Back in 2017, Spotify acquired Soundtrap as both companies are pretty good fit for each other. However, Soundtrap always proved to be costly for content creators who had just started out since the Soundtrap Basic plan allowed up to five projects. However, the company has announced a significant change as from now on, you will be able to create unlimited projects using the service.
In a press release, Soundtrap revealed that it is removing the project caps for the Basic plan to provide similar functionalities to other paid subscription plans. Additionally, the company more than doubled the number of loops available to free users with 2,210 from previous figure of 750. However, number of the instruments will still be the same.
“This new version gives freedom to anyone who likes to be creative with music or podcasts, and we are very excited to see what our users will do with all the new capacity,” said Per Emanuelsson, managing director of Soundtrap at Spotify. “Any creator will now be able to store all their great ideas. They can keep them around for future reference and then share them with friends to collaborate or edit them as suits their needs.”
Emanuelsson continued, “Soundtrap’s new no-fee product follows our parent company Spotify’s revamped free tier implemented a year ago. We’re joining Spotify’s lead in improving what’s available to those who use our basic, no-fee product. Offering an even richer palette of tools for free online music and podcast making inspires greater creativity and is likely to increase the love of music and storytelling for everyone passionate about connecting and creating.”
This latest move from the company isn’t a surprising one considering Spotify has been aggressively promoting its podcast offerings over last couple of weeks. As the company will spend over $500 million to bring more podcasts related products in the coming years, it’s likely that Spotify is trying to bring more people on board who might have been limited by the paid plans of Soundtrap.
