VentureBeat Homepage. Soundtrap , the cloud-based audio recording studio acquired by Spotify back in , now lets creators access an unlimited number of projects — without having to upgrade to a premium plan. Founded out of Sweden in , Soundtrap offers a Garageband-like platform that allows people to make music collaboratively or on their own and features a bunch of built-in loops, instruments, and beats to aid the creative process. While Soundtrap has always targeted podcasters, last month it expanded its offering with even more podcast-focused tools, allowing cohosts and guests to participate in the same broadcasts, regardless of their respective locations around the world. It also opened up video chat tools and transcription functionality to make podcasts searchable based on content. All of them support an unlimited number of projects while offering more than instruments and 4, loops. There has been a free Sountrap Basic tier as well, which was limited to just five projects and loops — this will now come with unlimited projects and 2, loops. The number of available instruments will remain the same. Earlier this month, Spotify also rolled out an upgrade for premium users, with a new dedicated tab for podcasts alongside its music offering.
