Under Recording & Delivery Capabilities on your profile, you will find numerous options for recording and delivering your performances to a client.
FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol. As the name suggests, FTP is used to transfer files between computers on a network. You can use FTP to exchange/send files.
Two very popular services you can use for sharing files are:
- Dropbox: A file hosting service where you can store and share files.
- Google Drive: A file storage and synchronization service created by Google. It allows users to store files in the cloud, share files, and edit documents, spreadsheets, and presentations with collaborators. When you have a Gmail account, the Google Drive option is free to use.
ISDN, Phone Patch, Source Connect, and ipDTL are all technologies that allow for the client to listen in and direct performances live.
ISDN and Phone Patch are the original hardware-based technologies that run over traditional telephone lines, with ISDN being the industry standard. The hardware is relatively expensive but is still very common in the industry.
Source Connect and ipDTL are computer-based technologies that connect over the internet. Both can be subscription-based, and ipDTL is even browser-based for added simplicity.
