Collaborate in audio

Soundtrap is great for when you're collaborating on the same soundfile online. You can record with your mic right into the space, or upload MP3 files, or use its loop library to create sounds. Once you're finished you could download your file as an MP3 and possibly share in Soundcloud. But, you could also share out a public link from Soundtrap itself.
