. I have a separate physical backup drive and only my laptop

I'll use dropbox to collab with others or go through my samples at my work PC. Unfortunately I can't install Ableton on my work machine LOL
