Indaba Music: Get Your Jam On
Indaba Music is a new social music site where members can exchange musical ideas in the form of mp3's and mix and master songs together. The idea is that each member posts guitar riffs, melody ideas, drum loops, etc. and through the Indaba search engine others can preview and use those musical ideas. What you end up with is a song that is essentially written by people from all over the world.
For example, a member's home page could contain a simple 4 bar guitar riff. That user may want a bass line to accompany his riff. So, he goes onto the search engine and types Rock Bass Line and up pops other users who have posted bass lines. Indaba's online editor lets you import the audio, set levels, and BOOM, you've got yourself the beginnings of a song.
Indaba also supports those musicians who like to mix and remix. You can set your profile as solely a mixer and production assistant and even receive payment for your mixing abilities through PayPal.
Whether you're amateur or professional musician you'll find something fun. Check it out HERE
