Seshy: The Ultimate Collaboration Tool for Musicians
If you’re a musician or producer, you know that collaboration is the heart of creating magic. And in today’s digital age, the tools we use can make or break that collaboration. I used to use Splice Studio until the company literally handicapped it and then eventually killed it off. So I went out searching for a replacement for my collaboration products.
Enter Seshy, a game-changing platform designed to make musical collaboration seamless and efficient. I have only been using it for a short while but I am already convinced that this is a must-have tool for music producers who like to work on collaboration projects or even to maintain automatic save-as-you-go cloud-based backups.
Let’s dive into what makes Seshy stand out.
What is Seshy?
Seshy is a desktop application available for both MacOS and Windows that’s tailored for musicians and producers. It’s not just another file-sharing tool; it’s a dedicated platform for musical projects, allowing users to collaborate in real time, share updates, and keep track of versions.
Why Choose Seshy?
1. Diverse DAW Support
I personally use Seshy with Ableton Live. However, Seshy isn’t limited to one digital audio workstation (DAW). It supports multiple DAWs including:
- Logic Pro X
- Ableton Live
- Avid Pro Tools
- Bitwig Studio
This means no matter what software you or your collaborators use, Seshy has got you covered.
2. Automatic Uploads
Every time you save a project in your designated
~/Seshy folder, the platform automatically pushes your changes to the cloud. This ensures that your collaborators always have access to the latest version of the project.
3. Team-Based Collaboration
Seshy emphasizes team-based collaboration. Once you create a project, you can easily share it with your entire team in just one click. This feature is especially useful for larger projects involving multiple collaborators.
4. Version Descriptions
Whenever you upload a new version of your project, you can add a short comment. This helps team members understand the changes made, making the collaboration process smoother.
