n-Track Debuts Musical Collaboration App, Songtree

The creators of iOS / Windows DAW, n-Track Studio, today released Songtree, an app for the collaborative creation of musical tracks.

Designed to be easy to use and with a branching “tree” interface, Songtree enables the evolution of a single song along different paths (branches, we suppose, if you’re going to stick with the tree analogy). Whenever another user overdubs or adds to an existing song, a new branch gets added to the “song-tree.”

In addition to being a collaborative music creation app, Songtree also positions itself as a “community for collaborative music making.”

Users open the app and browse the latest songs that have been posted, pick a track to work on, then open the built-in audio recorder view.

The user then records their track on top of the base track by playing the user’s instrument, clicking the Share button to post the track back to the Songtree music community.

As new tracks are posted a ‘tree’ of songs gradually grows, with each branch derived from the preceeding.

System requirements. The Songtree app requires iOS 7.0 or later for use with iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, and is available via the App Store. (App is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus.) The Android version of Songtree is still in beta, but prospective users can sign up to be beta testers on the Songtree site.
