First of all they’re GIVING AWAY 5Gigs of free storage in the cloud, called CloudDrive. This isn’t as good as Microsoft’s unbelievable 25 Gigs on SkyDrive (see my blog of last July)… but Amazon’s service is rock-solid, and their Cloud has some nifty features, letting you upload virtually anything in a digital format: documents, music, etc.
But even better is their Cloud Player service. This reminds me a lot of a cross between iTunes and SoundCloud. Cloud Player lets you buy music, store music, play music, download music, listen on your Android, your PC and other devices from the cloud. It comes with an app for Android, and for your PC that is a mp3 Cloud Player application.
Here’s the reason this, and other online programs are so handy for VO’s. Like SoundCloud and AudioBoo, the Amazon Cloud Player will let you link back to your stored sound files…like DEMOS?!!…and then you can handily post the link to places like FaceBook, Twitter, your Website, and others so people can hear your demos wherever they land.
