How to collaborate

Now we use a different method for music collaboration than the users of the old versions of the website (2010-2013 and 2014-2016) were familiar with.

In fact, there are two ways to collaborate. Choose the one you like most, or use both!

1. Using the Wired network:

  • If you are on a Mac, please download the Wired Client first. The Wired Client is an application providing chat, boards, messaging and file transfers. You will use it to access the working versions of the tracks, session files, and other project-related data, as well as to discuss ideas with project members. Wired uses the TLS protocol for encrypted transport, supporting the use of a wide range of strong encryption ciphers. By the way, according to the developers, a mobile version for iPad and iPhone is coming soon!
  • Launch the Wired Client, choose a username and userpic, and connect to the studio server using the following address: 1000tracks.ddns.net. Use your log/pass to connect. If you forgot your log/pass, please contact me via Skype, Facebook, or Discord (see the Contacts section on the Home page).

2. Using other platforms:

If you are new to online music collaboration, or you cannot use my Wired server, we can discuss other options. There are external platfoms specifically designed for creative teamwork, or we can use file sharing services to send working versions of audio and session files to each other.

To learn about current and/or prospective projects, please join 1000tracks' welcome room on Discord. There is a text/voice chat as well as boards there so we can discuss ideas and work out the workflow that suits the particular project.

Discord app is free and works on all platforms and devices (computers, tablets, smartphones).

To join my Discord server:

  1. Install Discord on your device and register an account;
  2. Click this link to enter the 1000tracks' welcome room.

See you there!
