As a company that moves many audio files, voice-over files and music files, we have tried a number of file transfer solutions over the last few years. Some services have been absolutely rubbish and ftp was too complicated for people who had not previously used it. Also, it proved a little unreliable for us.
Out of all of the services we tried, we ended up staying with YouSendIt. It has been 100% reliable, it is affordable and using YouSendIt Express (a software app for your computer), uploading files from our network is a simple process. Also, the tracking options are great.
However, although YouSendIt is highly recommended by us and we have no plans of using another provider at this time, I have noticed a fairly new contender who, unlike others, specialise in transfer of music / audio files. The service is called SoundCloud and rather than explain it in full, watch the video below.
Currently, SoundCloud seems less focussed towards business use, in my opinion, however, I will be watching its evolution and may consider using it in the future should it address my needs as a music media and production business.
