Sonoma Wire Works has launched RiffWorld.com, an online music collaboration community for RiffWorks users. RiffWorks easy-to-use guitar recording software with built-in online collaboration and podcasting has been updated to v2.1.1 and integrated with RiffWorld.com. During the beta test, over 600 songs were created by 200 collaborators worldwide (US, Canada, UK, EU, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil and more) with no latency or distance problems. RiffWorld.com is now out of beta, and 20,000 RiffWorks users are ready to play.
Using the RiffWorks desktop recording application, up to four musicians can connect and collaborate on a song simultaneously. As a layer records, it instantly streams to other players' running RiffWorks. As the Riff loops, other players can add more. All contributions are saved on RiffWorld.com and can be opened later for further collaboration. Musicians worldwide are creating songs together online no matter how far apart they live or what time zone they are in.
On RiffWorld.com, musicians list their gear, songs, collaborations, and comments. Similar interests are linked automatically using modern social networking technology, making it easy to find people with the same musical tastes. Musicians chat about song posts and collaborations on RiffWorld.com and directly inside RiffWorks while they play. Awards go to songs with the most plays, editorial picks, and song contests wins. RiffWorld.com connects musicians who have similar interests and inspires them make more music together.
Dan Walton, VP of Technology, Sonoma Wire Works says, "Not only does RiffWorld.com showcase and connect musicians, it enables them to easily record songs together over the Internet. Bass players, guitarists, vocalists and more can make and record quality music together regardless of their locations and schedules. RiffWorld.com revolutionizes the way people create and enjoy music together."
Robert Easley, a RiffWorks user, talks about his experience on RiffWorld.com, "I tell my friends I have a pro-studio that's open 24-7 and I can sit in on any session, any time the creative urge strikes, with musicians whose skills take a back seat to no one. I can ask any one of them to throw down a track or two. If I have just the start of an idea, they help complete it in ways I would have never imagined."
