Stockholm-based, Spotify-owned Soundtrap is releasing a new version of its free tier which will allow podcasters to create and save as many multi-track projects as they want.
This unlimited capacity has until now only been available for paying subscribers.
Soundtrap is an online collaborative music and podcast recording studio that was acquired by Spotify in 2017.
The company launched a podcast recording, editing and publishing tool called Soundtrap for Storytellers last month.
Soundtrap allows users to connect and work on the same song or podcast in real time using any connected device.
Soundtrap’s free version previously allowed just five stored projects. It also features 2,210 free music loops and 210 software instruments.
“Soundtrap’s new, no-fee product follows our parent company Spotify’s revamped free tier implemented a year ago. We’re joining Spotify’s lead in improving what’s available to those who use our basic, no-fee product.”

“This new version gives freedom to anyone who likes to be creative with music or podcasts, and we are very excited to see what our users will do with all the new capacity,” said Per Emanuelsson, Managing Director of Soundtrap at Spotify.
“Any creator will now be able to store all their great ideas. They can keep them around for future reference and then share them with friends to collaborate or edit them as suits their needs.”
Added Emanuelsson: “Soundtrap’s new, no-fee product follows our parent company Spotify’s revamped free tier implemented a year ago. We’re joining Spotify’s lead in improving what’s available to those who use our basic, no-fee product.
“Offering an even richer palette of tools for free online music- and podcast-making inspires greater creativity and is likely to increase the love of music and storytelling for everyone passionate about connecting and creating.”Music Business Worldwide
