LANDR now lets its users share music securely

A touching moment.
A touching moment.

Having shaken things up with its automated mastering service, LANDR is now looking to offer its users a better way of sharing their music securely.

LANDR Sharing also enables you to stream your tracks and collect feedback, and offers end-to-end content encryption. Once you've uploaded your content, you can share it with whoever you like and specify for how long it will be available - an hour, two hours, a day or a week. You can also see who's listened and who hasn't.

If a track happens to leak, you'll be able to use the built-in watermarking technology to try and find out who was responsible.

To celebrate the launch of the service, LANDR is giving you the opportunity to get a track mixed by Grammy-award winning engineer Derek 'MixedByAli' Ali (Top Dawg Entertainment, Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q).

To enter the contest, send an original track to contest@landr.com and share it with two other people (via this link (opens in new tab)). Tracks will be judged on their "originality, taste, vibe, aesthetic and production ingenuity," by Ali and LANDR, with the winners announced on 5 September ahead of a remote mixing session later in the month.

I’m the Deputy Editor of MusicRadar, having worked on the site since its launch in 2007. I previously spent eight years working on our sister magazine, Computer Music. I’ve been playing the piano, gigging in bands and failing to finish tracks at home for more than 30 years, 24 of which I’ve also spent writing about music and the ever-changing technology used to make it.
