NY-based DubFiler describes their service as, "a different kind of file management site. We are DJ’s, producers, promoters and we’re constantly slinging files around – tune ideas, so-and-so’s newest track, your new drum track. But we’re tired of sites where the files expire and we have to reupload them. We’re tired of flashing banners and typing in cryptic passwords. We’re tired of waiting 60 seconds for our downloads to begin."
The service is basically a way for musicians to share their music inside a network. DubFiler charges $5/month for 500mb of storage.
The service is very easy to use. You upload a song and then are presented with a link that you can share with others. When visitors come to DubFiler via the link, they are presented with two options: play or download. DubFiler also provides stats on how many downloads, plays have taken place for each song.
I’d like to see DubFiler add messaging options so that listeners can leave feedback for the artist. Perhaps the messaging could even allow listeners to comment on a specific portion of the music timeline similar to Viddler’s in-video-stream commenting.
