To use Soundtrap, users just open a browser and log on. They can choose from over 50 virtual instruments, 1,400 royalty-free loops and 25 real-time effects. The platform has a video window where collaborators can work together in real time and create a fully formed song. Other sounds can be dropped in.

A Favorite With Educators

The simplicity has meant that Soundtrap is being used by the K - 12 and above education markets and was named “The Best Website for Teaching and Learning 2015” by the American Association of School Librarians.

Soundtrap is currently in use in 150 U.S. schools and in beta has grown from 20,000 to 120,000 users in 175 countries in five months.
