Why YOU should have a YouSendIt account August 13, 2008

Posted by ConnorSmith in : Chit Chat, Project Studio, Troubleshooting , trackback

I’ve been getting a lot of emails asking how to transfer songs, sessions, and OMF files between computers and/or studios. Now, I’ve talked about this before, but I’d like to hit on it again, as I believe it is such an awesome tool for people in this field.

I’ll go on the record as saying: Everyone who works in pro audio should have a YouSendIt.com account.

YouSendIt.com is a great website that replaces FTP services (allowing you to quickly send large files across the internet without clogging up email boxes).

Even the free registration version is invaluable. This will let you send one file at a time, up to 100MB. This is a lot better than the average email (with a limit of around 10MB). However, the 10$ a month service is much better. You can send up to 5 files at a time, each with a size of up to 2GB. For anyone sick of paying UPS fees to send master CDs to clients (or mix files to an engineer), this is a great solution.

Now, of course, I am in no way affiliated with YouSendIt.com, but I have been using their services literally almost every day for the past few months during this busy time, and the service payed for itself in a few days.

This is also good when you need to send mixes out to clients/potential clients. Rather than sending them a compressed mp3, you can send them the full quality WAV or AIFF without problems. The client will just receive a link in their email box, which they can click on to download the file.

It’s a hell of a lot cheaper than DigiDelivery!

Amen to that!

Thousands for DigiDelivery.

I would have to recommend:

It’s new, the interface is much better, and there is a social aspect to it.
